伯恩茅斯。不斷有人要求在墮胎診所設立緩衝區

一個委員會被敦促 "儘快 "為參加墮胎診所的婦女提供一個受保護的空間。

來自BPAS的Rachel Clarke說,五年多來,他們一直呼籲BCP理事會對診所外的日常守夜活動採取行動。

該局表示,它正在研究各種方案,以 "考慮未來的方向"。

"2017年,我與診所、理事會和警方坐下來,尋找解決方案,但絕對沒有發生任何事情。

支持選擇的運動者曾希望緩衝區會成為常態,但自2018年伊靈的緩衝區以來,英格蘭只建立了兩個緩衝區。

反墮胎運動者站在奧菲爾路(Ophir Road)的伯恩茅斯診所的入口附近,因此任何到達或離開的人都必須走過他們。

該組織已向議會申請公共空間保護令(PSPO)--一種受法律保護的空間--以 "儘快 "在診所周圍建立一個緩衝區。

該電子請願書吸引了超過2300個簽名--足以使其被提交給議會全體會議進行辯論。

在一份聲明中,BCP理事會說。"我們正在敲定一個方案評估,不久將提交給有關各方,以考慮未來的發展方向。

"其中之一是就伯恩茅斯BPAS診所附近的PSPO進行公眾諮詢。


A council is being urged to bring in a protected space for women attending an abortion clinic "as soon as possible".

Rachel Clarke, from BPAS, said they have been calling on BCP Council for action over the daily vigils outside the clinic for more than five years.

The authority said it was looking at options to "consider the way forward".

"In 2017 I sat down with the clinic, the council and the police to find a solution, absolutely nothing has happened.

Pro-choice campaigners had hoped buffer zones would become the norm but only two more have been created in England since Ealing's in 2018.

Anti-abortion campaigners stand near the entrance of the Bournemouth clinic in Ophir Road so that anyone arriving or leaving has to walk past them.

The group has petitioned the council for a Public Space Protection Order (PSPO) - a legally-protected space - to create a buffer zone around the clinic "as soon as possible".

The e-petition attracted more than 2,300 signatures - enough for it to be referred for debate at a meeting of the full council.

In a statement, BCP Council said: "We are in the process of finalising an options appraisal which will be presented to the interested parties shortly to consider the way forward.

"One of which is to launch public consultation on a PSPO for the vicinity immediately around the Bournemouth BPAS Clinic.
