But here;s the really impoirtant thing. Advertising don;t change peoples minds. It just makes you aware of new alternatives you didn't know about.

Please go read the Hill v. Colorado ruling. The laws in Colorado didn't stop the protests from being seen or heard by anybody walking into a clinic. They did, however, stop protestors from stopping or holding up people from walking freely into an abortion clinic to have a procedure done - which is, not coincidentally, another constitutionally allowed freedom.

So protesters can protest within 300 m of an abortion clinic? Then why was someone in this thread claiming they weren't allowed to? Wasn't that you?

I have no desire to read any case law, thank you very much. Lawyers and judges are all hypocritical scum.

I believe the figure in the Hill ruling was 100 feet. Which allows protestors to express themselves without standing in the way of anybody else's freedoms.

The reason that law is constitutional, is because the same 100 ft standard applies to, let's say, a pro-choice rally in the same location. The restriction isn't based on the content of the protest.

Of course the restriction is based on content. The content is political, you can't do it. Ergo, forbiding based on content.

The tricks and artifices of advertising are available to the seller of the better product no less than to the seller of the poorer product. But only the former enjoys the advantage derived from the better quality of his product.

And the second, and the third, and the fourth, but not for the fifth?
