Hilarious: These women apologize to all the people who watched that viral abortion apology video.

Ha-ha factory Funny or Die came out with a video that transcends simple comedy.

Around the start of 2015, a pro-life group called Heroic Media released a video called "The Apology," and in it, men (and only men) apologize for the abortions they had.


If you're perplexed about how a man could possibly have an abortion, I award you some logic points because men don't own the equipment necessary to make that possible. Heroic Media's video puts the decision of whether or not to have a baby squarely in men's hands, completely obliterating the woman's part in the process — and in the video, consequently.


No, sir, I don't think you did.

How does the woman feel about her abortion? According to Heroic Media, we shouldn't care. Her former partner is sorry he let her have it, and that's all that matters apparently. Heroic Media's video makes no effort to highlight why the women had their abortions, how they feel about what happened, and what they did with their lives afterward.

All of this is highlighted in the below sketch by Funny or Die:

This may be a video that's been acted out, but thanks to Funny or Die (of all places), women have their rightful place as the leaders of the abortion conversation. It happens in their bodies, after all.

Recent tragic mass shootings in El Paso and Dayton have sparked a lot of conversation and action on the state level over the issue of gun control. But none may be as encouraging as the most recent one, in which 145 CEOs signed a letter urging the U.S. Senate to take action at their level.

The fine folks at Forbes are currently falling all over themselves trying to clean up the mess they created by publishing their 2019 list of 100 Most Innovative Leaders.

The problem: The list included 99 men and one woman. For those not so good with the math, that means according to Forbes, only 1% of the country's most innovative leaders are female.

Have you ever watched a movie that's so abysmally bad that you wonder how it ever even got made? Where you think, "Hundreds and hundreds of people had to have been directly involved in the production of this film. Did any of them ever think to say, 'Hey, maybe we should just scrap this idea altogether?"

That's how it feels to see a list like this. So how did Forbes come up with these results?

There's something delicious and addicting about those trendy recipe videos circulating online. You've seen them before: the quick and beautiful play-by-plays of mouthwatering dishes you wish you were eating at this very moment.

The recipes seem so simple and magical and get you thinking, "Maybe I can make that five-cheese bacon lasagna tonight." And before you know it, you're at the store loading up on Colby-Monterey Jack (or is that just me?).

For some families, though, the ingredients and final product look a little different. As part of Hunger Action Month, the hunger-relief organization Feeding America is using our obsession with cooking videos to highlight the reality many food-insecure families face when they sit down for dinner: hunger, and no food in sight.

By putting a twist on the bite-sized food videos all over the internet, they hope to raise awareness that hunger is an unacceptable reality for too many families.
