A San Francisco supervisor is looking to expand the zone that separates reproductive health clinics like Planned Parenthood from anti-abortion protesters. Supervisor David Campos wants to replace the current eight-foot "bubble zone" with a 25-foot buffer around the entrances, exits and driveways of clinics that offer reproductive services. Supporters say it will protect the patients who visit these clinics from being harassed -- but protesters say it infringes on their free speech rights.

Host: Michael Krasny

Guests:

  • David Campos, San Francisco supervisor representing District 9
  • Cathleen Gillies, co-coordinator of 40 Days for Life in San Francisco, a group of volunteers who promote ending abortion through prayer vigils outside abortion facilities
