Trick-Or-Treat? Here’s Some Anti-Choice Propaganda Instead!
Wait one second, Fat-Shaming Trick-Or-Treat Lady! Before you claim the Worst House To Visit On Halloween Award, we have another contender! This past Halloween night, some trick-or-treaters in Albuquerque, New Mexico, discovered anti-abortion business card-sized literature amongst their bounty of Reese’s peanut butter cups, M&Ms and Starbursts. The cards are printed with pictures of fetuses alongside messages like “I am not a clump of cells, I am a human being,” “Am I not human?” and “53 million killed.” What a waste of paper! And not just because the anti-choice messaging is crap. I mean, clearly the pamphlets come as a complete disappointment to kids who expected candy and instead got finger cuts. Even a goddamn Mounds would be better! But I can’t imagine any parent who’s actually on the fence about abortion would be impressed by tactics like this. I mean, they went out for a nice evening trick-or-treating with their little Snow White or whatever and ended the night having to explain what abortion is to a six-year-old. I’m sure that really swayed them. [via Jezebel]
