(Disturbing image below.) Like most people in Hollywood, actor Jim Carrey is religiously pro-choice, and on Saturday he expressed his faith in the form of an illustration, and a Tweet in which he pined for the "termination" of pregnancies before the children can grow up to become humans who don't share his exact beliefs.
You know, "kill the heretics." It's an old song.
Carrey put the lyrics to graphic use, though, in a drawing that he included with his tweet regarding the new anti-abortion law in Alabama that has set off a firestorm of controversy. Ivey signed the bill, of course, and that is what prompted Carrey's orthodox instinct to purge the wicked.

There were many appropriate responses to Carrey, but perhaps this was the most concisely devastating:
We leave you with a few more, for your consideration and sharing.
Another incredibly ugly moment in modern America.
