Anti Abortion Protests in London

According to my good friend at Anglofille, there were signs of American style protests outside a abortion clinic in London a few months ago. Protestors were gathered outside the Central London Day Surgery Unit, in Bedford Square, protesting against the right to abortion. As part of the demonstration, the protestors were holding aloft a plastic fetus as well as various posters and were apparently praying outside the clinic. Although it was only a small group, it is a worrying sign of an increased use of shock tactics to get the message across to the general public. I'll be interested to know if anyone else has observed similar tactics by anti-abortion groups.
