The UK High Court upheld a special order banning prayer and Scripture reading outside an abortion clinic in Bournemouth, England.

Christian campaigners lost a legal challenge against the enforcement of the Public Spaces Protection Order.

The judges ruled that the protests caused harm and interfered with the rights of women attending the clinic. (Trending: Democrat Targets U.S. Troops With New Gun Control Law)

“It is, in our judgment, naïve and simplistic to suggest that activities of this kind in this context cannot be considered ‘detrimental’… just because they are silent,” wrote Lord Justice Warby and Mrs. Justice Thompson.

Warby And Thompson said disruptions in human rights were “justified by the legitimate aim of protecting the rights of women attending the clinic, their associates and the staff.”

Christian groups, including 40 Days for Life and Christian Concern, expressed disappointment and plan to appeal.

The ruling has sparked debate on the balance between abortion rights and freedom of religion and speech.

Despite the setback, the Christian organizations remain committed to their cause.

Andrea Williams, CEO of Christian Concern, said, “Peaceful witness near abortion centers are helpful to many women in crisis pregnancies, offering genuine choice by providing support.”

“Whatever the guidance or law says, arresting peaceful pro-lifers in these zones clearly breaches their human rights,” continued the activist.

Livia Tossici-Bolt, who leads 40 Days for Life, said her organization was, “very disappointed by the judge’s ruling and will continue to support women in crisis pregnancies and will continue to fight for justice.”
