Sarah Silverman's Sick Abortion Tweet

Here we have an example of what passes as Liberal comedy. Sarah Silverman might be like a female version of Bill Maher. Both push the limits of what is viewed as comedy. Here is a pretty sick attempt by Silverman to make a point about abortion with on of her tweets. From the Daily Mail:

Comedienne Sarah Silverman joined America's current War on Women yesterday after she tweeted a hoax before-and-after abortion photo.

Reigniting the women's rights movement via Twitter, the 41-year-old wrote: 'Got a quickie aborsh in case R v W gets overturned.'

The controversial comment captioned two photos of Miss Silverman made to look like she was pregnant before getting an abortion - and quickly divided opinion.

While she caused a wave of support from hundreds of people voicing liberal pro-choice beliefs, she also drew criticism for her 'insensitivity' for a subject that is 'no laughing matter'.

The first image shows Silverman extremely bloated after having eaten a burrito, and the second shows her wearing the same outfit with a wash-board flat stomach after the bloating had subsided.

At the expense of the Republican party who want to take away women’s autonomy over their bodies, the comedienne paired potty humour with political commentary, using the montage to make a strong and simple point about the ongoing War on Women...
Abortion can rightly be compared to slavery and the Holocaust. Given the vain of Silverman's thinking, then it would be like someone joking about killing another Jewish child before the Nazis were defeated. Or beating slaves one last time before they were freed.
