Obama Supporter Sarah Silverman’s Fake Abortion

Team Obama had no problems with Sarah Silverman in ‘08 and her spoof-video on why Jews should vote for Obama, but I wonder that the president has to say about this one:

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’.
