Ashley Judd Gives Rick Santorum an 'Abortion' Scolding He'll Never Forget (VIDEO)

LOL 100

ashley juddAshley Judd is becoming my favorite feminist -- not to mention my favorite Judd. Last week she lashed out at the media for picking at her appearance. This week she took on Rick Santorum and pretty much the whole extreme pro-life universe in a Funny or Die video. She and her sisters in comedy have a special message just for Rick: He has to wait 72 hours before terminating his candidacy.

Take Rick Santorum's announcement that he's suspending terminating his presidential campaign and plunk it into an abortion clinic and -- oooh, a dozen or so hilarious/squirmy parallels hatch like so many fuzzy, provocative little chicks.

Okay, depending on where you are on the whole pro-choice/pro-life debate, this is either the funniest thing ever or the kind of video that confirms your suspicion that we are all just one more wicked joke away from The End of Days.

I think it's only fair to invite Rick Santorum to share some of the shame he wants to inflict on, well, pretty much every woman out there who wants full control over our reproductive lives. 

More from The Stir: Rick Santorum's Beliefs About Women Should Terrify You

Some of my favorite moments: Scary doom-and-gloom music, candidacy ultrasound, "the law requires me to tell you that as early as six weeks a candidacy can have living, breathing supporters," and that amazing pamphlet Ashley's holding there. It kind of flashes by quickly but it reads, "Planned Politics Guide to Never Running for President Again." ELL OH ELL -- I love it.

The ladies all play it straight for laughs except for one moment when Ashley looks sincerely pissed: "I mean, you're a grown man running for president! And I'm just a woman who's never worked in politics and couldn't possibly understand what you're going through." Yeah, I wonder how she feels about male politicians inserting themselves into the whole birth control/choice debate?

Do you think the abortion clinic/presidential campaign comparison is funny or inappropriate?

I think Ashley Judd needs to stop trying to speak for the female race as a whole.

Rick Santorum suspended his presidential campaign because of his daughter's rare genetic disorder - how that can be compared to the murder of pre-born children is beyond me. It's a sad state that our world has come to when women are fighting as hard as they are for the "right" to kill children.

That was hilarious! Very clever. And torrencemom, Santorum suspended his campaign because there was no way on God's earth that he could win the nomination. His daughter's illness just gave him a dignified way out.

I love this video and the one with the Child Celebrities Oppossed to Kirk Cameron.  Ashley Judd is quickly becoming my favourite feminist too.


It's a sad state that our world has come to when women are fighting harder for the rights of zygotes than they are for children who are already born.

"It's a sad state that our world has come to when women are fighting harder for the rights of zygotes than they are for children who are already born"


It's even a sadder state that our world has come to when women use the word "zygotes" to replace "baby".  Zygote, embryo, fetus = BABY in a woman's womb.  Depersonalizing it doesn't change it.
