Pro-life group says vaccine protest curbs too broad in California
(Worthy News) – A six-day-old California law banning protests within 100 feet of any facility offering any type of vaccination was challenged in federal court Wednesday by a pro-life group that says the measure blocks its protests at a Fresno abortion facility.
The Alliance Defending Freedom, a public interest law firm, sued California state Attorney General Rob Bonta, a Democrat, on behalf of Right to Life of Central California.
At issue is SB 742, which Gov. Gavin Newsom, a Democrat who defeated a recall vote last month, signed into law Oct. 8. The measure bans protests when a speaker is within 30 feet of another individual who is “seeking to enter or exit a vaccination site.” The law also restricts protests within 100 feet of the entrance or exit of such a site, but exempts “lawful picketing arising out of a labor dispute.” [ Source: Washington Times (Read More…) ]
