Mothers for "life"  
The mothers for "life" are a group of mothers who meet at the local plunket. They picket abortion seekers at the hospital, using their babies instead of placards. They dress these kids in hand-printed tops with slogans like "I am a child, not a choice!". I posted awhile ago to my journal saying that whilst I found their actions disgusting, I supported their right to freedom of expression. But now they are pissing me off so much that I think they should be banned.

The other day, they tried to persuade my friend (who has a seven month old baby) to join them. "You're baby was a fetus seven months ago," the president told her. "And would you kill her? The only difference between our babies and theirs is that ours are older. Join us and save the babies.
Then this same woman emailed me saying "Thank you for supporting our cause. Here is some more information about us, and please sign our members bill to ban under 16-year-olds from getting an abortion without their parent's consent

If you find them annoying or unsavory, think about how much worse it is for the women they're harassing.

While you can't argue for banning them without coming off like a hypocrite, you can get your own pro-choice message out there. Organize counter-protests or volunteer as a clinic escort.

Well, yeah, once it's BORN it's a child, not a choice. *eyeroll*. Sorry, useless comment.
