Planned Parenthood And NASA Set Date For Historic First Abortion In Space

WASHINGTON, DC— In a press conference on Capitol Hill, officials from NASA announced that after an improbable collaboration with Planned Parenthood, they have reached the final stages of planning for a historic first abortion in space.

The initial proposal was set to see the first birth in space, however it was always seen as a longshot due to lack of funding and considerable risk to the infant’s life. After Planned Parenthood stepped in to contribute $2.7 billion dollars in taxpayer money, NASA updated the mission accordingly.

Marianne Kennedy, 31, was chosen for the mission from a group of female astronauts, and after passing a series of rigorous tests, was promptly impregnated. She read prepared remarks at the press conference, calling the mission “a dream come true,” and saying, “ever since I was a little girl, I’ve always wanted to bring my right to choose to the vacuum of space.”

Republicans in Congress have objected vehemently to the mission and Senate Minority leader Mitch McConnell has filed an emergency injunction in the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals to delay the launch date while the legality of the mission is challenged.
