It may look like someone's idea of a sick joke -- but this sticker was in fact created in earnest as part of a larger campaign to stop women from abandoning their newborns.

The stickers were created in Orosi, California, after three babies -- all genetically tied to the same mother -- were dumped in the same neighborhood over the course of a few years. When the last of the newborns died, officials were willing to try anything to stop it from happening again.

I'm not sure what's worse -- a mother who abandons her helpless infant, or one who makes her decision about whether or not to do so based on a bumper sticker.
