Anyways, among the other reactions it elicited from me, the article reminded me of a billboard I saw at Young-Dundas Square around January this year. An ad so effecting that I believe it is still worth blogging about over six months later...
WON'T SOMEONE PLEEEEASE THINK OF THE TOYS!?!?!?!?!?!?!?
The thing is that the ad really focuses attention on the weakness of the anti-choice position. Because it forces you to think, "Wait, if those children were never born, then the toys never had them to play with in the first place, so how is that 'fewer'?" They didn't lose playmates, but potential playmates.
Abortion does not entail the loss of life, but the loss of potential life.
