Statement On Supreme Court Decision To Strike Down Buffer Zones In Mccullen V. Coakley


June 26, 2014

New Haven, CT — Christian Miron, executive director of NARAL Pro-Choice Connecticut, expressed his disappointment with today’s Supreme Court’s decision on McCullen v. Coakley.

"We’re extremely disappointed with today’s Supreme Court decision to overturn a very necessary law which served to ensure the right of women to access basic health care services free from violence, harassment, and intimidation,” said Miron.

"Anti-choice violence at reproductive-health centers is far from being eradicated. The existence and vigorous enforcement of clinic-protection laws against those who use violence and threats is essential to protecting the lives and well being of patients as well as health care providers.”
