I could make this game in 5 minutes.  Just 2 buttons, "Leave Texas" and "Have the child".

Just go door-to-door and say "Excuse me, sir, I have a petition to ban high school football, and, I think I just scratched your boyfriend's Silverado with my 'Tom Landry was a Commie' sign."

No, but you can choose to get raped, and your body has ways of shutting the whole thing down.

Yea, but the sound effects on the Japanese version are awful - all screechy and loud. ...and it's strangely pixilated.

I'm intrigued by the source of the story.  Sad commentary on the media around here if Aljazeera is a reliable source for American stories.

I'm heading off to work, but will be checking around the usual suspects (CNN, Fox, AP, etc.) later to see if this even gets a mention.

al Jezeera America is shaping up to be as good a news site as NPR or the BBC.  The only downside I've seen so far is that their Facebook feed is populated by commentators who are complete lunatics and not skilled in the way of English which makes them barely-literate wingnuts.

Just the American ones; they're seem to be balanced between right- and left-wing nuts when you go global.

Bah, why would I need a game to figure out how get an abortion? I am pretty sure that I can't get pregnant. Even if I could, there's just no way I could squeeze an entire baby out of my penis.

If they're in Texas, they can just go over the border to Mexico and buy some pills to "bring down your period". They're over the counter and have been used in the Hispanic community in border regions for a long time now. They don't consider it as sinful or whatever as abortion.

Dude, that's like a day trip, at most.

There has already been a flood of the drugs coming across the border and being sold on the black market.

Cunning plan Texas GOP, I don't think you thought this all the way through.

I can NOT watch Japanese porn with the audio. Why is it they all seem like they are getting raped, but are rendered weak as kittens and unable go get away or screech out meowing protests.

Ugh, please tell me real Japanese women aren't like that in bed.

I'm not sure what all that means but it does give me an idea for a game like this:  Difficulty Levels

Easy:  Rich, white teenager with liberal parents conservative parents worried only about their own reputation.

Normal:  20 something adult professional (race not a factor), but preacher's daughter

Hard:  Poor, black and no car

Heroic:  Illegal alien, sex-slave on the run who speaks no English


FTFY

You guys are forgetting that legalized abortion is really a racist plot to kill black babies.  Sure, they say they want to ban all abortions now, but I guarantee you the Republicans' end game is to refine the process the Democrats already started.

Still not sure it's rape if it's voluntary, no matter how violent.

What is with having to watch a video to read some damned text?
This is starting to happen more often, with bands or companies making their announcements via video without also releasing the text separately.  I can read faster than the video and my comprehension is better if I can read uninterrupted by useless pauses to wait for the next frame of text.

WTF?

I didn't figure it would take too terribly long. I know they've been coming across the border into Los Angeles for years now and guessed it was the same in TX. Now they can just charge more, I guess.

I think having a video is mandatory for Kickstarter and Indiegogo.
FWIW their actual indiegogo page has text that says pretty much what the video does.

I like that one of the donor perks is "the right to choose a character's name".  Yeah, talk about the financial hardships poor women face getting an abortion, then make me pay $1000 for the right to choose.

/ would anybody be interested in pooling some money together to name a character Drew Curtis?  I'll throw in $50 towards that end...
