Council considers anti-abortion protest ban


A council in London will decide this evening whether to ban pro-life protesters from approaching women who are wanting to terminate pregnancies at a Marie Stopes clinic. Local residents’ have signed a 3,000-signature petition calling for the pro-life protests to be banned after some women attending the clinic complained that some of the protesters had harassed them. Ealing Council could use legislation designed to stop anti-social behaviour to keep the anti-abortion protesters away.
