Charlotte/Mecklenburg Sued Over Social Distancing Citations to ProLife Activists

CHARLOTTE – Social distancing restrictions implemented by municipalities have been some of the most egregious examples of government overreach during the coronavirus pandemic panic. From blocking access to non-residents, to curfews, to arresting and citing Pro-Life advocates for simply praying outside an abortion clinic while minding social distancing policies.

On account of the latter, the Queen City of Charlotte and Mecklenburg County are being sued.

The inconsistent enforcement of these social distancing orders has manifested in some groups being targeted more than others. Churchgoers and Pro-Life activists have been some of those targets, and we hope the courts are able to clarify for local government exactly what the constitution means.
