Bryan, Texas – Westchester County is in retreat, backpedaling on its bigoted 100-foot buffer zone targeting peaceful prayer after a fearless legal stand by 40 Days for Life. This significant development has resulted in a case advancing to the Supreme Court, laying bare the unconstitutional attempts to suppress free speech and religious freedom that protect the unborn.

The President/CEO of 40 Days for Life, Shawn Carney, issued a triumphant statement:

"Westchester County supports Planned Parenthood, so they targeted 40 Days for Life by banning us from the public square with an insane 100-foot buffer zone. Their bigotry blinded them to the law, and now that we are suing and the case will go to the Supreme Court and end all buffer zones, they are reeling and trying to amend their unconstitutional law. This is a great example of why we must go on offense to defend basic free speech in the face of bigoted woke politicians who seek to silence those who disagree with them. 40 Days for Life embraces public discourse and will fight to keep it legal in America."

40 Days for Life's General Counsel, Matt Britton, further illuminated the situation:

"This amendment was expected and was frankly Westchester County’s only way out of its blatantly unconstitutional ordinance that specifically targets not just free speech, but a particular kind of free speech: The protection of the unborn. This latest assault on the pro-life movement cracked under pressure, as they all will, and 40 Days for Life will continue to challenge this and other unlawful, unconstitutional, and discriminatory laws as they arise.”

Westchester County's desperate efforts to amend the unconstitutional law clearly show retreat under pressure. 40 Days for Life's relentless legal challenge is forcing those who sought to silence them to reconsider their unjust position.

This victory underscores the power of righteous offense and is a testament to the resilience of those fighting for the unborn. When standing firm against attempts to stifle free speech, those who oppose justice are forced to run away. 40 Days for Life's pursuit of justice has sent a clear message: the fight for righteousness and the unborn will always prevail.
