GetUp needs to GetREAL!

GetUp needs to GetDown to the facts and put them on the table.  They shout from the rooftops the results of their poll but curiously don't have the poll results on their website — merely a brief few lines in their blog totally unsubstantiated by anything else!  Between dramatic mugshots of women and the lack of viewable evidence of their poll, seems more than a little credibility is lacking.

However, what takes the cake is the scare campaign about graphic billboards being erected in electorates, around Queensland one assumes, as they don't state where.  It would be unlikely that any billboard company would agree to put up 'graphic' billboards, but GetUp sure seem keen to push their agenda any way they can and so, if they can cast aspersions upon pro-life groups in this way, it seems this is the level they will stoop to.

With a mere 20 or so of their members gathering at parliament house in Queensland recently and the lack of supplying names of supposed constituents to the relevant MPs when GetUp was asked for them, seems even more of their credibility is lacking.

Their tired old arguments have had their day.  They just don't stack up.  Real choice is about really caring for women — giving them real options of adoption or fostering with the real option of perhaps one day meeting that child.  Rather than remove the baby, let's help remove the circumstance that make it difficult for that women to birth her child.
