Christian Hacking was arrested while praying

Wheelchair user, Christian Hacking was praying outside the Marie Stopes clinic. They called the police, and the police warned Hacking that he was in breach of the Public Space Protection Order around the clinic. As he prayed he told the officers: ‘I don’t think you have a constitutional right to stop someone from praying, so I’m going to continue praying here until you remove me, forcibly ... what’s more important is that God’s law is upheld in this nation and not the law of those who govern this nation and not this ludicrous law that says people can’t pray’.
