Silent Christian prayer is now ILLEGAL in many British streets. So-called Public Spaces Protection Orders are being enforced to protect baby-killing abortion clinics from any interruption of their profitable business. Everything is banned - ranging from actual pro-life protests through offering advice to women being pressured into abortions they don't want, and right on to Christians offering silent prayers for the innocent victims of abortion.
The latest person to fall foul of these draconian regulations is an Army veteran who was questioned for 'silently praying' for his 'dead son' outside an abortion clinic. He is now fighting a £100 council fine for breaching an order banning protests around the site.
Adam Smith-Connor, a 49-year-old physiotherapist from Southampton, was approached by two council officers as he stood on the pavement outside the BPAS clinic on Ophir Road in Bournemouth.
Mr Smith-Connor, whose girlfriend had an abortion two decades ago, told the officers he was 'praying for my son', but one of them claimed he was in breach of the terms of a Public Spaces Protection Order (PSPO).
The footage of Mr Smith-Connor, who served in the military for 20 years and has a daughter, 10, and a seven-year-old daughter, was filmed on November 24 last year.
He said: '22 years ago I drove my ex-girlfriend to a facility and paid for her to have an abortion. It was a pivotal moment in my life.
'The consequences of my actions that day came back to grieve me years later, when I realised I had lost my son Jacob to an abortion I had paid for.
'Recently, I stood outside a similar facility and prayed to God for my son Jacob, for other babies who have lost their lives to abortion, for their grieving families, and for abortion clinic staff.'
