Restrict the Display of Graphic Material at DHSC properties around the Isle of Man
This petition had 1,143 supporters
Protest groups such as Abort67 have taken to protesting at Nobles Hospital using graphic images that are both offensive and potentially upsetting to patients, staff and visitors at Nobles Hospital.
This petition calls for the Isle of Man Government, Department of Health and Social Care and Health Minister David Ashford MHK to introduce restrictions on groups like Abort67 displaying graphic images at Nobles Hospital and other Department of Health and Social Care properties around the Isle of Man.
Hospitals are places for healthcare and not a political playground for protest groups. With the soon to be introduced Abortion Reform Bill 2018 this issue will only become more prevalent and problematic as seen by protests at abortion clinics in the UK. Patients and staff have a right to be able to attend the hospital without fear of harassment or intimidation.
With the lack of intervention during the most recent display by Abort67 it is clear that current rules and laws are not adequate to protect staff, patients and visitors.
