Here we go again: should someone’s right to tell their personal story be abridged for the sake of someone else? In this case, a woman is trying to stop her ex-husband from telling his history of child sexual abuse for fear their child will be distraught to read the father’s experiences.

Ian Cobain and Matthew Taylor report:

A British performing artist has been forced to shelve a book based on his experiences of childhood sexual abuse after his ex-wife obtained an injunction to prevent their young son from reading it.

In a case that is alarming freedom of speech campaigners and which publishers say is deeply disturbing, the court of appeal has ordered that the artist cannot publish key sections of the book until the issue has been decided at trial.
