The two issues are unrelated.  You are only making things worse for
yourself and the community by objecting to removal of a joke (A JOKE!)
from a technical manual that multiple people on list and on social media
have flagged as offensive.

If you're so passionate about *jokes* on abortion rights then I'd
suggest posting a separate patch that proposes inclusion of a new joke
that does not offend people.  If you can't think of one then that's OK
too; while humour is nice to have in documentation, it's not absolutely
necessary.
