Hero Initiative

This site, 'Until abortion ends' (subtitled 'a hero initiative'*) had me laughing out loud.

In a way, it's genius. It chomps down on the Merkin fetish for celebrity and offers a little piece of it to deluded young fetus fetishists in exchange for giving up something 'rilly rilly rilly important'.

Like: Coca-Cola, Pepsi, M&M's, Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, sleeping in, IPods, french fries, and coffee.

Let's get this straight. For your one minute of fame, you have to give up only one thing. So, presumably, the Coke abstainers can hit the Pepsi as hard as they want. And the M&M-deprived can switch with the peanut-butter-cup refuseniks.

I think this young woman should trade with the guy giving up coffee. She could use a little, um, pep.

*I looked up 'hero initiative' to see if it's a thing. It is.
The Hero Initiative, formerly known as A Commitment to Our Roots, or ACTOR, is the first federally recognized not-for-profit organization dedicated to helping comic book creators, writers and artists in need.

Didn't really think or google that through, did they?

ADDED: This suggestion on Twitter from CC: 'I will hold my head under water'.

Hmmm . . . if that's "heroic", a major sacrifice to the cause that many may not feel up to, maybe there's a flip side.
Does that mean we could get lots of them to lay off with a modest bribe of M&Ms, bottles of coke, freedom fries or whatnot?

Snort. So, unless all women in the US never ever ever have legal abortions ever again, including the ones whose lives are at risk because of pregnancy, some religious believers will have to cut back on excess junk food, skipping a meal now and then, lazing in bed, computer face time, and rpg? abortion in the US causes the fitness index of Americans to improve? I'll just presume teen pregnancy levels rise along with that since contraception is abortion.

Ok then.

When they get sugar-deprived enough, that might work. :)

LOL. I hadn't thought that far. What a terrible tragedy! Merkins getting fit in protest. :D

Heh. Fetus Fetishists morph into Feed-Us Fetishists.
