Dare I ask what "He was in his 156th trimester" means? Lyra Belaqua Communique Delegate scorecard 23:12, 14 May 2008 (EDT)

It's a joke. You see, people who argue about abortion will sometimes argue at which point in a pregnancy - which trimester - it would no longer be ethical to perform an abortion. Slepian performed abortions and was murdered for it. hence....oh, never mind. PFoster 23:28, 14 May 2008 (EDT)

.....So he was 52? Lyra Belaqua Communique Delegate scorecard 23:31, 14 May 2008 (EDT)

Expansion[edit]

In his X trimester[edit]

I'm not sure i understand why this is in here. It sounds like something a pro-life person would say. I get it's supposed to be a joke, I guess... but it's it really funny?Sun mowse.pngEn attendant Godot 14:09, 17 June 2011 (UTC)
