For those who are unfamiliar, these little rubber babies (which are extremely creepy all on their own) are typically forced upon girls outside of family planning clinics (I got my first, along with threats, while going to a Planned Parenthood office for a pap smear several years ago), or used to bully young pregnant women into opting out of abortion regardless of the effect it has on their (or the future child’s) life.
Each one comes with a little business card that details development stages in utero — only it’s grossly inaccurate. For instance, the card insists that this model fetus mirrors the actual fetus twelve weeks after conception, in both size and development.
That said, these are not a social or political statement. While it’s obviously not a challenge to figure out where we stand on the issue of abortion, these are not intended to change anyone’s minds, nor were they created to offend anyone in particular, on either side of the argument (though we knew that was inevitable going in). They are simply part of a silly and tasteless art series.
We don’t expect everyone to like them, but keep in mind: no ACTUAL babies were harmed in the creation of these ornaments, and no one is going to run out and get 1,000 abortions simply because they saw a fake fetus hanging out of a glittery felt vagina.
