Madison city council member wants "buffer zone" at abortion clinics

MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - A Madison City Council member says most of her colleagues support her idea of creating legal buffer zones at abortion facilities in Wisconsin's capital.  

Under Lisa Subeck's measure, protestors would have to stay at least eight feet away from others within a 160 foot protective zone of an abortion clinic.  

The proposal comes as the U.S. Supreme Court is about to consider a Massachusetts law which keeps protestors 35 feet away from clinic entrances.  

State attorneys are scheduled to argue their case before the nation's highest court Wednesday.  

The group Vigil for Life has protestors at Madison's Planned Parenthood abortion clinic. They say they respect the clinic's parking lot and private property -- and for them, it already creates a buffer.
