Teen Girl Defends Sign Saying “Jesus Isn’t a D—, Keep Him Out of My Vagina”

During the pro-abortion protests leading up to the Texas vote on the late-term abortion ban, the Internet was shocked to see a young girl hold a sign saying “Jesus Isn’t a D—, Keep Him Out of May Vagina.”

Earlier this month, a man on Twitter accepted responsibility for the sign, saying his young daughter made it and had her friend hold it. Billy Joe Cain is an Austin resident who is a video game producer and has no problem with young girls holding vulgar signs referring to sexual parts. In fact, he said he is “proud” of her.

Now, the teen girl behind the sign is defending it.

In a blog post, the teen, Tuesday Cain, says:

I also believe in the right to choose and the separation of church and state. Or to put it another way — to put it the way I wrote it when I was protesting at the Capitol last week:

“Jesus isn’t a dick so keep him out of my vagina.”

Yes, that’s my sign.

I came up with it last week when my friend and I were trying to think of ideas for what would get people’s attention to protest the scary restrictions that are happening in my state trying to take away a woman’s right to safe and accessible abortions.

It worked.

When my friend and I took turns holding the sign, one of the pictures of her went viral.

Then my dad went online to defend the sign on Twitter and other online forums.

That’s when people started calling me a “whore.”

Tuesday goes on to complain about the name people called her and saying she has no plans to have sex, despite producing a sign that talks about sexual parts.

She also goes on to admit that one person she knows who has had abortions regrets her decision and is now pro-life. Cain hasn’t learned from that woman’s abortion experience but, instead, uses it as a reason to promote abortion.

I know someone who has had a few abortions. She now says that abortion is bad and she fights against a woman’s right to choose.

This makes it all the more important for me to protest, even if I am only 14.

Nowhere in her post does Cain admit that the bill she opposes would kill babies past the point of viability and up to the day of birth. Instead, she uses Christianity to support her position — forgetting the Biblical commandment not to kill.



Writing at National Review, Jay Nordlinger responds to the teen’s blog post:

There are a million things to say about this dear girl, and her sign, but one of them is this: What does that “vagina” business mean, exactly? I’m no anatomist, but don’t babies form in the womb? The thing is, a lot of these pro-choice folk regard abortion as a form of birth control, right?

And it is, really: No baby, no birth.

Ted Kennedy used to say that anti-abortion people were invading “our bedrooms.” I thought that was an interesting way of putting it. I have no doubt that Kennedy thought of abortion as birth control.
