Two MPs are currently bringing forward bills to introduce buffer zones around abortion facilities to ban peaceful pro-life vigils.
On 24 June 2020, a huge majority (213 – 47) of MPs voted in favour of Dr Rupa Huq MP’s Ten-Minute Rule Bill “to restrict demonstrations in the vicinity of abortion clinics”. This Bill comes up for second reading in the House of Commons on 25 September.
Sarah Olney MP is also introducing a similar bill on 30 October.
Neither bill is likely to move forward at this time. However, it shows that the abortion lobby is determined to keep pushing to ban pro-lifers from offering crucial last minute help, to women in need.

and sign the petition. Please share the petition with friends and family via email and social media. Pro-life vigils outside abortion clinics can save unborn lives. The offer of help from a caring pro-life person is a lifeline for many women, who feel abortion is their only choice. Pro-life citizens have a right to gather peacefully and women have a right to receive the information they offer Abortion clinic buffer zones would set a dangerous precedent for freedom of speech in the UK.
