Anne of Green Gables is the Unwanted Child Who Demonstrates the Unexpected Blessing of Choosing Life
Charlottetown, January 28th, 2016 – PEI Right to Life Association would like to make a statement in response to the #iamkarats posters that are being displayed around town depicting Anne wearing a bandana and calling out Premier Wade MacLauchlan for abortion #AccesNow. PEI Right to Life finds it ironic that the group uses an adopted fictional character who is dear to the hearts of Islanders and is the epitome of the unexpected blessing of choosing life, even in challenging and non-idilic circumstances.
Executive Director, Nicole Dupuis says, “I would question the legality of using an image of a registered trademark, which I understand is owned by the family of L.M. Montgomery, and whether they would approve of such a use of the “Anne” character. Anne of Green Gables has warmed the hearts of millions around the world with the hope that unconditional love is possible for an unwanted child coming from difficult circumstances”. Dupuis goes on to state, “using a character who is famous for expressively celebrating even the most mundane things in life as a mascot for a movement that seeks to end the lives of (dehumanized) unwanted children is pathetic”.
