Thank Jim Carrey for Making the Case Against Abortion

Jim Carrey received praise from anti-abortion supporters for his latest artwork, saying he “blessed the pro life [sic] movement” with his “truly accurate (and therefore horrifying) portrayal of abortion.”

The actor’s his latest creation depicts Alabama governor Kay Ivey as a fully-formed fetus being aborted and a caption that reads, “I think If you’re going to terminate a pregnancy, it should be done sometime before the fetus becomes Governor of Alabama.”

The artwork is Carrey’s response to Ivey and her decision last week to sign a highly restrictive new law which virtually outlaws abortion throughout the state of Alabama. The law, and similar bills working their way through other state legislatures, is said by many intended as a direct challenge the Supreme Court’s landmark 1973 ruling in Roe v. Wade, which provides a fundamental “right to privacy” that protects a woman’s liberty to choose whether or not to terminate a pregnancy.

You can see the original art — and some of the praise it received — below:
