This is a great idea! 40 Days of Harassment has begun. Here's a push-back a 'regular person' in the UK started that needs to go international.
Instead of -- or maybe in addition to -- the usual counter-rallies at abortion clinics, pro-choicers are asked to participate in 40 Days of Treats.
Blogger Squeamish Bikini explains.
The 40 Days for Life people are back in the UK. Funnily enough I am not going to link to them. For those who need filling in these people hold vigil for 40 days outside clinics where abortions are performed in the hope of deterring people going in. Pro-Choicers have had a rather marvellous idea. Instead of holding debates or protesting the pro-life vigil, Pro-Choice people have organised their own 40 days.
Apparently coming out of nowhere, a Tumblr has been set up urging people to take treats in a show of support for those working at BPAS and other such charities. Squeamish Bikini thinks this is just bloody lovely and will cheer those who are just trying to do their job.
If you want to take part you can find out where your nearest clinic is at here and go deliver them a treat to brighten their day.
The 40 Days of Treats begins now. Pass it on.
Squeamish Bikini includes a link to a list of UK clinics.

Or, just contribute some kind words of appreciation and support on Twitter @40daysoftreats.
As Squeamish says: Pass it on.
