Protesting at these clinics is wrong. They should be allowed to protest but not at the clinics.

What's next? Crowds outside gynecologists' offices, trying to intimidate women into staying away?

These ''protesters'' are nothing more than BULLIES!

Suppose I get a group of friends to stand outside a church on Sunday morning, demanding that they turn away from the superstition of religion?

How do you suppose THAT would go over?

Pam is on a roll! Couldn't say it better - I particularly fear those such as the "noted' "spirit led" fanatic at one of these clinics - the law ought to be more like that of the SCOTUS - no protests near any clinic and no access for several 100 feet from them - there have been incidents reported - enough so to warrant the safety of clinic workers and patients access to and from, without the confrontation of fanatic, and/or violent fringe elements to invade such personal space!

Yay, Pam! You go, girl! How about the buffers around voting areas? Buffers around politicians? All or none in my book. I'd rather see the buffer zone increased...like about three miles in this case.

Bullies shouldn't be tolerated. Ever.

Noted. Thanks, Cal. I wish these protesters would find something else to do with their time that might help actual children who are alive and in need. The Court needs to just send them home & stop them from harassing people.

Why not just ban all protesting altogether? These people have as much right to protest the murder of innocents as any animal rights activist has to protest the wearing of fur or factory farming or as those who protest against war or nuclear power or GMO's, or whatever ones cause may be.

Thank you for the news. We have to protect women's rights.

I am sure that Justice Antonin 'The Scab' Scalia will not consider in any way the violence caused by these grandmother types. Sine 1977: 8 murders, 17 attempted murders, 42 bombings, 176 arsons, 99 other failed bombings and arsons, 391 physical invasions of personal and business properties, 1478 acts of vandalism, 100 BUTYRIC ACID ATTACKS, 663 anthrax threats - 482 since 9/11/01, 191 assaults, 420 death threats, and 4 KIDNAPPINGS. The Grandma Face is a front for a bunch Christian Taliban of America jihad terrorists and it is far past time when they should be subject treatment as the TERRORISTS that they are.

Thanks, Cal, for posting. Thanks, Lloyd H. for the stats. What gives these people the right to get in the face of a woman who may or may not be going in for an abortion? We have freedom of religion in this country, not freedom to force your religion on everyone else. These protestors are no better in my opinion than those from the Westgate church who protest at military funerals. Leave other people alone, Live your life as you choose, let them live as THEY choose.

I am all for the democratic right to protest but along with democracy comes responsibility. Democracy is not a right it is a privilege and needs to be defended from those who abuse it.

Noted. The only saving factor may be that SCOTUS doesn't really like to undo other SCOTUS rulings. They understand that the more they do overturn, they leave a legacy for a future Supreme Court to easily overturn them. It's a thin hope that I will cling to right now.
