Pro-Abortion Activists Strip to Underwear, Yell Obscenities While Joel Osteen Preaches

Three female activists tore their dresses off to expose their underwear in Houston's Lakewood Church on Sunday morning.

"It's my body, my [expletive] choice!" the first blonde-haired protester yelled in the video posted to Twitter by Now This.

Two other women followed suit, stripping down and screaming, "Overturn Roe, [expletive] no!" and, "My body! My choice!"

As security escorted the three protesters out of the building, some in the congregation cheered for their removal.

After the women from Texas Rise Up 4 Abortion Rights were taken outside, a dozen other protesters joined them while one of the women continued her rant through a portable microphone and speaker. "We're here today to break the silence and stand up," she said. "Because Christians are not afraid to bother us at health care clinics, at doctor's offices trying to get essential health care. So why the [expletive] wouldn't we bother you in your own home where the laws are coming from?"

According to the posted video, the shocking disruption to the church's services lasted approximately 43 seconds.

The three women were also waving green bandanas. According to the pro-abortion group's website, the green bandana is a symbol of abortion rights that came from Latin America. The group calls for fighting for abortion on demand and without apology.

The abortion group also claims in a statement that the three women who interrupted the Lakewood Church's services "were acting on the orientation" posted on their website, which states "people in our millions [must] make clear, through massive non-violent resistance, that we will bring the gears of society to a grinding halt before we allow the Supreme Court to overturn Roe v. Wade."

The group also posted a tweet of a large green banner with the words "Overturn Roe? [Expletive] No!" that they unveiled from the top of a bleacher section in Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles, California, during the Dodgers-Mets game Sunday.

After a draft of the Supreme Court's majority opinion was leaked last month, abortion activists have staged die-ins, loud protests at the homes of Supreme Court justices, and used other tactics to intimidate, shame and humiliate their opposition.

Rise Up 4 Abortion Rights says on their Twitter page, "Together through our struggle we can win Abortion On Demand & Without Apology. FORCED MOTHERHOOD IS FEMALE ENSLAVEMENT."

They encourage their followers to "bring this society to a halt" and to "raise hell."
