We couldn’t overlook this one – and those living in the Twin Cities won’t be able to either.
Darcy Pohland, from WCCO news, reports “For the past few days, a plane has flown around the Twin Cities pulling a banner with a picture allegedly of an aborted fetus.” A fly-by was reported over the Minneapolis Stone Arch Festival, downtown, and elsewhere.
Literally creating the buzz, is the Center for Bio-Ethical Reform. They state, "We readily admit where we display these pictures, born children are upset. It must also be said that where we don't show them, unborn children are killed."
Yet, the actual aim of this effort is targeted towards voters. Behind their idea, is a bizarre notion that this banner-effort will garner support for anti-choice candidates.
At least they are not claiming it will do anything to prevent abortion. Possibly a small concession to the fact that preventing the need requires preventing unintended pregnancies. That takes access to birth control and information – not a twin engine. Imagine what this group could have accomplished had they spent their money promoting true reproductive health measures.
