United States Seventh Circuit

Price v. City of Chicago, 17-2196

Upheld the constitutionality of Chicago's abortion clinic buffer-zone ordinance, which bars pro-life sidewalk counselors or protestors from approaching within eight feet of a person in the vicinity of an abortion clinic. The pro-life plaintiffs argued that the so-called bubble-zone ordinance infringes their freedom of speech. Disagreeing, the Seventh Circuit followed Hill v. Colorado, 530 U.S. 703 (2000), while noting that the decision has been called into question by recent Supreme Court rulings.
