Pro abortion advocates want the pro-life vigil outside a hospital to stop, and have written open letter to police, city counsel and the hospital trust. Is there a little hypocrisy or is this praying unexceptionable?


British abortion activists are demanding that local officials put an end to a peaceful pro-life vigil outside of a Nottingham hospital that performs abortions.

Notts TV reports the group Pro-Choice Nottingham wrote an open letter to the city council, local police and chief executive of the Nottingham University Hospitals Trust, urging them to silence the pro-lifers and stop their 40 Days for Life vigil.

Pro abortion groups demand that action is taken as quickly as possible, people praying are trespassing and intimidating the women going in for procedures.


The pro-abortion group “demand[s] that all possible action is taken as quickly as possible to remove 40 days for life from the hospital campus and allow women proper access to reproductive healthcare,” according to their letter. They also called the pro-lifers “trespassers who are intimidating vulnerable women.


The 40 days praying protestors are non aggressive, far away form the entrance and will not talk or harass the patients.


40 Days for Life specifically focuses on peaceful, non-aggressive pro-life prayer vigils and outreach outside abortion facilities. The pro-life group leaders in Nottingham emphasized these principles in an interview with the local TV station.

“We are quite a long way from the entrance, we will not approach people, people approach us but if they protest we talk to them but we don’t harangue or harass and we are certainly not here to condemn or judge people,” local pro-life leader John Edwards said.

Maybe we should open up abortion shops in walmarts-
helps people prevent accidental reproduction, and makes it too hard for the religious nuts to protest them all.

I imagine the cost could drop if it was offered in a retail environment. But I think the protests, if you can call them that would continue.

If the protesters are trespassing and harassing people, they should be arrested and shut down. If not, then let them protest in peace. Why is this an issue? Those protesters don't even understand their own bible.

Well this is new and exciting...

Not.

This has been going on for decades. It's never peaceful, they harass every employee and customer that walks up to the business.

They should be told to GTFO.

Interesting, because I cannot find any actual evidence that they are "far from the entrance".

I certainly think that if they are on the grounds of the hospital in any regard, they ought to be moved off though. Aborting a baby is not something one needs to be guilt tripped over. People have gone to the madhouse over less.

Its not a business.

Queens Medical Centre is a proper hospital, one built on socialist ideals.

I keep getting told that protesters blocking streets and any other facility is just fine.
I don't agree but hey, you can't have it both ways.
Make up your mind already.

First, it's pro-choice, no one is "pro-abortion".
Second, prayers belong at home, or in a church (or religious centre).
At a hospital, for this subject, it's just a protest.

word quibbling. what 'choice'? the choice of abortion. of course they are pro-abortion.

a prayer is an appeal to the Divine. why should they be limited to private places or churches? Should believers not be allowed to say grace before meals? should government meetings never start with prayer?
why should prayer be private, but other protests just fine when spoken in public? do we just want to silence religious people?

At a hospital, for this subject, it's just a protest.
pipeline protestors protest on site. Code Pink protests government meetings. why are hospitals and clinics off-limits? that's where the unborn babies are being slaughtered. excuse me, that's where the abortions are happening.

Man, Britain's got those sacrilegious cucks too? Sorry to hear that, Britain.

Few thing are worse than people using prayer to guilt someone, to make someone feel bad. I am pretty sure that this where Jesus would stop turning the other cheek and start slapping people silly instead.

I cannot stand people using Christianity like that, it is so far removed from everything it is supposed to stand for.

Cumin are worse, though; cumin is just as yucky as sacrilegious cucks, but much more prone to get stuck in your teeth.

So you won't quibble if people start referring to "pro-lifers", as "pro-rape-baby".

Got it. Mischaracterization doesn't exist in your world, so no need to "word quibble" about the fact that you support forcing women to bring forth more unwanted rape-babies into the world.

Or, you could simply accept the fact that "choice" inherently implies "options", and in this case one of those options is to actually give birth to a child. No, pro-choice does not simply equal "pro-abortion" any more (or less) than pro-choice equals pro-life.

If you want to give birth to a child, then pro-choice folks fully support your choice to do so.

Doesn't Jesus actually say that?

It is no one else's business what a woman and her doctor decide on her reproductive choices.

If it's against your belief, don't do it.

Britain?

Really?

I didnt know there were any people who "Prayed" left in Britain!

Oh......o.k., saw the photo; those aren't "English" people, they're immigrants, probably from Eastern Europe.

Whew! Had me there for a moment.

I see this as a selective silencing of protestors. So these protestors are going to do this for 40 days and say they aren't harassing anyone or blocking access. What is the problem? Is this not politically correct enough? If those that are using the clinic are so unsure of their decision that they may not go through with it because of a prayer group, maybe they should rethink their decision.
In the US we have all sorts of protests; #BLM comes to mind as most recent. These protestors are saying that all lives matter but they must be silenced.

The protesters are on a grassed area directly opposite the entrance to the QMC, approximately twenty feet away and would be directly visible to anyone entering or leaving. They are on the hospital grounds so in theory could be removed and the hospital has said it will do so if they should become a nuisance. It's my local hospital so I caught this on the local news.

No, technically pro choice means you have the choice whether or not to have an abortion without others putting undue pressure on you to do what they want.

I said it's none of their business.

And it isn't.

Did I say they don't have a right to protest?

Twenty feet?

I thought as much. Far from the entrance, my hairy buttocks. Whoever writes these articles needs a lesson in journalism.
