#BackOffScotland is a campaign group fighting for the right to harassment-free access to abortion services in Scotland. We want the Scottish government to create 150m buffer zones around clinics that provide abortion services. #BackOffScotland works with and supports the aims of the UK-wide Back Off Coalition which is co-ordinated by the British Pregnancy Advisory Service (BPAS). Our focus is national legislation, under the mission statement "For the right to harassment free access to abortion services in Scotland."

In the light of the return of anti-choice activity outside abortion clinics despite COVID-19 guidelines, we are petitioning the Scottish government to create buffer zones around abortion clinics. Ultimately, we aim to instill nationawide buffer zones.



“They were saying prayers, engaging, making me feel guilty, uncomfortable, intimidated – like a sinner because they asked my religion. They made me question my decision, but I came back anyway.”
