Pastor Joel Osteen’s service was interrupted by a bunch of pro-choice activists who stripped their clothing in the middle of the church and started shouting, “my body, my choice!”
WATCH the video (and don’t worry, the clothes don’t come all the way off):
According to a video released to social media, one female activist who is a part of the Rise Up 4 Abortion Rights movement shouted in the church, “My body, my f—ing choice,” as she removed her dress and showed her body in underwear only.
Another activist yelled, “Overturn Roe, hell no!” as she took off her clothes. According to Chron, three ladies took part in the protest.
The women were escorted out of the church, leaving Osteen to continue preaching to the delight of the church attendants, said report.
However, the activists continued their protest outside and were joined by a group of like-minded sympathizers.
The activists are members of Rise Up 4 Abortion Rights group that has gained popularity as a group that has spoken out against the abortion draft that leaked last month. The activists are worried about the implementation of the abortion legislation if the Supreme Court overturns the 1973 Roe v. Wade ruling that ensures abortion access.
“I know it seems very outrageous to do it in a church in a private space,” activist Julianne D’Eredita commented on the protest. “However, the people that are enforcing these laws have no qualms coming up to women in private spaces such as doctors’ offices and medical clinics to harass them and call them murderers.”
Thousands of people have watched the footage of the incident. A spokesperson for Osteen’s Lakewood Church did not immediately reply to a request for comment from Fox News Digital.
“Joel Osteen has an international audience, and silence is violence when it comes to things like these,” D’Eredita added. “We have a very unprecedented and very short amount of time to garner the attention that we need to get millions of people on the streets, millions of people doing actions like we were today.”
The Supreme Court has recently issued a series of decisions, but none of them referred to the case that might overturn Roe.
Rise Up 4 Abortion Rights isn’t alone in its fight. In related news focused on Hillary Clinton, it was obvious that she is also against the new law altogether:
During the Met Gala, Zach Stanton posted the following message: “The Supreme Court has voted to strike down the landmark Roe v. Wade decision, according to an initial draft majority opinion written by Justice Samuel Alito circulated inside the court and obtained by POLITICO.”
Hillary Clinton responded to the tweet, which could have been sent while she was at the Met Gala, saying: “Not surprising. But still outrageous. This decision is a direct assault on the dignity, rights, & lives of women, not to mention decades of settled law. It will kill and subjugate women even as a vast majority of Americans think abortion should be legal. What an utter disgrace.”
