Adoption Not Abortion - The Bumper Sticker
About 2 hours ago I saw a variant of this bumper sticker on the rear of a Humvee (surprised?) parked in the parking lot of the Burger King by the entrance to the Quantico Marine Corps base south of DC. Feeling charitable I thought I would engage the owner in a bit of a conversation. It went like this:
Craig: Hi. I saw your bumper sticker and had to ask how many children have you adopted?
Craig: I saw your bumper sticker and had to ask how many children have you adopted.
Humvee: Oh, that. Well, my husband and I have not adopted any children. We have three of our own.
Craig: If you are suggesting that others give up their unwanted child rather than abort it, why aren't you out there offering to adopt them?
Humvee: Well my husband and I chose not to adopt but to have our own children. We just think abortion is wrong and people should choose to adopt rather than abort.
Craig: So its o.k. for you to choose to not adopt a child but its not o.k. for a woman pregnant with an unwanted child to choose to end it with an abortion?
Humvee: (She now realizes she stepped in a trap) Your one of those liberals aren't you? (She obviously hadn't seen the bumper stickers on the back of my car).
Craig: Yes and proud of it.
Humvee: Thats what I thought. (She now turned around and stormed to her car).
Craig: Thanks for choosing to talk to me about adoption.
God/Allah I love catching Repignofascists in their own hypocrisy.
