40 Days of Harassment and Intimidation .. Robert Doyle where are you?

February 22, 2012

This very morning men and women are taking to the foothpaths of Australia for a cause they believe in.

“On February 22, the next 40 Days for Life campaign begins in 258 locations in the United States, Canada, England, Australia and Spain.  Pray and fast for an end to abortion … and see the list of locations to find — and get involved — in the campaign nearest you!”

Surprise, surprise!  Once again evangelical Christians have imported a concept from their American brethren.  Once again these self-righteous and “morally superior” people are seeking to impose their beliefs upon others.  Once again they seek to do so through intimidation of women.

When will it stop?

For 40 Days they will stand vigil outside the Fertility Control Clinic in East Melbourne.  That will be 34 days longer than Occupy Melbourne spent in City Square before being evicted.

Will Melbourne City Council monitor their behaviour?  Will Melbourne City Council stand by as they intimidate women and staff entering the clinic?

Local residents dislike this 40 Days occupation.  Local traders dislike this 40 Days occupation.  Certainly the staff inside the Fertility Control Clinic dislike this 40 Days occupation.   Will Melbourne City Council ask these occupiers to move on?

Lord Mayor Robert Doyle will you take a stand to protect the free movement and free choice of women?  A choice that is protected by law?  Or will you allow so-called Christians to harass these women without hindrance?
