We Seem to Have Caught their Attention
From today’s press release:
The group has a formal debate planned for Wednesday, June 6 at 7:30 PM at the Edmonton Clinic Health Academy (2nd Floor, Room 490 at 87th Ave and 114th St.) with Dr. Howard Nye, a philosophy professor from the University of Alberta. Abortion advocates have already press released their plan to protest this event with what they call “The New Abortion Caravan Caravan.”
“These acts of cowardice mean to terrify women, rather than work towards a well informed and safe decision that preserves the quality of life for potential mothers,” said counter-protest organizer Kelly Fischer. “Despite the games they play in an attempt to make a one sided argument, we are pulling together to respond.”
Stephanie Gray responded by pointing out that the event Ms. Fischer’s group is planning to protest is a formal debate with both sides represented: “It’s ironic that Ms. Fischer would call our argument ‘one sided’ when the very nature of a debate is that both sides are represented and make their case. We are confident that embryology, biology, and a philosophically consistent view of human rights lie on the pro-life side, and look forward to making that case both on the streets and in the debate.”
More seriously, it means we’ll be watched like a hawk. The CCBR is hoping for extreme or stupid behaviour, because it validates their need to protest. Their worst nightmare is a bunch of boring protesters holding signs.
That sounds like a plan.
