Recently elected Chicago mayor Brandon Johnson released a plan in July endorsing 50-foot bubble zones around abortion clinics to prevent pro-life advocates from sharing information. The City already has an ordinance in place to stop sidewalk counselors from distributing literature. Johnson cites compassion, care, and safety for women seeking abortion. Students for Life Action calls the plan “misguided.”
“The Pro-Life Generation, sometimes gathering on sidewalks for counseling, advocates for no violence inside or outside of the womb,” SFLA told The Christian Post. They urged Johnson to focus instead on the city’s climbing murder rate.
The U.S. Supreme Court upheld legality of the bubble zones in 2020.
