The anxiety of unplugging and why we should disconnect to connect
Suspicionless searches at US border: the next battleground for press freedom
Ender’s lost children?
Last week, a truck was stopped at the US border carrying hundreds of frozen embryos from Mexico!
Who knows how many more are sneaking through, defrosting and taking root in the fertile loins of mama grizzlies across the non-gay states?
This comic never fails to bring the cowbell.
I thought one might try to use his natural-born status to become president, but we know that’s no longer necessary, amirite?

On a related note, a rather unusual comic strip drawn by a “prolife” cartoonist. Its main character is a fetus inside the womb. And the strip is now in its tenth year of publication. Ten years…I think even elephants have shorter gestation periods…
When I saw the image up top, I immediately thought it was the cover to a gangsta rap CD.
So THIS is what Arlene’s afraid of if she carries Rene’s baby to term…
hahaha. i am so glad i read this comment. =)
*sigh* we ALWAYS get defeated by our own lofty principles…
I was so going to read the whole thing, but after seeing the first panel, I got cold fetus. So to speak.
i find the image of a fetus smoking a cigarette in such a confined space to be highly distasteful.
Hilarious, especially in light of the long trend of anti-choice cartoons that only show the fetus and completely erase the mother, leaving her a darkened silhouette at best.
Difficult to speculate as to what the artist was thinking, but if I’m guessing right I think he is spot on. Obviously no one blaims the fetuses, but by showing the fetuses he is able to debunk everyone’s over protectiveness side that inevitably dismisses the issues at hand rather than facing them.
See “First Trimester Fetus: Criminal Mastermind” on the Onion’s CD NOT FOR BROADCAST (1994). Much funnier.
Whats really amazing is not the level of intelligence of those unborn fetuses or their ability to coordinate attacks on the U.S., but the fetus’s ability to shoot the agent directly from an image of himself on a sonogram.
I have a suggestion for a moral principle: Whether a person has rights is independent of the emotional state of anybody else.
This has implications for both unwanted children and unwanted aliens (better known as illegal aliens).
In related news, the saying “You’re nobody until somebody loves you.” looks less sappy and more horrifying.
What moral system are you suggesting currently changes your rights based on someone else’s emotional state?
