Planned Parenthood tried to be cool with a new online campaign inspired by “Buffy” creator Joss Whedon, but it didn’t go over well. When your product is abortion, “slay” and “everyone has a hero inside” isn’t the best combination of words.
Whedon, who created TV’s “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” and directed Marvel’s “The Avengers,” made a short film supposedly showing what the world would be like without Planned Parenthood. The abortion organization urged supporters to “Watch. Share. Slay” with the video because “every single one of us has a hero inside; and it’s our responsibility to use our superpowers to slay.”
On Friday’s “The Morning Blaze with Doc Thompson,” Doc Thompson and the guys talked about more slogans that would be fitting for Planned Parenthood: “Keeping the race pure since 1905,” “Hot and ready abortions” or maybe “Slay, dismember, sell.”

“The ‘slay’ is what you do after the video,” Doc explained Planned Parenthood’s new social media campaign. “Accurate, troubling to some, obviously not troubling to Planned Parenthood or they wouldn’t be murdering people.”
