Action Needed: Freedom of Speech in Jeopardy in Charlotte

The Charlotte City Council’s new strategy to silence the prolife voices of the Love Life ministry is by implementing a noise buffer, i.e., quiet zone, at the “A Preferred Women’s Health” abortion clinic on Latrobe Drive.

The quiet zone would ban singing and praying loudly and would be banned around “health care” facilities. As you know, this is meant to deter our pro-life presence and voice. This is an assault on freedom of speech and assembly, both protections enshrined in the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution. Watch the video at the Love Life page for more information.

North Carolinians, your freedoms are at stake!  If this is allowed in Charlotte, mark my words, it will be allowed across our great state.

It is crucial that as many people as possible contact the Charlotte City Council members, as well as attend the council’s Neighborhood Development Committee Meeting  this Wednesday, April 17, in which the council plans to vote on this matter.

Take Action:

  •  Please call and email the Charlotte City Council members before noon on Wednesday and voice your opposition to this proposed unconstitutional ordinance. Please respectfully tell them no further restrictions are needed on the already established ordinance.
