21. Those ingrates!
Edited on Wed Mar-29-06 03:33 PM by rocknation

"Monument to Pro-Life: The Birth of Sean Preston," believed Pro-Life's first monument to the 'act of giving birth,' is purportedly an idealized depiction of Britney in delivery. Natural aspects of Spears' pregnancy, like lactiferous breasts and protruding naval, compliment a posterior view that depicts widened hips for birthing and reveals the crowning of baby Sean's head...

"A superstar at Britney's young age having a child is rare in today's celebrity culture. This dedication honors Britney for the rarity of her choice and bravery of her decision," said gallery co-director, Lincoln Capla...

"Britney provides inspiration for those struggling with the 'right choice'," said artist Daniel Edwards, recipient of a 2005 Bartlebooth award from London's The Art Newspaper. "She was number one with Google last year, with good reason--people are inspired by the beauty of a pregnant woman..."

How could the pro-lifers POSSIBLY have a problem with this? They should be delighted by the publicity!


DISCLAIMER: Having one's hips in the air while the baby is crowning doesn't strike me as being either comfortable for the mother or safe for the baby. But never having given birth myself, I feel I should most humbly defer to those who have some actual experience in this matter rather than offer a totally unqualified opinion.
