Defending the right to public witness
The Home Secretary, Amber Rudd, has launched a national consultation - “Abortion Clinic Protest Review” - seeking the views of those “who have experience of protest activity outside abortion clinics”.
The Society for the Protection of Unborn Children is appealing to anyone who takes part in pro-life vigils to respond to this consultation.
If you would like to respond please read these Briefing Notes. There is a link from the notes to the survey itself.
It is important that as many people as possible respond, not only to protect the rights of the unborn and those who speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves, but also to defend the right of freedom to bear public witness in our society.
