Times They Are A Changing

Here is some information via Stop the ACLU about a Supreme Court ruling regarding abortion.

The Supreme Court dealt a setback Tuesday to abortion clinics in a two-decade-old legal fight over anti-abortion protests, ruling that federal extortion and racketeering laws cannot be used to ban demonstrations.

Anti-abortion groups brought the appeal after the 7th Circuit had asked a trial judge to determine whether a nationwide injunction could be supported by charges that protesters had made threats of violence absent a connection with robbery or extortion.

I never could figure out how people protesting abortion clinics were guilty of extortion and racketeering but idiots who protest at a soldier’s funeral are exercising their right to free speech. Well now it is all cleared up.

As always, I welcome your comments.
