BOSTON (CBS) – There was a lot of turmoil at the Planned Parenthood Clinic in Boston on Saturday.
A bright yellow line at the clinic marking the 35-foot buffer zone remains at the site but it no longer has legal standing at this or any other abortion clinic in Massachusetts.
Advocates on both sides of the abortion issue showed up in force after the U.S. Supreme Court on Thursday struck down the law designating the buffer zones to keep protesters 35 feet away from clinics.
Dozens of abortion opponents demonstrated but still kept their distance out of respect for women visiting the clinic.
“Even though the line was taken off, we’re still gonna respect the line,” said abortion opponent Antonella Carillo.
