But what would they sing?

Grooms for life: Denise Noe has a plan to reduce abortions by recruiting godly single men to marry knocked-up whores who will thereupon resile from their baby-murd'rin' ways and fawn upon the godbothering grooms in gratitude thereafter 'til death do them part.
the screaming demonstrators outside abortion clinics would soon be replaced by swains in bow ties, holding rings and serenading the pregnant women.
As usual, the pro-life rhetoric totally ignores the probability that many of the women seeking abortions are already married. Also, there are other religious conservatives arguing that loveless marriages are suss too.

Hat-tip to Feministe's Jill. Punkassblog's Kyso and punkass marc have more.

Hmmm ... Maybe 'Roxanne' at the wedding, and 'Ruby, Don't Take Your Love to Town' a bit further down the track.

Or, if it all went pear-shaped from the get-go, maybe 'Ode to Billie Joe' -- depending on what it was you think Billie Joe and the girl up on Choctaw Ridge wuz throwin' off the Tallahatchie Bridge ...

"Little Sister, don't you do what your big sister done"

I can't hink of any more offhand.

Obviously, they'd have to switch a few words around.

This _is_ heavy-handed, uninspired satire, isn't it?
Isn't it?

Did you read the comments as well as the article? I don't think any regular MND readers took it as satire, lumpen or no.
