This morning (Feb 16th 2013) at the Fertility Control Clinic a 40 Days for Life protester was displaying graphic images to every person who passed by on foot or in a vehicle. Patients entering the clinic found these to be so distressing that the clinic called for Police attendance, labelling the images obscene.
Police were unable to stop the woman displaying the images as she claimed to have authorisation from the courts. A compromise was reached whereby she would not display them to children or towards the road, while Police took photos of the images to verify her claims.
We do not intend to reproduce the images here but this image censored to remove the images shows how the woman displayed them to passers by.
Clinic staff despair at these protesters as they have to explain to their patients and families how they are allowed to inflict grief and shame. Sadly these religious bigots just don’t care for women.
With strength in numbers we can keep 40 Days for Life away from the clinic entrance.
Join us 9:30am every Saturday at 118 Wellington Parade East Melbourne.
