Noise Restrictions On Sidewalk Abortion Counselors Upheld

In Henderson v. McMurray, (ND AL, Feb. 4, 2020), an Alabama federal district court upheld a Huntsville, Alabama special events ordinance and the provision in a permit allowing plaintiffs, pro-life sidewalk abortion counselors, to use amplification only if they cannot be heard in adjacent buildings. The court concluded that the challenged restrictions do not violate plaintiffs' rights to free speech or free exercise of religion.
