Yesterday on Twitter, a few pundits (Kady O'Malley for one) deigned to admonish us pro-choicers as alarmist, over-reacting, yadayada. We were told to consult the numbers. This motion will never pass, they said. Don't worry your purty little heads.
Well, as of this writing, 4,500 Canadians (mostly) are pretty fucking alarmed that the abortion debate is being reopened.
Feminist bloggers have been on it for months. Alison at Creekside here and here. JJ the Unrepentent here and here.
And of course, DAMMIT JANET! passim and ad nauseum.
Yes, yes. We are fully aware of other horrible things Harpolini and gang are doing to Canada and do not propose taking our collective progressive eye off any of those
But could we get a little help here?
Particularly from male progressive bloggers who might like to alert their readers to this aspect of The Hidden Agenda® that is decloaking at the moment?
If you're really really busy on More Important Matters, maybe you could help out with a tweet directing people to this petition.
OOPS! Forgot Dave at The Galloping Beaver. Thanks, Dave.
Sunday UPDATE: Kev at Trappped in a Whirlpool speaks up. Thanks, Kev. And Anti-Choice Is Anti-Awesome.
