BBC News – Ealing abortion clinic protest ban: Appeal lodged
Campaigners have lodged a High Court appeal against a council’s ban on protests outside an abortion clinic.
The Public Spaces Protection Order came into force on Monday after reports of “intimidation and harassment” for women using the Marie Stopes clinic in Ealing, west London.
The Be Here For Me group said the ban “criminalises prayer and support outside an abortion clinic”.
A designated area for vigils has been set up outside the buffer zone.
