Abortion protestors showed up at Joel Osteen’s Church in Houston, Texas this past Sunday (June 5, 2022) apparently to protest the leak of a draft decision of the Supreme Court that would overturn Roe vs Wade, CBN reports.
If the leaked draft proves to be the Supreme Court’s final decision, it would return the decision on abortion to the state legislatures.
Apparently, three of the women involved videoed their protest at Lakewood church and then posted it on their website, Rise Up 4 Abortion Rights.
The video reveals that the congregation was standing as Joel Osteen led in prayer prior to his message, and the moment the congregation sat down, one of the women remained standing.
She then lifted her dress over her head, exposing both her bra and undergarment while shouting “It’s my body! My f—–g choice!”
As the woman continues to shout, “It’s my body! My choice!,” two women sitting beside her also took off their clothes and shouted, “Overturn Roe, h— no!”
The protest lasted about 43 seconds, before church security ushered the three women out of the church, as the congregation applauded drowning out their shouts.
KHOU TV reported that the three women then joined dozens of protestors who had gathered outside the church.
The fundamental issue of abortion revolves around whether the baby in the womb has any rights. In May, the US Senate unsuccessfully tried to pass a law that would allow abortion up to the moment of birth.
So one day the baby is not considered human and can be legally killed, and the next day it can’t?
For some abortion extremists, it is no longer a discussion about baby rights and when life begins, but about allowing abortion on demand at any time and for any reason.
There has been a dramatic shift in our culture in recent years, and those extreme left are becoming much more authoritarian.
Will Christians be forced to support causes they don’t agree with?
Ironically, the day before the Lakewood Service, five Tampa Bay Ray players found themselves in hot water, when they decided to remove the team’s rainbow logos that team officials had put on the player’s hats. The rainbow-colored TBR logos were intended to show support for the team’s “LBGTQ Pride Night” on Saturday, June 4, 2022.
The team gave players the choice of whether they wanted to wear Pride logos on their hats, or not.
Five players chose not to based on their religious convictions.
However, they didn’t then put stickers on their hat opposing “LBGTQ Pride Night”, they simply decided NOT to support it.
And this is what the uproar was about.

We are living in a society that is becoming increasingly hostile to Christian views. Some feel that people should be forced to support causes that they don’t personally believe in or agree with.
And this pressure will only increase.
We are entering troubling times, and like Joshua, we must make our decisions in advance that we will serve the Lord.
“ And if it is evil in your eyes to serve the Lord, choose this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your fathers served in the region beyond the River, or the gods of the Amorites in whose land you dwell. But as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.” (Joshua 24:15 ESV)
We can’t leave that decision to the moment when we find ourselves embroiled in controversy.
