Washington, DC----"Today's unanimous decision of the United States Supreme Court, striking down the buffer zone law in Massachusetts, is a victory for free speech in America," said Judie Brown, president of American Life League, in reaction to the decision reached in McCullen v. Coakley.
"The abortion industry in the United States thrives because it continually lies to women," Brown continued. "Pro-lifers in the streets outside of abortion facilities are amazed at the lies related to them by hurting mothers who are on their way to kill their child. Sidewalk counselors are able to change minds and hearts by simply offering help to women in crisis situations."
"Buffer zones like the one in Massachusetts," Brown said, "come from desperate abortionists trying to protect their businesses and their income by restricting the First Amendment rights of peaceful, prayerful people whose only goal is to help the mother and save the child from a gruesome death. We applaud this unanimous decision."
