I, for one, love the 2007 Massachusetts law creating buffer zones around abortion clinics.

Would it be too much to ask the lawyers and anti-abortion activists now wailing about "free speech" and feeling "intimidated" by having to stay 35 feet (yes, thirty-five) away from the abortion clinic doors to show the same concern about TSA airport screenings?  the "free speech zones" routinely used at major-party political conventions? 

I do hope all the Justices remember the kind of vitriol and murderous violence that has always been part of the anti-abortion movement.  Not that other protest groups don't have violent elements, but that far too often doctors and vulnerable women have been the only victims of this violence.
