Mother Jones kicked off the 40th anniversary of the Supreme Court’s Roe v. Wade decision with a poorly considered “happy birthday” wish, so why not a “happy anniversary” as well, complete with a rose and some slow jams in the background? “True Blood’s” Mehcad Brooks stars in a “sexy” spot put together by the Center for Reproductive Rights, but the humor of the ad is lost on quite a few who don’t consider 40 years of abortion a laughing matter.
Hey, baby? Really? Sorry, Mehcad, baby can’t hear you.
Who toasts to dead babies? That’s not a question we thought would ever be asked, but now it even has an answer: Mehcad Brooks. Just how offensive is that spot? Let Twitter count the ways.
