Pro-Life Until Birth

 Pro-Life Until Birth


How’s this for a late-night comedy sketch?


Scene: an obstetrics ward. A raped teen is carrying her father’s child. She bewails her condition. She has C-section without her consent. She dies but the baby is saved. Then two policemen escort in an armed adolescent. Doctors, nurses, and policeman turn aside. The lad machine-guns the infant. The policemen escort out the gunboy. They promise to get the gunboy some fast food on the way to the station.


Now that’s comedy. But I not laughing, because I’ve heard this joke before.

I tell this tale as satire, not as prophesy. Unfortunately, sometimes my snark is prophetic without my intent.
