In case you're in the mood to read something so completely so wackadoodle your head may explode, check it out ... While some parents in North Dakota were contending with their self-righteous neighbor hell-bent on fat-shaming children, in Albuquerque, New Mexico, parents were "treated" to anti-abortion cards in their kids' candy haul!
Imagine digging in your daughter's pillow case for a Snickers and coming out with a card displaying a fetus that declares, "I am not a clump of cells. I am a human being." Err, how 'bout fun-size Skittles? Nope, here's another card that says, "Am I not human?" SO insaaaaane!
The only thing that makes sense about this revolting move is the timing: The local news station points out that the city is having a special election on November 19 to vote on a referendum that would ban abortions after 20 weeks in the city on the (false) grounds that at 20 weeks, a fetus can feel pain.
However, the group spearheading the referendum, called Protect ABQ Women and Children, claims they are not behind this horrifying Halloween trick. Instead, residents trace the cards back to a woman whose house is decorated with anti-abortion signs. When a local news station tried to speak with her, she refused to go on camera and said if people still choose to ring her doorbell and ask for candy on Halloween, she has a right to share her beliefs. Coo coo!
And this, ladies and gentlemen, is what we call a wingnut. No matter where you stand on this controversial, sensitive topic, under no circumstances is it okay or acceptable or tolerable to go on the attack by targeting little trick or treaters on Halloween. There are appropriate times and places, and this was NEITHER of those. Because let's be honest: It's not like there are that many people who are on the fence on abortion, and are those who are actually going to be swayed like this?! Notsomuch.
I'm sure most parents who even agree with this woman politically are enraged that she did this to their kids. It's sick. I can only hope this served as a warning for parents to keep their little ones from ever knocking on this real life witch's door!
What do you think of this woman's assertion that if kids come to her door, she has a right to share her beliefs?
