Hal Sparks Radio Pgm — Consent and the Court #protectthezone (06/28/14)

Note: This is what I do now; I’m an activist full-time. I’m completely committed to changing the face of clinic access in this country. If you can, consider supporting my work so I can do more of it by clicking HERE and making a one-time or recurring (just click the box) contribution. All the funding goes to equipment, travel to other conferences/clinics/meetings with pro-choice legislators/training new escort programs and supplies. Thank you!


Yep. More McCullen, Supreme Court and clinic defense. This week’s unanimous SCOTUS decision struck down the Massachusetts 35-foot state-wide buffer zone protecting reproductive healthcare clinics and open the door to challenges against most of the patchwork of ordinances and laws across the country. Hal and I talk Scalia’s conflict, the reality of violence, the hypocrisy of upholding “free speech zones,” etc. and SCOTUS not giving so much as half a care for the real lives of real people.
