Reproductive rights news from the Great White NorthLenami5/10/14 12:35amFiled to: pro-choice79EditPromoteShare to KinjaGo to permalinkWell, Canada's religious right proves once again that, despite many of its members not believing in evolution, it is still full of cranky old dinosaurs who hate reproductive rights.AdvertisementThursday was Ottawa's annual assclown parade, the March for Life. Every year, several thousand anti-choice protestors descend on the capital to protest women's reproductive freedoms. Their numbers are bolstered by children from publicly funded Catholic schools, as well as private schools from all over Ontario, who are bused in on field trips to the capital. Not just high school students either – I got to watch a full two classes of sixth graders assemble before me and talk excitedly about the candy and souvenirs they'd bought while wearing March 4 Life bracelets. Sixth graders! Let that sink in.I don't think it's a stretch to say that Canada's anti-choice groups, headed by tax-exempt churches and bolstered by publicly funded schools, see nothing wrong with exploiting children to push their agenda. Ask one of these jokers what concrete actions they're taking to support women and children in Canada and make abortion less necessary, and look into the terrible abyss of blank stares if you dare. Oh, and they're also not down with same-sex marriage. Or "marriage" (with scare quotes), as their website terms it.ShareTweet Kinja is in read-only mode. We are working to restore service.
