You stay classy, Toronto Star!

Well this is Special: Canada’s major progressive-leaning newspaper, known affectionately to conservatives as The Red Star, is running an online article with a direct link to the “Canadian Centre for Bioethical Reform”.

For the happily uninitiated, CCBR is (cached link, fetus pron warning) the leading Canadian purveyor of fetus pron. Indeed they is: they put it on posters to be waved on streetcorners and cause 10-car pile-ups as passing motorists reach for the barf bags, they make bigass grotesque public displays of it where they compare it to the Holocaust (never any mention of the Tubesock Holocaust, though), they festoon it all over their Fetusmobiles©, and of course their website is crawling with it.

For brain-damaged halfwits who respond “Well, if abortion’s such a great thing, why shouldn’t people see it?”, look pal, most normal people don’t especially want to see the gory tray of leftovers from open-heart surgery either.  Or knee surgery or a hip replacement or any other medical procedure including the lobotomy that was clearly had by whoever at the Star was responsible for this article.  The icing on this foul and feculent cake is that this particular imagery is displayed for the express purpose of restricting womens’ rights… not a compelling reason to remove it from the public sphere, but maybe something the *cough*progressive*cough* Star might want to consider when deciding whether to link to it (or not).

AND (heh, I’m on a roll) before some addlepated dingbat starts jabbering about “Free Speech”, this isn’t a free speech issue.  I have in the past defended the right of anti-abortion students at the University of Calgary to exhibit the CCRB’s gross images as part of their demented, ignorant, in-your-face display.  PETA does the same thing with doctored images of seals: if it’s okay for them, it’s okay for the fetus fetishists.

No, it’s about propagandizing, which is all that the CCRB website does, and the fact that it’s bad form for the progressive media to assist the propagandists by sending a shitload of traffic their way.

Geeeeeeeez Star, ya THINK!??

    Hell, I got squeamish looking at the planter’s wart the doctor cut out of my foot.

    Shame to see any link to that site in The Star.

    ahhhh, but in describing the “hordes of fresh-faced young people” attending the pro life march, the money quote is there:
    But since those institutions orchestrate pro-life events, she remains skeptical about motivation. Catholic schools send classes on field trips to the March for Life, so of course young people are there, she said.

    Indeed, when asked why he was attending a recent pro-life student conference in Toronto, 17-year-old high-school student John shrugged and said “it’s mandatory.”
