An Ornament Worth A Thousand Words

Hat tip and thanks for ruining my dinner to Media Czech of BlueGrassRoots for topping the blog with the image below. I, being of a far more empathetic disposition, will give you the description as a warning first.

(Yes, this is an actual item for sale - BGR has the link.)

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.
Also available in a "Brown" model

How does this one item embody everything that's sociopathic and beyond hope or help about the wingnut freakazoids? Don't make me count the ways ....

Media Czech gives his hat tip to Bean at Lawyers, Guns and Money, who not only had the good taste to post it last night AFTER dinner, but also explains the too-good-to-be-true description.

The description is fake -- or at least tongue in cheek. But the product is not. It is actually for sale. In both colors. The purveyor, Miss Poppy, is an "Adult Christian" shop run by a born-again Christian woman that sells "anti-masturbatory cream" (which you are to "keep applying until you get relief") as well as upside down American flags intended to express the owner's displeasure at the evisceration of civil rights. The thread that ties these products together under the banner of an alternative christian shop? Making Money. Because, as the website's tagline informs us, "What a Trend We have in Jesus!" Religion...a great way to get rich!
