Pro-Life Bus Ads In Regina Spark Only Mild Prostest
By Thaddeus M. Baklinski
REGINA, Saskatchewan, June 2, 2010 (LifeSIteNews.com) - Pro-life ads that began appearing on City of Regina buses on May 31 have met with only mild protest.
Robert Walldigger, president of Regina Pro-Life which is sponsoring the ad campaign, told LifeSiteNews that he has received only two calls from women upset with the images. The advertisements feature images of unborn children that might appear in any school textbook adjacent to a message about abortion.
One woman identified by CBC News as Shannon Tessier, told Walldigger she disliked an ad that read "Growing, Growing, Gone" under images of developing pre-borns and then a blank frame.
"It's right there on city property," Shannon Tessier told CBC News. "It's disturbing, it's disgusting and it shouldn't be anywhere where someone under the age of, say, 15 or 16 can see it. Obviously if you've had an abortion and you see a picture of that anywhere on the back of a bus or something like that, it's not something that you want to be reminded of that you've done."
