Obama Position Rejected 9-0 in McCullen v. Coakley

by Ed Whelan

Just a reminder that the Obama administration, in its amicus brief in McCullen v. Coakley (the buffer-zone case decided yesterday), argued that the Massachusetts statute was fine and dandy. Indeed, the Solicitor General’s office asked to, and was allowed to, participate in the oral argument at the Court.

The fact that all nine justices ruled against the Obama administration’s position is yet another indicator of how hostile the Obama administration is to speech it disfavors and how aggressive it is in pursuing its extremist pro-abortion agenda.
