The Scarlet Letter

February 16th, 2012

Inspired by Virginia’s Proposed Ultrasound Law Is an Abomination (Slate 2/16/12 18:57).

 

Hey VA Republicans,

Wouldn’t it be best

To make every woman who wants an abortion

Wear a scarlet “A” on her chest?

 

It would be legal (nay, encouraged)

For passerby

To pelt her with eggs

Or spit in her eye.

 

The woman’s doctor

May feel duty-bound to warn her

That her exam will take placed

On a public street corner.

 

If you want to humiliate women

Why not go all the way

And bring the good old days

Back to VA?

Here’s the 1934 movie (the whole thing!), not to be confused with the Demi Moore remake. Here’s the book, or if you have a Kindle, you can download the ebook for free.
