Measure Expands Abortion Clinic ‘Bubble’
Antiabortion protesters will no longer be able to stand directly in front of Planned Parenthood and other San Francisco clinics that offer reproductive services if one city supervisor has his way.
Supervisor David Campos is planning to introduce legislation Tuesday that would create a 25-foot buffer zone around the entrances, exits and driveways of those facilities, excluding hospitals. He and supporters of the proposal say it would spare women who use the facilities from harassment.
“We respect the right of people to have freedom of expression,” Campos said. “What is happening is more than that - it’s intimidation.”
