As this Umbert strip illustrates, the logic of the environmentalist movement is often used by Umbert to defend the unborn. In one series of strips, Umbert tried to have the womb declared a federally protected wetland. In other strips, Umbert tried to enlist the sympathy of the environmental left by disguising himself as a baby harp seal, a tree, a bear, and a spotted owl, since the Supreme Court declared open season on unborn baby humans. It's only fair. The Left uses pro-life arguments to defend animal and plant life all the time. It's merely a question of priorities I suppose. We place human life at the top of the list and they place it at the bottom, somewhere between the boll weevil and the West Nile virus. Personally, as much as I love nature and animals, I find it difficult to swallow the appeals of PETA and their cohorts when many of these same people think the slaughter of human infants in their mother's wombs is a woman's inviolable right. Abortionists are brutally murdering viable late term babies and they want me to worry about a duck not having a big enough swamp to splash around in? Give me a break!
Can you imagine the reaction from the left if someone were to suggest controlling deer populations by catching the pregnant females and aborting their fawns? I guarantee you a conniption fit deluxe! Rest assured Umbert will continue to hoist these tree huggers with their own petards.
