Demonstrations (Abortion Clinics) — 24 Jun 2020 at 12:50

That leave be given to bring in a Bill to restrict demonstrations in the vicinity of abortion clinics; and for connected purposes.
“introducing national buffer zones would not be a proportionate response.”
“legislation already exists to restrict protest activities that cause harm to others.”
"The main activities that were reported to us that take place during protests include: praying; displaying banners; and handing out leaflets. There were relatively few reports of the more aggressive activities"
“In this country, it is a long-standing tradition that people are free to gather together and to demonstrate their views. This is something to be rightly proud of.”
“for the criminalisation of a very broad range of conduct”,
“to get rid of these over-broad and under-scrutinised powers.”
“I felt that I did have a choice. I can choose, yes or no.”
