Abortion buffer zone law protects constitutional right

I would like to respond to the article “State pushes pro-life protests from clinic” in the 11/15 issue of The Beacon.

I do not think widening the buffer zone between protesters and anti-choice demonstrators outside an abortion clinic violates free speech.

As a social worker, I know that many women entering such a clinic are often harassed by demonstrators and even threatened to the point of having to be accompanied into the clinic by a supporter of their rights.

All states should mandate that sufficient space be provided for those who chose to exercise their constitutional right to an abortion and that they are able to do so comfortably.
