“Why Are They Doing This?”

“I think every woman has noticed them,” said Suzanne “Sam” Joi, a member of Code Pink, a social justice and anti-war group. “I couldn’t believe BART would allow something like this. Why are they doing this?”

“They’re calling for the overturn of Roe vs. Wade, which will lead to the slaughter of women,” said Elizabeth Creely of the Bay Area Coalition for Our Reproductive Rights, referring to fears of unsafe, back-alley abortions if the procedure were illegal. “The Catholic Church is very strong here and is working hard to erode reproductive rights.”

As if BART were the last bastion of legalized abortion in San Francisco. As if people will suddenly appear out of nowhere with large knives and suction devices to kill women–oops, that’s abortion–I mean, as if large, rusty coat-hangers will appear out of nowhere…

Quit your freakin’ whining and fear-mongering. Why does BART have to call the local abortion mill to find out if it wants equal time? Do they call politicians from both parties to make sure everyone’s represented? Belly up and pay to have your own pro-murder signs on trains.

Actually, we could do a study: how many Planned Parenthood/NARAL ads would be vandalized and defaced, compared to the number of these ads that were vandalized or destroyed? Actually, I guarantee you something would happen to them: they would be defaced by pro-murder forces trying to gain sympathy. Christians generally don’t do stupid, childish things like that.

I hope BART doesn’t give in to this typical, heavy-handed pressure. Of course, it could be worse: you could be an unborn baby in New York City.


Another Spielberg Movie

The last time you went to the theater, which movie did you see? Just last week, I went with a friend to see Munich. I had to keep my eyes closed through certain parts of the movie, but Spielberg’s latest work did produce a good discussion afterwards.
