New Comedy ‘Superstore’ Tries to Make Abortion Funny, Fails Miserably

After making racist jokes in a previous episode, the new NBC comedy Superstore opened the episode titled “Mannequin” with jokes about abortion and Planned Parenthood.

Praised by Jonah (Ben Feldman) for choosing to keep her baby despite still being in high school, Cheyenne (Nichole Bloom) casually admits she’s only keeping her baby because she “couldn’t get a ride to Planned Parenthood.” (Cue the pro-abortion feminist screams about abortion access and the need for late term abortions.) Jonah helpfully offers to give her a ride, prompting store manager Glenn (Mark McKinney) to chime in, “I’d prefer if you didn’t offer to shuttle our employees to the abortion clinic.”

How often do you hear Planned Parenthood referred to as an “abortion clinic” in the media rather than as a “reproductive health care provider?” Planned Parenthood hates the word abortion, why else would they focus on euphemisms like “women’s health” and claim that “only” 3 percent of their services are abortion? While other shows spread the propaganda Planned Parenthood wants you to hear about what they do, Superstore just comes right out and calls it what it is, “Abortion, abortion, abortion, abortion!”
