Roe at 30: Artwork and Poster Contest
Planned Parenthood ^ | 12-14-2002 | TeenWire

Posted on 12/14/2002 12:46:21 PM PST by Notwithstanding

It was 30 years ago, on January 22, 1973, that the U.S. Supreme Court, in its Roe v. Wade decision, guaranteed a woman's right to choose abortion. But now, states throughout the nation are passing laws that restrict abortion rights. We can never forget that preserving freedom requires constant effort.

In honor of the Roe anniversary, Planned Parenthood is sponsoring a contest: to celebrate 230 years of choice in an original piece of artwork or a poster. We hope you'll join our efforts to keep abortion legal and to celebrate the stories of women who have benefited from the Supreme Court decision.

Deadline: Entries must be received no later than December 13, 2002. The First Place winner will receive $800; Second Place, $350; Third Place, $150.


TOPICS: Crime/Corruption; Culture/Society; Extended News; Front Page News; News/Current Events; Philosophy
KEYWORDS: abortion; burningbabies; dismemberingbabies; plannedparenthood; pullingbabiesapart; roe

Christmas cards and now contests. PP must really be desperate to have people think that they are something other than baby-killers.

It is interesting, with all of the Trent Lott controversy of late, that PP's true mission is never condemned.

Wonder if they'll get any blowups of the "horror house" room scene, with a woman wrapped in a bloody sheet, holding a skinned squirrel?

that is too funny.... but to have an abortion you don't have to be 18 or get your parents permission... perhaps it is too sad...

This is my favorite.

The English translation of the French is "This is not a baby."

"Row" is horrofied over what she's done. She is now a speaker and active pro-life activist.
She should ask for Copy rights on the name "Row".

Seeing that an aborted fetus is not considered life by these baby torturers, how about a few posters of bloody body "trophies" to help her cause? To them, an infant dismembered alive is considered "Art."

Thanks, notwithstanding, for putting your artistic genius to work on this one! These would be funny - if they weren't so true, and if so many real human lives hadn't been sucked up by the PP monster.

This is great. But I followed the links to the website you got this from and couldn't find a thing about those posters. It would be nice to find out who did them to ask permission to use them. I would like to post a few around this socialist hellhole I call home. (Not my house. Montpelier, VT)

Let's end legal abortion. Not by praying, but by voting.

The First Place winner will receive $800; Second Place, $350; Third Place, $150.

A more perfect opportunity for the use of the term 'Blood Money' is hard to imagine.

The Grand Prize is the Pol Pot honorarium and an all expense paid vacation to the killing fields of Cambodia where you'll be presented with the human relic of your choice.

The author of the posters in post #5 replied to me in e-mail this morning and said
"Sure! Use them in any way you want. Don't bother giving me credit (no, really, please don't!): They were just something I threw together in photoshop for 'blog fodder and not really representative of my work in general."

If this was just 'throw together' work he must do some great stuff. I certainly liked them. The artwork may not have been much more than cut-and-paste but the creative thought brought about a powerful counter message to the PP poop.

To kill the indvidual in your picture, as if it were an animal, is indeed a cruel act. And women have this done every day like they are having a wart removed. It's pathetic. VOTE to end abortion. Prayers are NOT working, because the Lord wants you to VOTE against it.
