-U.S. Supreme Court Rules in Favor of Free Speech and Pro-Lifers

by Dr. D ~ June 27th, 2014

The US Supreme Court yesterday unanimously struck down a Massachusetts law that limited free speech within 35 feet of an abortion clinic.

The intent was to deny access to pro-life counselors and demonstrators on public sidewalks in the immediate vicinity of an abortion facility.

Here’s the story from the Citizen Link:

Signed in 2007, the law required a 35-foot “buffer zone” around abortion sellers. Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF) filed suit a year later on behalf of a group pro-lifers. The group, many of whom are grandparents, simply want to provide information on abortion alternatives, and offer support to those who want it. …

In today’s ruling, the nation’s high court underscores the pro-lifers’ constitutional rights to share their ideas in public:

It is no accident that public streets and sidewalks have developed as venues for the exchange of ideas. Even today, they remain one of the few places where a speaker can be confident that he is not simply preaching to the choir…. In light of the First Amendment’s purpose “to preserve an uninhibited marketplace of ideas in which truth will ultimately prevail…,” this aspect of traditional public fora is a virtue, not a vice.

Response: A great victory for free-speech and pro=life. The ruling puts on notice similar laws and statutes in other states and cities across America. The 9-0 ruling adds particular force to this decision. The Constitution and free speech is alive and well in America 2014. This is another loss for the Obama administration who went out of their way to file in support of the Massachusetts law.            *Top
