One of the photos on Joe Mande’s “Look at This Fucking Hipster” blog features two shaggy-haired, lip-pierced, five-o-clock-shadowed hipsters playing tonsil hockey, with the caption: “We should be careful. This is how abortions are made.” Clearly those two have never visited a Planned Parenthood clinic for a little reproductive coaching. That’s where Mande steps in. Tonight, he joins comedians Andrea Rosen, Sara Schaefer, Jared Logan, Jessi Klein, and host Rose Surnow in We Love You: A Benefit for Planned Parenthood, for the pro-choice birth-control organization, which has recently faced losing its ability to do its job after the House voted to strip it of its federal funding. The Republican attack on a woman’s right to choose will never be funnier.
