The PG’s editorial support for freedom of speech on the 35-foot limit of abortion centers is one of the most misguided and unforgivable pieces I have ever read (“Better Buffer: The Justices Balance Abortion Rights and Free Speech,” July 2). Abortions are legal; the anti-abortion people kill those they want to — shooting them through windows of the clinics they work in and at church. Terroristic threats are no joke.
The Supreme Court as it stands needs extra scrutiny of its decisions; the justices have lost their minds. You need to write of this, not defend it. Some anti-abortion people will say lies and attack women verbally and press against their bodies if no one is there to protect them until the door closes behind them. The photographs they show are most certainly illegally smuggled out of medical facilities with no permission of the woman having the abortion or of the facility. Written permission is needed.
Free speech is being used as a scapegoat to circumvent laws that are unpopular with only a small percentage of the citizenry. Please be more sincere in covering this court’s behavior and decisions.
