Today on The Signorile Show!

4:35pm ET -  Seven years ago, Boston instituted a 35-foot “buffer zone” around abortion clinics.  The barrier protected abortion clinic patients and employees from harassment and threats until the Supreme Court overturned the law because it violated freedom of speech.  With the elimination of the buffer zone, protesters can now approach patients right up to the clinic doors.  Calling themselves “counselors,” they try to talk women out of getting abortions, often through propaganda and intimidation.  Senior political writer for Jill Filipovic visited Boston to see how things have changed.  She joins us today to talk about the law's impact on patients and protesters.
