Chicago City Council's Proposed Abortion Bubble Zone Draws Opposition from Pro-lifers, ACLU

Chicago, IL (LifeNews.com) -- The Chicago City Council's proposal for an 8-foot bubble zone around abortion centers is such an infringement on the free speech rights of pro-life advocates that the ACLU is opposing it. The pro-abortion legal group is on the other side of the Planned Parenthood abortion business in a vote expected tomorrow. The Chicago bubble zone would prohibit pro-life people from coming within eight feet of any person approaching an abortion business in the city. It imposes a $500 fine for simply trying to talk to a woman about abortion as she walks to the entrance of the abortion facility. While pro-life groups are strongly opposed to the measure and are asking members of the city council to vote against it, the ACLU of Illinoiss has issued a statement that makes clear that the Chicago Council "must honor the Constitution and tolerate the widest amount of free speech in public ways."
