The ads are peppered on nearly every bus and light rail cab in the city: "Pregnant? Worried? We Can Help..." They're advertising Birthright International, "the world's first international crisis pregnancy center," according to its webpage.
As you probably know, liberal Washington lawmakers have tried and failed for years to pass legislation forcing crisis pregnancy centers—which advertise free pregnancy tests and counseling but follow up with fake stats on how abortions correlate to breast cancer, infertility, and an inability to bond with children, EVER—to be up front with women about the limited, non-medical, highly skewed services they offer.
But now at least some of Birthright's transit ads have been graffiti'd by some lady-loving vigilante to include this disclaimer:
- The Stranger
If you can't make it out, the sticker, which seems to have been generated by STFU, Conservatives, reads: "Be advised: This is an anti-choice organization. They will NOT present you with all your legal and medical options. Call Planned Parenthood instead: 1-800-230-7526."
Stickering up bus ads is probably illegal and I'm not encouraging it. But it is refreshing to see one sticker succeed where years of politicking has repeatedly failed.
Curtsies to Alithea for the tip.
