Addendum: How could we adults be so unfeeling as to grow up and no longer needing toys?
You must be very firm against the Death Penalty, NRRTF, right? Right?

Almost half a million kids in US foster care.
I'm not listening to anything that the anti-abortion crowd has to say until they adopt all those kids.

What the shit? Now they think TOYS have feelings?
Well, considering the fact that they think blastocysts feel pain...

Won't someone remember the toys?
4/27/2011 1:51:32 PM
Yeah, think of all the lonely teddy bears who won't have little playmates!

Every time I think the Religious Right can't do anything more insane or self-contradictory it manages to pull another rabbit out of the hat.
This 'animism' (for want of a better word) is the very stuff they'd decry as demonic were it in, say, Harry Potter or Pokemon.

I can’t even consider this a proper emotional appeal. I just can’t see anyone over the age of 6 seriously thinking their toy might care that there is someone to play with it. So how the hell is that supposed to really tweak anyone’s emotions?
It’s just nonsense, plain and simple.

Fallacy from imaginary life of toys?
Definitely a new one.

These idiots never stopped to examine the reasons why a woman feels she needs to have an abortion. They assume it's all casual and instant, without thought or feeling.
4/27/2011 4:09:56 PM
yes, because we know that clockwork soldiers are the universal symbol of humanity and empathy...

So Canada has imported the pro-life movement. That's a Toronto area code on there.
4/27/2011 4:45:54 PM
This is what happens when people like deadmau5 are still living in Canada or anywhere in teh world for that matter

sad part is, this poster's first line and image could have been used for something so much better. like "Finding cures for child diseases" or something like that.
I hate seeing good potential wasted.

WHY WAS THIS IN MY CITY!??!

"Really? Is that it? An political ad?
There is not the slightest thing fundamental about this."
Um. Arbiter. Read it again. They are appealing to THE EMOTIONS OF TOYS to sell their viewpoint!
"You are free to voice your opinion."
Um, what is it about this being posted on FSTDT that suggests that people aren't free to voice their opinion. This site wouldn't exist if we had to leave posts alone because people are allowed to voice their opinions.
"If this ad is "fundie", than pro choice ads should be fundie as well."
Yeah, cuz a pro-choice ad will inevitably be comparable to a crazy, toys-have-feelings pro-life ad.
"Stop being upset about a group voicing another opinion, it makes fstdt seem hypocritical."
Um, if all we were upset about was people voicing their opinions, this site would be called, "All People Everywhere Say the Darndest Things". It's FUNDIE stuff that upsets us, thus the title "Fundies Say the Darndest Things."
LEARN TO READ!

EWWWW IT'S A CANADIAN BILLBOARD!!!! ARGHABLAAAAARGHHHH!!!!
(Oh, and I love how some of the preceding comments here seem to indicate that the poster assumed this was an American billboard...)

They picket in the green space near my apartment, here in Calgary, too. Nothing like getting almost home, and seeing signs with aborted fetuses on them.
And to the picture...it's a pity those mothers forced to carry their children can't afford those toys, having to choose between toys, and trivial luxuries, like shelter, or eating.
4/27/2011 6:38:45 PM
Uh huh. This is similar to the prayer macro, you know - the "
How to convince yourself you're helping while doing nothing.
" Well, except compromising bodily autonomy...
Until there is some contraceptive that is 100%, accidents will always happen and either way, abortion should always be available, safe and affordable.
4/27/2011 6:40:46 PM
So these people care more about the non existent feelings of toys more than the feelings and rights of women, now?
Not too surprised.
4/27/2011 7:13:36 PM
Didn't know the pro-life movement was this strong in Ontario. Scary.
4/27/2011 7:29:02 PM
What to know how many children will go without food tomorrow?
Oh how silly of me! I forgot you don't give a shit about that.
4/27/2011 8:32:05 PM
See, I see this and all I can think of is some poor ass homeless kid who wasn't aborted seeing this and asking where the hell are all these excess toys no one told him about.
I'm sure that's reflecting poorly on one of us, just let me figure out which.

Appeal to emotion is not a valid debating tactic.
Appeal to emotion is not a valid debating tactic.
APPEAL TO EMOTION IS NOT A GOD DAMN MOTHER FUCKING VALID DEBATING TACTIC.

Let's asume that the toys are sentient beings, the same would happen with those children who are miscarriaged or those who, more dramatically, die before they're five?. And,anyway, I guess those toys will be purchased anyway. That's the problem with emotional appeal.
