Graphic, Misleading Anti-Abortion Campaign Launched in Canada
The Canadian Centre for Bio-Ethical Reform (CCBR) has launched a national anti-abortion campaign, which uses a truck plastered with graphic and misleading images in the hope of advancing their beliefs.
These tactics frequently backfire and even those who oppose abortion often object to these images. According to an article in this weekend’s National Post, earlier this year, Calgary Bishop Fred Henry withdrew his support from CCBR over opposition to its practices.
NAF member and executive director of Calgary’s Kensington Clinic, Celia Posyniak, told the Post such “scare tactics,” don’t work, since women seeking an abortion have “very compelling reasons” for doing so and will only be upset, not influenced, by the billboards.
