OK-- so I just saw a bumper sticker that said:
" If Mary had been pro-choice there wouldn't be a Christmas."

That is so wrong on so many levels. It assumes that every woman with a choice would CHOOSE an abortion. I think that really is what drives the Christian Right in their anti abortion campaign. The fear that someone they know and love would make that choice themselves. Or even, if they had a choice they might choose to do something different. If there isn't a plethora of options then you can steer people the way you want them to go by limiting them.

So when you give people a choice you have to be willing to deal with what they choose.

Huh, god didn't seem to have any problem with that when he gave us free will. Perhaps all the anti-abortion activists should consider that.

I humbly submit the t-shirt:

"Who Would Jesus Bomb?"

with the illustration of a bomb dropping on Osama.

Even if you're mentally challenged and/or asleep, it's difficult not to get the point behind Jesus' "turn the other cheek" doctrine, but someone managed.
