Did you know there's an abortion desert in the U.S.? Allow this really 'female' puppet to show you.

How do you make a very serious topic (like a major women's health care crisis) memorable? A little satire and a whole lot of puppet.

Without further ado, I present to you "The Abortion Desert."

Some things you really have to see for yourself. But in case you didn't watch, here's the gist:

There's a nearly 1,200-mile-wide "desert" of abortion providers from Idaho to North and South Dakota.

There are only 10 cities in that entire 5 state area that offer any form of abortion access. Crazy right?


Well, if you think that's crazy, try watching a pink uterus named Eunice trek across the desert. I told you, you kind of have to watch it.

Eunice is hot. Eunice is tired. But Eunice is on a mission to show the hardships of crossing such a desert, especially if you're a poor woman or a woman of color.

These two groups are disproportionately affected when access to health care is limited, and research shows that funding restrictions force 1 in 4 women to carry unwanted pregnancies to term.

I, for one, didn't know about the abortion desert or what it means for millions of women. Did you?

So go ahead and share this clever little video to spread the word about the importance of making reproductive care available to all women — no matter where they live.

Brittany Kinley, a mother from Mansfield, Texas, had a hilarious mom fail her and she's chalking it up to being just another crazy thing that happened in 2020.

When Kinley filled out the order form for her son Mason's kindergarten class pictures, there was an option to have his name engraved into the photos. But Kinley wasn't interested in having her son's name on the photos so she wrote "I DON'T WANT THIS" on the box.

Well, it appears as though she should have left the box blank because the computer or incredibly literal human that designed the photographs wrote "I DON'T WANT THIS" where mason's name should be.

Twins born with separate fathers are rare in the human population. Although there isn't much known about heteropaternal superfecundation — as it's known in the scientific community — a study published in The Guardian, says about one in every 400 sets of fraternal twins has different fathers.

Simon and Graeme Berney-Edwards, a gay married couple, from London, England both wanted to be the biological father of their first child.

"We couldn't decide on who would be the biological father," Simon told The Daily Mail. "Graeme said it should be me, but I said that he had just as much right as I did."

In December 2018, The Utah Department of Transportation opened the largest wildlife overpass in the state, spanning 320 by 50 feet across all six lanes of Interstate 80.

Its construction was intended to make traveling through the I-80 corridor in Summit County safer for motorists and the local wildlife.

The Salt Lake Tribune reports that there were over 100 animal incidents on the interstate since 2016, giving the stretch of highway the unfortunate nickname of "Slaughter Row."
