Planned Parenthood Opens $8 Billion Abortionplex
February 8, 2012 by staff
Planned Parenthood Opens $8 Billion Abortionplex, Satire got the best of unsuspecting or factually impaired Republican Congressman John Fleming of Louisiana this past Friday. An ardent opponent of abortion, Fleming posted on his Facebook account a link to a May 11, 2011 story by The Onion titled “Planned Parenthood Opens $8 Billion Abortionplex.”
Fleming’s Facebook status, which has since been deleted, included the link with the note, “More on Planned Parenthood, abortion by the wholesale.”
The congressman’s followers were directed to Onion’s faux-story that begins, “Planned Parenthood announced Tuesday the grand opening of its long-planned $8 billion Abortionplex, a sprawling abortion facility that will allow the organization to terminate unborn lives with an efficiency never before thought possible.”
The gaffe was spotted by Literally Unbelievable, a blog that posts statuses from people who take Onion’s satire as fact. Without further comment, Fleming’s spokesman Doug Sachtleben told Politico that Fleming’s post was removed from his Facebook page. “The Onion is satire,” wrote one commenter on Facebook before the post was deleted. “How exactly did you get elected?”
The Abortionplex report is awfully ridiculous even by Onion’s standards. Among the greater flourishes from the story about the state-of-the-art abortion factory:
The remaining space is dedicated to amenities such as coffee shops, bars, dozens of restaurants and retail outlets, a three-story nightclub, and a 10-screen multiplex theater—features intended not only to help clients relax, but to foster a sense of community and make abortion more of a social event.
