Outside the Lines: High Court Hears Buffer Zone Case

“Good morning! What can I do to help you?” 76-year-old grandmother Eleanor McCullen has greeted hundreds of young ladies in Massachusetts outside of abortion clinics, providing them with viable options and helping them understand the tragedy of abortion. But in 2007, Massachusetts passed a law that made it virtually impossible for Eleanor to speak with the ladies at most abortion clinics in the state. The law draws a 35-foot “buffer zone” around the entrances to all abortion clinics, and prohibits any pro-life speech in those zones. (4/19/2020)
