Massachusetts Passes Another Bad Bill

Bradley Mattes   |   August 22, 2014

One pro-life pundit wrote, “If at first you don’t impede, try, try again.”  Massachusetts passed a law forbidding pro-life sidewalk counselors from getting near women going in for abortions.  The Supreme Court unanimously agreed it was a blatant violation of free speech.  Two weeks later activist legislators and the governor passed another law pro-lifers say is worse than the first.  The police have been given sole discretion in determining if a pro-lifer’s actions are disruptive.  If so, they’re made to stand twenty-five feet away from the abortion mill for up to eight hours or until the mill closes.  It’s like a teacher sending an unruly student to the corner.  Local pro-lifers say the new law “invites state censorship.”  Maybe Massachusetts just likes getting spanked by the nation’s highest court.
