This is a story of me and two TV ad spots. First, I viewed the American Life League's newest video that, according to some on Twitter, "will make pro-aborts see red." Honestly, it makes me puzzled more than anything else. I think ALL and their GOP supporters are in desperate need of sex-ed and a lesson in exactly what Title X, the family planning program they're crowing about, does. I wondered what cute little bunnies had to do with abortion and pregnancy until a colleague reminded me of the fail-safe pregnancy test methods way back in the day. Is ALL trying to bring back the "rabbit test", I wondered? In the earlier part of the 20th century, it was discovered that injecting a rabbit (or other small rodents) with the urine of a pregnant woman would prove fatal for the animal. It was ultimately discovered that it was not, in fact, an effective (or, of course, humane) method of pregnancy testing. Still, I'm thinking ALL may have an alterior motive here.
