Deval Patrick, governor of Massachusetts and former Planned Parenthood board member, apparently didn’t like the U.S. Supreme Court’s unanimous ruling that declared unconstitutional a law extending an abortion mill buffer zone 35 feet. The court contended that the state failed to come up with a less restrictive method to limiting protests against the killing of unborn children.
Patrick and his fellow abortion advocates wanted to make it easier for the police to break up crowds of protesters and the attorney general to fine pro-lifers. Life News reports that Patrick has signed the bill into law.
As I stated in the previous post, a woman’s “right” to kill her own children is unlike any other. A pro-life presence outside these factories of death just might save lives. It certainly doesn’t impede the pro-abortion side. A woman determined to kill her child will not be deterred, but a woman filled with doubt might. After all, she is carrying life.
Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards said women seeking to kill their unborn children “shouldn’t be forced to run through an onslaught of screaming, yelling and bullying to access health care,” although abortions aren’t health care.
I don’t know how much, if any, screaming, yelling, or “bullying” goes on, but on the off-chance a pro-lifer physically threatens a woman trying to enter the clinic, laws already exist for dealing with that. Why new and more restrictive laws for people who don’t want the voiceless and vulnerable unborn slaughtered?
