Andrew Hemingway Releases Statement on a Victory for the 1st Amendment
Manchester, N.H. – The United State Supreme Court has handed down a ruling that the Massachusetts 35 foot free speech buffer zone is unconstitutional. It is presumed, this ruling will affect the Maggie Hassan championed 25 foot buffer zone she celebrated signing on June 10, less than three weeks ago.
“This is a victory for the First Amendment. This is a victory for the right to free assembly and the right to free speech. This court unanimously put aside any political preferences on the issue of abortion and acknowledged this is simply a matter of the First Amendment--something Maggie Hassan refused to recognize in her zeal to protect abortion providers, which is one protection not covered in the Constitution. This is yet another example of Governor Hassan’s extreme ideology—trampling on the Constitution to advance her personal political agenda.”—Andrew Hemingway, NH Gubernatorial Candidate
