If Wendy Davis 11-hour filibuster to protect late-term abortion in the Lone Star State wasnt proof enough of the Texas pro-abortion movements desperation, a new video game does the trick.
In Choice: Texas, designed by Carly Kocurek and Allyson Whipple and currently in development, players hunt for abortion access in Texas via the choose-your-own-adventure technique and confront obstacles such as geography and healthcare.
Gamers live vicariously through characters such as 35-year-old Latrice who, despite a long-time boyfriend, has never planned to have children, and between her career and family obligations, she feels she has her hands full enough. Another, 19-year-old Leah bartends as she save[s] up money and think[s] about what she would like to do.
Wow! So its of like Frodo bearing the Ring to Mordor to save Middle Earth. But the Ring you want to lob into the lava is a baby, and Middle Earth is your personal convenience. How inspiring.
Besides teaching awareness and empathy, Kocurek and Whipple hope the game provides, a sex education tool for older high schoolers. Whipple explained their intent in an interview, highlighting how Many people, including privileged pro-choice people, do not realize the extent to which people with less privilege struggle with geography, time, and money to obtain abortions.
Their IndieGoGo, which asked for donations, advertised the game in further detail:
The game Choice: Texas is an educational interactive fiction game which will be freely available on the web. Players will explore the game through one of several characters, each of whom reflects specific socioeconomic, geographic, and demographic factors impacting abortion access in Texas. Although billed as interactive fiction, Choice: Texas is based on extensive research into healthcare access, legal restrictions, geography, and demographics, and is reflective of the real circumstances facing women in the state.
In other words, as feminist site Jezebel translated: Sounds like a uniquely challenging game, and maybe something every anti-choice legislator should by forced to play.
Yeah, a thrill-a-minute experience. I youre going to trivialize infanticide with a video game, shouldnt it at least be fun?
That sounds like a game for that whatsit chick....you know, the beast that testified for St. Trayvon?
Yeah, I can feel the awareness and empathy just dripping off this one. Somehow I don't think this is quite the sort of "excitement" gamers are looking for, but what the heck, they already have Grand Theft Auto.
I wonder if they raised any money?
Anyone here want to invent another game? “Bash Whitey” where you take a club or flashlight to anyone who questions 1) Global Warming 2) Obama Birth Certificate or 3) Muslim terrorists
Sick, sick, sick.
It is more Like that game Hitman
Someone should have made a zombie killing game where the zombies shuffle around muttering “Hooooope Chaaaaaange”
I’d like to see a game called “Hippie Hunt.” You’d run through various terrains — urban, forest, desert, rural, coastal — killing off the hippies you’d expect to see in those environments on your quest to destroy the Master Bong. Bosses at each level could be famous unwashed wretches like Timothy Leary, Ken Kesey, Hunter Thompson, etc.. Super-bosses might be dipsticks like John Lennon, David Crosby, Tom Hayden ... And the Guardians of the Bong could be the Choom Gang, with a scrawny jug-eared Kenyan refugee as the Oberfuhrer.
Feminazis are sick with self-loathing.
“Someone should have made a zombie killing game where the zombies shuffle around muttering Hooooope Chaaaaaange”
Oh I like this one. We can have Joe Biden zombie that you can only kill with two blasts from a shotgun. The Nancy Pelosi zombie that infects you with botox. etc
