The Supreme Court = The Haves. Women Visiting Abortion Clinics = The Have Nots
The Supreme Court couldn’t be more hypocritical in a ruling it handed down today:
WASHINGTON — The Supreme Court on Thursday unanimously struck down a Massachusetts law that barred protests near abortion clinics.
The law, enacted in 2007, created 35-foot buffer zones around entrances to abortion clinics.
So now people can scream “baby killer” at women who come and go from those clinics. But as for the home of the Supremes? They issued this order almost exactly a year ago today:
No person shall engage in a demonstration within the Supreme Court building and grounds. The term “demonstration” includes demonstrations, picketing, speechmaking, marching, holding vigils or religious services and all other like forms of conduct that involve the communication or expression of views or grievances, engaged in by one or more persons, the conduct of which is reasonably likely to draw a crowd or onlookers. The term does not include casual use by visitors or tourists that is not reasonably likely to attract a crowd or onlookers.
Disgusting. I’d love to see someone challenge this new law based on the Supreme Court’s own restrictions…if that’s possible.
