CBN reports that UK’s thought police have arrested a woman for praying in her head near an abortion clinic in Birmingham, UK.
The city has created a perimeter around abortion clinics, called a censorship zone, where people can not show their approval or disapproval of abortions and this includes praying and counselling
Vaughan-Spruce, who is the director of UK March for Life, was standing silently near an abortion clinic in the city.
She was not carrying anything like a sign that would indicate she was protesting against the clinic.
But someone had complained to police that they believed Vaughan-Spruce was silently praying in her head within the zone.
The police approached Vaughn-Spruce and asked if she was praying in her head. She was immediately arrested after telling police she might be.
The Alliance Defending Freedom UK (ADFUK) is representing Vaughn-Spruce in the court case over illegal thoughts.
Speaking on behalf of ADFUK, Jeremiah Igunnubole said:
“Isabel’s experience should be deeply concerning to all those who believe that our hard-fought fundamental rights are worth protecting. It is truly astonishing that the law has granted local authorities such wide and unaccountable discretion, that now even thoughts deemed ‘wrong’ can lead to a humiliating arrest and a criminal charge.”
