Today’s Lady News: Online Vote Abortion Poll Hoax Comes To A Merciful End

  • The online poll by a Minnesota couple regarding whether they should have an abortion is, mercifully, over. Factoring in duplicate votes, 78 percent of voters told Pete and Alisha Arnold to have an abortion, but not accounting for duplicate votes, 74 percent told the Arnolds to have a baby. Too bad it doesn’t matter anyway because the whole thing was all an anti-abortion hoax! [Gawker, USA Today]

Today’s Lady News: Couple’s Abortion Poll Was Totally A Pro-Life Hoax, Duh

  • The online poll about whether a Minnesota couple should have an abortion or bring the pregnancy to term? Totally an anti-abortion hoax. (Obviously.)

Also, Alisha Arnold has been fired form her job over this nonsense. [CNN, Gawker]
