They had Big Plans (bold in original).
After crossing the country to Toronto, the New Abortion Caravan will end in Ottawa, where politicians and the public will be forced to face the shattered bodies of Canadian children they have failed so badly.That's a lotta 'forcing', innit?
It will be a Canada Day to remember.
Not all Canadians are recognized as the intrinsically valuable human beings that they are. We cannot—we will not—rest until the pre-born are acknowledged as having the same right to life as the born. Using historical precedent while exposing an undeniable injustice, the Canadian Centre for Bio-Ethical Reform's New Abortion Caravan will save lives.
It will force Canadians to reconsider the value of the pre-born child, launching abortion into the media while rallying and uniting the pro-life faithful.
We will EndtheKilling, and we will end it in our lifetime.
Here's a press release.
The group's schedule is as follows:But LifeShite reports:
Saturday, June 30, 2pm: Special delivery to 24 Sussex Drive
Sunday, July 1, 11am-5pm: Abortion signs in front of Parliament Hill
Monday, July 2, 7:30pm: Public presentation, Greenbelt Baptist Church, 839 Shefford Rd, Ottawa
On Sunday July 1, the group of 25 activists, with an average age of 24, were demonstrating with their large graphic signs near Parliament Hill. Thereafter they hand-delivered postcards bearing graphic images directly to homes across the city. The city’s highways were also treated to the images courtesy of the group’s roaming truck.Not 'in front of' Parliament Hill. 'Near' Parliament Hill. OK, then.
Mrozek and Dr Dawg attended the evening church event. Mrozek's bit has more about the protesters than the Gore Tour and Dr Dawg confirms that the Fetusmobile did NOT make an appearance at the finale.
So where is the truck? (And was there only one? Some 'caravan'.) Where's the crowing about success? Where's the forcing now, hmmm?
On Twitter, JJ asked about the truck and, being something of a backyard mechanic, offered to have a look at it if it had broken down.
But we think she's got it right with this.
What happened to the #fetusmobiles? Maybe they didn't break down - maybe they're being stripped of all the ugly for the long drive home— JJ (@jjhippie) July 3, 2012
Yep. It'll be a long trip back to Hicksville.
Just like Woodworth's Wank (M312), this genius notion was a MASSIVE waste of time and money.
Added by deBeauxOs. I follow @vickyatclc who tweeted live from the event; she posted some great photos, such as this one.
I walked around the downtown core, near the Byward Market on July 1st and I didn't see the Whingebago. Very few families groups heading for the Hill. Perhaps word got out about the graphic images being forced on the public, and people not being allowed onto our Parliament grounds by Harper's security goons.
