Judge Strikes Another Blow to Justice Department’s Targeted Persecution of Pro-life Advocates

In a hearing held on January 26, 2012, attorneys with the U.S. DOJ asked a federal district court judge to order Ken Scott to remain more than 25 feet away from the entrance of a Colorado abortion clinic. Judge Brimmer denied the DOJ’s request, striking a significant blow to the government’s case against Scott.  Scott is a peaceful pro-life advocate who hands out literature and counsels women on the public sidewalks outside abortion clinics.

These actions are constitutionally protected and Scott’s lawyers will vigorously fight to ensure these freedoms are not stripped away by an overzealous Justice Department seeking to silence the pro-life voice in America.  Read more about the Scott case here.
