This why no sane person takes you seriously.


Um ... eewwww?

A right to life group in Racine is under fire after mailing controversial material to 44,000 people.

It included an informational letter, a fundraising envelope and a small plastic fetus.

Mystical Listrom said she was not happy with what she found inside when she opened a letter from Wisconsin Right to Life accompanied by a plastic fetus.

The group behind the surprise tries to explain.

"We thought it would be appropriate to send out some information to get people talking about the subject," said Dave Obernberger of Wisconsin Right to Life.

Dave and Bonnie Obernberger, with the Racine County chapter of Wisconsin Right to Life, are the people behind the mailing.

They said the plastic figure represents an 11- or 12-week fetus.

They sent it out this week to mark the 35-year anniversary of Roe Vs. Wade, the Supreme Court decision legalizing abortion.

"I pray that they'll look at it a little more than being offended by it, but being educated by it," Dave Obernberger said.

Where do these people come from? And are they going to use them as the prize in a Cracker Jack™ box next? Fuck ... the fetus-fetishists probably think that’s an outstanding idea. Never mind.

I think I still have a brass "twelve-week-old feet" lapel pin somewhere--I can't for the life of me remember where I got it.

I saw a person wearing one once. 'Nuff said.

Given those nutters I'm surprised they did not mail semen and blather about "saving the humans"...
