MSNBC Panel: Pro-life Sidewalk Counseling Is 'Mob-like' 'Bullying,' Not 'Free Speech'
Pro-life sidewalk counseling outside of abortion clinics is "bullying"
and should not not accorded First Amendment's "free speech" guarantees
agreed the panelists on Thursday's edition of Now with Alex Wagner.
The panel in question was addressing the Supreme Court's decision to hear oral arguments in McCullen v. Coakley,
a case which challenges a Massachusetts law which bars anyone but
abortion clinic staffers from "enter[ing] or remain[ing] on a public way
or sidewalk” that is within thirty-five feet of an entrance, exit, or
driveway of an abortion clinic.
