San Francisco pol delivers 25-ft buffer legislation to abortionist supporters

San Francisco pol delivers 25-ft buffer legislation to abortionist supporters

San Francisco city supervisor David Campos is making good on his campaign promise to go after “right-wing extremists,” reportedly proposing legislation Tuesday to increase the anti-free speech “bubble zone” around Planned Parenthood to 25 feet.

Campos’s website describes exactly who he is trying to attack: “right-wing extremists”:

David is working closely with women’s health providers to devise legislation to stop harassment of clinic patients by right-wing extremists.

Campos, whose twitter feed appears largely dedicated to his efforts to rename San Francisco Airport for gay politician Harvey Milk, has been a fan of abortion-provider Planned Parenthood for quite some time. He highlighted a Planned Parenthood worker’s endorsement on his campaign website, an endorsement he also tweeted. The endorsement reads, in part:

For staff, it’s hard to “maintain the cool” every day with protesters set up shop outside. For our patients, the harassment is particularly hard. We’ll never know how many people don’t come in the door because of what these people will make them endure.

We reached out to Supervisor Campos right away. He helped us through the whole process of setting up a barrier zone between the protestors and the front door, so our patients can access our services. His office has been amazing, and still check in with us to see how we’re doing. Through David’s work, I can do mine too.

The San Francisco Chronicle reports:

….Campos said he expected legal challenges, but noted that attempts to fight other buffer-zone laws have failed. In Boston, a federal appeals court upheld a 35-foot zone around reproductive health clinics in January, ruling that “the right of the state to take reasonable steps to ensure the safe passage of persons wishing to enter health care facilities cannot seriously be questioned.”

Free speech for me, but not for the.

Funny how some have free speech and others haven’t.

“the right of the state to take reasonable steps to ensure the safe passage of persons wishing to enter health care facilities cannot seriously be questioned.”

“Safe passage?!” What about the “safe passsage” of the unborn child into the world?

    I don’t think the unborn are even an issue to these people. A clump of cells? How can that be an issue when “reproductive rights/healthcare” is of paramount importance!

    Meh!

Thee, not the!

    You had it right the first time. Free speech for the ________

    Kind of a “Madlibs” for pissed off conservatives.

I just view these people as the ultimate in hypocrisy. Abortion is just another example in the regressive world of making someone else pay. Not having to pick up the tab is their motto/ creed/code and the extent of their values.

“We’ll never know how many people don’t come in the door because of what these people will make them endure.”

That sentence would feature prominently in any brief I wrote against the “bubble”.

    I believe Justice Scalia has written scathingly about the Supreme Court’s jurisprudence creating an “abortion exception to the First Amendment.”

      Gosnell’s murderous regime in Philadelphia reflects on him. The case’s all but total absence from the public discourse reflects on America:

      It’s time for the lukewarm to get over whatever prejudices are keeping them from getting on the right side of this issue, for the good of the victims of this ghastly culture, and for their own good as well.
      ———————————————

      The gymnastics required of the Collective in support of this monstrous sacrament are all something we should “write scathingly” of.

We know that leftists and union activists are routinely far more aggressive and violent than anti-abortion protesters. So why not impose a 25-foot buffer law on them?

Once again, San Francisco proves that is the most child un-friendly place west of Berkshire county, Massachusetts.

The extremists are not the people who oppose termination of an innocent human life for the most capricious of reasons: preservation of wealth and welfare, for convenience.

The extremists are not the people who oppose a general devaluation of human life, which will be a concern for all but a select minority.

The secular should oppose elective abortions following the emergence of consciousness, which can be assumed closely correlated with nervous system activity.

The Jews, Christians, et al should oppose elective abortions either from conception or following the “living soul” standard

“And the Lord God formed man of dust from the ground, and He breathed into his nostrils the soul of life, and man became a living soul.”

which can also be assumed closely correlated with nervous system activity or emergence of consciousness.

All Americans must recognize the unalienable Right to Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness from “creation”, which can only be revoked with cause and following due process under equal protection of the law.

The extremists are pro-abortion. They violate basic civil and human rights. They need to make a better choice.

It is day 36 of http://40daysforlife.com/

So apparently peaceful prayer outside of an abortion clinic makes an impression!

Holding signs saying “Choose Life” is very provocative to people who want to kill their unborn children or to people who already have killed their unborn children through abortion. Many people have suffered greatly and in silence after exercising their abortion rights.

Just wait till they find the conglomeration of genes that leads to homosexuality . They will be being these Harris to hold back laydees fighting to get rid of it.
