Bournemouth residents: share your views on an abortion clinic buffer zone

Bournemouth council have launched consultation over plans for a buffer zone outside an abortion clinic. Local residents are being encouraged to respond to the consultation on whether to implement a buffer zone outside the BPAS clinic in Bournemouth.

Bournemouth Council said the aim of the buffer zone would be “to protect the staff and visitors who have been affected by the behaviour of those who congregate, hold vigils and protest outside”. This includes anti-abortion protesters.

The consultation opened a few weeks ago and closes at midnight on 31 August 2022.

The Guardian is keen to hear from residents in Bournemouth on the issue of buffer zones.
