Abortion rights campaigners have expressed concern that livestreaming could be used to publicly shame people seeking abortions, after an anti-abortion group used Facebook Live to broadcast a recent demonstration outside a clinic.
Abort67, which regularly uses graphic images of aborted foetuses in its protests, held a demonstration outside Hastings railway station on Friday to launch a new local branch of the group. The station is situated directly opposite a British Pregnancy Advisory Service (BPAS) clinic, a leading provider of abortion services.
