WI Right to Life Respect for Mothers? Seriously Funny.

Share
Wisconsin Right to Life issued a press release today with a typo that reads: “Wisconsin Right to Life Lunches ‘Pass It On’ Campaign.” They want to honor mothers or something, which is kind of ironic given a video I captured recently.

In the release, WRTL announces they will are “actively searching for positive web content with life and family messages that can quite literally be passed around the world and make a difference in someone’s life.” They go on to say: “Mothers are the backbone of many families today and too often the only parent present in a child’s life,” said Lyons. “As we approach another day in which we honor mothers, this video promotes respect for mothers in an unusual but profound way.”

I actually have a submission for the video that allegedly “promotes respect for mothers in an unusual but profound way.” But the pro-lifers in the video actually show NO respect for a pro-choice pregnant mother at the April 15 Tea Party, calling her a “babykiller.”

 

Admittedly, the video is a little shakey as I’m trying to make my way through the mob with a camera phone, following the pro-choice/pro-family ladies as they are harrassed.

And as for the typo in the headline of the WRTL release (seen here) that reminds me of something else. An actual scene from an episode of the Office, called “Launch Party”.

 

Kevin Malone: Isn’t 7:00 PM a little late for a “Lunch Party”?

Angela Martin: [to Phyllis] “Lunch Party”? It’s supposed to say “Launch Party.” What’s wrong with you?

Phyllis Lapin: How do you feel about the fact that the banner says “Lunch”?

Angela Martin: I feel angry. Angry at you. Angry at you for doing something stupid. Angry at me for believing you could do something not stupid.

 

Phyllis Lapin: I’m so sorry to hear that. That must be awful.

Angela Martin: It is awful. You’ve made this day awful.

Kevin Malone: Maybe you could just change the U into an A.

 
Angela Martin: Then it would say “Lanch Party,” Kevin. Would it really be better if it said “Lanch Party”?

Michael Scott: Ah, a lunch party.
