We know how scared the fetus freaks are by how loudly they SHRIIIEEEK in idiotically inflated language.
So, congratulations to the latest study of crisis pregnancy centres (CPCs), aka fake clinics, in Ontario. You've scared them witless. Again. Here's
the most recent in a long, long series of efforts to document the lies, manipulation, and shaming these evil outfits mete out. (In this oldish blogpost
are links to a few of the countless other studies and investigations.)
To absolutely no one's surprise, this is what researchers found:
Crisis pregnancy centres, which most people know from transit ads or campus posters, are pathologizing and stigmatizing women who reach out to them after an abortion, according to a new study.
Or, in the words of the abstract
Conclusions: The expanded provision of post-abortion support by CPCs in Ontario represents a new method for these organizations to pathologize abortion. Our findings suggest their services are judgmental and shaming, thereby contributing to abortion stigma.
(The terrible photographs in the National Post article are in themselves a testament to society-wide anti-choice judgment and shaming. Why not show photos of "post-abortive" women doing things like, gee, I dunno, eating an ice-cream cone, going for a bike ride, laughing with friends.)
Here is LieShite's
operatic, no, make that Shakespearean, response.
A new report in a journal with the telling name “Contraception” has concluded that Crisis Pregnancy Centers (CPCs) in Ontario treat abortion as if it were something more than having a wart removed and that the counseling found at such centers only contributes to “abortion stigma” by using “judgmental and shaming” techniques.
Titled “Toll free but not judgment free: Evaluating post-abortion support services in Ontario,” the report is from beginning to end nothing but pro-abortion propaganda written by pro-abortion activists. It appears to have the goal of silencing pro-life counsellors who recognize that a living human being exists in a mother’s womb and that when a mother kills her own child it will eventually come back to haunt her.Note typical scare quotes and co-option of progressive language. Not to mention fetuses haunting former hosts.
It gets better -- or worse, depending on your viewpoint.
For example, did you know that Lady Macbeth had an abortion?
Killing another person always damages the soul of the killer, whether the victim is a full grown adult, a child, or a baby in the womb. Shakespeare expressed this well in the character of Lady Macbeth, who, for all her ambition, cunning, and strength of will, eventually cracked after masterminding the coldblooded murder of the king. Through her display of psychological disorders and gradual loss of reason Shakespeare offered a severe warning to anyone who deliberately acts to bring blood upon their own hands.OK, maybe Lady Macbeth didn't have an abortion, but a fictitious character's reaction to regicide is totally pertinent to a discussion about fake clinics in Ontario, right?
If you don't want to read the whole hysterical dumbfuck article, here is a selection of words and phrases used to describe the researchers, the report, and "post-abortive women" in general:
• axe to grind
• sick and twisted
• post-abortive women are truly broken
• lives have been damaged and even ruined by abortion
Stigmatizing? Nah, who's stigmatizing self-hating, nauseating, sick and twisted, truly broken people here?
The real evil, according to LieShite, is, of course, the researchers.
It’s as if the authors of this report want to lock post-abortive women in a lifetime of guilt and regret by taking away from them the only resources that actually help them come to terms with the pain experienced after abortion. This is not helpful to women. This is simply cruelty and torture.
Let's go back to the abstract
for what those evil researchers had to say about the implications of their work.
IMPLICATIONS: Post-abortion support services appear to be a new frontier by which CPCs are able to stigmatize and pathologize abortion. Increasing awareness of and access to existing non-judgmental, non-directive post-abortion services appears warranted.
Because, of course, there are
existing non-judgmental services available. But there needs to be more done here, everyone agrees.
Ontario should look to Quebec, researcher Kathryn J. LaRoche said.
“In Quebec, the government has come out with materials denouncing crisis pregnancy centres and saying that they provide false information and lie to their clients,” she said.I'd go further. But then I would
, wouldn't I?
Ontario should regulate crisis pregnancy centres. If they're pretending to offer health care, they deserve as much attention as other outright quackery
Let there be a College of Slut-Shaming and Reproductive Misinformation, like the College of Homeopaths of Ontario
Wouldn't their Code of Ethics be fun?
