The Anti-Choice Project has just posted video of an altercation its street protesters had with 2 female pro-abort prattlers on September 5 at a busy intersection in Silverdale, WA.

I really appreciate the pro-lifer’s measured, honest response to the stereo rant. I also love his simple explanation of the principle of double effect. And I wonder who was caring for the tie-dyed woman’s 2 young daughters, who she complained were crying.  I question how disturbed she was by their reaction, really – if they really had that reaction – if she so readily abandoned them to verbally spar (in their view?). Finally, what a great ending – a police officer stopping the magpies cold….

The Anti-Choice Project further explains the principle of double effect:

Although the conditions of this ethical principle may sound complicated, all of us apply them frequently. A little boy cuts his hand, and his mother puts an antiseptic on the cut. This action has 2 effects: it causes the boy pain and it wards off infection. Although the mother may not realize it, she actually used the principle of double effect. She performed an action that was good in itself, that had 2 effects, 1 of which was bad (pain).

Though the Anti-Choice Project never intentionally shows small children pictures of abortion, it can be foreseen that our strategy will result in their viewing.

Employing the criteria of the Principle of Double Effect, we have weighed the “bad effect” against the “good effect” and, since the graphic images change minds, have come to the conclusion that the lives saved from a torturous death matter more than the feelings and emotions of born children.
