Pennsylvania Buffer Zone Law (SB 1208)


Number: SB 1208

Status: Failed to Pass

Proposed: January 16, 2014



This law is PRO-CHOICE.

Last updated Feb 17, 2015.

SB 1208 would have prohibited knowingly congregating, patrolling, picketing, or demonstrating in a zone extending 15 feet from an entrance to or exit from a health-care facility.

The limited buffer zones would have allowed patients to have safe and unimpeded access to medical services without impairing the constitutional rights of protesters to communicate their message to their intended audience.
