Today's sign of the Apocalypse

A statute of a "nude Britney Spears giving birth."

The clay sculpture features a nude Britney Spears on a bearskin rug while giving birth to her firstborn because, according to Edwards, pop-star Britney Spears is the "ideal model for Pro-Life."

This is particularly ironic since Britney could just as easily be an ideal model for, as the Lady Exile might say, an extremely late-term abortion (say, twenty years or so post partum should do the trick).

I'm no expert, mind you, but who in the whorld gives birth that way, in that position?

I've never even imagined a human delivering a baby that way.

Heh... You're asking me? I suppose you could consult sources of lesser credibility on this topic, but they are few and far between.

My third child was delivered with the help of a mid-wife, rather than a obstetrician. She believed that the traditional position doctors force women into to deliver in hospitals is unnatural. I will say that I got the impression that after about 12 hours or so of labor, it helps just to change positions once in a while. Being on a bear rug would feel a heck of lot better than a hospital bed feet in the air (I would imagine). Remember, most women throughout history give birth in a squatting position. The hospital position has more to do with reducing hospital liability than the comfort of the mother.
As far as how a naked picture of Britney is supposed to be a statement for the anti-choice movement, I am at a loss.
