Rich people behaving assholishly.
Really, just follow the fetus fetishist-related links, here, here, here and here.
WAITING FOR THE HYPOCRISY TO START. Despite the early reports, "First Place Pregnancy Centre" is, in fact, a registered charity, albeit under the different name of "Crisis Pregnancy Centre of Ottawa." But if they're a registered charity, doesn't that mean that donations to them are tax deductible? And if they are, well, I'm sure you can see where I'm going with this.
It seems like only yesterday that the shrieking dingbats of the Canadian Nutjob-o-sphere were up in arms about (public taxpayer) funding going to the Status of Women Canada because that group indulged in (gasp! horrors!) "advocacy." Well, then, what's bad for the goose and all that, don't you think?
Frankly, I can't think of more blatant advocacy than a virulently anti-choice bunch of wingnuts trying to discourage women from getting abortions. And if SUZANNE and her following of drooling, mouth-breathing troglodytes were upset about that, then one would think they should be equally (and consistently) upset about this, wouldn't you say?
So let's see if anyone over at the Blogging Tories can rouse themselves from their Cheeto-encrusted BarcaLounger to show the identical outrage now that one of their own has been caught dipping into the taxpayers' pocket. Sadly, though, if experience is any guide, what we'll get is a smattering of sanctimonious hypocrisy, liberally flavoured with the word "whiners" or some variation thereof. And we will, of course, be told that that's, you know, "different."
Because, you know, it just is. You know.
