A team of pro-life advocates who like to try to intervene when women headed for an abortion business in West Palm Beach say they unfairly are being targeted by police because officers enforce a noise ordinance only against them.
Not passersby. Not Wendy’s. Not a Pollo Tropical restaurant. And not the abortion business itself.
On appeal to the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals, Susan Pine and Marilyn Blackburn are asking that a noise ordinance be struck down, or otherwise changed to make it constitutional.
Right now, Pine and Blackburn, who offer to help women facing crisis pregnancies outside the city’s Presidential Women’s Center abortion business, say the city’s enforcement of an ordinance is selective.
According to officials with Liberty Counsel, which is representing the women, the city ordinance “bans all ‘shouting’ and amplified sound within 100 feet of the [abortionists’] property line, regardless of the volume or whether the sound causes any disturbance.”
The legal team reports the city and its police department, however, are “only enforcing this draconian ordinance against the pro-life counselors. Susan Pine has already been fined once for using a megaphone outside PWC, and the city and police have threatened further enforcement and punishment.”
