Green MP Jan Logie says it is worth debating whether New Zealand should introduce a no-protest zone around abortion clinics, similar to those enforced in some Australian states.

Logie and Catherine Delahunty recently attended a meeting in Thames organised by people concerned about anti-abortion protesters who protest outside the Thames Hospital abortion clinic on Fridays.

After the meeting, Right to Life put out a statement saying the Greens would try to push for a law change which banned protesting outside abortion clinics, like some Australian states.
