A Womb with a View

Umbert the UnbornWhen I noticed that a dreadful stick figure comic was winning in the Best Comic Strip category of the 2007 Weblog Awards, I decided to look into other comic strips which weren’t on the list. And I found Umbert the Unborn. It’s brilliant. Umbert is a pre-born child and the comic strip chronicles his adventures in the womb. How could any woman want to abort the cute little guy?

Predictably the militant feminists and atheists over at Feministing revealed their first impulse:

Personally, I find it hard to read that strip without wanting to see Umbert aborted.

They even fantasize about it:

Umbert: I’m so glad abortions are illegal. Now mommy will have to have me! Thank god… (coat hanger comes up from below).
Umbert: Uh-oh. (end of strip)

That’s pretty cold hearted. Among other complaints are that he is white, male and, gasp, a pre-born! And, being unborn, he is also, naturally, pro-life. Everything that feminists loathe rolled into one. The horror that the unborn they so desire to abort might be shown to be a living, feeling human being! The ghouls at feministing (reminds me of the lesbian practice of “fisting,” don’t ask) are rather afraid that this innocent cartoon character will persuade one of their feminazi sisters from aborting mission. Congratulations, Gary Cangemi! You’re a genius.

Another comic that might have been included on the list of Best Comic Strips would be the pro-life Faithmouse by Dan Lacey. It’s a little odd, but it might appeal to furries. I’m not sure if that’s a good thing or a bad thing. I’m still evaluating Faithmouse. It appears to be for mature audiences, so perhaps the kiddies should stay away from this one.

But be sure to check out Umbert the Unborn. It will appeal to children and adults alike. There’s a rather funny spoof of Star Trek and Star Wars going on right now. “Vile Evil Space Alien on Board.” That cracks me up!

  1. Mr. Psycheout,

    I took a look at the Umbert comics you provided to see if they would be appropriate for my children. They love a good, family-appropriate comic strip, but good ones are truly hard to find. After viewing the comics, I don’t believe I can let my children look at them.

    First of all, they are published in the National Catholic Register. I realize that the papists have done good work in the pro-life movement. However, they have launched campaigns against the death penalty, which is a proven deterrent to murder, and against wars that are necessary to defend the freedoms of Christian nations, especially ours. They are also quick to take the side of illegals and they bring a lot of foreigners into America through their charities. Our town alone is swimming with Somalis and Kurds who were brought here through the Catholic charities. Nobody at my grocery store speaks English anymore.

    Secondly, I don’t want my children viewing a comic strip showing a white and black child together in the womb. This is just plain wrong. While I understand the pro-life slant of the strip, I really don’t understand this picture. What is the artist trying to show? I don’t understand how black and white babies can be in the same womb. It’s completely impossible and hurts the credibility of the comic strip.

    Anyway, I don’t really find the comic strip that funny, even though I support unborn babies fully.

    I thought this was a “so-called” family sight. I guess that rule does’nt apply to Psykkkeout (king ok the fisted).

  4. Mr. Spacebrother,

    Seeing that you are a liberal, I can understand your stereotypical, knee-jerk response to call everyone who doesn’t agree with your immoral world view a bigot. But you misunderstood my statement. I understand that white and black people marry each other sometimes and have children. I am not necessarily opposed to that. However, they would not have one clearly white and one clearly black child at the same time. Their children are usually kind of brown.

    The comic strip clearly shows a very white child and a black child in the womb at the same time (granted the womb looks like a rocket ship, but that still doesn’t explain it). The only way I can conceive of this happening is if a white woman got pregnant by a white man and a black man in the same month. I don’t know if this is even possible, but it is clearly immoral. That’s all I was trying to say.

    I find Faithmouse one of the most biting and witty Christian cartoonist out there. His depictions of Darwinists as murderous weasels is right on target along with his bitter she-shrew feminists thought-policewomen and delightful teddy-bear US soldiers over their helping the Iraqis become a Christian democracy. I have several of his hilarious cartoons up on my refrigerator (for those of you who say I have no sense of humor).

    My you are a bigot. Not only against race, but creed as well.

    God help your children if you have any. They are being raised in a house of immoral hatred. The seeds of hatred will bloom into a tree of despair and agony.

    Hellboy, you are grossly misinformed and completely devoid of practical reality and conceptual reason.

    Iraq was turned into an even more radical Islamic state controlled by Iran because of Heckuvajob Georgie’s Mission Accomplished failure.

    Drinkkking from the KKKoolade again huh?

  9. Frankly, I enjoy both XKCD’s delightful wordplay, and Umbert’s pro-life policy. Thanks for giving me the URL–now I can add it to my list of webcomics I have read in my LJ. ^.^

  10. Also: I know you hate furries, but Jack (www.pholph.com) has a delightful arc at the beginning called “Fnar The Unborn” which demonstrates the cartoonist’s firm belief that the unborn have every bit as much right to live as their parents. (Amen!) However, I would recommend that children not visit the site, as it contains graphic depictions of Hell and what kind of people end up there. (For the same reason, however, it is an excellent “morality play” for teens and adults.)

    You know, I just recently came across that internet publication, and read through quite a few of them. I enjoyed it, and the way that it portrayed the subject matter.
    There are actually some very good and family friendly furry comics out there. Just some of them have run their course.

  12. I suspect it was my cartoon of Neverborn relieving himself on Senator Brownback in response to his weasel-vote on the immigration cloture bill (in addition to my current Umbert parody cartoon in progress) which earned your less than stellar endorsement. My anthropomorphic cartoon appears on no furry sites or forums; nor am I aware of a single faithmouse furry fan.

    Thanks BJ for posting faithmouse to your fridge. I would be flattered to know which.

  14. Not at all, Dan. I didn’t know about your Brownback toon. It’s just that the first of your interesting strip I saw was of “Taint” looking at her naked fanny in the mirror. It’s a strange world where your strip occurs and might be a little frightening for young ones.

    You are a fine artist and I’m glad you stopped by to respond. Maybe I can make it up to you by looking more into your work and giving a more honest assessment in an upcoming post.

    I can understand why the “amnesty” cloture vote would be disappointing to you, and you are entitled to your own opinion. I suspect that on the issues, by and large, we are on the same side.

    I did like the “God loves you this much” image I saw on your website. I’d actually like to include that on our website. We’ll be in touch.

  16. I’m having a difficult time reading the comments of intelligent adults trying to analyze a comic strip.If you had read the “Star Wombs” series of Umbert cartoons from the beginning, you would know that FIRST, Umbert is imagining the adventure in outer space, and SECOND, that within Umbert’s fantasy, his friend Elwood joins him in his quest through a 3-D holographic projector that Elwood invented (Elwood’s parents are MIT professors). At no time is it suggested that the two characters are in the same womb at the same time. It’s a fantasy about unborn children doing battle with evil, represented by Zarth Nadir.
    Please, before you jump to conclusions and judge something, you should really examine the whole picture and not just a snippet. Thanks to all for your interest in my work.

  17. Secondly, I don’t want my children viewing a comic strip showing a white and black child together in the womb.

    Sieg Heil. I hope you keep your children from the unclean, too. Anyone who isn’t white is dirty and nasty. Jesus was clearly pale white. That’s why he was born in a geographical area where adaptation led to tan-to-dark skin.

    I’m having a difficult time reading the comments of intelligent adults trying to analyze a comic strip.

    No offense, Mr. Cangemi, but that’s because the staff at this site have the intelligence of afterbirth.

    Another comic that might have been included on the list of Best Comic Strips would be the pro-life Faithmouse by Dan Lacey. It’s a little odd, but it might appeal to furries.

    Whoa now, suddenly backing away from Faithmouse because you finally realize all the Furry jokes we cracked were true?
