Oh Fetus Tree, Oh Fetus Tree
I’m not sh*tting you. Never mind the whole “Christ in Christmas” deal; now we have to worry about the bible beaters hanging fetus ornaments in trees. This is in Kansas — what is the matter with Kansas? (KCTV5):
A Christmas tree that a pregnancy counseling organization provided to a women’s fitness center prompted three people to cancel their memberships because the tree is decorated with plastic figures meant to represent fetuses.
“This is insidious,” said Kelly Jones, one of the women who quit Body Boutique last week. “This is in my gym.” She said the fitness center is a place to promote physical and mental health, not to confront a polarizing issue such as abortion.
Lorinda Hartzler, co-owner of Body Boutique, said that when Birthright of Lawrence asked about providing the tree it said it had no political agenda and wanted only to assist pregnant women in their decision-making process…The tree had about a dozen blue and pink stockings, each stuffed with a plastic figure and attached card that labeled the dolls as being “between 11 and 12 weeks old.”
Coupons for Birthright videos, pamphlets and children’s clothes were also in the tree. Coupons included savings on a video titled “After the Choice,” another video showing abortion procedures and a brochure on emergency contraception known as the “morning-after pill.”
This will really enhance your workout experience, huh?
