Brainstorming: How Do We Respond to This Act of Pro-Abortion Vandalism in Seattle?
live action ^ | 7.24.2012 | Thomas Peters

Pro-abortion activists are praising someone who vandalized a pro-life pregnancy resource center’s advertisement on a major bus route in Seattle, WA with this sticker:

The sticker reads: “Be advised: this is an anti-choice organization. They will NOT present you with all your legal & medical options. Call Planned Parenthood instead [number].”

It’s ironic this anonymous vandal would promote Planned Parenthood over a pro-life pregnancy center when an Illinois woman just died after going to a Planned Parenthood clinic for an abortion (see my previous report here) and the news today that yet another woman has been injured during a Planned Parenthood abortion.

Here is what some pro-abortion bloggers had to say about this act of pro-abortion vandalism:

Vanessa of Feministing: “Bad-a** of the Day. Awesome.”

Kaye of Upworthy: “Something pretty awesome happened – it got sticker-bombed”

Shelby of SK: “This is fabulous! Go random Seattle activist doing good in the world.”

All these pro-abortion activists seem to think this vandalism is justified because pro-life pregnancy centers don’t present women with all their “choices.” But of course we know it is Planned Parenthood that regularly misinforms, distorts and lies to women about what is their total range of options (including adoption).

After all, what women doesn’t already know about abortion? Instead, it’s the many, many women who don’t know the full range of abortion alternatives and types of support for pregnancy that need to be reached through effective advertising such as bus and metro ads like this one. The sticker pretty clearly obscures this bus ad claiming to offer “abortion alternatives” so how can pro-aborts accuse this pro-life center of false advertising?

I think we need to respond to this act of vandalism aggressively. Here’s a few ways we can do that (please share your additional ideas in the comments!)

The Seattle pro-life pregnancy center in question is Birthright. Their local chapter in Seattle is located at 9641 20th Avenue SW (Ph: 206-957-7790). I know, for instance, that they were looking for volunteers this summer. Let’s support this local pro-life pregnancy center! The metro service this vandalism happened on was Metro Transit. I think we should inquire with them if they intend to investigate this act of vandalism (or compensate Birthright for their lost advertising use). We should also contact Planned Parenthood and ask if they condone or condemn this type of vandalism of public property.

I’m open to other ways of responding but these are the top three that come to mind for me. I don’t know about you but I’m sick and tired of pro-abortion activists gloating after they break the law and endanger more young women (and unborn children!) by harassing legitimate pro-life initiatives.

Just use a new but slightly larger sticker that says “Planned Parenthood Kills Mothers and Babies”

There is no dealing with these morons. There is just biding your time before the shooting starts...

"Shelby of SK: “This is fabulous! Go random Seattle activist doing good in the world.” "

I can see someone disagreeing with you on whether abortion should be legal or not.. but to call killing babies "doing good in the world" ?

Where does all this hatred for people who want to save babies lives come from? That's some kind of special evil.

How do we respond?

Put up more billboards. Expect them to be defaced.

After all, more kids arrive in the womb all the time. And the pro-aborts literally "deface" those kids.

So. Why would we expect what goes on daily in the womb -- a "vandalism" of the womb, if you will -- to be any different when you side with these victims outside the womb?

The pro-life movement must continue to "flesh out" what the pro-aborts do to these babies.

So...perhaps some billboards of pix of alive fetuses in the womb...with the question: "Would you take hold of a suction aspiration machine to dismember this child?"

Inform Planned Parenthood that they are advertising on your signs, charge them for the cost of each sign so labelled or you will affix a comparable, pro-life sticker on a pro-choice sign of theirs.
Tell them that they are violating your peaceable First Amendment rights, and if they continue to do so, you will protest them twice as much - your continued pro-life outreach and redoubled to make up for the suppressed free speech.

I believe one can legally do that.
