Take a Stand for Free Speech!

A pro-life man, Joe Holland, was unjustly arrested for praying outside a Chicago Planned Parenthood Abortion facility on July 3, 2010. He is accused of violating the city's new "Bubble Zone" Ordinance.

According to the Thomas Moore Society, legally representing the pro-lifer:

"The "Bubble Zone" ordinance prohibits approaching within eight feet of a person, without consent, "for the purpose of passing a leaflet or handbill to, displaying a sign to, or engaging in oral protest, education, or counseling." According to witnesses and available video, Holland was engaged solely in prayer activity and not in leafletting, picketing or "sidewalk counseling." Video of Holland's alleged disorderly conduct can be viewed here"

Please sign this petition to Mayor Daley to DROP THE CHARGES against Joe Holland!
