Fetus fetishists plan to spam their provincial legislators tomorrow in a Tweet Fest urging them to #defund abortion.
They've targetted four provinces.
DAMMIT JANET! proposes a counter Tweet Fest using the hashtag #DefendAbortion.
At DJ!, we live to serve, so here are the lists of provincial pols on Twitter from PoliTwitter.
We've reported on these feeble efforts before. They've been centred in Ontario so far. Like this lame little gathering from March this year.
Sadly, this rally had been postponed from the previous fall when Hurricane Sandy pooped on their parade.
The planned rally was announced with some hoopla at Queen's Park, 'sponsored' by three MPPs, who unaccountably did not attend.
They were Rick Nicholls, John O'Toole, and Randy Hillier.
Only @RickNicholls and @RandyHillier have Twitter accounts.
I intend to concentrate my spamming efforts on those two.
Along with @timhudak, aka He Who Would Defund Abortion Until It Became Too Hot a Potato, of course.
Check out politicians on Twitter from your province and identify those who might be receptive to defund/defend messages. You can also check Campaign Lie's handy list of MPPs, MLAs, MNAs, abd MHAs to find out where they stand on abortion -- if they've bothered to answer its questionnaire. Many I checked had not.
If you need some talking points for why abortion must be fully funded, ARCC has you covered here.
Let's do this.
UPDATE: Wow. Alison in the comments points out that ALL the comments at LifeShite on this article come from Murricans blatting about ObamaCare and the US government shut-down. Now we know that fetus fetishists aren't the sharpest pencils in the box, but this is a bit much. Alison asks: Just where does the funding for the Canadian anti-abortion gang come from again?
MORE UPDATE: AntoniaZ in the comments prefers #DefendChoice. Fine by me. But in this case, it is specifically abortion they want to defund. So I'll used #DefendAbortion and add #DefendChoice if I've got characters to spare.
EVEN MORE UPDATE: Alison expands on her comment at her blog.
AND MORE UPDATE: I haven't read this yet (11-page PDF). The Evangelical Whatsits have updated a 2012 evaluation on the requirement to fund abortion by provinces. Arming themselves for tomorrow, it seems.
