"What better way to bring the joy of Christmas?" asks Pro-Life Wisconsin - slogan: 'Defending God's Plan,' though they fail to specify just whose God - as they prepare to harass women outside hospitals, Family Planning and other women's health clinics by singing carols before an empty manger representing Jesus and all the other "innocent babies being killed." A bonus thanks to some "awesome" supporters: Mary's Ultrasound billboards, featuring Baby Jesus with a halo and "He's on His way..." are back! They're in Chicago and elsewhere too. Jesus.

"Please spread this message far and wide. Most of all, prepare the way of the Lord by joining us in song to glorify the King of kings."
