Onion's 'Abortionplex' Gets Yelp Page

The Abortionplex started out as a whopper of an Onion tale, but took on a life of its own when a few Facebook users, believing it was true, got hilariously angry about it. Now it has spawned a Yelp page, complete with a 3.5-star rating based on more than 100 "reviews." Sample lines:

  • “I recommend getting a season pass like I did! I got the Gold Package so I can bring 2 girlfriends with me and their abortions are covered. Such a good deal and a bonding moment.”

  • “The food court was as everyone has said. amazing? I spent the time gathering free samples (Chick Fil-A FTW) and got to slowly enjoy an Orange Julius as my niece had her lawfully obligatory sonogram.”
  • “The only way it could be better would be if they offered drive-thru service, but I guess you just can't rush some things.”
  • “I can't support the Abortionplex anymore. I used to bring girls there every few months, back when it was called ‘Abortion Place.’ Now I go, and the lines are way to long, and it's all commercialized.”
  • “Originally came to the 'Plex on a whim with a LivingSocial Instant Deal... what a gem! For $11 I was treated to the their ‘lunch’ combo of a basic abortion AND an order of General Tso's chicken.”
