Amber Rudd: Ensure a Fair & Open Review into Prolife Presence Outside Abortion Centres
In recent months, we have seen the prolife voice being stifled on multiple fronts, whether at universities, in the media or, most recently, outside abortion centres.
In response to the vote by Ealing and Portsmouth Council to ‘take action’ on prayer vigils outside of Marie Stopes in Ealing, the Home Secretary, Amber Rudd, has said that she will launch a review into the prolife presence outside of abortion centres.
If done correctly, this move should be welcomed by all sides of the debate, as it provides an opportunity to prove what is really happening outside of abortion centres.
If genuine harassment was taking place, this should come to light and it should end.
Equally, the testimonies of women who are grateful for the help they have received from those attending prayer vigils should also come to light.
This, however, is only possible if a fair and open review takes place.
At present, the Home Office have not outlined that they will consult with women who have been assisted by prolifers outside of abortion centres. Therefore, we need to ensure that the Home Secretary does so.
One of the groups conducting the vigils maintain that “3000 babies had been spared abortion” since the group began 20 years ago. For the sake of fairness, it is necessary for Amber Rudd to speak with the mothers of these children, in order for the truth to come to light.
Please sign this petition asking for a fair and open review which ensures that the voices of those who have benefitted from these vigils are heard.
