‘Two-thirds of Canadian women don’t support current abortion policy.’ That’s the conclusion of an Environics poll commissioned by the fetus fetishizers at Life Canada.
Well, we at Birth Pangs commissioned a poll of our own. We asked the esteemed polling firm Upay-Wespin to ask Canadians ‘When was the last time you made and burned an effigy of Stephen (Bully-Boy) Harper?’ The options given were: in the last hour, in the last 24 hours, in the last week, and in the last month.
When we looked at the numbers, we figured that anyone who read or watched more than one news report over the last week would have made and burned at least one effigy of Stephen (Let Canadians Fry in Merkin Jails) Harper. So, we added up the numbers for one hour, one day, and one week, and came up with this conclusion: ‘Stephen (Blood and Shit on Afghan Prison Floors Is Not My Problem) Harper and his gang of thugs is the worst thing to happen to Canada since — ever.’
But we digress.
Every year since 2002 the Krazy Kristian Kriminalizers have commissioned yet another of these tedious polls asking Canadians the same tedious questions.
The ’2007 Poll Report’ is available here
in PDF format only.
Have a look at this table.
Well, looky there. Support for the ‘from conception’
idiocy notion has actually fallen — and by quite a lot. From 37% in 2002 to just 30% in 2007. Support for the ‘at birth’ position has risen slightly from 30% to 33%.
(And note that the total of the 2007 numbers for all points before birth is 62%, not two-thirds, which would be 66.6%. That’s because this table represents both women and evil baby-hating men, only 57% of whom think this is any of their business. Hey! That’s kinda encouraging. Only 57% of men think this is any of . . . But we digress again.)
So, we at Birth Pangs have a word of advice for the fetus fetishizers. Stop with the polls already. Save your money. Buy more Blobs-on-a-Stick.
Or, as our friend and ally Croghan27 at Bread and Roses encouraged us to say: duh, you’re losing.
