Lose the text, it only detracts. Kill it and it's sold.

Love it, but really, do not put it on a white/off-white shirt. It'd be a tragedy.

Very nice, but I agree that the placement is a little off.

It's a good idea but I think the execution is slightly lacking. There's too much to read to understand the shirt, and for a shirt that is intended to communicate an important message you want people to both be interested and understand quickly what it is you are trying to say.
That you have to have a before and after illustration is probably the biggest weakness. There is a logo for a bereaved parents organization that uses an obviously similar theme ( http://www.runnerschoice.on.ca/races/2003series/racegraphics/Bereaved%20Families%20logo.gif ) but to much greater effect.
I'm not recommending you copy or mimic that design, but I refer to it as a reference for a similar message communicated in one image without text.

I think it's missing an extra bit of impact. I'd love to see something to do with sperm, but I'm not sure how you could incorporate that. Ideally, I'd put a sperm and egg either being fertilized on the back (small beneath the neck) or arm in arm smiling, but since you're limited to one side I can't off the top of my head think of how to do that.
As for the concept, that it seems to have hit nerves with people automatically makes it that much more appealing. The truth is, that when you have sex, there's always a risk no matter what contraception you use. I know of a lot of people (I'll admit myself included), that have risked it with expired condoms, and when you beat the hive you can't be surprised if you get stung. Aside from rape victims no one can say it isn't their responsibility.
