    I agree with you that protesters a funeral are appalling, but forget the moral aspect, this SCOTUS decision opens a can of worms, unfortunately.

    True, I wonder if SCOTUS is going to blanket judge all matters like this based on this precedent... or if they are going to look at the unique circumstances in different situations as well as the emotional toll involved in them. I can agree with you this opens up a lot of other challenges now.

    I don't know. Our Supreme Court is pretty damn unpredictable nowadays.

    It is the one backfire of this Supreme Court decision.
    how many public open funerals do you know of? i know of 0. a funeral is a private event for friends or family of the deceased they are not for anyone that walks in.
    they can remove people from the funeral if they try to create a disturbance.

    your right to free speech doesn't trump someone else's right to privacy. which a funeral is a private ceramony for friends and family.

    I'm sure the anti-choice crowd will appreciate their newfound ability to spit in the face of women who are already going through something hard.

    That is untrue. They are held on private land, and the cemetery owner can decide who is allowed and who is not. So can a church.

    I don't understand why there is such confusion between public and private.
    You can never be safe from a government that can keep you completely safe from each other and the world. You must choose.

    They aren't private, the land may be privately owned, that's not the same thing as private. Abortions also may take place in privately owned clinics which are on privately owned land, yet protesters are permitted. No confusion on my part.

    Protesters are not permitted in abortion clinics. The sidewalk in front of an abortion clinic is public property whether the clinic is private or public.

    They are permitted on the privately owned land that abortion clinics are on, and now with no buffer zones. Funerals will be next. There is no constitutionally valid reason why this can be permitted on privately owned abortion clinic land, and not at funerals.

    In my opinion this is the correct decision. Protestors have the right to peacefully assemble on public spaces even if its over a really touchy subject such as abortion. There should be no "buffer zones" where people are not allowed to practice their right to free speech inside that "buffer zone". [/FONT][/COLOR]
    I think that pregnant women who want abortions, and are being harassed when they go to the clinic, should assert their Second Amendment rights here.
