Meet Grayson and Tina Haver.

This American husband-and-wife team have found an ingenious way to spend their Saturdays: counter-picketing protests outside abortion clinics in North Carolina.

Their signs are, frankly, hilarious.

This is a picture from their first ever counter-protest, and their explanation of how they got started:

Grayson and I both grew up not too far away, and we’ve seen the clinic in question hundreds of times. But for some reason, on this morning in particular, the protestors got under our skin a little more than normal. Grayson suggested that we make a sign that said “Weird Hobby” and point at one of the protestors.

They've been documenting their adventures on their Saturdaychores blog which has gone viral.

Even George Takei likes them.

And now they've inspired others, like this woman in San Francisco.

Anti-abortion protesters are also active in the UK, and have previously handed out plastic foetuses, anti-abortion leaflets and held up graphic images near clinics.
