Should protests outside abortion clinics be banned?

 

Campaigners and charities have united in calls for the creation of protest-free ‘buffer zones’ outside abortion clinics.

The moves follow an increase in so-called ‘vigils’ held by anti-abortionists outside healthcare facilities.

Campaigners say there are intimidatory and amount to harassment.

They have backed a bill by Scottish Green MSP Gillian Mackay to create buffer zones outside healthcare facilities where protests would not be allowed.

This is why we are asking: do you support the proposals? Should protests outside abortion clinics be banned?
