Pro-life properties

Making the world pro-life, one property at a time. This company helps folks add deed restrictions to their property, in an attempt to deny people the right to perform abortions or counseling on the property.

From their FAQ:

...The prohibitions “run with the land” and will remain in effect for any future owners of your property. This creates an accumulative effect as abortion prohibitions are placed on more and more properties over time.

I imagine this is the kind of out-of-the-box thinking that excites neocons no end. I wonder how I'd regard it if I was pro-abortion. It seems pretty wrong-headed to me. Really, let's fill the world with land that has more and more deed restrictions. There's no chance all land will be covered, but there's some chance it'll make things tough for some clinic down the line.

  1. How can you prohibit people from doing something legal with a piece of property in perpetuity? Wouldn't that be an issue of zoning (ie, you can't smoke in a public establishment in many cities but you can smoke in a private home, so being zoned for commercial use only might de facto ban smoking). This does seem like it would allow for similar practices to ban other legal activities that neocons might LIKE. I'd like to ban the creation of golf courses or the holding of formal religious ceremonies on my property, for example.
