Women using Alberta abortion clinics are facing increasing amounts of intimidation by protesters and the Province is looking to put a stop to it.

Health Minister Sarah Hoffman will introduce legislation Thursday, April 5, aimed at establishing "no-go zones" around clinics, which will stop protesters from shaming, harassing, and bullying vulnerable women.

Hoffman won't discuss the specifics of the legislation until it's been introduced.

B.C., Ontario, Quebec and Newfoundland already have similar laws in place.
