How do the anti-choice/anti-same-sex-marriage/etc crowds manage the leap from "allowing people to do X" to "forcing people to do X"? There seems to be a belief among them that the pro-choicers' actual goal is to make sure there are as many abortions happening as possible, and that the pro-gay-marriagers' goal is to force straight people into same-sex marriages.I can't remember the details, because it was so inane, but I tripped over one rant recently which insisted that the use of a certain term by a Democrat was coded language meant to bring about more abortions.
There seems to be a belief among them that the pro-choicers' actual goal is to make sure there are as many abortions happening as possibleI've often thought exactly the same thing, and furthermore that the anti-choice seem to think pro-choice people have abortions for the fun of it."Having nothing to do on a Saturday night, Bob went down to the park to do drugs, steal candy from children, and make women have abortions."
How do the anti-choice/anti-same-sex-marriage/etc crowds manage the leap from "allowing people to do X" to "forcing people to do X"?I think there's a certain overlap between this demographic and the demographic that believes that "freedom of religion" means "I should get to force everyone else to go through the motions of believing in my religion." So perhaps they think everyone else thinks the same way.
At the Great Glebe Garage Sale (a huge community yard sale over kilometers), the Pro-Choice Coalition of Ottawa had a big display with "Free Coffee" in huge letters, just above "only for those who are pro-choice".They also had cookies. :)I love Ottawa. I didn't know that there would be so many advocacy groups at a community garage sale, but still... Free Cookies!
Cookies For Choice! Love it. :)Garage sales are a great place to do tabling. Sounds like fun.
