The Ship Of Death
The Dutch abortion ship made waves upon its arrival in other ways too. For one, the Langenort crew was greeted by police and customs officials who boarded the boat and sealed their stash of abortion pills in order to prevent their distribution in Poland, where they are illegal. More notably the Langenort was met at the quayside by 200 protesters who reportedly hailed the unwelcome vessel with red paint and eggs. (A few of the protestors, obviously with a sense of humor, later released a bucketful of rodents onto the ship while it was docked at port.) Consequently, the Polish welcome wagon was vilified by mainstream European media outlets as angry,fierce,irate,outraged,abusive,and insulting. They were labeled ultra-conservative and reactionary.
Given the extraordinary situation after all, an unwelcome boat was launched from a foreign land to dock in Poland for the express purpose of subverting the countrys laws is their righteous indignation not understandable and justified, even healthy? Women on Waves unapologetically trumpeted their intentions across Europe even before the Langenort put to sea. Consequently, the Polish protestors saw the voyage for what it was: an invasion
The Nationalist resistance is not confined to former-Soviet Bloc Poland, news is Portugal, the most literally Western country of continental Europe used its Navy to bloc the invasion:
Lisbon, Portugal (LifeNews.com) -- Portuguese officials used their navy on Sunday to prevent the Dutch abortion boat from entering waters controlled by the western European country in order to distribute abortion drugs.
The "Dutch Abortion Ship" has also travelled to Ireland ( the other Western country that outlaws abortion) where it only met vocal resistance, and also set sail for many countries in Africa and Latin America. I wonder why these "daring" and "bold" Western death missionaries do not set sail for pre-dominantly Muslim countries, which all vehemently ban abortion? Maybe it's because, sadly, the Muslims may be the one religious group of people left in this world who still know how to defend themselves from a foreign invader?
