Have you seen them yet? If you happen to be in one of Operation Rescue’s designated “Battleground States,” All that I can say is “Lucky You!” Of course, I’m being facetious. You see, the religious right and the hard-line pro-lifers are hell-bent (pun intended) on getting out the pro-life vote this November, and they are starting with you!
Beginning today, they will launch their mobile billboard campaign sending forth into your towns, fleets of trucks with huge pictures of mutilated babies to beautify your neighborhoods. Good luck trying to explain to your children why these babies have been dismembered!
Created Equal and Operation Rescue are calling this a “voter education strategy.” Gee, I’m all about informed voters marking the right boxes, but this macabre attempt at getting out the vote, is just a little over the top for me. Of course, Randall Terry did succeed in airing televised commercials in such graphic detail in his bid for the Democratic Presidential nomination a few months back.
Now, Mark Harrington, Executive Director of Created Equal says, “America is at a crossroads. We have been killing children in the womb for almost forty years. On November 6, 2012, America will either choose life or death. Our billboards permit the victims of abortion to speak for themselves. If the photographic evidence of the injustice of abortion doesn’t activate the pro-life vote, nothing will.”
According to GodDiscussion.com:
Harrington has been a supporter of the so-called “Heartbeat Bill” introduced in Ohio by Janet Porter of Faith2Action, who had previously lost her radio networks due to her controversial Christian dominionist leanings. Porter’s bill, which would have banned abortion in most cases, was not introduced in the GOP-dominated Senate. As Right Wing Watch reports, Republican Senate President criticized Faith2Action for making “exaggerated and inflammatory statements” in connection with its campaign to ban abortion once a heartbeat was detected in a fetus.
between the Personhood Bill, the Heartbeat Bill, the proposed invasion of our vaginas, denial of birth control, etc., the War on Women continues to be waged by the zealots on the religious right. paranoia of losing their white privilege and fear of women being treated equal rather than subservient has rendered these Biblical Bullies absolutel
y insane. The problem is, this insanity seems to be contagious and as long as they continue to succeed in getting the masses to drink their
, they will continue to make inroads into every facet of our lives.
I, for one, strongly object to having my children and myself subjected to the atrocities that these people belive will change hearts and minds and put them behing the wheel to guide this country into the abyss of a Theocracy.
