A group of religious nutters from America calling themselves 40 Days for Life, which we’re guessing is a play on the 40 Days and 40 Nights thing, but even Jesus would tell you two weeks is plenty – you just end up doing the same. Thing. Every. Day – has decided to bring their particular brand of retardedness to Her Majesty’s fair shores and are picketing UK abortion clinics.
Their mission, and this is where we bring in the quotation marks, is to ‘draw attention to the evil of abortion through the use of a three-point program: prayer and fasting; constant vigil; community outreach.’
The Texan-based (who knew!) group of god-botherers who, when they’re not on constant vigil can be found fingering themselves on Cam4, has been holding protests outside Marie Stopes House in London. Beata Klepacka (Beata Whata?!) is one such protester. According to the Independent, she could be found fingering her rosary beads (oh really!) and praying loudly (why not quietly? Is God getting a bit deaf in his old age?) outside the clinic last week. She said that the 500 protesters – mostly Catholic (natch) – use a rota to make sure that the clinic is picketed 12 hours a day.
Get a life. Oh, irony!
And now let’s take a moment to look at a some of these religiouses. Who at least have each other.
Anyway, quite apart from whether or not women in desperate situations are ripe for being happy-slapped with the bible, how about minding your own fucking business? Charity, after all, starts at home so we’re thinking a few highlights, four Power Plate sessions a week, and a kick up the cunt.
