City council candidate McKay to speak on Planned Parenthood Protests
Kate McKay will be addressing the city council tomorrow evening, Wednesday July 24th, on the issue of Planned
Parenthood on Grand Avenue. McKay, having made her point known to Foti on the street, will now bring her information before the public during this council meeting. Foti is the Belmont resident who is known for his graphic fetus signs that he brings to his protests of Planned Parenthood in multiple cities. Recently San Francisco has ruled on a larger ‘bubble’ around Planned Parenthood for the safety of patients wanting to utilize services at the clinic without being accosted by Foti and his group. The SF Board of Supervisors voted unanimous to increase the 8 foot buffer to a 25-foot buffer zone around entrances. In 2009 Foti was arrested and required to go before the San Mateo County Superior Court in a case relating to Foti being banned from St. Matthews church due in part to his graphic pictures.
