March 10th is one of the least celebrated “holidays” in America. It’s National Abortion Provider Appreciation Day. Only a few people will be celebrating. One of them is the Nation’s Katha Politt. The New York Times fulfilled their duty a few days early by printing this puff piece on the graying of abortion providers whose sole source seems to be the claims of abortion providers. Another is former abortionist Suzanne Poppema who has a RH Reality Check piece entitled, “Save the Endangered Abortion Provider!”
We’re still waiting for Hallmark to make us a special line of greeting cards, but the very existence of a day honoring abortion providers is a step in the right direction.
You’ll be waiting for a long time. Imagine a card section for abortionists in the card shop next to Husband, Wife, Mother and Father. What would a form thank you card for an abortionist say?
“To the person who made me wait in a crowded room all day, charged me $400 and then saw me for a minute or so before vaccuuming out my uterus, you’re the best physician I’ve ever met (well, I guess we really didn’t meet, did we?).”
