Be Here For Me

On 23 April 2018, Ealing Council introduced a Public Spaces Protection Order (PSPO) outside of an abortion centre in West London which made it a criminal offence to pray or offer support to women entering the centre. The PSPO prevents the local pro-life vigil from appearing within 100 meters of the clinic, despite over 20 years of the vigil operating peacefully without a single arrest.

Abortion Provider BPAS (British Pregnancy Advisory Service) has been campaigning to establish ‘buffer zones’ (or more appropriately, censorship zones) outside of abortion clinics by saying that those involved in pro-life vigils are frequently involved in the harassment and intimidation of women.
