klineby Kelli

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:

Feminist infighting escalates over mixed messaging on rape

In 2006 there was huge negative fallout at Duke University for what turned out to be false rape charges†made by a black stripper against three white LaCrosse team members. In a “tragic rush to accuse,” the men’s names were dragged through the mud, their team’s season canceled, and their coach forced to resign. The signs […]

Pro-aborts succeed in making ultrasound legislation radioactive – NOT

2012-03-06_1027-e1331059618165

Last year abortion proponents attempted to make ultrasound legislation radioactive by portraying the method used for early pregnancies, transvaginal ultrasound, as “rape.”

Vaginal probes,” as the other side menacingly tagged them, are “a very invasive procedure,” according to NBC’s David Gregory.

Stanek weekend question: What do you think of the Doonesbury “ultrasound is rape” series?

This was the week that wasn’t for the Doonesbury “ultrasound = rape” cartoon series in about 70 newspapers across the country.

Now that one must have been a hoot. But Trudeau maintains passing up the transvaginal ultrasound = rape meme “would have been […]

WashPo: Ultrasound/rape strategy a “pretty big blunder”

Advocates had used emotional, highly charged language to rally supporters against a mandatory ultrasound law that had already passed in seven other states with little backlash or fanfare….. The abortion rights movementís strategic success could, at this point, also be read as a pretty big blunder…. The abortion rights movement did have a victory in […]

by JivinJ, host of the blog, JivinJehoshaphat The amended Virginia ultrasound bill has been signed by Gov. Bob McDonnell. Unsurprisingly, the AParticle about the law has this mischaracterization:The measure initially had sought to mandate a vaginally invasive form of an ultrasound, triggering a national uproar that resounded across political talk shows and TV comedy shows….

The feminists who cried rape

  I wrote yesterday that Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell basically pulled a Bart Stupak. McDonnell blew an opportunity that comes along only rarely in public life, to be an honest-to-goodness hero. Like Stupak, McDonnell more than squandered it. He ended up hurting the pro-life cause by weakening sound, proven ultrasound legislation. But what about feminists? […]
