    It's a clear case of one party intruding on the privacy and freedom of another party, no different than harassment. That should always be illegal.

    When "the patient" decides to walk into a door that says, "Family Planning Clinic" or "Abortions While You Wait," she abdicates her right to privacy. Doesn't she?

    Of course not. What a ridiculous notion. If you walk into a movie theater to watch the latest Transformers abomination, do you cede your right to privacy? Utterly absurd. I guess that whole patient confidentiality thing also flies right out the window when a medical procedure you find distasteful comes up.

    I swear, what the topic of abortion does to some people's intelligence...

    Tell that to Westboro Baptist. That is the price we pay for freedom.

    SCOTUS is being consistent. That's exactly what we expect from them.

    Yes, and I believe that Westboro is guilty of harassment.

    I agree with that. I think it's awful. SCOTUS probably thinks it's awful, too. Allowing freedom is not always convenient, warm and fuzzy.

    I wouldn't use the word abdicate, but she has a higher level of privacy after she walks into that door. Anything going on inside is just an assumption to those outside.

    Maybe it'll entice some anti-abortion people to stand outside and offer to pay a woman's medical expenses and adopt her baby.
    Actually, this has been known to happen. In my community a home was purchased across the street from the PP clinic to provide pre-natal and also adoption services.
