Wyoming Supreme Court Considers Abortion Protest Limits
JACKSON, Wyo. (AP) — The Wyoming Supreme Court is considering whether the town of Jackson was justified in keeping anti-abortion protesters away from Boy Scouts.
Lawyers for the town and protesters are scheduled to make their case to the court Thursday.
In May, activists from Wichita, Kan.-based Spirit One Ministries and Operation Save America, staged a three-day protest of what’s believed to be the state’s only abortion clinic. On May 20, Jackson sought a restraining order to keep them at least two blocks away from Town Square. About 200 Boy Scouts and other children were gathered there for an antler auction.
Two protesters were arrested for violating it.
The town says it didn’t want children being exposed to graphic images of fetuses.
The Jackson Hole Daily says a ruling isn’t expected for several months.
