From The Onion:
Planned Parenthood Opens $8 Billion Abortionplex
TOPEKA, KS—Planned Parenthood announced Tuesday the grand opening of its long-planned $8 billion Abortionplex, a sprawling abortion facility that will allow the organization to terminate unborn lives with an efficiency never before thought possible.
During a press conference, Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards told reporters that the new state-of-the-art fetus-killing facility located in the nation’s heartland offers quick, easy, in-and-out abortions to all women, and represents a bold reinvention of the group’s long-standing mission and values.
This article was the target of Facebook outrage from concerned readers who did not realize it was a satirical article, and there’s a website devoted to mocking these people called “Literally Unbelievable”.
While one should be called out for taking an Onion article seriously, the trouble with this particular Onion article is that it starts out not all that unbelievable (although that quickly changes). Well, since PP is in the news quite a lot these days, I thought I’d post some of Salvo‘s own attempts at satire.
