MP tries to criminalise pro-life demonstrations

Feb 27, 2020 by

from Christian Concern:

Pro-life campaigner, Christian Hacking, 29, was issued with a Community Protection Notice (CPN) for peacefully demonstrating the reality of abortion, after MP Stella Creasy demanded an anti-social behaviour injunction on the employee of Centre for Bioethical Reform UK (CBR UK).

Christian is set to appear in court this Wednesday to appeal the injunction, which was issued back in October 2019 by Waltham Forest Council after the pro-life group were showing pictures of the realities of abortion in the MP’s constituency as part of their #StopStella campaign.

MP demands local council intervenes

In response to the campaign, Stella Creasy MP, who is vehemently pro-abortion, demanded that the police and local council intervene to prevent Christian and other local volunteers from publicly criticising her extreme abortion proposals in Walthamstow.

The CPN issued to Christian, which has dubbed the ‘new ASBO’, is thought to be the first borough-wide restriction on displaying medically-approved images of unborn and aborted babies. Breaching the notice is a criminal offence.

No crime committed

Waltham Forest Council claimed that the images were responsible for “unreasonable behaviour that was persistent in nature” and had “a detrimental effect on the quality of life of others.”

However, despite pressure from Stella Creasy, the Metropolitan Police took no action against the group, saying that no crime had been committed.
