Abortion Clinic Access Bill Signing President Clinton joined Vice President Gore, Attorney General Reno, and several members of the House and Senate to sign the Abortion Clinic Access Bill into law. The bill stiffens punishment of those who choose try to block access to abortion clinics. The vice president spoke first, mentioning the need to advance women’s health and discourage violence. Attorney General Reno congratulated members of Congress for their leadership, and commended private citizens who worked diligently in support of the legislation. She stated a firm belief that the Abortion Clinic Access Bill fights rising lawlessness while protecting women, abortion providers, and the first amendment rights of abortion protestors. President Clinton asserted the necessity to protect the freedoms of our citizens, and declared the bill a means of protecting the constitutional right to privacy and yet safeguarding the first amendment. Abortion protestors can no longer put themselves above the law, the president said. He offered the murder of Dr. David Gund as an example of when protest is no longer “pro-life.” President Clinton also hoped that this legislation would engage individuals of opposing sides in conversation rather than violence. close
