Pittsburgh: pro-life advocates win legal victory for free speech

Catholic World News - October 15, 2010

Siding with pro-life advocates, a US district court judge has blocked enforcement of a Pittsburgh ordinance banning the placement of leaflets on windshields.

“At issue is the right of pro-life advocates to educate the public on pro-life matters, especially as they relate to the upcoming November 2nd elections,” stated Edward White of the American Center for Law and Justic. “The plaintiffs seek to distribute literature to individuals and to place it on unoccupied parked cars-- without fear of fine, penalty or censure.”

    Judge Cercone is a breath of fresh air. I'll bet "Planned" Parenthood is throwing a fit!
