Diane Abbott response to Sajid Javid’s rejection of abortion clinic buffer zones

Diane Abbott MP, Labour’s Shadow Home Secretary, responding to Sajid Javid’s rejection of calls to introduce buffer zones outside abortion clinics, said:

“The Home Secretary has given the green light for women to be harassed and abused for exercising their right to choose.

“This is a disgusting failure to uphold women’s rights over their own bodies. Sajid Javid must urgently reconsider.”
