Anti-abortion campaigners to target Worthing College

The Argus: Worthing College Worthing College

Anti-abortion campaigners are set to continue protests outside sixth form colleges across Sussex.

Abort 67 have alerted Sussex Police they plan to demonstrate at the junction of Sanditon Way and Hill Barn Lane outside Worthing College today.

Police have advised students if they wish to avoid the demonstrators to use the inner footpath and cycle path on the college campus and also warned them if they wish to engage with campaigners to be mindful of traffic and keep safely on pavements.

The protest comes a week after police were called to a similar protest by the group outside BHASVIC College in Hove.

LOL! I expect the Argus was worried about displaying a picture of a real-life college as it actually presently is, rather than representing the colege as an amorphous cluster of buildings, at a much earlier stage of the college's development than now. A stage when the college merely had the future potential, one day, to become more easily recognised by one and all as a fully-fledged college. I expect the Argus feared that too much photographic accuracy and stark reality in the form of an up-to-date photo of the college, might attract venomous and unfair criticisms of harassing certain female readers emotionally, at a vulnerable time when many of them were trying to decide whether to attend college now, or to abor... I mean to WITHDRAW their applications to study at the college, taking a gap year first instead,

Of course, the college actually began its legal existence when it's unique founding document was executed, which was long before any recognisable bricks and mortar campus buildings became visible on the landscape.
