The article explains where he got it. Now, I think there's irony on both sides. The government charging him with a crime that pretty much assumes the personhood denied by the abortion laws (I'm assuming a dead cat in a jar would be OK). Then there's the irony that this protestor believes the baby is a human being and is displaying it's corpse ot make a political point.
Dagonee Edit: Why is there an "Accused of Date Rape" ad at the bottom of this thread?
If this weren't so disturbing, it'd be hilarious. As it is, however, it's just disturbing.
I kind of doubt the charges will stick. But then what? If fetuses in jars are effective protest tools for the anti-abortion protestors, wont they all want one? And that will put pressure on for MORE abortions!
(at least that's the argument they've used to say that we shouldn't allow use of fetal stem cells, so wouldn't it apply here too?)
It's a vicious cycle people! Get off the bandwagon now before its too late.
It's a slippery slope! Quick, grab a sled! Last one to the bottom's a rotten egg. Or sperm. Your choice.
I am a passionate pro-life person, but the idea of protesting and waving around a dead fetus disturbs me.
What is the point he's trying to make? That a fetus looks like a real baby? That's not exactly hard for most people to accept - we have three D ultrasounds now, it's extremely obvious that a fetus looks like a real baby from a very early age. I don't understand his point and why it couldn't have been made with a poster containing an ultrasound picture. He was doing this for shock value, and I don't like that.
Fight the fight against abortion legally, and with the truth, and with love for all involved, especially the woman in the crisis pregnancy. Bloody pictures of body parts and dead babies in bottles - it's purpose is only to horrify.
Yes, the details of abortion are disturbing and horrific and the truth is an important weapon, but there are ways of going about it and I don't think this is one.
