Free speech is not welcome in Winter Park after a group of 28 protestors protested the home of Planned Parenthood Orlando CEO. They made her cry.
The city council of a Florida municipality has voted to ban protests in residential areas following a recent picket at the home of a Planned Parenthood CEO.
On August 27th, in a vote of 4 to 1, the City of Winter Park passed a 60-day emergency ordinance to bar protests from being held within 50 feet of a residence. Last week, the city made the ban permanent.
The ordinance was passed in direct response to a picket that was conducted at the home of Jenna Tosh, the CEO of Planned Parenthood of Orlando. Tosh testified before city council, stating that she “felt threatened and ambushed” by the protesters being outside of her home.
According to reports, 28 pro-life supporters gathered outside of the Tosh residence on a Saturday morning as Jenna Tosh and her husband Andrew were out for a walk along with their young son and dog. A neighbor was believed to have called the police, and when Tosh returned and saw the group spread out along the public sidewalk surrounding her home, she reportedly burst into tears.
