40-SHRIEEEK!-years

close-up-of-champagne-cork-pop-thumb3806467As pro-choicers lift a glass to the 40 years since the passing of Trudeau’s “Omnibus Bill” that decriminalized abortion (and homosexuality) and prompted PET to famously declare that the state hashrieeeeeeeeeeek copyd no business in the bedrooms of the nation, a storm is gathering over Ottawa.

It’s that time of year again, when the local forecast predicts it’ll be raining fetus fetishists (accompanied by intermittent shrieks) as forced-pregnancy punishment freaks don their water-repellent hair shirts and storm the capital in the name of  freedom, faith and family… because nothing says “freedom” like “All your uterus are belong to us”.Untitled-2 copy

But so what?  Same thing every year.  But this year might be a little different because they’ve been working themselves into a Jesus-driven frenzy over the biblical implications of the “40 years” (their theme this year is “EXODUS”, no religiosity  there, nope) so who knows?   It might get exciting for a change.  Care to make it interesting?   Let’s throw out some predictions and gamble like the heathens we are:

1.  Numbers:  Usually these little shindigs draw anywhere from 3500-7000 frothing, foaming fetus fetishists (depending on what report you read/believe).  But since they’ve been going batshit over this one (40 years!) for months, I’ll go out on a limb here and predict that it’ll be BIG, the BIGGEST EVER, at… 8500.  Oh okay, 9000.

2.  Demographics:  Overwhelmingly young, since there’ll be thousands of kids  bussed in from Catholic schools following the carrot of a free credit and a day off (subsidized by Ontarian tax dollars).  Fetus fetishists will declare this as meaning the End Of Abortion since all these Good Catholic Kids will obviously abstain from illicit sexual congress, but as usual, the facts indicate otherwise.

3.  Canada Wordmark:  Ignoring the C&D order from the government, they’ll go right ahead and use the odious banner with the wordmark… again.

4.  No cops will be injured this year, but a few people will once again be delayed from getting a loved one to their radiation treatment.  (Loved one not a fetus = so what.)

5.  Ottawa traffic will be tangled and snarled for hours, but nobody will bitch about it because most of these people are the right colour.

6.  Anti-choice bloggers and commentators will whine that the “pro-abort media” is ignoring them.

Feel free to roll the dice with some of your own predictions… there’s a glass of champers with my name on it that needs urgent attention (hey, it’s 5pm somewhere).

    You’ll be happy to know, its pouring rain here. With a little luck some of the zealots will be struck by lightening….

    BWAHAHAHAHA! The weather gods are pro-choice…

    “That time of year” again?

    These assholes have a season???7???

  4. 4 JJ Thursday, May 14, 2009 at 10:36 am

    The season of the bitch.

  5. 5 Mike Thursday, May 14, 2009 at 11:35 am

    Chimera – near the end of the school year, when its warm enough to let the little Catholic kids out of class for a day when it won’t be too cold and when its too late for them to miss anything at school that will cause them to flunk.

  6. 6 deBeauxOs Thursday, May 14, 2009 at 12:06 pm

    It never dawns on the zygote zealots that many of the drivers loudly honking at them as their hordes of uniform-clad students invade the streets of Ottawa are perverts, excited by the presence of so many Catholic school girls, and not fellow religious fanatics.

  7. 7 mouthyorange Thursday, May 14, 2009 at 12:57 pm

    Maybe more than 9000? Depends how many they bus in from the States.

  8. 8 Rob F Thursday, May 14, 2009 at 6:34 pm

    Don’t these people have anything better to do than try and create more Yvonne Jurewicz’s?

  9. 9 JJ Thursday, May 14, 2009 at 6:59 pm

    BOOM! Breaking!

    10,000 fetus fetishists converged on Parliament Hill today… say “abortion is Going Down!”… just like they said last year… and the year before…

    Good showing but probably a lot less than they were hoping for, given the 40-year anniversary, the Morgentaler award last year, and other recent events that show the tide of public opinion isn’t favouring them (ie. Obama winning the US election).

    What interested me was the 18 MPs that showed up there — they’re doubtlessly part of the “Pro-Life Caucus”. Didn’t catch all their names, but some of them we already know (Rod Bruinooge and Paul Szabo LIBERAL TURNCOAT) and others we weren’t sure of (Dan McTeague LIBERAL TURNCOAT, Guy Lauzon, Jeff Watson and Dean del Maestro, conservatives).

    If anyone finds any more info on who the rest of the MPs were that went to this thing, I’d be interested… I’ve been trying to out this pro-life caucus for months.

    Good morrow, all!
    Would someone, anyone, explain to me, please, where good Christian parents, who are bound by duty to spend all non-working and non-sleeping hours in nurturing healthy relationships with God, their family and their friends, find the shagging time to blow on protests of this nature?
    Seriously, while your marriage is young, while your kids are young, any time you take away from them for any reason better be for their benefit — and protesting the Godlessness of Canadian society is NOT for their benefit. That protesting does not make you a better Christian, a better spouse or a better friend to anyone. Therefore, it robs you and them of important quality time. That, my dear Christian friends, is what I would call a sin. And we all now where sinners wind up, don’t we?

    Don’t these people have anything better to do than try and create more Yvonne Jurewicz’s?

    That’s exactly what they want. As far as they’re concerned, women who have the audacity to have sex for any reason other than procreation should be punished. If that means they have to die, tough.

    Seriously — one only needs to recall the story of the little 9-year-old rape victim in Brazil to know where these peoples’ heads are at. They would have forced her to carry the pregnancy til her womb literally exploded.

    Thankfully, public opinion is not in their favour.

  12. 12 JJ Thursday, May 14, 2009 at 7:34 pm

    Cornelius – As far as they’re concerned, this kind of protest is sort of like going to church. They think they’re doing the Lord’s work in shining a light on “the plight of the unborn” (although how an undeveloped potential human can be said to be in any kind of “plight” remains to be seen).

    To understand why they do this, you have to look at it from their perspective: to them, an embryo (even a fertilized egg, for gawd’s sake) has the same standing as you or me or any fully-developed walking-around air-breathing human being. So to them it’s like a mass murder is being committed. Of course this is ridiculous and wrong, and primarily based in theology (you can’t believe a fertilized egg is equal to a human being unless you believe in “ensoulment” at conception). But that’s how they think, and why they consider such protests a spiritual calling.

    And of course, they’re all certified fascist punishment freaks who really don’t like women much to start with, and definitely don’t like it when we refuse to be state-run incubators cranking out little soldiers for their Jesus Camp armies.

    Good morrow, JJ!
    I find it most passing strange that “Christians” ignore what Jesus said about displaying one’s religion in public.
    Check out Matthew 6, 1-18. The Main Dude lays it all out for his peeps. Today’s “Christians” are Pharisees, and if you even so much as glance through the Gospels, you will ascertain how highly the Son regarded such upright folks.

    10,000? Over 9,000. I win.

    Hey, when I just read over your post for this topic, JJ, I read, “their theme for this year is EXPLODUS”. Blame it on 5:30 a.m. grogginess.

  15. 15 Reality Bites Friday, May 15, 2009 at 2:37 am

    Whose estimate is the 10,000 people?

  16. 16 mouthyorange Friday, May 15, 2009 at 4:47 am

    RB, are you disputing my win? ;)

  17. 17 Rev Dave Friday, May 15, 2009 at 6:22 am

    An update on the wordmark —

    Looks like they dropped the wordmark this year, finally. From waht I see, the French sign had “nationale” with the little Canadian flag logo above the “e,” but they did get rid of the Canada-with-flag logo which we were objecting to before.

  18. 18 JJ Friday, May 15, 2009 at 6:23 am

    RB – MouthyO won — according to Lifenews, it was 10,000. (Lifesite, and thus all the Canadian Fetosphere, says 12,000).

    Nonetheless, it’s good news — this is the event where they really blow their wad, so to speak. And this year, of all years, they should have been able to get out every last person who gives a shit about this issue (and all the Catholic school kids, of course). If that still only adds up to 10-12,000 people, that’s a long way from being a game-changer. (If it was in the 100s of 1000s I might be a little concerned.)

    To put it in perspective, this demo was about 1/2 the size of the number of fans at the average Leafs game.

  19. 19 JJ Friday, May 15, 2009 at 6:29 am

    Cornelius – That’s right, beauty is skin-deep but STOOPID goes all the way to the bone

  20. 20 JJ Friday, May 15, 2009 at 6:31 am

    Rev Dave – No wordmark? About time they complied with the Cease and Desist Order, the pricks.

  21. 21 RealityBites Friday, May 15, 2009 at 6:37 am

    Well as JJ’s post said, depending on whose report you believe. I took her prediction of 8500 or 9000 to be real people, not Lifesite/Lifenews people, a number which generally counts women and girls twice, because after all, you never know when there’s a human being hiding inside them.

    I myself never leave home without at least 50 million human beings.

  22. 22 fern hill Friday, May 15, 2009 at 6:40 am

    SHE posted a bunch of photos and actually said something like ‘if you’re looking for the wordmark, you won’t find it’. I call that a WIN for us, even if it took two years (at least) of our yelling about it.

  23. 23 JJ Friday, May 15, 2009 at 6:45 am

    RB – :lol: 50 million human beings :lol:

    It’ll be interesting to see what the official police crowd count is. The fetus fetishists have counters, but they are not that good at it.

    12,000: if I was an anti-choicer I’d be very discouraged today.

  24. 24 JJ Friday, May 15, 2009 at 6:51 am

    fern hill – Yeah, because I said something a couple of days ago in the comments like “Don’t be using that wordmark again! We’ll be watching!” Ha!

    It is a win, unlike this lame protest. A bunch of anti-abortion freaks having a group whine like they do every year, so what.

    Their lack of success re the Morgentaler award is far more telling than an annual protest that’s flogged for months.

  25. 25 Rev Dave Friday, May 15, 2009 at 8:11 am

    In fairness, the weather probably hurt turnout in most demographics (except for the important and influential bused-in-kid grouping, anyways).

  26. 26 JJ Friday, May 15, 2009 at 3:13 pm

    Rev Dave – No doubt. But not to the tune of the 50,000 more that it would take to impress me ;) let alone worry me (worrying would start when they exceeded 100k).

    Assuming that 20% opted out because of the weather, it’s still less than the average Canucks game. But a good showing nonetheless, for that particular issue.
