Buffer zones needed II

Regarding the news story “Voiding of buffer zone at abortion clinics could force Western Pa. change” : As an obstetrician/gynecologist who practices in Pittsburgh, I've seen firsthand the impact that so-called “sidewalk counselors” have on my patients, which is why I find the Supreme Court's decision in McCullen v. Coakley so troubling.

Buffer zones around clinics that offer abortion services are necessary to protect women seeking comprehensive reproductive health care. Should Pittsburgh's buffer zone be eliminated, I fear for the safety and well-being not just of my patients, but of anyone who works at these clinics.

As a physician, I trust women to make the decisions that are right for them and their families. It is clear that the anti-choice protesters do not.
