"Planned Parenthood is supported by the state and federal government, but what kind of heinous activities are your tax dollars funding?"
This is a now-familiar refrain that's echoed throughout the ongoing (and, frankly, ridiculous) debate about the merits of Planned Parenthood—especially in the last few weeks in the aftermath of the undercover operation that attempted to "out" the organization as unethical. But it's also the opening line of Funny or Die's totally spot-on spoof of the "scandal." You get to decide which tone you prefer.
Us? We'll take the sarcastic, please!
The clip uses real women as actors pretending to be patients of Planned Parenthood, bravely telling their stories of all the horrifying normal screenings and procedures they've received at clinics. Some of them have even been subjected to (gasp!) advice on prenatal care or contraceptives. It's truly shocking what they've been through, but somehow they've lived to tell their stories.
