SCOTUS backs abortion protests

This wasn't all that surprising. The Supreme Court ruled unanimously that racketeering laws can't be used to block abortion protests outside of family planning clinics. The vote was 8-0 since newly appointed justice Samuel Alito didn't participate in the case.

The protestors over the years have done more harm than good for their cause, making fools of themselves with their tactics. I still say that Planned Parenthood of Southeastern Pennsylvania came up with the best solution last year. Use the protestors as a fundraising mechanism where donors pledge by the number of protestors (e.g. minimum 10 cents per protestor). The last time they did it, they raised $36,789.

Thanks for your help, guys. The idea has spread to other chapters like New Jersey, St. Louis and Western Penn.
