Madison, Wis. anti-speech bubble zones suspended…for now

Monday, March 10, 2014

The following quote may be attributed to Alliance Defending Freedom Senior Legal Counsel Matt Bowman regarding the city of Madison’s decision Friday to suspend its anti-speech “bubble zone” ordinance for possible modification in the wake of a lawsuit against it in Madison Vigil for Life v. City of Madison:

“No one should want the government to gag speech just because it doesn’t reflect the government’s views or the views of abortionists. For that reason, we are pleased that the anti-speech ordinance did not go into effect as scheduled, and we welcome the city’s attempt to reconsider it in the wake of our lawsuit. We will monitor the city council’s decisions as we continue our fight to protect free speech for the people of Madison.”
