While “Abortion Barbie” will not be hitting toy store shelves anytime soon (phew), it is a title being given to attractive, blonde politicians who aren’t trying to vote ‘yes’ on adopting anti-abortion laws that belong in the middle ages.
The term was first thought up by editor of a conservative blog (and apparent comedic genius) Erick Erickson to try and essentially ruin the life of a Pro-choice former Texas State Senator who was also a total MILF. A random conservative woman from the Midwest even PAID to have creepy AF, life-sized “Abortion Barbie” posters made and hung up all over Hollywood. Do less.
Another “Abortion Barbie” was added to the mix after she decided against supporting the Republican Party’s most recent attempt to toughen anti-abortion laws. Of course, Erickson didn’t hesitate to repeat his joke (because it was SO good the first time). Seeing as “Abortion Barbie” could have been made up by a tween, it makes sense to have been broadcasted in an equally passive aggressive manner – via twitter.
Basically, the Republicans were butthurt because their little anti-abortion bill didn’t work. Even Sarah Palin managed to get out an intelligible sentence on the matter saying “it’s not just the New England Patriots who are dealing with deflated balls right now”. Wherever your political views may lie, we can all agree that we do not like to be told what we can and can’t do. Especially by a bunch of sweaty middle aged men, and even more so when it has to do with our vaginas.
