Hmmmm. Interesting timing. One woulda thunk this bunfest would be coordinated with the fetus fetishists' other fall fun fair, Life Chain, on October 2.
I've looked and can't find any info on whether this shindig is the first ever, tenth annual, or whatever. No qualifier of any sort. And usually the fetus fetishists love to highlight how long they've been holding their futile rallies and vigils and whatnot.
I wonder who they expected to be in the Premier's seat on October 22, you know, two weeks after the provincial election that at one point seemed a no-brainer win for the Cons.
Were they hoping for compulsive 'refuser to say' Tim Hudak who once mighta, kinda, maybe vowed to defund abortion?
Given his repeated flip-flopping on issues, maybe they were hoping the sight of a few dozen zygote zealots on 'his' new lawn at Queen's Park would flop-flip him back again.
Because currently Campaign Life Coalition's handy candidate rater has him down as 'pro-abortion'.
Ouch. That's gotta smart what with all the pandering to Christianists he's been doing.
(Interestingly, the fetus fetishists seem slow off the mark with their quiz. While many candidates have 'not replied' and many more [like Hudork, big surprise] have 'refused to answer', lots haven't yet been sent the survey.)
We've blogged about abortion funding being the potential wedge issue in the never-ending War on Women. Obviously, the fetus fetishists think they have a winner here.
Here's what the text on that poster says, including the mandatory breast-cancer and trauma lies:
At least 30 million dollars of taxpayer money funds elective abortion surgery in Ontario alone
*Additionally, the cost of abortion complications could escalate this cost of hundreds of millions of $ annually (Eg: breast cancer, trauma, infections)
But hey, it may not be too late to try to cash in those martyr markers, Tim. Canadian Life Chain locations are here. Pick a spot, hold up gory sign, and bingo! You're back in their good graces.
1. What's with the blobs? Everyone knows that 'blobs'® are prochoice symbols. They're appropriating our shit again. Waaa!
2. What's with the logo? Is that a heart with toesies? Eww. Creepy.
