Comedian Andy Kline (pictured right) gained some attention from NARAL this week on Twitter for his 2012 joke about transvaginal ultrasound laws.

The female author of this Upworthy article, which includes Kline’s comedy routine transcript, says Kline “makes an excellent point,” but I can’t seem to find it:

Look, I don’t know what kind of used car salesmen are working at the abortion clinics. How does it even go? You show up and go, “Yeah, I’m here for an abortion.”

“Can I interest you in a baby?”

No, literally, the opposite of that situation?

“Look, here’s a picture of a fetus with a party hat on!”

“What’s that behind your ear? Someone who will take care of you when you’re old?”

If they’re gonna do that, shouldn’t they also be required to show you pictures how your life will be affected if you choose to have the child?

Like, “Look, here’s all your friends having fun without you!”

“Look at this one,”

“That one’s blank.”

“That’s how much money you’ll have!”


Hilarious, right? But maybe Andy isn’t aware that many women who have had abortions have stated that abortion clinics already do a bang-up job of preying on women’s vulnerability and fears about finances and the future they think they will lose if they give birth to their children.
