Today’s Anti-Abortion WTF Moment

I ask you, who does this?

original

Unbelievable. I don’t think there’s enough irony in the world for this marketing ploy to make sense. Either this dry cleaners’ is cluelessly unaware of the historic, documented impact of anti-abortion laws, or else they are aware of it and are just being cruel. According to the story, Cincinnati’s Springdale Dry Cleaners has been getting negative publicity (and losing customers) over this since 2010. So I’ll take cruel.

Assholes.

    I’d suggest it’s more likely clueless and the irony is completely missed by them. We stopped using them years ago because they did such a lousy job cleaning items.

    Joe, what the heck do you mean? WHOSE life are they ‘protecting’? They must have attended the Todd Akin School about what ‘rape’ is…so ignorant, so anti-FEMALE. This ignorance, this hatred of women and girls, this judgment of US based on some twisted ‘religious’ myth that calls women murderers and their medical providers criminals who provide professional, medical care that is legal, and moral as well. Just because they claim that their ‘god’ says blah blah about rape and abortion, does NOT mean they are allowed to push all that fanatical crap on females is disgusting. We had two little girls here in East TN (but this happens everywhere!) repeatedly raped by a ‘family friend’ ages 11 and 12, who were forced by these ‘devout parents’ to carry and deliver these fetuses from an evil rapist. The evil continued. Their lives have been destroyed by criminals, then judged that ‘somehow they asked for it’ and they, the girls, must PAY for it. And one of the creeps actually threatened the parents if they ‘reported him’, he would kill them.

    This:

    ““I think it’s the perfect place to advertise a pro-life message,” Springdale Cleaners owner Paul Dehler told HuffPost. The 66-year-old said he printed the images on the hangers to support his sister, who’s opposed to women’s right to choose an abortion.”

    “I don’t get into all that,” Dehler said of the abortion debate. “I’m just putting the message out there, and doing it for my sister.”

    is from the Huffpo article here (http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/12/11/pro-life-coat-hangers-springdale-cleaners_n_2277562.html)

    I’m glad that I don’t have a delusional belief system that prompts me to do shit like this.
