Following in the footsteps of Michelle Wolf and the radical feminists’ agenda to somehow make abortion funny, the group “Lady Parts Justice League” will be launching a pro-abortion comedy tour.
Writing an op-ed for TeenVogue, Solange Azor says the new comedy tour from the LPJL, founded by “Daily Show” creator Lizz Winstead, will be about teaching young women to “have fun” when supporting abortion.
“Even as a comedian, I was unsure that bridging the two – especially for a seemingly emotional topic like abortion – was a recipe for success,” writes Azor before going on to say she soon became convinced it was the right call.
“Lady Parts Justice League offers a new sort of abortion politics: one which incorporates the frequently obfuscated space of joy, pleasure, and relief in discussions about abortion,” she continues. “One that pushes its members to be intentional about their activism and ideology, to find ways they can use their individual skills to support local abortion clinics and allies, and have fun while doing it.”
Of the many antics this group performs, one involves disrupting sidewalk counselors out to educate young women on the cruelty of abortion by doing obnoxious stunts like blaring Beyoncé “to overpower the chants from the stunned anti-abortion protesters and energize the enthusiastic clinic staff.” Other stunts involve just plain shouting over pro-lifers and making jokes.
“LPJL shows just how brilliant of a pairing comedy and grassroots abortion activism can be,” she says. “Since [abortion] clinics can be the site of violence, the Lady Parts Justice League also aims to bring joy in the form of barbecues, giant parking lot hot tub parties, and more.”
Azor admits the activism is about normalizing abortion as a regular practice:
To be pro-abortion is to face your own potential internalized stigma and recognize that abortion should not be exclusively about access, but about normalizing a medical procedure and life process. It does not mean you hope that every person has an abortion, but it means you advocate for the existence of abortion, not just its accessibility. It’s kind of like being pro-bypass surgery: we love its existence, we appreciate the options it offers people, we aren’t hoping our loved ones have to have one anytime soon.
By making abortion somehow funny, Azor says it will break the narrative of abortion being a painful experience for women.
“However, the danger of only amplifying this specific narrative is that it becomes the dominant one, allowing for anti-choice ideologies to exploit that emotion and present abortion as predominantly emotionally disruptive for people,” Azor writes.
