Pro-Life Ladies Compare Obama’s America To Totalitarian State (VIDEO)

so scary

Well, someone did their 9th grade reading (but made sure to cover their eyes and ears during all of sex ed). The Susan B. Anthony List, the self-declared “nerve center” of the pro-life movement, has decided that the Obama administration is attempting to rule our minds “1984″ steez, seeing as it wants contraception covered under the health care bill and for Planned Parenthood to have some money in the bank. The ladies at the Susan B. Anthony List have translated these decisions as meaning that Obama essentially wants to force all women to use contraception and to have an abortion if said contraception fails. And because of what some lady said about Mrs. Romney, Obama also is forcing all of female America to hire nannies or something? The SBAL ladies are calling these things “incredulous infringements on the consciences of pro-life Americans” for which Obama must be “exposed.” The Susan B. Anthony List website should also be exposed, for being very amusing.

Here’s the group’s latest video:

So … Obama wanting to give women the freedom to do something (OR NOT DO IT! UP TO THEM!) somehow constitutes their freedom being taken away? MMmmmkay.

Now, time for a heartwarming story from the “Susan B. Blog,” as it’s called, located on the Susan B. Anthony List website. It happens to be about freedom, about walking up to perfect strangers and trying to get them to believe in what you believe in for no reason, which is the dictionary definition of freedom. The post is called “Three Babies Saved!” Let’s find out how one of those babies was “saved”:

The second child was saved by the Vice President of the Providence SFL [Students for Life of America] club, Rebecca, outside of a Planned Parenthood facility. Rebecca talked with a woman contemplating abortion. After their conversation, the woman decided to go into the abortion facility. Although Rebecca felt defeated, she continued to pray for the mother. Much to Rebecca’s surprise, the mother called her that same day sharing the great news that she was keeping her baby! The change of heart occurred when Rebecca showed the woman a photo of what an aborted child looks like, the ugly truth of abortion.

Hahaha, that is lovely! Glad Rebecca’s “conversation” turned out to be effective.

      Fuck off! Fucking and wine coolers have something to do with pregnancy don't they? (Jeebus excepted, unless the "virgin" Mary kinda sorta made up a few parts of her story.)

      Anyway, have you noticed Italy (which is where the Pope wears his p-e-n-i-s hat) has legal abortion without insane people shooting doctors?

    2. flamingpdog

      Oh, fuck, Barb, I just now broke down and actually watched the video. It was scary! Hold me, Barb!!!

      OK, it was creepy, but not scary. But mebbe you can hold me anyway.

      1. Barb

        Come to Mommy, Sugar. Would you like some cookies or maybe I could make you some pancakes with little happy faces on them? How about a cold beer and you can watch the LA King hockey game with me.

    3. Fairtackle

      Damn it! what if you want an abortion but can't have one (because you are a guy). Help, I am being oppressed!

    4. Naked_Bunny

      It's cool if we gather outside their churches and harass them for taking their kids inside to be brainwashed, right?

    1. Buckminster

      Saw the Census stuff today. Them white mens are scared as hell.

      It's time to demand a few things, y'all.

  1. Lionel[redacted]Esq

    I think we all remember how the most fearsome thing in Orwell's 1984 was how the authoritarian state controlled people by letting them make their own decisions about their bodies and morals.

    1. Buckminster

      Really. My version included them squawking in Winston's ear until he had to HIDE his true feelings and beliefs. Am I missing snark?

  2. An_Outhouse

    I don't think Obama wants you to hire a nanny. You're supposed to abandon your little rats to the streets when you go off to your second or third job. The Chicago thug gangs are huge campaign donors, ya' know, and need new recruits.

  3. metamarcisf

    And that little boy, saved from limbo, was named Richard Nixon and grew up to be president of the United States.

  4. flamingpdog

    all Americans taking part in the health care exchanges will now be forced to pay a $1 “abortion surcharge.”

    Does anyone know a good stockbroker? I am SO buying stock in the Abortionplex!

    1. mayor_quimby

      That's fine and all, but can I prepay for my abortions to get a discount?
      Maybe Costco will open up a bulk clinic to compete with the Abortionplex.

  5. coolhandnuke

    The Baltimore subway system found a useful way to employ those silly Susan B. Anthony dollars by using them as subway tokens. Now if we can only find a useful way to employ/fire these Susan B. Anthony listers who want to build a subway connecting us to the 1800's.

  7. Chichikovovich

    People! Stop laughing! Remember in 1984 the Party was trying to find a way to do away with the orgasm? O'Brien said their neurological researchers were working on it.

    And what was Nancy French up to a couple of posts ago? Wake up Sheeple! It's happening!

  8. elfgoldsackring

    "Freedom is slavery" is all these wingnuts absorbed from "1984". They literally cannot cope with people having choices because they do not trust themselves — that is what I have (OK, belatedly) realized. OMG, you cannot allow abortion or gay marriage, because everyone everywhere will do it all the time, and no more babies or opposite weddings evah!

    1. ThundercatHo

      I believe what someone told me Jesus/God said so everyone must do what Jesus/God said because that's what someone told me Jesus/God said.

      1. starfanglednut

        When I was drinking, I used to hang out with a guy who kept telling me that everything the bible said was true. I would ask him how he knew that, and he would shout "IT'S IN THE BIBLE!"

        So yeah, I sobered up shortly thereafter.

        1. ThundercatHo

          My epiphany came when my friend asked me, "What if the bible is wrong?" When I found out that the Bible couldn't possibly be accurate I figured we must be on our own to decide right from wrong. I've found the distinction fairly clear most of the time.

      2. Negropolis

        Jesus told slaves to obey their masters, and for master's to be kind to their slaves.

        If we want this nation to be great and to stop living in sin, we need to reinstitute chattel slavery in America. 'Cause, you know, it's in the Bah-buhl and straight from The Jesus's mouth.

        1. ThundercatHo

          I do not understand why these women are so willing to enslave themselves and worse, to encourage others to do the same.

  9. SayItWithWookies

    Let me see if I got this right — it's enforcing conformity to let everyone do what they want, and it's the essence of freedom to make all ladies do the same thing whether they like it or not. If George Orwell only knew what 1984 was going to be used for and by whom, he'd've just given up.

    1. Dudleydidwrong

      If George Orwell only knew what 1984 was going to be used for and by whom, he'd've just given thrown up.

    2. sullivanst

      I think he'd have smitten them all upside the head with hardback copies of The Road to Wigan Pier.

    3. Buckminster

      Hey, I want to be unique, just like everyone else.

      *flips blonde hair and pops gum, rolls eyes at parental units.*

  10. Chick-Fil-Atheist™

    The second child was saved by the Vice President of the Providence SFL [Students for Life of America] club. [...] Much to Rebecca’s surprise, the mother called her that same day sharing the great news that she was keeping her baby!

    This is also known as a "post hoc ergo prayer hoc".

    1. actor212

      That's what kills me about fundies, and I say this as someone of faith:

      The woman clearly says you scared the shit out of her. It wasn't your prayers, it was the terror. I really wish you'd stop portraying my Lord as a terrorist.

      1. Chick-Fil-Atheist™

        You may want to address that with the original Hebrew and (haha) Greek, chief. Sure is a lot o'smiting in that thar book.

  11. OzoneTom

    "1984" — yeah because the right-wingers never use Orwellian deceptive names for their treason or anything like that!

  12. SorosBot

    For fuck's sake, in 1984 sex for pleasure was outlawed, it was only allowed within marriage for procreation, that's why Winston and Julia had to hide their relationship; that is exactly what these woman-haters want. For the modern Junior Anti-Sex League to try and compare freedom to 1984 is face-palmingly stupid.

    1. flamingpdog

      In all honesty, I suspect these folks have spent precisely as much time reading "1984" as they've spent actually reading the BIble.

    2. sullivanst

      Shorter, and more usefully:

      [T]he modern Junior Anti-Sex League is face-palmingly stupid.

  13. BarbdarTFlagass

    How nice of Ridley Scott to take time out from his busy schedule editing "Prometheus" to help out these ladies.

  14. dadanarchist

    Rebecca also totally has a straight boyfriend who is willing to do teh buttsexxx cuz it dunna count wait until marriage. You don't know him. He lives in Canada, but he's definitely real.

    1. elfgoldsackring

      "His name is Toronto, he lives in Prince Edward… Shit! His name is Prince Edward…"

  15. Mahousu

    If Susan B. Anthony were alive, she would sue the Susan B. Anthony List into oblivion.

  16. OneDollarJuana

    You know, these abortion foes have a point. I've given up shitting ever since I accidentally looked in the toilet before flushing.

    1. ThundercatHo

      Good point. How about C-sections? Ever see one of those? They are totally gross so we should stop having those and epidurals, too, cuz they stick a super-duper long needle right in your spine so no more of those. Really, any surgical procedure and organs/tumors that are removed look yucky and should be outlawed.

  17. edgydrifter

    …and thirty years later, the unaborted child Rebecca saved that day became a very famous abortion provider who pioneered a new technique that was used to kill eleventy-million innocent babies. The end.

  18. BarbdarTFlagass

    Now that the lady in Providence is keeping her baby, it's a good thing that she got Rebecca's phone number. Maybe Rebecca will help out with the daycare and throw some change her way when the kid needs some medicine or formula.

    1. HistoriBarb

      Rebecca will care all she can about the little tyke, right up until it's born.

  19. flamingpdog

    Can someone go back in time and abort George Orwell? I am so tired of the whole 1984 meme. I mean, I enjoyed reading "Animal Farm" much more than "1984" because of … well … ANIMALS!

    Btw, for the oldz, has anyone ever thought of writing "Freddy the Pig Does Animal Farm"?

  20. MissTaken

    The change of heart occurred when Rebecca showed the woman a photo of what an aborted child looks like, the ugly truth of abortion.

    Funny, they don't ever show pictures of what a screaming infant looks like, the ugly truth of motherhood.

    1. actor212

      Hm. You know, waving a full diaper in front of a mom on the fence about abortion, especially if she's having morning heaves, ought to do the trick!

    2. SorosBot

      Women considering carrying a pregnancy to term should have to watch video of labor, from start to finish!

      1. finallyhappy

        and the part after you deliver when the nurse says look, here is the placenta-your baby's home for the past 9 months- and then I threw up- True story.

    3. flamingpdog

      Or better yet, pictures of them right after they're dropped outta teh chute, and their skull bones are all mushed up, they're covered with slimy goo, and if you're lucky, they're not yeller!

      NOTE: That last comment was not a slam on my brothers and sisters of the East Asian persuasion.

      1. finallyhappy

        yup, both of mine were yellow -it took some time for the older one to turn a sallow white

      2. mayor_quimby

        Little known fact, the black ones come out quite pale and whitish, makes for hilarious jokes the first couple weeks.

    4. Doktor StrangeZoom

      And yet they're perfectly OK with the idea of certain other images becoming common again. It's not like the infamous photo of Gerri Santoro could possibly mean as much as those bloody photos the fetus fetishists wave. (Link is to Wikipedia; article includes a small copy of the photo; possible tri*ger warning for this image)

    5. DashBarb Buddha

      Or how about an episiotomy…with the father in the background saying, "hey doc, can you sew that up tighter?"

  21. Mumbletypeg

    These pro-life grim reapers are resembling terrorists more and more every day. I actually have suspected their nebulous connections ever since that one outspoken leader got sacked while hiding in Aborta-borta-Bad.

      1. Mumbletypeg

        What did we used to say on the wonkett as a parting thought? "I'll just be over here…"

        Not for under-stating the more sordid truth [that you just pointed out] do I stand in the corner waiting to be spanked. I had expected to catch flak for my awful pun — and it is god-awful! — but I can't watch teh youtubez link here, so I figured, "I'll try to lighten the mood a little"~

  22. DaSandman

    I'm thinking that the real Susie B would have just stomped these brain deads if they pulled that shit in front of her…

  23. MissTaken

    Much to Rebecca’s surprise, the mother called her that same day sharing the great news that she was keeping her baby!

    Can I get Rebecca's phone number, too? She seems swell.

  24. prommie

    Well, that should dehumanize the enemy enough so that the good folk won't feel any pangs of guilt about resorting to the 2nd amendment methods, huh? After all, liberals are all treasonous traitor commies. Worse than hoodie-wearing thugs, even.

  25. elfgoldsackring

    Joke's on you, Rebecca — that baby is totes mulatto! See what you've done?

  26. el_donaldo

    It never fails to piss me off that these creeps keep enlisting dead people who can clearly no longer speak for themselves like Frederick Douglass or Susan B Anthony into causes they would never have supported in their lifetime.

    If I have my way, some day some zombie hero Americans are going to raise some hell.

  27. gullywompr

    Since we're time-travelling, maybe this time we can get Bush to read the fucking memo.

  28. sullivanst

    I'm not convinced that all those 247 people are whole. I'm pretty sure most are missing at least half a brain, for example.

  29. JustPixelz

    "Three Babies Saved!”

    Other ways to save the babies — born and unborn — without using grotesque photographs:
    - fewer guns
    - safe, inspected food
    - prenatal care
    - car seats/seatbelts
    - affordable day care

    1. DashBarb Buddha

      Very noble…but you're assuming these people give a fuck about "babies" after they're born.

  30. DonnyKerabotsos

    Priceless–

    The catchphrase on the end of the ad reads:

    Tell President Obama:

    Respect a woman's choice to practice 'her' beliefs…not 'his.'

    Don't they realize that Obama's "belief" is EXACTLY that women should make the choice for themselves, based on their beliefs, without interference from their pastor, congressman, pharmacist, employer, nosy neighbor, abortion clinic zombie, etc, etc?

    Thy are double-plus clueless and have no sense of irony whatsoever. I wonder if they even fully comprehend the idea that words have actual meanings. They do seem to be well funded though.

    I find this very difficult to snark to…

    1. sullivanst

      I have been saying for years that words have no meaning to Republicans, they view them solely as tools for winning elections.

  31. didgen

    Looking back 34 years…. yes I totally felt pregnancy was a punishment. Especially those last 2 weeks past my due date.

  32. Generation[redacted]

    Kudos to these ladies for carrying on Susan B Anthony's legacy. Because if there's one thing she was known for, it's showing pictures of aborted fetuses.

  33. OneYieldRegular

    I tried to explain the SBA List ad to one of Obama's infringements, but the infringement was incredulous, refusing to believe that people attempting to make a persuasive public argument did not bother to avail themselves of a dictionary.

    1. Biel_ze_Bubba

      Yeah, but those teabagger infringements are so credulous, they'll believe anything they're told. I'm guessing the ad will run on Faux, for added credulity.

  34. mavenmaven

    Contraception is not the same as a Concentration Camp, its warped that these folks even think that way.

      1. Naked_Bunny

        Of course. Big Contraception wants you to take even more birth control pills, so they need to make you have more sex. That's how birth control works, right, Rush?

  35. not that Radio

    Nancy French should get CBS NEWS 2 to walk through the Abortionplex and simply flip over all those pregnant ladies.

  36. whiterabid

    Is this a James O'Keefe video? I kept waiting for the pimps and ho's and the jump cuts.

  37. CommieLibunatic

    It's at time like these when I wish Obama was even half the dictator he's been made out to be. Then these idiots would be silenced, bankers would be hung in cages off the rocky cliffs, and we might just get something good done for a change.

      1. CommieLibunatic

        Yeah, and on hippie elitist organic alternative fuels, no doubt. I mean, Mussolini made the trains run on thyme!

      2. Negropolis

        One of the things not being given a lot of press is that the Obama administration has almost single-handedly initiated vast improvements to and modernizations of the three Amtrak services here in Michigan. It's been a thing of beauty, and it's been happening under the radar.

  38. Antispandex

    If there are no more abortions, what will liberals eat? We have to have our baby sacrifices, it's religious stuff. And that's in the Constitution.

  39. Doktor StrangeZoom

    "The Party's neurologists are working to extinguish the orgasm" –O'Brien to Winston Smith. Have these ladies even read the goddamned book?

    Who am I kidding…none of these fuckers has read the goddamned book.

    ATTENTION WINGNUTS! GEORGE ORWELL DOES NOT AGREE WITH YOU!

    1. Antispandex

      Nor does Huxley, as it happens, agree with the party of insanity based politics. Odd.

    2. Naked_Bunny

      Have these ladies even read the goddamned book?

      I assume this is a rhetorical question, because it involves reading anything.

  40. Exhausted66

    Why did Obama have to overturn the law against abortion that GWB passed when the GOP controlled the House and the Senate?

  41. starfanglednut

    “incredulous infringements on the consciences of pro-life Americans” for which Obama must be “exposed.”

    Obama can expose himself to me anytime.

  42. Naked_Bunny

    I assume Rebecca handed out her home address so everyone knows where to find a free baby sitter.

  43. Naked_Bunny

    The change of heart occurred when Rebecca showed the woman a photo of what an aborted child looks like, the ugly truth of abortion.

    Now show her what giving birth looks like, especially the part where you sometimes poop on the delivery table. So beautiful!

    1. Doktor StrangeZoom

      Or maybe the part where your feet are cold and you borrow your husband's socks and bleed all over 'em, and he doesn't mind at all because even all these years after the divorce, he still thinks the kid, now nearly 15, is pretty swell, but god DAMN those bloody socks were vivid.

  44. MaxUdargo

    So now we're going to let women with British accents tell us to disrespect the president? In a time of WAR? Who are these fucking traitors?

  45. Equality_Joe

    The thing I've never understood is, if the crux of your whole anti-abortion argument is, "medical waste is icky", then why stop there? I mean, hepatic tumors aren't exactly pretty either. Why not just go whole hog and outlaw all surgery, on account of grossness?

  46. Boojum

    Incredulous does not mean unbelievable. It means unbelieving, i.e., not credulous.

    Me, I'm incredulous that anyone could be so fucking stupid.

    1. Doktor StrangeZoom

      Thank you. There should be a whole book that's comprised of these kinds of mistakes, some sort of penultimate guide to commonly confused words. It would be pluperfect for any occasion!

  47. PubOption

    Perhaps Wonkette should set up the Alexander Stephens Institute, to promote racial equality.

  48. fuflans

    i'm attempting to listen to teri gross interview jeremy skahill on drone strikes in yemen while reading this and i am having serious cognitive dissidence.

  49. Negropolis

    This 1984 bullshit has been done. to. death. Stop it.

    “incredulous infringements on the consciences of pro-life Americans”

    They do realize that they are trying to invigorate anti-abortion America (i.e. "Real (fake) America), right? They need to dumb down that vocabulary.

    1. George Spelvin

      Since they're pretty thoroughly abusing the vocabulary, I surmise that the intent is to convey the concept "See, we smart too!", in which case the comprehension of individual words is of negligible importance.

  50. jzgplj

    I guess I'd like to see where the forcing them to use contraceptives and have abortions is actually written into the health care law. These people are complete fucking morons, and I can only hope they get hit by a bus.

  51. elburritodeluxe

    Even though I supported Obama, I find his forced abortions policy a little over the top.

  52. elburritodeluxe

    Who is this black dictator!? What has happened to this nation's beloved white dictators?

  53. Halloween Jack

    *yawn* Another news cycle, another ripoff of the Apple ad. How'd that work out for Frothy Discharge the last time someone tried it?
