Thomas More Society Asks Supreme Court for Reversal of Colorado State Court Injunction that Bans “Graphic Photos” of Aborted Babies

Chicago’s Thomas More Society petitioned the U.S. Supreme Court to review and overturn a Colorado state court decree barring Denver pro-life advocates from “displaying large posters or similar displays, depicting gruesome images of mutilated fetuses or dead bodies in a manner reasonably likely to be viewed by children under 12 years of age attending worship services…” Pro-life advocates Ken Scott, Clifton Powell, and others led a pro-life witness outside Denver’s Saint John’s Church in the Wilderness (aka Saint John’s Cathedral). The annual event took place concurrently with the church’s outdoor Palm Sunday procession several years ago.

QUESTIONS PRESENTED
1. May the government restrict the display of 
“gruesome”
material within political, moral, and reli-gious advocacy in a traditional public forum, in orderto protect the sensibilities of children? There is a con-flict on this question among state courts of last resortand federal circuit courts.2. The injunction in the case below also containedseparate provisions that
(unlike the “gruesome i
m-
ages” provision)
were facially content-neutral. Butthe tort judgments on which the injunction wasbased expressly relied in part on the supposedlyharmful
content of defendants’
speech. Should suchprovisions of an injunction be subjected to strict scru-tiny?
