15 Jun “Celebrate Motherhood” Banned: The Photos
Last week we told you about the “Women Deliver” conference held in Washington D.C. where a typical conference bag (the kind of bag that is handed out for free at conferences all over the world) was confiscated by conference organizers. What was written on the bag that was so offensive that it was banned? Nothing more than the simple phrase “Celebrate Motherhood.” May we say again: The supposed “pro-choice” movement is about anything but choice.
On the last day, the National Right to Life Federation (NRTLF) stood outside the convention center handing out bags emblazoned with the slogan “Celebrate Motherhood” to conference-goers. The bags contained fetal models and information on proven maternal mortality reduction strategies. Desperate to shut out any pro-life messages, security guards and conference staffers barred the front entrance, demanded to look inside conference-goers parcels and confiscated the offending bags right out of the hands of individuals, despite objections. Stunned by the actions of the conference staff, one NRTLF volunteer rhetorically asked “Isn’t this supposed to be a conference to help mothers?” (reported by Samantha Singson)
