Anti-abortion protesters return to Hatfield surgery
Anti-abortion, or pro-life, activists have returned to protest outside a Hatfield surgery today.
The protesters, who go to Wrafton House surgery in Wellfield Road most weeks, were seen praying and distributing leaflets.
A Hatfield woman said she was a "bit uncomfortable walking by pictures of dead babies".
The pro-life activists, from the St Albans-based Helpers UK group, have links to members of the Roman Catholic Church.
Lucia Federici, who was one of the group's members praying outside, said most people are positive.

She said she objects to abortion in all cases, but said it is more complicated when the life of the mother is at risk.
"It is still better to deliver a dead baby then for a mother to have it taken out of her," she said.
Ms Federici said she does not just believe this because she is a Catholic, but her faith does inform everything she does.
"All human life is sacred," she said.
