THUNDER BAY, Ontario, June 18, 2012 (LifeSiteNews.com) - Pro-life activists with the Canadian cross-country New Abortion Caravan were shocked Saturday as they were doused with chocolate milk while campaigning in Thunder Bay, Ontario.
The pro-life project, led by the Canadian Centre for Bioethical Reform, is travelling from Vancouver to Ottawa with large box-bodied trucks featuring graphic images of aborted babies. They have faced strong opposition in many of the communities they have visited, with counter-protests led in part by the Canadian Auto Workers Union, Canadas largest private sector union.
A Youtube video depicts a man, a local resident and business owner, walking behind several women holding signs with graphic images while he pours chocolate milk over them. He was stopped by police before he was able to empty a second carton on the pro-lifers.
Arrest me. I dont care, says the man. Im speaking for everybody around here. We put all this money together, trying to beautify our neighbourhood, and you come in here
After the incident, the pro-life activists continued their campaign and delivered a presentation, as scheduled, in Thunder Bay that evening.
We are disturbed that this man would bully and assault young women trying to speak up for other women as well as children, said Stephanie Gray, executive director of the Canadian Centre for Bioethical Reform.
But we are inspired by the calm response of our team members who refuse to fight violence with violence. By their actions, my courageous colleagues echoed the sentiment of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. who once said, We will match your ability to inflict suffering with our ability to endure suffering.
this one you have to see! the police were actually there and it looks like they actually did something.
I’m sensing racism here but I can’t quite put my finger on it.
Communists love their violence, inhumanity to others, and killing babies. It’s a tradition with them.
IMO, the graphic images do nothing but turn people against Pro-Lifers.
Yellow balloons and birthday cakes work.
These young women are very lucky it was only chocolate milk. Make Pro-deathers angry and they are likely to do much worse.
Why don't they just make smaller cars if unplanned pregnancy is an issue for the Auto Workers Union?
I didn’t know Thunder Bay was a chocolate city.
My first thought was also that this is a clear exhibition of racism.
AFAIK, it isn’t but maybe the chocolate milk throwers desire it!
The canadian auto workers union? What does this have to do with wages or vacation or retirement benefits?
Liberals - Thieves, Thugs, Thralls and Thickheads
I suppose it’s too much to ask somebody else to throw cookies?
The thing here is get a load of what the man said about the protesters. Something about how hard people in the hood had worked to clean up the area? Yet they have an abortion clinic? Talk about blight. Abortion clinics do more to drive away business because no one wants to be beside them. Then property values fall when places can’t be sold/rented. Think of what that does to local taxes. What these people are doing is just showing what goes on at the local clinic and they shoot the messenger? How about if I hold up graph of what it has done to the local economy then would that make people want rid of the clinic?
I wouldn't want them in my neighborhood either.....good Lord...pictures? SICK. Fight it in court. I hate when Jehovah's come walking around the neighborhood too.....anything forced on you or in your face is going to be highly resented. Especially something with graphic pictures. Those people are loony toons.
If the protestors are lactose-intolerant, would that make it assault with intent to do bodily harm?
How about a drive through ?
“Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.”
“Blessed are they who are persecuted for righteousness sake, for theirs is the Kingdom of Heaven”
That says it all.
I know at least one of the organizers of this caravan personally, and I can assure you he is not a loony toon. In a structured debate, he can use plain old logic to turn poor-choicers into sputtering puddles of irrational goo.
Please don’t give them any ideas!
You know you could swap out an embryo/fetus for that cat and the billboard would be just as true. But I doubt PETA would agree...
