    The legal definition doesn't mention standing on a side-walk or "protesting."

    Supreme Court Strikes Down Abortion Clinic Buffer Zones

    WASHINGTON — The Supreme Court on Thursday unanimously struck down a Massachusetts law that barred protests near abortion clinics.
    The law, enacted in 2007, created 35-foot buffer zones around entrances to abortion clinics. State officials said the law was a response to a history of harassment and violence at abortion clinics in Massachusetts, including a shooting rampage at two facilities in 1994.
    The law was challenged on First Amendment grounds by opponents of abortion who said they sought to have quiet conversations with women entering clinics to tell them about alternatives to abortion.
    The court was unanimous about the bottom line but divided on the reasoning. Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. wrote a relatively narrow majority opinion. He was joined by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Stephen G. Breyer, Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan. He suggested that the state could pursue other alternatives.
    Justice Antonin Scalia, in a concurrence joined by Justices Anthony M. Kennedy and Clarence Thomas, said the majority’s approach was too tentative. The law, he said, is “unconstitutional root and branch.”
    Justice Samuel A. Alito Jr. filed a separate concurrence.

    Get back to me on what a victory of freedom of speech is when these entitled robe-wearers strike down any buffer between the public screaming and threatening them inches from their faces while they fear being murdered by similar insane harassers.

    If you can't appreciate that quote, regardless of your political views then I have no use for you.
    lol

    if one can't appreciate that quote.. a quote basically preaching about tolerance... then you can't appreciate them.

    Irony alert.

    Also funny... you posting this tripe that puts you on a pedestal looking down on others with a faux superiority complex while affixed with the typo "sin".

    I generally prefer to close with something. As a child of the sixties, is comfortable.

    So do you have it on a quick-click...thing...or something? Did you program a shortcut key? I'm just curious because by the tenth time I would get completely bored of it.

    Spare us rob. IIRC you were all for the bussed in thugs harassing the 15 yo son of a banker during the failed OWS crap.
    Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

    That's awesome. In an age where everything is automated I respect when somebody takes the time to do each thing individually.

    I still adblocked it, though.
