Re: Nude Britney Spears Giving Birth Statue - Monument to Pro-Life

Something fake about it—there is no beauty (more interest in the details of the hairdo than any substance), no emotional content or expression as others have said…quite stiff, with poor anatomy: take a look at the misplaced right shoulder in the posted photo, for instance.

The sculpture definitely shows the female in an animalistic way that tends toward misogyny. Only our four-legged friends give birth that way. It also fails to show birth as something beautiful, sexualizing it, as if that were the only way it could be made acceptable.

Ditto to what others have said about Britney as poster child for pro-life. She is a married, multi-millionaire who chose to get pregnant, not a teen welfare mother who seriously considered abortion, struggled with a weighty decision and chose to have the child. What’s the connection?
