Feds Taking More Anti-Abortion Activists to Court

Interesting story out today about the Justice Department taking a harder stance on anti-abortion protestors under the Obama Administration. Under 8 years under President Bush the Justice Department only took 1 case to court. Under Obama, we’ve already seen 6 cases dealing with anti-abortion activists taken to court.

Here is an example of the lawsuits that have been filed according to the AP:

Since Obama’s inauguration, federal lawsuits have been filed against a woman who blocked a car from entering a clinic in West Palm Beach, Fla.; a Texas man who threw his body across the door of a patient waiting area in San Antonio.

The article goes on to say that it’s not surprising that more lawsuits have been filed. President Obama’s feelings on abortion don’t line up with George W. Bush’s.

I have no problem with the Government taking to court those who threaten other people’s lives, but those who peacefully protest? That’s a grey area.

Read the article and tell me what you think. When is a civil and peaceful protest lawsuit worthy? What about civil disobedience?
