(Worthy News) - A judge in Washington state has dismissed a criminal charge against an evangelist who regularly preaches outside of a local Planned Parenthood clinic.
The Pacific Justice Institute noted in a press release that its client, Eric Schonbachler, was accused of violating the city of Kennewick's noise ordinance because he raised his voice to share his message.
In November 2018, a police officer confronted him outside the abortion clinic in an attempt to get him to stop. The officer gave Schonbachler a citation for "loud and raucous, and frequent, repetitive, or continuous sounds made by the amplified human voice." [ Source: CBN News (Read More...) ]
