Suit was filed this week in a California federal district court challenging California’s recently enacted SB 742 which creates a 30-foot floating buffer zone to prevent harassment or interference with any person who is entering or exiting a vaccination site. The buffer zone applies to anyone within 100 feet from the vaccination site entrance. The complaint (full text) in Right To Life of Central California v. Bonta, (ED CA, filed 10/13/2021), raises the challenge in a unique factual context. Right to Life is an organization that attempts to dissuade women from having abortions and which provides support to pregnant women and those who have had abortions. Its Outreach Center is located next door to a Planned Parenthood clinic and its staff regularly approaches women who are entering Planned Parenthood. The new law prevents this– even when outreach staff is on its own property– because the contiguous Planned Parenthood Center offers HPV vaccine. The complaint alleges that the new law violates plaintiff’s 1st and 14th Amendment rights. ADF issued a press release announcing the filing of the lawsuit.
