Abortion advocates are discussing the release of Family Guy’s banned abortion episode and lamenting the lack of pro-abortion storylines on television. It’s true that many TV and film characters choose life in crisis pregnancy situations, which is great. But we can always do better.
I’m reminded of an RH Reality Check article from almost a year ago, in which the author expressed her dissatisfaction with the lack of pro-abortion jokes. There aren’t many pro-life jokes out there either, though. It’s easy to understand why. Abortion is no laughing matter, and we don’t want to be insensitive to the massive tragedy of over a million babies dying every year.
That said, sometimes humor is the best way to spread a message and make it stick. People are much more likely to share a story, article, or video when it’s funny. SecularProLife.org is currently working on a viral video that will have an element of comedy. In the meantime, do you have any pro-life jokes to tell?
