Ads on METRO #2: A Second Look


This ad inspired me to take a peek at The Second Look Project. It is a coordinated ad campaign to advise people of the reality of Roe v. Wade. Their slogan, “Have we gone too far?” challenges the “conventional wisdom” the abortion-on-demand movement has worked hard to engrain in the American psyche. Their Roe reality check debunks abortion myths with some straight facts. For example:

What is more interesting is the response to the ads in the bay area. According to the San Francisco Chronicle, opponents of the ad campaign have responded by acts of vandalism and calls for censorship.

Fascists around the world would be proud. Why waste time engaging in a discussion with radical right-wingers the likes of the Diocese of San Francisco and the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops? The only way to deal with such religious zealotry is to tear down their propaganda and demand the local government censor their message. Never mind that most Americans agree with the pro-life movement on these matters. Why let facts get in the way of the abortion-on-demand agenda?

I wonder what the ACLU would say about the pro-aborts’ tactics?

  • I'm not surprised that the ads were met with violent opposition. Its a tragedy that abortion has become indispensible in the minds of many people.

    A quote:

    "If we could padlock all the abortion clinics tomorrow, we’d see the next morning a line 3200 women long pounding on the doors. We wouldn’t have solved the problems that make their pregnancies seem unbearable. We wouldn’t have changed the context that normalizes promiscuity and undermines a woman’s authority to say no. We wouldn’t have restored respect for the profession of mothering, or respect for fathering for that matter, so that men would be proud to love the moms and support the children whose lives they begin."

    Here's the rest of that essay, I think its a good one: http://www.frederica.com/writings/three-bad-ideas-for-women.html

    One thing that gives me hope - crisis pregnancy centers, most of them staffed by volunteers and operating on a shoestring budget, outnumber abortion clinics by a very wide margin. To me, that speaks volumes about what women choose when they feel that they have a choice.
