Planned Parenthood CEO On Supreme Court Buffer Zone Ruling
Following the Supreme Court's controversial Massachusetts “buffer zone” decision, state leaders are looking for a legal loophole. In a unanimous decision, the court ruled that requiring pro-life activists to stay at least 35 feet away from reproductive health facilities violates their First Amendment rights.
Gov. Deval Patrick and other state leaders on Wednesday announced plans to craft legislation that would preserve a measure of privacy for women seeking treatment.
Marty Walz, the president and CEO of Planned Parenthood of Massachusetts, discussed the legal options.
