Editor’s note. The following comes from our Canadian friends at weneedalaw.ca
Due to the politics of abortion and the shrill voices that all too often dominate the public debate, there is another uninformed, misleading petition being circulated. It turns out there are a number of advertisements on Toronto Transit Commission buses offering help to women with unplanned pregnancies. This has abortion advocates upset and they want them taken down. They have gone so far as to allege that local pregnancy care centres are lying to their patients.
The petition states: “Pregnancy Care Centres are anti-choice and are known to provide women with false medical information on abortions.” In actuality it is their claim that is a lie.
ACTION ITEM: Use this Compliment Form on the Toronto Transit Commission website to let them know you support freedom of expression and the ability of Pregnancy Care Centres to advertise on TTC buses.
Click here for link to Compliment Form. Please make use of one of the sample letters below by copy and pasting it into the form on the TTC website. You are welcome to edit but we’re trying to make it easy for you.
Thanks for your immediate attention to this matter!
