fetus cookies 4.jpgA chagrined but valiant Rachel Joy Larris (aka NewsCat_in_DC) attempted yesterday to defend her fetus cookies on the Abortion Gang blog in the post, “Fetus cookies, or absurdity as activism.”
Larris claimed 1 goal accomplished was “driv[ing] the anti-choice side a bit crazy,” namely moi. Well, no, we were simply disgusted, which Larris’s fellow pro-aborts frankly explained to her deluded self:

It also may crossed a line of good taste, even for ardent pro-choice activists….
Afterwards some of my pro-choice friends who aren’t activists, chided me for the prank. They said I was adding fuel to the antis’ fire and making the pro-choice side look bad….

Right. And such antics trivialize what reputable pro-aborts acknowledge: Abortion is bloody serious. Or not. Larris thinks mocking at our arguments helps:

When the other side is making an irrational argument, the best response may not be to make a rational argument. I know this can sound counter-intuitive, but… I think by highlighting the absurdity of the anti-choice movement we can gain more supporters, not less.

So Larris needs to dig a little deeper for irrational pro-life myths to mock.
Nevertheless, do you agree that reaching to the absurd “gain[s] more supporters, not less”? Bear in mind there are also absurd players on our side.
