McCullen V Coakley - Critical Bubble Zone Case

The United States Supreme Court will hear arguments in the above-named case beginning tomorrow.  This case, originating in Boston, deals directly with bubble zones and the First Amendment rights of sidewalk counselors as we seek to offer help to abortion-minded women.  Read here and here.  Do Eleanor McCullen and Mary O'Donnell, the two sidewalk counselors, look menacing?  They're in their late 70s and early 80s.  But they are praying and offering real assistance to women.  So I suppose they are threats - to the bottom lines of the Planned Parenthood abortuary.

Please pray for a just ruling in this case - not only for the First Amendment rights of the sidewalk counselors, but so that we aren't further impeded from offering help to moms and their babies.
