Center for Reproductive Rights (YouTube)

The creepiest video ever?

Roe v. Wade

One line has stuck in my mind from the U.S.A. trilogy that John dos Passos published in the 1930s: “All right we are two nations.” That was the writer’s response to the executions of the anarchists Sacco and Vanzetti in 1927.

When I watched the video below my jaw dropped. I thought at first it was a clever production from a pro-life group: note the lighting, the leering chuckles, the overall creepiness. Maybe the actor is hoping to replace Max McLean in the stage production of The Screwtape Letters. But no: The video is from the Center for Reproductive Rights, a major pro-abort group supported by a coven of A- and B-list actors like Meryl Streep and Kevin Bacon.

One YouTube commenter on the video’s page wrote that it is “almost exactly as I would have scripted it to make fun of the evil of Roe v Wade. Well played, tone deaf pro-aborts.” That’s true: Abortion has been a gift not to women but to Playboy Philosophy men—and it’s been particularly murderous, percentage-wise, in the African-American community. But the dos Passos line appeals to me because Center for Reproductive Rights folks aren’t dumb, so that video must appeal to some people.

From which nation do such folks come, slouching toward the abortion dens? Women were rightly offended by apparently clueless Todd Akin’s talk about “legitimate rape.” How about this portrait of a seducer who loves the abortion regime that enables exploitation? Will the mainstream media jump on this? Or—are we two nations?
