Unusual Christmas tree decoration: "Unborn Baby Ornament - US Troop Model"

Miss Poppy is selling this unusual Christmas tree ornament.
200712041126 Protect our troops - from the womb to the war. What if the fetus you were going to abort would grow up to be a soldier bringing democracy to a godless dictatorship?

Plastic replica of an 11-12 week old fetus, 3" long, holding a firearm in its precious little hand, with an assortment of other military paraphernalia, encased in a translucent plastic ornament, with a patriotic yellow ribbon on top. Includes a metal ornament hanger. If only a womb were this safe, attractive and reasonably priced!

Show that you support the "culture of life" by buying and proudly displaying one of these patriotic unborn Americans.

    – Your rush to defend yourself is revealing, as nobody generalized anything.
    – I hear Christian groups condemn a lot of people and things. It does not particularly endear them to me.
    – If you haven’t heard Muslim groups condemn 9-11, it’s because you weren’t listening.

  2. “I have yet to hear or see any condemnation of 9-11, the Danish Cartoon riots, or the Teddy Bear teacher, for example.”

    Then you weren’t paying attention…

  3. “Show that you support the “culture of life” by buying and proudly displaying one of these patriotic unborn Americans.”

    I believe that this is called “Irony”.

  4. LOL. I am sure that it was made in China too, which raises the image of all of the assembly workers watching this thing rolling by and thinking “WTF are the Amercians up to now?”

    And then I just thought the really horrible thought: well now the Chinese have an outlet for all the extra kids they’re not supposed to have. CHRISTMAS ORNAMENTS!

    Yes yes, I’m going to hell.

  5. High-LAR-ious. I suspected it was satire, and was relieved to find my suspicions confirmed. I wonder how many people will buy it unironically, however?

  6. I’ve just seen these little model fetuses (feti?) on the documentary “Jesus Camp”, sans weapon, being used in a totally non-ironic (and more than slightly disturbing) way. I therefore did not assume satire. Thank god they are, so to speak.

    No it’s not — he’s just anticipating the other side’s arguments.

  8. The above Christmas ornament reminds me of tampon ornament crafts as very much on the edge of offense. 
    But, I’m trying to see the irony as more "in front" than the crassness.
