The funniest Pro-Life billboard ever.

(click) NO. SHE REALLY IS. SHE'S GOING TO STAB HER LOWER ABDOMEN OVER AND OVER AND OVER UNTIL SHE HITS THAT SMALL LUMP OF CELLS IN HER UTERUS THAT IS ME! HEEELLLPPP! See 27 more anti-abortion billboards here. Related: two recent despicable American anti-choice boards here (in Chicago) and here (in NYC).

Don't think they realised what it says if we just read the highlighted red words...

I believe that headline won a One Show pencil nigh on a decade ago. Although in this case, it's the visual that puts the fu in fun here.

Maybe I'm dense - but it *is* sorta clever. I first read it as the preggo girl talking, THEN as the foetus. SO hey, made *me* think. But the message is romantic marlarky so it didn't really work in the end.

I don't think pro-choice or anti-abortion ads are ever meant to make converts but, rather, to rally their own troops into action. Ideally, it should be a dog-whistle, provoking action from their own side but not a reaction from the other.

To the anti-abortion believer, the joke is probably darkly funny yet poignant/moving. To a pro-choice believer, it's just plain funny.
I imagine that this it's effective in its job of preaching solely to its own choir. However, not being a member of that particular choir, I'm not really in a position to know.

/mixed, overwrought metaphors
