Sickening behaviour

MPs from across the political spectrum have previously warned that "bullying, fear and aggression" outside Parliament is threatening democracy.

This week Labour MP Jess Phillips tweeted: "I'm not scared of an election, I am scared I might be hurt or killed" after she received a death threat. Days later, a man allegedly attempted to break into her constituency office.

The abuse targeted at Ms Creasy follows the approval from MPs of her amendment to extend abortion rights to Northern Ireland - the only part of the UK where it is illegal. The vote passed by 332 to 99.

Ms Creasy reported the poster incident to police and tweeted: "Feel physically sick". She said police told her they would not use PSPO [public spaces protection orders] powers. These are used to move protesters on when a particular nuisance in a specific area is having a negative effect on quality of life.

The Metropolitan police told The Guardian they were in attendance at the protest on Saturday but no arrests took place. They had not receive any complaints about the contents of leaflets or posters at the event.

The mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, said the actions were "sickening". In a tweet, he said: "Whilst the right to peaceful protest must be respected, behaviour that deliberately targets women for harassment and intimidation should not be tolerated."

According to Ms Creasy, she was the target of such abuse because she is pregnant and people were accusing her of hypocrisy.

In response to a tweet that the Centre for Bio-Ethical Reform campaign demonstrates the humanity of the unborn child, Ms Creasy tweeted: "I have one inside me right now of the size you dare to claim on your posters and leaflets you gave out today I want to kill and your people admit they are deliberately targeting me because I am pregnant. There is nothing dignified, Christian or humane about that."

Standing up for equality

The Centre for Bio-Ethical Reform website includes criticism of Mrs Creasy and what they see as her double standards.

Ruth Rawlins, a spokesperson for CBR UK, said: "By removing sections 58 and 59 of the Offences Against the Person Act, [Creasy] will remove all legal protection for the unborn child up to 28 weeks. This is a human rights abuse which needs to be called out. We have come to Walthamstow to communicate this to her constituents."

Ms Creasy's amendment proposed that abortion laws in Northern Ireland, where women needing a termination could face life imprisonment, breached international human rights norms.

She told MPs: “How much longer are the women of Northern Ireland expected to wait? How much more are they expected to suffer before we speak up – the best of what this place does – as human rights defenders, not human rights deniers?”

After the vote, Creasy tweeted: “Thank you to everyone who today stood up for equality in Northern Ireland – whether for same-sex marriage or abortion, today we have said everyone in the UK deserves to be treated as an equal. There’s a road to go yet but today is a big step forward.”

How Our Government Has Betrayed Women Seeking Abortions .
All over England and Wales, abortion clinics are being targeted by anti-choice, anti-abortion and, ultimately, anti-women protestors. It often goes unreported and the scenes witnessed by clinic staff, pro-choice activists and service users alike are fraught. In 2018, Ealing council became the first to implement a no-protest ‘buffer zone’ around the Marie Stopes West London clinic. That buffer zone prevents anti-abortion protestors from coming within 100 metres of the clinic. The move was hailed as a huge and hopeful step forward for the protection of women seeking abortion services against a backdrop of abuse.
