So... some of my friends and I were talking about the possibility of Scalia as the new cheif justice of the supreme(ly conservative) court and my only response was:
I may as well cut out my womb and leave it on the steps of the supreme court.

Well.
Naturally it was pointed out to me that such a surgical option is unnecessary when knitty provides such a lovely and realistic knitted womb pattern:

SO...
The annual Roe V. Wade day is fast approaching and I was wondering if my fellow knitters would like to knit a womb.  I live in DC, and I'm sure other SnB'ers from DC would join in the fun of dumping wombs on the court steps.  I work in PR, and I could even wrestle up some media coverage if we want.

Anyone interested, or am I insane?

I think that's awesome! One thought, though: with how long knitting takes, the final womb count (hee!) might be a little on the low side. Could we work in other, additional media?

Updates!
We've pushed it back to a March 1 deadline, and a March 15ish action.  We're setting up a PO box to mail 'em to, but we're going to do this, so go ahead and cast on!

There's also a LiveJournal community being set up right now: knit4choice

Once we're finalized, I'll get addresses and all up.

Oooh, I might pass this along to my fellow crafty social work students...  I was so in awe of the reproductive rights march in washington earlier this year, such an amazing even to be a part of.

keep us posted with info!

Count me in!!  I was going to make a couple already for myself and my best friend, but the pattern says one skein makes 3.  I was wondering what to do with that 3rd womb...What a brilliant idea!
