-US COURT CASE AGAINST ANTI-ABORTION WEB SITE.

TELECOMWORLDWIRE-(C) 1994-9 M2 COMMUNICATIONS LTD The first witness has been heard in the multimillion-dollar US court case against a number of anti-abortion activists, whose web site, called the Nuremberg Files, allegedly incites to murder. According to the Associated Press, the site lists names, addresses and other personal information of doctors who perform abortions. The plaintiffs, Planned Parenthood and a group of doctors, claim that the site violates a federal law that forbids activists from inciting violence against doctors who perform abortions and against their patients. The plaintiffs' side is also trying to link anti-abortion posters and statements to the web site, to prove a wider campaign. The defendants maintain that the site and the posters are constitutionally protected political speech.
