Pro-lifers granted chance to defend themselves in court

Charlie Butts - OneNewsNow -

The Third U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals has reversed a federal judge's decision against two pro-life advocates.

Randall Wenger of the Independence Law Center and Alliance Defense Fund tells OneNewsNow his two clients -- Edward Snell and John McTernan -- simply wanted to peacefully picket and hand out literature to women entering a Planned Parenthood abortion clinic in York, Pennsylvania. "But the police officers outside of the clinic, who are paid for by Planned Parenthood, gave the pro-life counselors a really hard time, arrested one of them for entering the alley to try to talk to the women who were entering the alley, and another one was threatened with arrest," he explains.
