7 Days of Holiday Weirdness: Unborn Baby Soldier Ornament

December 21st, 2008 by Rick Marshall · No Comments ·

Yesterday I put the spotlight on some bizarre (but occasionally quite brilliant) Christmas Trees, so now it’s time to address the ornaments that take a tree to the next level of weird. Case in point: The “Unborn Baby Ornament – US Troop Model.”

Protect our troops – from the womb to the war. What if the fetus you were going to abort would grow up to be a soldier bringing democracy to a godless dictatorship?

And that’s not all…

Plastic replica of an 11-12 week old fetus, 3″ long, holding a firearm in its precious little hand, with an assortment of other military paraphernalia, encased in a translucent plastic ornament, with a patriotic yellow ribbon on top. Includes a metal ornament hanger. If only a womb were this safe, attractive and reasonably priced!

Show that you support the “culture of life” by buying and proudly displaying one of these patriotic unborn Americans.

Oh, and they have a “brown” version, too. Awesome.
