BURLINGTON, VERMONT, May 22, 2012, ( – The city council of Burlington, Vermont, has passed a new ordinance that could have the effect of banning pro-life protesters from exercising their right to protest in front of the town’s Planned Parenthood facility.

On Monday, council members voted to establish a 35-foot “safety zone” about the town’s abortion clinic by a vote of 13-1. Republican Paul Decelles cast the lone dissenting vote. The measure now goes to a three-member Ordinance Committee for final wording.

Ten council members supported the measure going in, although the Burlington Free Press reports pro-life and pro-choice citizens who attended the more than hour-long meeting at Contois Auditorium were “roughly equal.”

Scary quote from the article:

Vermont allows nurse practitioners, physician assistants, and nurse midwives to perform abortions.

There are some pretty horrible MD's who practice abortions. To open the field for those who practice abortion to folks who do not need to go to Med School for 4 years and 3 years as a Resident is scary
