Abortion Clinic Protestors Beware

A proposed amendment to the City’s police code would give officers the ability to disperse abortion clinic protestors, who are harassing or inhibiting people from accessing the clinic within the 25-foot “buffer zone”, with only a verbal warning.

Currently, officers must provide a written warning to aggressive protestors within the 25-foot buffer zone.  If the amendment, proposed by Supervisor Hillary Ronen whose district includes the Planned Parenthood Health Center on Valencia, passes the Board’s Public and Neighborhood Safety Committee today, it will head to the full board next week.
