Gentle readers, I am chortling over my morning coffee at this one. Yes, it’s the national “Cupcakes for Life” campaign, coming your way on October 9. Mark your calendars! What is this latest salvo from the “pro-life” movement? Let them explain….
Why Cupcakes? Simply because everyone wants them!
Cupcakes were designed for children’s birthday parties. We love Children [sic] and we love birthdays. We think this would be a good way to tell people that we think that every child should be allowed to have a birthday. Bring in a tray of cupcakes for any group of people and you will find that they will flock to get them. As soon as they take a bite they will probably ask, “Who’s birthday is it?”
Then you answer. “It’s no ones birthday. These cupcakes represent the 50,000,000 children who weren’t allowed to be born, who never had a birthday.” The cake in their mouth will become dry and the moment will hopefully become quite somber. Then you say, “If you and I were aborted we wouldn’t have a birthday party either.”
BWAHAHAHAHAHAHA! :::wipes away tears::: Yeah, let me know how that works out. I’m sure a free cupcake will simply sweep away every principled belief that people might have about the limiting government interference in our private lives, or a woman’s right to control her own body. If only they’d brought cupcakes to the Supreme Court in 1973, Roe v. Wade might have gone in a completely different direction. Plus, it’s sure to make you extra-popular with your co-workers!
Also, y’all? This makes me want cupcakes. I can only hope abortion stays legal so I can get some of those sweet, sweet cupcakes.
