WASHINGTON, June 27, 2003 ( – The U.S. Supreme Court has rejected the right of pro-life activists to use “Wanted Ad” style posters to draw negative attention to abortionists.  The “Nuremberg Files”, for example, listed the names and addresses of abortionists—the very name implying that they are similar to the regime of Nazi Germany, some of whose members were tried at Nuremberg after World War II. The site indicated that three of the abortionists had been killed by crossing out their names and faces, giving the page the appearance of an active hit list.  The court rejected an appeal from two pro-life groups arguing that the First Amendment protects such advertising. The judges wrote that the Constitution does not protect threats of violence.  For newswire coverage:
