Imagine that...women who do not want to be harrassed. A real mind fck for the anti choice crowd who believes women are docile subservient brainless twits. They just can't figure it out!!

Harassment isn't a constitutional right. They don't need to "engage" women coming and going from clinics any closer than the law allows. They can shout their diatribe just fine from a distance...it certainly doesn't seem to stop them.
I wonder if they would feel the same if protesters "engaged' church goers while entering or exiting churches?

Wonder how fast they would file suit?

Prolife zealots did this to themselves. The buffer should stand just like the buffers that protect people from the Westboro Baptist church.
