Did you know that today is the National Day of Appreciation for Abortion Providers? No? I don’t know how you could have missed it, what with the Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice spreading the holiday spirit through a cheery, chirpy video:

As a great woman once said, isn’t that extra special! I especially like the woman with the little boy and girl, the latter of whom is holding up a sign that says “thank you” (for not aborting me, presumably). It must be wonderful for mothers such as her to know that if she had taken a mind to extinguish the lives of those two kids before they started, there would have been courageous abortionists standing by to carry out her wishes, all the while defying the evil minions of those awful religious right fanatics who would stand in the way of those children being body-bagged. They’re American heroes, I tells ya.
