As many of you know, there has been a sign posted at an abortion clinic in Birmingham that has falsely represented a Federal Injunction. We have contended that this sign has been a continual violation of the First Amendment and a threat to our freedoms that are preserved in the constitution. This morning when we went to pray the Liturgy at the Time of Death for Holy Saturday, we were pleased to see a new sign. The new sign makes it clear that people not named in the injunction can pray and witness at the clinic by simply saying that demonstrations and protests are “limited” at the clinic. The old sign incorrectly stated that all “anti-abortion” protesters had to stay a certain distance away from the property. That is a clear violation of the First Amendment which protects freedom of speech, assembly and religion. We consider the new sign to reflect a significant victory in the ongoing battle for a culture of life. Please click on the youtube link for an explanation and some pictures of the old sign and the new sign.
