Today, the U.S. Supreme Court is hearing a challenge to a buffer zone law that protects patients and staff at clinics in Massachusetts from anti-choice harassment and violence.
Across the country, extreme, often violent, anti-choice protesters physically block access to clinics and intimidate people exercising their constitutionally protected rights. Learn more about this issue and the laws that exist to protect patients and their doctors.
One of my bosses has a death threat out on her because she performs abortions. Personally, she got pregnant at sixteen, couldn’t get an abortion because it was illegal and almost died during her herbal attempts to miscarry. My other boss has to fight with her OR staff to assist her in the clinic. Although I have never been faced with the decision, I fully support a woman’s right to choose.
