Woody's New Wank



SHOCKING NEWS! Pro-choice group refuses to sign on to latest anti-abortion stalking horse gambit!

Woody's got a brand-new wank. And guess what? It's just like the old wank.

Woodworth said he reached out to Joyce Arthur, the executive director of the Abortion Rights Coalition of Canada, for support on the motion. The group is a prominent national pro-choice organization.

Woodworth said he wrote to the group in January with the specific wording of the motion: “That the Parliament of Canada declare that the equal worth and dignity of everyone must be recognized by Canadian law based on their inherent nature as a human being.”

He said Arthur wrote back the next day, and that he then responded and then received no further response from ARCC.

Arthur said she and her group declined Woodworth’s request because they felt it would lead to giving rights to a fetus, which would have dangerous consequences for pregnant mothers.

“He doesn’t seem to recognize that at all,” said Arthur. “When I bring up women’s rights over and over again, he thinks it’s some sort of sideshow. He doesn’t really get the issue, so what’s the point of talking about it with him?”

Woodworth said in a media release that he has "regretfully concluded" the ARCC "simply refuses to affirm human equality."

"We think the ulterior motive is that he's trying to include fetuses in the definition of 'everyone,'" Arthur said.

Ayup. Seems so.

We don't need to woman the barricades just yet. After the trouncing #M312 took last fall, he may have difficulty finding another kamikazi MP to co-sponsor this latest piece of bullshit.

Also, he'll have to wait until the next federal election, by which time if the good people of Kitchener Centre come to their senses, Woody will be wanking all on his lonely.

If you've got ten minutes to waste, listen to this radio interview, in which Woody seems genuinely surprised that ARCC didn't leap at the chance to join in fucking over Canadian women.

Is he really that much of a moran? Who the hell did he think was behind the campaign to Crush Motion 312?

ADDED BONUS: Seems Woody has memory-holed his genius analogy about abortion and ballooning. Pity that. But I found a thorough and fun fisking of it that really captures the lunacy.

Honestly, he "reached" out to the ARCC just so he could conclude that the big bad pro-choice folks didn't want to be work with him and thus, hastily conclude we were against equality.

Not so fast, Woody. You can't claim to be for equal rights and in the same breath deny women the right to manage their own body, make private medical decisions and patronizingly tell them what to do, bullying them around.

But prochoice folks are not fooled. Woody and Warawa, for example, don't care about equality. WEhat they're after is control and imposing their own views on women's bodies. We won't let them.

Don't his constituents have other issues that they would like him to work on?

Correct me if I'm wrong on this, but Stephen Woodworth is, in fact, Catholic. By definition, this raises questions about the depth of Woody's commitment to the gender equality he now talks so much about. In the spirit of ridiculous and self-serving "reach-outs," I propose a compromise: I will agree that sex-selective abortions are a reflection of a sexist culture if he denounces the misogynist bigotry of the Catholic Church.

Yes, indeedy, Sixth. Not only is Woody a Catholic, he's a fooking Knight of Columbus.

Good luck with that compromise.
