Supreme Court OKs Public Display of Abortion Photos

Pro-life activists have the right to reveal the horrors of the abortion industry, according to an appeals court ruling that the U.S. Supreme Court allowed to stand.

The high court announced it will not review a decision from the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals that affirmed the constitutional rights of pro-life activists to display in public photographs of the work of abortionists, notes the non-profit Thomas More Law Center, which handled the case.

"This is a tremendous victory for the First Amendment and the pro-life movement," said trial counsel Robert Muise. "The Supreme Court's decision leaves the 9th Circuit's ruling undisturbed, ensuring that there is no double standard for pro-life speech and affirming the fundamental principle of the First Amendment that government officials cannot prohibit silent, peaceful, non-obstructive, political speech on the public streets simply because certain listeners or viewers find the speech offensive."
