Police also issued an apology to Isabel Vaughan-Spruce, the director of the UK March for Life, for the length of time it took to reach the decision not to prosecute her for silent prayer. In March, the charity volunteer was arrested after she told police she “might” be praying silently when they asked why she was standing on a public street near an abortion facility.

The abortion clinic was in a so-called “buffer zone,” which was introduced by local authorities via a “Public Spaces Protection Order” and bans activities, such as prayer, that are considered a protest against abortion. …

“Silent prayer is never criminal,” she said. “I welcome West Midland Police’s decision to end their investigation and their apology for the time it took to do so, but it’s important to highlight the extremely harmful implications of this ordeal not just for myself, but for everyone concerned with fundamental freedoms in the UK.”

“What happened to me signals to others that they too could face arrest, interrogation, investigation, and potential prosecution if caught exercising their basic freedom of thought,” she added.

Vaughan-Spruce is currently considering options to pursue redress for her treatment by police with support from Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF) UK, which has been supporting her legal defense. …

A few seconds of SILENT, private prayer. Maybe a few minutes.
It takes these cops and officials across the Pond six months to concede that no offense was done.
Such are those who “rule” in this dark world now.
LORD the Almighty, I call You to look. To see. To hear. And to judge.
You are all we have, because You are all there is. LORD, look and see what they have done.
And render Your judgment in accordance with Your righteousness and justice.
Thank You for vindicating Your maidservant there. Thank You. Now, these “officials” need to be dealt with. Let it be so.
