No more "Buffer Zones." Limited "Free Speech Zones" still legal.

I can't say I am surprised by the Court's decision about buffer zones. I am disappointed. In this day and age where we have designated "free speech" protest zones approved by the Court it seems we could have carved out the same sort of thing to protect women and workers at these clinics.

This isn't really about gentle little old ladies who are trying to persuade women to not have a legal, very safe medical procedure. This is about violent people who harass women on their way into clinics.

I have no doubt that women who seek a safe, legal medical procedure at these clinics have thought thoroughly about their decision. A decision that I have no doubt they have considered and angsted over for some time. One that is probably the most difficult decision they've ever faced and made.

Not to mention, the VAST MAJORITY of women going to Planned Parenthood are going there for preventive health care. Like Pap smears and breast cancer screenings. Or reproductive health care including HOW TO GET PREGNANT AND BEAR A CHILD.

What could be more "Pro-Life" than providing people with preventive health care? Care that might save their lives and make it possible for them to reproduce when and if they choose to do so.

2. Thanks for notifying me. I corrected that.

 

Some days my fingers type far ahead of my brain and spell-check doesn't catch me. That was a regrettable mistake. You may certainly laugh and poke fun at me! As well you should.

4. The answer is obvious.

"No more "Buffer Zones." Limited "Free Speech Zones" still legal."

Establish "free speech zones" somewhere remote from the clinic entrance. Free Speech Zones are legal and enforceable, with clubs and fire-hoses, if necessary.
