Hell must have frozen over...

Today the National Post published a rational, factual "full comment" regarding Canada's status quo on abortion.

Read Jesse Kline's piece.  It's fair, correct, reasonable.

It even has a quote from Ralph Klein which, one might hope, would appease the Fetus Lobby.

Abortion — to borrow a phrase from Ralph Klein — is best left as “a matter between a woman, her doctor and her God.”
The shriEEEking: But what about the gawdless sluuuts?!?! has begun.

The knuckle-draggers have emerged in full force in the comments. These are the folks who share Jonathan Kay's view on the role of politicians in regulating women's reproductive organs; sadly their mastery of the English language is not quite as impeccable, nor their misogyny quite as discrete.

And to emphasize that point, the National Post chose a photo of a pro-Choice protester at a March for Lies on Parliament Hill that likely corresponds to the image their readers would use to illustrate the fundamentalist religious notion of a gawdless sluuut.

In response, it seems only fair to post a photo of some of the anti-Choice zealots, no?

Heh. Speaking of godless sluts... There's a medieval feast here on Tuesday. I'm dressing as a bar wench.

Did I mention that the feast is at a Catholic monastery?

Funny thing is, the monks are not the preachy fundies that these rightwing shrieeeeekers are...
