ABORTION FUN I know abortion is not an issue to make fun about, but the Onion's What do you think? this week on Bush’s new law restricintg abortion is a cracker. My favourite comment comes from "Phillip Krantz":

As an investor in back-alley real estate and wire-hanger futures, I say, 'Whoo-hoo!'

This is one of those instances where a joke also manages to reveal a deeper point, namely that abortions are going to happen anyway. Of course you could you argue that we should strive to reduce the number of abortions in general, but by restricting the legal options isn't going to have any effect, except increase the value of "back-alley real estate and wire-hanger futures". Enough said for now.
