In the main Republican and left wing? December 27, 2016

Thanks to the person who forwarded this… interesting how it is phrased in the text.

FFS! It’s the equivalent of Mattress Mick invoking the Proclamation to sell a few beds. Cherish the children of the nation equally – with Mick’s bunkbeds for kids!

The anti-abortion lobby have been pulling this dirty trick for a while now:

“The phrase ‘unborn lives matter’ has been around for a few years,” Miranda Blue, a researcher for People for the American Way explained to me over email. “Since the beginning of the Black Lives Matter movement, parts of the anti-choice movement have attempted to coopt it to promote their own agenda, and they often do so in a way that is completely dismissive of BLM’s concerns.”

Slogans like “unborn lives matter” serve a twofold purpose: Increase attention to the anti-choice cause while undermining the movement against police violence.


Also, stop calling the anti-abortion lobby “pro-life”. Recall when
the recent Presidential election saw the ascent of a pro-nuclear proliferation, anti-firearms safety, pro-capital punishment politician, most of the anti-abortion lobby were delighted.

The Evangelical Alliance up here in the North have been using the slogan “Both lives matter” for a little while now.

Anti-choice activists (or forced birth advocates) have also been trying to co-opt human rights language, which you can also see in the leaflet above. Does anyone know who has produced it?

There was a story in the Irish News a while back. Joe Brolly’s mam and dad, both SFers. But one of them, can’t remember which, left SF over its pro-abortion stance and was linking up with other anti-abortion republicans. I presume this leaflet comes from them.

JOE! You’re back!

Did you finish the book?


Joe - December 28, 2016

Nah. Sorry. Next year, please God.


yourcousin - December 28, 2016

Don’t be sorry to me Joe. Think about Jesus who died on the cross for YOUR sins. All he wanted for his birthday was for you to finish the book.

Man I wish there was a weeping Jesus emoji. But picture it Joe, and then hang your head in shame.

I think we need to pick a new book and that yourcousin should get first dibs, as he appears to be the only one who read the damn thing.

Don’t suggest that or all the urbane and cosmopolitan folk here will be stuck reading, “The Old Man and the Boy”. In order that you folks might appreciate some of my back woods ways.

That might be of benefit since most Irish people would think ‘Deliverance’ and Monster Trucks whenever ‘US’ and ‘backwoods’ are raised in conversation.

I liked Southern Comfort. A tough little film. But different backwoods.


Ciarán - December 29, 2016

It was Anne Brolly who left Sinn Féin. It may have bee her crowd but it’s still interesting that no organisation/contact details or any kind of identifier appears anywhere in the leaflet.
