To Mark Roe v. Wade Anniversary, Winger Lady Says Decorate With Abortion Porn

  operation rescue your outdated common room!


Hey, COOL! Some crazy wingnut lady is sharing her abortion porn-based decorating tips with America’s college kids! Rep. Vicky Hartzler of Missouri recommends covering the dorm bulletin board with high-quality prints of aborted fetuses (which, in the video sounds more like “aborted feces”, no?). If graphic late-term abortion footage won’t exactly fly with your feminazi RA, Vic suggests at least stacking some fun brochures about how babies grow on a table, and maybe also randomly littering your dorm with pamphlets on non-optional pregnancy. What a hip and respectful way to share your views with the people forced to live near you! [Think Progress]

    Abortions for everyone! Get on the bus!
    15 days until they yank out my uterus. I hope I can squeeze in an abortion before then.

      1. Barb

        We have secret abortions every time you guys turn your back. Heck, I'm calling my next bash "The Pro Choice Bowl" and there will be buffalo wings, nachos, pizza, and kegs of beer.

          1. Barb

            Sorry, I was just updating my Facebook status to "having an abortion" and "un friending" little Jeffery Alan XVIII.

          2. MissTaken

            Glad I can entertain! The sad part is I actually have work to do now, but I can't stop. This thread is hilarious!

        1. flamingpdog

          And here I thought the only thing I was missing by not being a woman was having boobs to fondle any time I felt like it.

          1. SorosBot

            Now you also miss the joy of having a political movement that wants control over your body, as well as making 75 cents for every dollar made by a man.

          2. Katydid

            Just because I can, I'll have you know every woman fondles her own boobs every day, when she's not having an abortion. Sometimes even then.

    1. Chichikovovich

      Well, first – good luck and best wishes for your surgery. (This is the first I've heard of it – sorry if it's old news in these parts.) I'll be thinking of you in 15 days.

      Second – I hope you at least froze a lot of eggs back in the day, so you can have a few of them fertilized and thrown away every Roe v. Wade day.

      1. Barb

        Yeah, I am 6 tumors that have to go. I have the uterus of a woman who is 6 months pregnant. I had the pre surgery physical today. Feb 8th, 7:30 AM will be the end of my having abortions, just for shits and giggles.

        1. Chichikovovich

          That's just the time I'm driving my children to school. I will make sure I keep you in my thoughts.

          1. ThundercatHo

            Liveblogging one's hysterectomy sounds like more fun than a GOP debate cuz at least you should get some good controlled substances. Make sure you talk to your anesthesiologist about post-op pain control (get lots of the good stuff). Seriously though, good luck and we'll all be sending positive healing vibes your way.

          1. MittBorg

            Darling, you can't *do* that, not right before surgery. You have to eat right, which means LOTS more fresh fruit, fresh veggies, and protein rich meals. Don't make me come down there with my gimpy leg and everything to beat your ass, girl! That is so inconsiderate.

          2. MittBorg

            All right, then. I'll just go back to sitting on my aching ass and griping about my knee. So what happened yesterday, just too busy? Remember to get plenty of rest too, you'll need to be rested. Also pls 2 drink lots of water and stay hydrated. It's like training for the marathon. Who's coming to stay and help you recuperate by spoiling you rotten?

          3. Barb

            I live in the desert, in high altitude. I always drink water. Wanna see what I just finished. It's gonna gross you out, for sure. http://tinypic.com/r/x1c4nd/5
            Ainsley needed a Valentine's Day dress and I couldn't wait to finish it. It is very teeny tiny, like Ainsley. Getting the little crystal hearts (inside the circles on the skirt) on it was the hardest part.

          4. MittBorg

            OMG it is fucking gorgeous! It is beautiful! Wow, I'm so impressed, Barb. You are a woman of many talents. I wish I could make something like that. I'm working on a piece of fabric art, but I kind of lost inspiration when my leg went south. That kind of fine work is the worst, it requires monumental patience, and I haven't any. You can always show me pitchers of cool stuff like this if you want.

          5. Barb

            I want to make amazing quilts like the Amish women do. I have to get you in my email loop so I can gross you out with all the crafty crap I do.

          6. MittBorg

            It's a date. Sock it to me baby: the political cat (all one word) at gee mail dot youknowwhat. I wish I could do that stuff. It really is absolutely beautiful and I would like more pitchers.

          7. 102415

            Very very cute! Have fun in surgery and remember to always say " The pain is 10!! 10!!! I tell you." And get up and walk right in the hospital as much as you can as soon as possible.

  2. MissTaken

    If everyone stopped getting abortions then where would they find pictures of aborted fetuses to decorate with?

    1. Fare la Volpe

      Red jello kinda looks like a fetus, and it's not like the wingnuts are smart enough to know the diff.

      1. emmelemm

        Ahhh, that reminds me of one Halloween in the early 2000s, at a point where there had recently been several "have baby in bathroom while at your senior prom" news items, a friend of mine went in costume of a prom dress (complete with tiara), a red string tied somewhere under the skirt, which was attached to a plastic bag which was then secured with a loop around her wrist (for carrying purposes). The plastic bag was full of… something… plus a lot of red jello. That was awesome.

      2. Crank_Tango

        Shit, where I live, we add aborted fetuses to our red jello like so much fruit cocktail.
        Because until you can run a prius on them, you gotta do something with the little fuckers, amirite?

        And yes, I am in San Francisco.

  3. DustBowlBlues

    It's morans like this who make me proud to stand up and declare: "I had an abortion when I was over 40, bitch."

    What about the debate tonight? Liveblog or am I forced to do something productive while I wait for Current and MSNBC to tell me these people are full of shit? Or watch the debate while I dust?

    I hate all this uncertainty about my evening schedule.

      1. PsycWench

        I could have had an abortion when I found out my son would have Down syndrome. I didn't.
        People always assume I'm pro-life because of this. I tell them I'm glad to have had the choice and I'm still pro-choice.

        1. MittBorg

          You're an admirable woman. Not for having a baby with Down, clearly even a Sarah Palin can do *that.* But for knowingly undertaking the difficult task of parenting a child who needs so much more than others; and for not permitting your choice to cloud your judgment about others' rights.

        2. Fare la Volpe

          And because you made that informed choice of your own volition, we know that your son will always be well loved and well taken care of. Good on you.

      2. MittBorg

        And here I've been envisioning you as a late-twentiesish vision of loveliness. It had never occurred to me that you could be over 30. Dang, gurl. You don't look a day over 26!

    1. Fare la Volpe

      I've never had an abortion, but the more you girls talk about 'em I feel I have to get in on this trend before it becomes as passe as ugg boots. Just need to get a uterus first and I'm gold!

  4. Beetagger

    Hello Rep. Hartzler: I am an unemployed photographer and would like to apply for the position of abortion photographer that you recently posted. Do I get paid per fetus?

    1. MittBorg

      I don't see why. A little glitter, a little creativity, and Voila! Instant Blingee!

      This could provide some exciting artistic opportunities. Also, too.

  5. Barb

    Rick Santorum said that rape victims should "make the best out of a bad situation." When life gives you lemons, shut up and eat your lemons.

    1. KathrynSane

      When life gives you lemons, squeeze out the juice and throw it in Rick Santorum's beady little eyes. What a douchebag.

    2. Chichikovovich

      Every time I think I hate Gingrich even more than Santorum, Santorum digs deep into his repertoire of ooze for something that will pull him back into the lead.

    3. MittBorg

      I think he means, "When life gives you lemons, stick them up your lacerated cunts, ladies, and shut the fuck up, the men are taking care of Important Business."

      I do not want to live in a world where this asshole gets to make decisions about *any*one's rights.

      1. Fare la Volpe

        Santorum looks like the kind of guy who would still be a virgin despite fathering 5 kids. I don't know how it's possible, but I know he'd find a way.

    4. BerkeleyBear

      When life gives you lemons, make a series of incisions on your arms, squeeze the juice over them, then place the remaining pulp on the wound. Make sure you rub some shit in there too, just for the potential for infection.

  6. DustBowlBlues

    A John Deere ad. Excellent! We have a real one–the mid-range sedan style we got used for 11K and the Old Man just bought a kiddie model for our granddaughter. Who knew wonkette would be used to advertise to the Heartland? Does this mean Ken has sold out to the wheat lobby?

    1. flamingpdog

      Damn, I was going to comment on that! I think it the "Green" in the advertisement that brought them to us. But then I don't have much use for tractors unless they're pulling giant loads in an arena with thousands of screaming "real Americans" in the stands.

      1. MittBorg

        Y U get to see things *I* don't? All I ever see is computer ads and book ads. Wut gives? Oh, sometimes I get hot-looking boys, total twinks with hard bodies and tousled hair, advertising denim clothing. Wuh?

  7. SorosBot

    Yeah, that should work – considering that the vast majority of aborted fetuses look like a microscopic blob, people will see that it's nothing like a human and abortion is perfectly OK.

        1. MissTaken

          That sounds all science-y and evil. If Jeebus wanted us to see a fetus he would've put them out the outside and painted them plaid.

          1. SorosBot

            How dare those scientists claim that a fetus develops gradually, developing organs over a series of months, instead of being a humunculus that starts as a fully formed human body within a man's sperm that just grows. Why those same evil scientists tell us that a woman has equal hereditary contributions to the fetus, when theology tells us it's all the man!

        2. Redhead

          Oh I'm sure they will use pictures of the slides in the brochures – but just conveniently forget to say that they're from the microscope slides, and instead insist that that's what it really looks like (along with the heartbeat they claim it's had since two weeks before conception).

        1. CapnFatback

          I feel as if I've just been slapped on the back and subsequently kneed in the sack.

          And then, of course, aborted.

  8. Redhead

    These are the people who thought sticking a dildo-ish ultrasound wand up a woman's hooha in front of the entire governing body and on television was a great way to protest women being allowed to "get away" with sexual promiscuity.

    I'm sure, in their minds, it made sense. So did Cain as a serious candidate. And Palin. And Perry. And Bachmann. And Trump.

    1. SorosBot

      And the ultrasound found absolutely nothing, because it was too early in the pregnancy, undermining their whole plan; that was great.

      1. MissTaken

        Too early? What are you talking about? I have a little personal ultrasound machine set up on my nightstand. He cums, he sees baby. Win!

  9. MissTaken

    Thanks for the decorating tips! One question, would a floral motif clash with the aborted fetus pictures? Because I currently have flowers on my duvet set and would hate to create a decorating faux pas.

    1. Steverino247

      And what about feng shui issues? Where one puts the aborted must be considered.

      And happy Lunar New Year! I wish I was in SF for that. Earliest childhood memories are of those celebrations, complete with firecrackers and dancing dudes inside a paper dragon.

      1. MissTaken

        Gong Hai Fat Choy!

        I had some dumplings today for prosperity. I had to explain to a coworker that babies born this year are extra special because they are dragons, the only mythological animal in Chinese astrology. Silly part, she's fully Chinese-American and I'm whiter than a loaf of Wonder Bread.

        1. Steverino247

          My favorite Chinese place is closed on Mondays, but we're hitting it tomorrow! Yum yum, get some…

  10. CapnFatback

    Okay, but how I can tell which are the pictures of aborted fetuses, and which is the Vicky Hartzler campaign literature?

  11. BarackMyWorld

    I just remembered the finale for "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" was filmed in Missouri…funny they didn't call her for decorating ideas.

  12. Lionel[redacted]Esq

    Because nearly 40 years of allowing women to make decisions about their own bodies on their own should not be tolerated!

  13. chascates

    I'll stick to my Dorothea Lange and Walker Evans photos of poor people, thank you. Still relevant after almost 80 years.

  14. flamingpdog

    "Most American learn through pictures"

    Maybe in Missouruh, lady, but most people outside the Bibull Belt learned to read in school, even a lot of the food-stamp blahs!

  15. Steverino247

    Zealots for Zygotes strikes again. Anything under about 24 weeks won't even make a good soup.

  16. Naked_Bunny

    You notice they always want to use pictures of aborted fetuses, and not pictures of fetuses as they're delivered?

    I imagine a video of a sobbing woman, drugged out of her mind, screaming and vomiting as a wrinkled, slimy baby is forced through her vagina, just as the words "Choose Life" fade in.

        1. MittBorg

          Sweet Jesus. I can understand wanting one's husband along, since he's the guilty party, but I've been invited to at least three … ah, baby-havings, all of which I refused with thanks. I presume you only have the one child?

          I'm beginning to feel very self-congratulatory about my decision not to attend births.

          1. ShaveTheWhales

            Oh but you've missed the best part from the guy's POV, when your wife attempts to rip your arm out of the socket so she can strangle you with it.

          2. MittBorg

            I presume the voice of experience that speaketh here refers to your very own lady wife?

            Didn't you feel … you know, squeamish about all the blood and bodily fluids?

          3. MosesInvests

            No snark here, MB-
            When you're watching your own kid be born, the bodily fluids just don't matter. You're aware of them, but that awareness is just overwhelmed by seeing new life come into the world. BTW, when my son was born, his mother actually shat on the bed during one contraction. Nurses just replaced the sheet and we kept going.
            Thank you-we now return to your regularly-scheduled snark.

          4. finallyhappy

            I bit my husband's arm, cursed and vomited- and after that baby, I had a second one 2 years later. Of course, I had no choice except to be there- that's the problem with being the one who gives birth

    1. ThundercatHo

      As a former OB nurse I've often thought that having young girls attend a birth would be the very best way to deal with the teen pregnancy problem.

  17. BarackMyWorld

    I just saw the clip of Santorum today getting the question about Obama being a Muslim and illegally president. AWKWARD~!

  18. CapnFatback

    An anti-abortion Winger lady? Well, bless my hair metal! Did she warm up the crowd with "She's Only Seventeen. . . Weeks"?

  19. Guppy

    Being "pro-life," I'm sure she also recommends posting graphic pictures of war dead and executed inmates to protest those actions as well.

    Right?

    1. Bluestatelibel

      I recommend tacking up photos of all the American soldiers and Iraq civilians killed during Bush's war … think twice America, before voting Republican again.

  20. Callyson

    I'd love to know the reaction of Bad Kitty, who is running for president according to the ad on the right hand side, to this idea…
    Come on, Kitty, scratch her eyes out! Good kitty…

  21. DahBoner

    You're supposed to just lie back and think of that dude in Tennessee, Biggun who will say anything to embarass Romney…

  22. poorgradstudent

    Abortion porn, eh? I'll have to tell the next pro-lifer I run into that opposing legalized abortion is against my self-interest, because I have a very specific sexual dysfunction where I'm only sexually aroused by images of abortion being performed.
