Today's SCOTUS ruling against Massachusetts' buffer zones around abortion clinics - issued from within SCOTUS' own legally protected buffer zone - has met with swift outrage from pro-choice forces appalled that the court took seriously the "pro-life" argument their "gentle...sidewalk counselors" merely seek to "engage in personal, caring, consensual conversations with women." Under the quickly created Twitter hashtags #NotCounseling and #ClinicEscort, angry pro-choice women told the real story...
"Honestly, it felt almost like a bribe...essentially being asked to barter away women's rights for more money."
"People's human rights do not end when they enter the walls of a prison."
"This rash of radically unconstitutional bills is appearing by design."
