Funny or Die has done it again. This time, the comedic geniuses are sending up Planned Parenthood, revealing what really goes down behind closed doors– and you need to watch this shockingly hilarious video!
Planned Parenthood, the lifesaving resource center for reproductive healthcare, has been in the news (more than usual) lately, due to an undercover (and highly edited) video created by an anti-abortion activist. In said video, a PP employee is asked about some of its operations regarding fetal tissue and she is, naturally, nonchalant when discussing their services. The video has garnered considerable attention online, however, Funny or Die is here to set the record straight on what those privately funded a-holes at PP really do when a scared young person walks through their doors. Brace yourselves– there are medical gowns.
“I was pregnant when I first went to Planned Parenthood,” a woman starkly explains, bathed in a creepy black and white filter. “They lead me down a narrow hallway, into a little room filled with medical instruments and…they gave me great advice for prenatal care,” she adds, struggling to get the words out.
“I couldn’t believe when someone asked me to wear a gown,” another woman says, scoffing at the audacity of the healthcare professionals to accommodate their patients. “It was open in the back. My butt was out,” she adds, doing justice to the trauma.
“Planned Parenthood overwhelmed me with the ability to make my own choices!” says another woman, nearly in tears. “Me, a woman. Without having to ask my congressman.” Honestly, we stand with these women and share with them in their disbelief. Can you imagine receiving reproductive advice and care without asking a congressman? Not in my America!
What do you think of the video? A hilarious and poignant response to the attacks on PP, or does it make light of an issue that shouldn’t be mocked?
