Don’t corrupt Seuss

Joanna Sullivan | Tuesday, September 18, 2012

Dear ND Right to Life Club,

I have kept silent about this for too long (and by “kept silent,” I mean “verbally accosted random individuals I see wearing it”). Are you aware that Dr. Seuss’s widow has taken legal action to ask pro-life groups such as yourselves to refrain from using “A person’s a person, no matter how small,” on its anti-abortion paraphernalia? I’m anti-abortion, too, but I’m pro-Seuss and anti-hijacking-words-from-a-children’s-book-to-fit-a-political-agenda. Please keep this in mind while designing apparel for this year.

Also, while you are at it, please consider changing your name to something like “Fetus Fan Club,” because there are plenty of other life issues that deserve attention, too.
