Supreme Court Rules In Favor Of Abortion Protestors...

A victory for free speech? I certainly hope so. Using the RICO statute as the Sword of Damocles whenever an anti-abortion group became vocal was never something that sat well with me. I'm dead-set against threatening anyone with physical violence, and want to see people who harm other people sent directly to jail, but RICO'ing those against abortion is way out of line in most instances.

Stop The ACLU has it's take, and yes, the ACLU detests RICO, but only when PETA Puppies or No-Nuke-Nuts are threatened by it. When the anti-abortionists are taken before a judge the ACLU files briefs in favor of throwing RICO at them in full force.
