Sarah Silverman Draws Criticism For Abortion Crack


Sarah Silverman has once again raised a few eyebrows, this time with a wise crack about abortion. The comic and her boyfriend, "Family Guy" writer Alec Sulkin, tweeted a photograph together in which Silverman appeared pregnant only adding the caption: "It's a burrito!"

Several hours later Silverman tweeted another image with a much flatter stomach claiming that she had a "quickie" abortion incase legalized abortion is overturned, writing: "Got a quickie aborsh in case R v W gets overturned."

In the tweet Silverman references that landmark 1973 Rowe vs. Wade court ruling which gave women the legal right to choose an abortion. The topic has been particularly hot in recent months as newly anointed Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney recently vowed to abolish the ruling if elected.
