We were bit dumbfounded when we saw this video from Lady Parts Justice League. It’s a parody video, “We Won’t Go Back-street Boys,” to celebrate Abortion Provider Appreciation Day.
The Abortion Provider Appreciation Day, is a serious effort in appreciating the work that abortion clinics are providing women with care and sound clinic practices.
Hence, the parody is a re-working of The Back Street Boy’s famous song “I Want It That Way,” and features original lyrics from the LPJL crew.
Why not, right? Oh my.
“You are true heroes, you all wear halos
Believe when we say
That you deserve cheesecake.
You give love to all those who walk through your doors
May we say, that we love you always.
Tell me why protestors gotta hate on you
Pumpkin Pie politicians want to punish you
Oh I will support you and we’re here to say, we love you always
And we made you cheesecake”
Lady Parts Justice League is preparing for the April 17th Comedy Benefit Show The Greatest Shit Show On Earth at the legendary Cutting Room in NYC. FB DETAILS.
Founded in 2015 by Daily Show Co-Creator Lizz Winstead, Lady Parts Justice League infuses humor to talk about reproductive rights while also dropping some knowledge and activism around reproductive rights and abortion into our pop culture and social lives, inspiring folks who have not been active in the feminist and reproductive rights movements to get on board. A rapid response creative production team made up of comedians, writers, and activists, The League is on call 24/7 producing videos, artistic memes and creating national actions that respond instantly to the breaking news surrounding reproductive rights issues.
Part of LPJL’s mission is to support and raise awareness about independent abortion providers who bear the brunt of anti-abortion legislation and harassment. Several times a year, the League goes on the road to perform comedy shows in a USO format bringing entertainment and love to these clinics and their communities. They also provide elbow grease at the clinics themselves, including anything from bringing lunch to building a fence to planting bushes to block protesters. Understanding that reproductive rights issues vary by race, class, and gender identity, Lady Parts Justice League is committed to diversity by creating content that fosters a multicultural, inclusive experience within the reproductive rights movement.
