Anti-abortionists challenged

Anti-abortion group Abort67 appeared outside Sussex University campus on 6 March, giving only several hours notice of their unwanted arrival.

The group of seven people (mostly men over 40) carried with them a large banner with graphic, distressing images of abortions and similar leaflets that they attempted to distribute.

They were met by about 100 Sussex students aiming to confront and disband the group.

Though they refused to leave immediately it was a victory that there was such strong opposition to this regressive group.

As a vehement pro choice person, who worked in abortion for years I struggle to understand why so many are squeamish about the reality of abortion. Yes its distressing for women attending clinics to see graphic images, but are we really saying women are so feeble they need to be protected from the reality of abortion? And frankly a demo of 7 sounds a bit feeble and not worth hyping up.
