Anti-abortion protest at clinics

Demonstrations sometimes take place at all abortion clinics in the Netherlands by action groups, including “Schreeuw om leven” (Scream for life), for example. This is a fundamentalist Christian group against abortion.

When demonstrators stand at a clinic, they mostly approach clients first with the question if they can ask a question or offer them something (a folder). If the client says “no” and keeps on walking, they must leave you alone. If the demonstrators do not do that, you can file a complaint with the clinic. The clinics can use such complaints to go to the police to record the behaviour.
