Opinion: Anti-Abortion Quacks Greet Chilliwack Shoppers With Disgusting Images – NSFW

By on April 30, 2011

UPDATED 30/04/11 – COMMENTS RECEIVED – By Mike Archer. The right wing lunatic fringe anti-abortion group CCBR is displaying disgusting images of dismembered first trimester foetuses today and Saturday at the Chilliwack courthouse in a bid to reopen the abortion debate.

One of the images Stephanie Gray and Jonathon Van Maren think are appropriate for the streets of Downtown Chilliwack

In a press release issued this morning the group warns residents to expect to be accosted by the grotesque images as the group continues its fight to keep women and young girls who have been raped by relatives, church members and family friends from seeking medical assistance in ending their pregnancy.
Preferring to leave defenceless young girls to perform their own abortions with coat hangers in dirty alleyways the group intend to foist their anti-women agenda on Chilliwack residents walking through Downtown Chilliwack.
Prior to Canada’s legislation allowing women to have medical abortions, women and young girls were forced to use Dickensian techniques in order to avoid having the bastard children of violent and abusive men who forced themselves on their unsuspecting victims.
Chilliwack residents Jonathon Van Maren, Stephanie Gray and Ania Kasprzak have chosen to use the disgusting and horrific images because they don’t believe in a woman’s right to control her own body due to their own warped belief system
The group’s website states their social engineering agenda thus: “CCBR’s activities are designed to change hearts and minds as a precursor to transforming behavior. People are reached at various venues including high schools, universities, churches, public streets, and public gatherings.”

April 29, 2011. Chilliwack, British Columbia. The Canadian Centre for Bio-Ethical Reform (CCBR) plans to re-open the abortion debate this weekend—and it will be hard to ignore their bloody message. CCBR intern and former Chilliwack resident Jonathon Van Maren, with a small group of pro-life volunteers (including Ania Kasprzak, a former intern for CCBR and also Chilliwack resident) will be displaying 3×4-foot images of dismembered first trimester foetuses in front of the Chilliwack Courthouse. They will be there starting at 11am today, Friday, as well as Saturday.

“Just because Chilliwack doesn’t have an abortion clinic doesn’t mean children from Chilliwack aren’t being aborted in Vancouver or elsewhere,” said CCBR’s executive director Stephanie Gray, also originally from Chilliwack. “Abortion is a reality in every community, and our aim is to expose that reality for what it is: an act of violence that kills a baby, so that it becomes unthinkable.”

CCBR intern Jonathon Van Maren concurred, stating that “While Chilliwack is considered the ‘Bible Belt,’ statistics show that there are a shocking amount of abortions that happen amongst people who identify themselves as religious. Only when abortion becomes unthinkable will people refuse to consider it as an option.”

Graphic signs like these ones have been used in a campaign labeled “Choice” Chain, which has taken place all over Canada in the past year: Calgary, Ottawa, and Vancouver, to name three. While these demonstrations often face fierce opposition from abortion advocates, the group claims they have also proven effective in changing hearts and minds—one young woman gave birth to a baby boy earlier this week after canceling her abortion as a result of seeing “Choice” Chain images in Calgary last August.
