Within 24 hours of appearing on Close Up, Alison McCulloch of ALRANZ received a threatening email directed at her and the Southland abortion clinic.
ProLife New Zealand decided this was a great opportunity to stage an online performance art piece known colloquially as “Witness The Gigantic Throbbing Double Standard“, by first stating ALRANZ is:
making a MASSIVE deal out of a SOLITARY and anonymous email which they claim is threatening violence against them
… and then, entitling their post “The very real violence and intimidation of the pro-CHOICE movement in NZ” they …
have a massive cry over a solitary four-year-old YouTube video.
Yes, “real violence” indeed. (It uses cuss words! Oh noes! And also, I totally heard from my friend’s cousin’s brother-in-law that someone totally tried to set a prolifer on fire this one time. Trufax. Because that wouldn’t be the kind of thing antichoicers would raise at every single opportunity.)
It may just pay to note that this is happening in the context of Southlanders For Hate saying they “would continue to find ways to stop the [Southland] abortion services from continuing”.
Sorry, antichoice scum. The simple fact of the matter is that, to someone who doesn’t buy your contemptible Holocaust comparisons, only one side of this debate has an extensive history of violence against the other.
So please, stop embarrassing yourselves by pretending that there is even a vague equivalence between the angry rhetoric of prochoicers and your movement actually killing people. I’ll even be charitable and ignore all the pregnant people you’ve been happy to let die – whether from haemmhoraging to death on hotel room floors, committing suicide, or simply being denied lifesaving medical treatment – and ask you this: who’s your Dr Tiller, you sadistic, controlling, violence-inciting thugs?
