Men’s Rights Canada responds with poster campaign to raise public awareness denouncing the lack of judicial accountability of women who murder their babies and children.
Men’s Rights Canada is bringing attention to Infanticide Culture in Canada and has concluded it’s first successful Canada-wide poster campaign. Thousands of posters bearing the message “Just because it’s your child, doesn’t mean it’s your trash: Don’t be that girl” were distributed coast-to-coast in Canada.
Sarah Leung drowned her two infant children in a toilet—one in 2009 and another in 2010—then threw them into the trash. April 10th, 2014 Sarah Leung was convicted on two counts of infanticide. A crime that carries a lesser penalty for women murdering infants than men according to Criminal Code of Canada. Sarah Leung will serve only a maximum ten years for murdering her two children.
Men’s Rights Canada believes Sarah Leung and some Canadian women haven’t gotten the message that infanticide is wrong due to judicial and legal lenience towards and social acceptance of infanticide by women in Canada.
The posters are a take off on the widespread “Don’t Be That Guy” campaign to reduce rape. If telling men to not rape reduces rape, then it stands to reason telling women to stop drowning their infants in toilets will work to reduce infanticide.
Feminist groups initially opposed to local campaigns by Men’s Rights Edmonton and Men’s Rights Vancouver have since scaled back their opposition, possibly in recognition of the legitimacy of the message. Quite simply, if Canadian men need to be told not to rape, then Canadian women need to be told not to murder their infants.
The Men’s Rights Canada cross Canada “Infanticide Culture” campaign was concluded April 12th, 2014 with a final postering in Vancouver. 600 hundred posters went up; all were apparently torn down by Infanticide supporters.
