This Spam’s An Abortion

I never thought I’d say this, but spam can be enlightening.

I’m referring to a recent spam flurry promoting home abortion kits. And we have Republicans to thank for this disturbing trend. After all, newly empowered Republicans have been targeting abortion rights in a big way. And at the state level they’ve been very successful at severely limiting women’s reproductive rights.

Who knew that when Republicans claimed to be pro-small business, they were talking about abortion kit scam artists?

That brings me to my latest limerick:

This Spam’s An Abortion

A new (to me) flavor of scam
Came by email for gals in a jam.
Yes, a legal cascade
Against Roe versus Wade
Has inspired abortion kit spam.

    What an awful pit
    As Brian said that is just danger in the making

    Although it gives me fits
    Nothing’s new in abortion kits
    When girls in a jam
    Can’t go on the lam
    They use hangers or needles for knits.

    I know, morbid, but we’ll be seeing it again if the anti-choice zealots have their way and the high school health clinics and Planned Parenthoods all close.
