    This is an interesting case. It would seem to me that, if the hospital can demonstrate that her advocacy interferes with the ability of the hospital to perform its function (which making it a target for attacks would certainly seem to qualify), then restricting her speech might be warranted. It doesn’t strike me that this is a political speech matter… but maybe I’m missing something.Report

      You need to be able to demonstrate harm, I think.
      Which means actual death threats, and actual need to hire MORE security.
      I remind you that people do shoot up hospitals, and not always because of abortion.Report

        If I were an anti-abortion legislator, I’d be plenty nervous about harms that thin. After all, the harm case is easier the other way (every turned-away abortion is revenue the hospital lost).Report
