In the summer of 2008, a number of pro-life demonstrators were arrested in Harford County. Some of the young women were subjected to multiple strip searches. The pro-lifers subsequently filed civil suit, with the assistance of the Alliance Defense Fund, American Catholic Lawyers' Association and the Thomas More Society. Defend Life, to which I link on the right side bar, was one of the plaintiffs.
On July 13th, federal judge Richard Bennett ruled in favor of the pro-life plaintiffs, agreeing that their First and Fourth Amendment rights were utterly disregarded by Maryland state troopers. We congratulate our pro-life colleagues and give thanks to God.
