Victorian Upper House passes abortion clinic protest buffer zone law

A ban on protesters going within 150 metres of abortion clinics has become law in Victoria after the upper house voted overwhelmingly in favour of the bill.

“Thanks to the bill, women making personal and often difficult health decisions in relation to pregnancy can expect the same degree of privacy, safety and dignity that all Victorians are entitled to when accessing health services,” Rita Butera, Executive Director of Women’s Health Victoria, said.
