New York City has instituted a new program that, if feminists are intellectually honest, will outrage the left.
Inspired by a similar program in London, the New York Metropolitan Transportation Authority has begun handing out “Baby on Board” buttons to pregnant women as part of its Courtesy Counts campaign, CNN reported.
The program appropriately began on Mother’s Day and runs through Labor Day.
Expectant mothers can choose from the “baby on board,” or another “please offer me a seat” button.
“Pregnant riders, seniors and those with disabilities often need seats more than others but their condition may not always be visible,” Ronnie Hakim, the interim director of the MTA, said in a statement. “We hope this campaign will help their fellow riders to be more willing to offer them a seat without having to ask a personal question first.”
“As with London’s system and many other MTA ‘Courtesy Counts’ messages (such as ‘Don’t Be a Pole Hog’ and ‘Stop the Spread’), this awareness campaign will be self-enforced and not linked to any penalties,” according to officials with the MTA.
But in the uber liberal city of New York, doesn’t this fly in the face of the narrative that a pregnant woman is only carrying a fetus and not a baby?
Many on social media pointed out the hypocrisy.
@CNN Don’t you mean “Fetus on board”? Funny how it’s a “baby” when you need a seat,but a “fetus” when you need a clinic. ?

@CNN Hand those out at the doors of planed parenthood. Let them know what they are aborting.

@CNN I guess “collection of cells forming tissue” on board didn’t test well

New York officially identifies unborn children as “babies”. https://t.co/1b3O4ucin5

The program began on the same day that Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards tweeted that “Nothing says “I love you, Mom!” like standing up for the right of mothers everywhere to get the care they need.”
Translation for “the care they need” being abortion on demand.
Something that was also mocked on social media.
@CecileRichards Nothing says “I love you, Mom!” Like the deafening silence of a dead baby who will never say “I love you, Mom!” Amiright?

@CecileRichards Nothing says “Happy Mother’s Day” like a tweet from leader of a group that terminates motherhood.

@CecileRichards You know what says I love you mom better? A child that survived the butcher shop you run.

@CecileRichards You know who can’t stand up for mothers. The millions of babies that have been aborted. Aren’t you glad ur mom didn’t abort you

@CecileRichards Well I’ll be… if it isn’t a Mother’s Day greeting from a mass-murderer of children.

A baby when it works for you, a fetus when it is expedient.
