Reddy v. Foster

Of Babies and Birth Certificates


A New Hampshire law allows the creation of 25-foot zones in which no person may speak, stand, or even enter on public ways and sidewalks outside of abortion facilities. The law explicitly exempts abortion facility escorts, allowing such individuals to engage in speech and expressive activities favorable to abortion—encouraging and compelling women to enter the abortion facilities and continue with the abortions—while prohibiting pro-life advocates from engaging in any expressive activity within the zones.
