Winnipeg Free Press calls it a demonstration for "free, safe and legal abortion" and a "national day of action for 'reproductive choice'". But since that "choice" usually involves taking away a baby's life, (not to mention that abortion and reproduction don't go along quite well,) I guess the "march for death" would do just fine.
The event is organized by M.s. Citizenship Feminist Collective, which maintain that crisis pregnancy centres often misinform women about abortion. The group says it is still difficult for women outside of Winnipeg to access abortions, since only one clinic and two out of 52 hospitals in the province perform the procedure.To fully mirror our strategy of targeting abortion facilities, the pro-aborts are planning to picket the Crisis Pregnancy Center. Suzanne, the author of the Big Blue Wave blog, wonders what's the rationale behind this:
How does picketing a CPC improve abortion access?Well, the answer is simple: Pregnancy Centers are driving down abortion business. By educating women about abortions, by raising awareness of the health risks associated with abortions, by informing women about emotional consequences of abortions (and providing post-abortion counseling for those who didn't want to listen at first,) the Crisis Pregnancy Centers effectively reduce demand for abortions. And when the demand goes down - guess what happens to the supply. That's what the pro-aborts are afraid of.
And are they protesting that Crisis Pregnancy Centres disagree with their *opinions* on abortion?
You know, it makes sense for pro-lifers to picket abortion clinics because they believe that human beings are being killed.
But what interest do feminists have in foisting themselves onto Crisis Pregnancy Centres? They're upset that their ideology is being debunked and that women are using these resources rather than Planned Parenthood?
And another thing: Interestingly enough, WFP refers to the tragic anniversary as a pro-abortion day of action, but forgets to mention the National March for Life, a pro-life event which commemorates the revocation of personhood for the unborn babies. Neither does it mention the provincial March for Life in Winnipeg, that will take place on the same day as the feminist pro-abortion picket. Unless this article is a paid announcement by the picket organizers, you can see how fair, balanced and impartial our mainstream media is.
