An evangelical group has ramped up demonstrations outside several Brisbane abortion clinics as Queensland prepares to reform its 1899 laws that make abortion a criminal offence.
Guardian Australia is aware of several recent verbal clashes between members of the anti-abortion group “Project 139” and clinic patients. The group has sought and received permits to conduct protests at four Brisbane clinics until at least August.
In response, Pro Choice Queensland has also taken to the streets, mobilising volunteers who carry purple umbrellas outside clinics and escort women safely past protesters.
