Action Alert!

art -- and reality

By Diogenes (articles ) | Mar 15, 2005

Perhaps in response to Hillary's call for more feelings-friendly abortion language, NARAL Pro-Choice America has sponsored a sex-ed haiku contest. The specimens below are the winners -- not, as you may be tempted to believe, parodies thereof.

Consenting adults
are making their own choices
freedom is sexy
-- James

Monocratic fools
keep your laws off my body
I know how to choose
-- Jacquie

I am a Woman!
Feminine and soft, yet strong.
My Body, My Choice.
-- Laura

Empower women
to make well informed choices
trust them to do so
-- Jacquie

Ars longa, the proverb has it, vita brevis.

One must admit that, ars apart, the vita was very brevis indeed for the contents of these plastic containers, assembled, docketed, and shelved by spirits kindred to the poets showcased above. WARNING: Not a link for meal-time viewing.

    The pictures speak for themselves. The children of Rachel are gone.

    These photos are both disturbing and frigthening. We should be praying for God's mercy. How can we let this slaughter continue daily? Fasting and prayer are our only hope. Many rosaries.
