Don't forget all the children that will never be born because of the pill or birth control devices! Think of the poor toys! It's your duty to procreate!

Where I live, the ones who have large family are majority living in poverty. Who do you think will be the first to give these children those toys, you? I don't think so.

I'd like to put what 'from the frozen north' wrote on a billboard.

In fact, put it on billboards in front of every fundamentalist church in America. Also congress.

Some toys aren't for children:



...but they are great for pets!:



>:D

As for your so-called 'appeal to emotion', I have for you just three words:

Roe versus Wade.

Deal with it.

If you had an actual argument against abortions you wouldn't resort to rhetorical tactics like an appeal to emotion.

"America: Where your right to life ends at birth"

What would you bet, that the Niagara Region Right To Life supports the death penalty? And backs the 2nd Amendment in the US?

So no contradiction or hypocrisy there, nosiree! [/sarcasm]

Eh, this is just a poster. They have a right to put it up. At least there are no pictures of aborted fetuses stillbirths on it...

And let's not forget the millions fewer children we have because of condoms and birth control pills. Gee, just think: we could have a billion more people on the planet and have 30% unemployment and pay $8 a gallon for gas.

BTW, people who have abortions often can't afford toys (medical care, food, ...) for another child anyway.

I've got family in the Niagara region. It's basically Canada's bible belt. :.(

Also, as Canada has a population of about 30 million 100,000 abortions per year seems very high to me.

That's... tame. I don't think a mere appeal to emotion is nearly fundie enough to qualify to this site's high standards.

Not all those children would have lived to play with toys. These kinds of 'Pro-life' people always seem to assume those babies would have been born happy and healthy. Most of them have been found to have dangerous or fatal genetic or developmental disorders. Tell a mother who's just found out her baby will be born without a skull, spine, lungs, intestines, or some other vitally important organ and that it will die anywhere from instantly after you cut the cord up to a mere year after and see what that does to them.

My friend is caring for a terminally ill baby because she didn't do a genetic screening to find out he had a fatal lung disorder on top of a slew of other problems. She is basically waiting on another miscarriage, only this time she has to look him in the face as he slowly suffocates in his crib. And it's breaking up her life as we speak.

I dare you tell me that choosing before hand to abort the baby and saving him and indeed her family this torture would have been something even more terrible than what they live with now.

And the toy soldier/gun industry cries. Won't somebody please think of the pretend armies? What about all the little boys who won't want to grow up to die for my oil?

@ breakerslion
A toy soldier with a toy gun on a "Right to Life" billboard. Interesting choice....

You can cry all you want, toy. But I'm not going to buy any of my children a redcoat soldier, because I'm an asshole and I prefer Lego, for my own amusement.

"You can cry all you want, toy. But I'm not going to buy any of my children a redcoat soldier, because I'm an asshole and I prefer Lego, for my own amusement."

Especially when - with Lego - you can create something as mind (& imagination)-expanding as this:



'Chevron Seven locked in place...'

A mere 'toy soldier' (and to reiterate Philbert McAdamia's point, very interesting indeed) can't possibly compete with a construction toy that can be formed into a Stargate (with rotating motorised symbol ring, and even light-up Chevrons, no less). Unless said 'toy soldiers' are those made by Britains, or even Games Workshop's Warhammer Fantasy/Warhammer 40K figures for their wargames/TTGs; all of which stimulate and expand a child's imagination, yours, Niagara Region Right To Life, is (no pun intended) child's play.

And, like your original agenda (re. abortion), it's old and busted. It has no right to see the light of day ever again. New thinking is the new hotness. Abortion is legal in Canada. As it has been in the US since 1973 (Roe vs. Wade). And has been here in the UK since 1967.

Deal with it.

...'cause the truth has nothing at all to do with abortion.

"Some toys will have fewer children to play with this year, since perfect supply-side efficiency is impossible in an economy with monopolistic competition, but that is the price we pay for consumer choice and freedom from economic fascism."

And, either way, it still just doesn't hit home quite as hard as ridiculous appeals to emotion.

"Toys are crying inconsolably because OMG ABORTION."

Really? Is that it? An political ad?
There is not the slightest thing fundamental about this. You are free to voice your opinion.
If this ad is "fundie", than pro choice ads should be fundie as well. And ive seen some of those too.

Stop being upset about a group voicing another opinion, it makes fstdt seem hypocritical.

Toys are inanimate objects. They have no consciousness, and are therefore unaware of their own existance or the existence of anything else.

Unless they become possessed by an obake spirit. Or have been in existence for more than 100 years, in which case they become tsukumogami.

Then they become conscious.

These fundie weirdos had better not read/watch the manga (by PEACH-PIT)/anime "Rozen Maiden", if they know what's good for them.

Then we can donate those toys to the millions of impoverished children in other parts of the world.

Allegory for Jesus

Nooo, not the toys feeling lonely! Anything but the toys!

Well, kind of funny: ascribing the complexity of human sentience to toys is pretty much the same thing they do to the fetuses that they call "children". Perhaps the Fetus Rights Groups are closet animists?

Those Miscenegated Mulattos™ ain't REAL children. /fundie logic

There are way more than 100,000 children who have no toys to play with. How about sending some of those toys to them?
