People living in cities are accustomed to experiencing all manner of unpleasant sights and sounds as they traverse through their daily lives, but there are few that are as aggressively disgusting as the Foetus-Mobile, a truck that drives through Calgary plastered with images of dismembered fetuses as part of an ongoing abortion protest by the Canadian Centre for Bio-Ethical Reform.
Regardless of how you stand on abortion, showing images of this nature in public is inappropriate and disrespectful (I won’t even link you to their website, since they do the same thing on their front page). People in Calgary are getting tired of seeing this not-so-little truck of horrors drive down their streets, so the the Calgary Pro-Choice Coalition has chosen to fight back using images of their own: a comic.
In it, they explain that abortion is legal and supported by the majority of Canadians, that pro-life organizations use scare tactics and disinformation to pressure women against having abortions, and most importantly, what the citizens of Calgary can do to fight back against the Foetus-Mobile.
Though the comic does dip into the “women have a right to choose” argument that many pro-life advocates are likely to ignore, most of the comic stays on target, focusing on getting rid of the truck: a target that both sides can agree is offensive.
