LC Files Federal Lawsuit in PA Against Unjust Abortion Clinic Buffer Zone
Faith and Freedom with Liberty Counsel’s Mat Staver and Liberty Counsel’s Holly Meade… An 11-minute weekday radio program discussing hot topics in the area of religious liberty, the sanctity of human life and the family.
Liberty Counsel has filed a federal lawsuit against Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, because it instituted a buffer zone around abortion clinics that prohibits people, such as sidewalk counsellors and the clients we represent, to get close enough to communicate with those assessing the abortion clinic.
Mat Staver: This is a very important case, Holly, obviously from a legal perspective. The Supreme Court has already ruled recently in a case similar where it struck down a buffer zone…that is designed literally to keep people away. Here what we’re talking about it individuals who are peacefully engaging in sidewalk counselling. They’re not rioting, they’re not picketing, they’re not shouting, they’re not blocking access or entrances. They’re just trying to counsel people who are accessing this abortion clinic for a life-changing, and frankly, life-ending experience.
Holly Meade: Right. And the tragic part is that they are being harassed by the police as well as the abortion activists. Matt, we’re not just talking about a freedom of speech issue, we’re talking a life issue. Abortion has become the leading cause of death in the United States…
