Proposed Law Would Require Mothers To Look At Pictures Of Congressmen She Disappointing Before Having Abortion (The Onion)

WASHINGTON—Arguing that the measure would help women fully understand the consequences of their decision, members of the House of Representatives introduced a new bill this week that would require anyone seeking an abortion to view images of the congressmen she will disappoint prior to undergoing the procedure. “Before any pregnancy can be terminated, women will have a chance to see the faces of these politicians, which will help them make an informed decision as to whether they’d really like to go through with letting down an elected public servant,” Rep. Trent Franks (R-AZ) said of the proposed law, which also mandates that women listen to audio of the lawmakers’ talking points on when life begins. “What this bill does is show women that, hey, these congressmen aren’t just faceless legislators; they’re real politicians whose agendas are being destroyed. Once they see the actual eyes and ears and other features of the lawmakers whose spirits they’re breaking, I believe they’ll rethink what they’re about to do.” In response to backlash from women’s rights groups, the bill’s sponsors said that if women don’t want to view the images, they are free to close their eyes or just look away.

3. How about requiring it before allowing a woman to continue a pregnancy?

 

A woman who's pregnant should have to consider that, if she carries the pregnancy to term and gives birth, the kid might grow up to be a Member of Congress.

It's her decision to not have an abortion. If she considers the possible consequences, however, she might rethink what she's about to do.






And, in a reflection of the depressingly low reading comprehension levels on DU, I advise all you jurors that this is satire.

4. I'd think it might cause spontaneous abortion from terror and/or disgust...
