Fox News reports a new protest prohibition statute in the United Kingdom was responsible for arresting a British woman praying outside an abortion center. The woman told Fox News she feared her situation would not be the last incident in the U.K. The woman involved in the incident is Isabel Vaughan-Spruce, who appeared on the “Tucker Carlson Tonight” show. Vaughan-Spruce explained that the anti-protest policy includes the type of behavior she exhibited outside the abortion clinic. She said silent prayer is something she was done for a while and that dozens of women have continued their pregnancies after accepting her help. Vaughan-Spruce said, “In September this year, the local council in Birmingham brought in this censorship zone, this PSPO - formerly these were used for dog fouling and drunken behavior and things like that.” “But they’re now popping up around the country surrounding abortion centers, and they banned behavior like protesting, but it also named prayer and counseling as forms of protesting.” [tweet_embed]December 26, 2022[/tweet_embed] “Four times, I stood near the closed abortion center and silently prayed there. And as you can see, the police came and asked me if I was protesting, which I wasn’t. They asked me if I was praying, and I said I might be silently praying. I was arrested.” She added that once arrested, authorities placed her in a cell and questioned her about the subject of the prayers. Vaughan-Spruce was released on bail with the understanding that she was scheduled for a February court appearance regarding four counts of protesting and taking part in an act that intimidated service users. [tweet_embed]December 26, 2022[/tweet_embed] Vaughan-Spruce noted that she had received support from both sides of the debate, including advocates supporting abortion rights with concerns about the law. “That in itself is very discouraging to hear, that it’s not necessarily about people who support abortion or don’t support abortion. This is more to do with freedom of thought here.” “It’s even gone further than freedom of prayer. I mean, we all talk about the cancel culture and the concerns we have about people being canceled [for] speaking in public.” Vaughan-Spruce described the ordeal as surreal and compared it to the “1984” novel written by George Orwell. Tucker-Carlson said the incident with Vaughan-Spruce and the police was an “act of evil” and called on British officials, including the Prime Minister, not to stand around silently.
