Justices get a buffer zone, but women seeking care do not?

A police officer stood watch outside Planned Parenthood on Commonwealth Avenue in Boston Thursday.

With respect to the buffer zone ruling (“Buffer zones ruled illegal,” Page A1, June 27): If I work for or am involved with the SUPREME Court, I am protected because there is a buffer zone there. If I seek reproductive health care in Massachusetts, I do not enjoy the same right to safety or to privacy.

And, please, do not patronize me with promises of “counseling” by the citizens who are bearing judgmental signs and, for some reason, are overly interested in my personal health care. This doesn’t happen at my dentist’s or physician’s office.

If I want counseling, I will seek it from a certified, educated, and licensed provider.
