I have been contacted about protests at abortion clinics.
This country has a proud history of allowing free speech but the right to peaceful protest does not extend to harassment or threatening behaviour.
While I do not want to see peaceful protest curbed, it is completely unacceptable that anyone should feel harassed or intimidated simply for exercising their legal right to healthcare advice and treatment. The decision to have an abortion is already an incredibly personal one, without women being further pressured by aggressive protesters.
I am glad that the Government keeps this area under review and I know Ministers ensure they keep up to date with any new evidence that comes to light.
