Clare Murphy, Director of External Affairs at bpas, said:
"In targeting women on the day they know many will be travelling to access the care they are denied at home these groups aren't showing respect for human life, but utter disregard for the lives of women. The live-streaming on Facebook is a tactic deliberately designed to intimidate and threaten, by making women fear their identity will be compromised. These protesters have every right to campaign against the reform of abortion law that public opinion increasingly supports - but to treat women in this way is quite simply contemptible."
