VICTORY: San Francisco enacts 25-foot barrier around reproductive health care facilities
Planned Parenthood works tirelessly for women’s health care. It also reports that protesters use loopholes in current law to regularly harass, intimidate and bully its patients. The protesters scream at all who walk in and out of the clinic, standing just a few feet from its front door. They display graphic signs and distribute pamphlets containing medically inaccurate information about birth control and abortion.
After almost 2,000 signatures, the San Francisco Board of Supervisors voted to enact an expanded 25 foot buffer zone around reproductive healthcare facilities.
