Since actually airing the abortion episode of Family Guy would get Fox firebombed, the cast instead had a live reading of the episode.

#1: I find FOX hillarious. One one side they're promoting whatever right-wing shenanigans they can and on the other they've got fairly liberal, animated shows like this or Matt Groening shows. I guess this is what happens when these interests conflict.

Fun fact: Abortion is actually on the Family Guy crew's "let's hold back a little on these topics. We're kinda overusing them and we don't want it to become a cheap laugh"-list.

#2: I love Alex Borstein

TopMonkey lets be honest did you ever laugh as hard at shakesspear as you did at this, and in ancient rome for comedy it would be a porn of sorts. I don't see why we can't have some of tht on Prime time telivision. Hell they let Kath and Kim (a show about 2 lezbians) on at seven where i live. Heres the link. Becareful though.

I do understand why it's a big deal to people.
However, comedy has always been about pushing issues and social norms. When I say always, I feel pretty comfortable with that term. The jester was the only one who could make fun of the king, as long as he was careful he wouldn't get his head cut off. Shakespeare pushed the boundaries with his comedies, which were very political and dangerous for their time.

While I hate to put the crass humor of Family Guy in the same realm as Shakespeare, it works. The writers know what the issues of the day are, they know they push buttons, and they do it on purpose. The humor is a way to make it palatable.

Just like the jester who did go to far, sometimes you get your head cut off. So be it. A good comedian is worth his weight in gold.

I honestly don't see why this is such of a big deal.
One thing that I've noticed about Family Guy, is the fact that they cover topics that many other cartoons don't talk about.
Like ;Abortion, Atheism and other things.
I would like to see this episode animated.
