The Supreme Court has struck down a 35-foot protest-free zone outside abortion clinics in Massachusetts.
    
The justices were unanimous Thursday that extending a buffer zone 35 feet from clinic entrances violates the First Amendment rights of protesters.
    
Chief Justice John Roberts says authorities have less intrusive ways to deal with problems outside the clinics.
