If you drive along Springfield Road today, you may notice a swath of blue and pink flags along the side of the road.This amused me. I googled and found that underground fetus flags can be had for as little as 29¢ each, which means that the Dominionist astroturf gang, We Need a Law, deems each tragically lost blob of tissue to be worth 2.9¢ as a publicity stunt.
The 10,000 flags are a silent protest by the Kelowna Right to Life Society, to ask for an abortion law in Canada.
Each one of the pink and blue flags is meant to represent 10 unborn children, matching the group's estimate of 100,000 abortions each year in Canada.
Because, really, fluorescent pink and blue plastic underground gasline markers are just so evocative of abortion, aren't they?
A spokesperson eloquently explains the subtle symbolism of it all.
“We are doing this to show to our community just how massive the numbers [though we were too cheap to show the much larger number we pulled out of our asses] really are,” says event organizer Marietta Egan.
“Although our political leaders claim that abortion should be safe, legal and rare, these flags show that it is happening an astonishing 100,000 times every year in Canada.”
(Fetus freaks really need to work on assembling words in an order that resembles logic. Actually, all those flags show is that a bunch of people in Kelowna really need a hobby.)
On Twitter, I asked what this image makes people think of.
And soon we got a winner!
So, all is not
Or, who knows what might happen, eh?
