New York, NY (LifeNews.com) -- A sculpture of pop icon Britney Spears is causing a firestorm of controversy as the designer says it sends a pro-life message promoting motherhood.

Abortion advocates are troubled by the statute and pro-life supporters aren't sure they want an image of a lewd public figure representing their cause.

Connecticut artisan Daniel Edwards called his work am "image of birth" and says it is a "new take" on the pro-life perspective.

"Pro-lifers normally promote bloody images of abortion," he told AP of his work. "This is the image of birth."


Whether or not it was the sculptor's intention, the birth is portrayed as a homebirth as there would be no bear skin rug in any hospital.
