Healthcare is a right, and nobody should have to face harassment or intimidation when accessing it. Tell the Scottish Parliament that it's time to introduce buffer zones around abortion clinics by signing the petition.

70% of women of reproductive age live in a health board area that has hospitals or clinics that have been targeted by anti-choice groups in the past 5 years.

Clinicians tell us about the severe impact this has on patients, including those accessing abortions, rape counselling, sexual health services, and broader healthcare services that share the same campus.

Urgent action is needed to make sure everyone can access healthcare freely and safely.

Scottish Green MSP Gillian Mackay has launched a member's bill that will create buffer zones around abortion clinics, ending anti-abortion activity in these areas and making it a criminal offence to harass people there.

But to make this a reality we need your help. Sign the petition and tell the Scottish Parliament it's time to act.
