South Park nails it

I find South Park to be pretty hit-or-miss. This one totally nails it:

South Park: "Abortion is the ultimate form of cheating"

The show is a take-off of Stand and Deliver. A girl runs out of class crying, then tells the Jaime Escalante character that she's pregnant:

TEACHER: All right -- let's go get you an abortion.

GIRL: No. I'm Catholic. I think abortion is wrong!

TEACHER: Abortion isn't wrong! What's the one thing I've been teaching you?

GIRL: That cheating is good?

TEACHER: Yes! And abortion is the ultimate form of cheating! You're cheating nature itself! Why do rich white girls get ahead in life? Because they get abortions when they're young. They get pregnant -- but they still want to go to college. So -- whatever! They just cheat. They cheat that little critter in their belly right out of a chance at life.


TEACHER: It is at our most challenging times that we must cheat our very hardest!
