    Walter Hoye Vs. The City of Oakland Union City, CA (Issues4Life Foundation) On Tuesday, August 4th, 2009 federal district court judge Charles Breyer ruled Oakland’s “Mother May I” ordinance constitutional, setting the stage for a showdown in the 9th Circuit. In a 25-page memorandum opinion, Breyer held that the ordinance, which applies only outside abortion facilities, was not content- or viewpoint-based on its face. The court also ruled that the ordinance was narrowly tailored, even though it prohibits merely extending one’s hand with a leaflet to a woman seeking to enter an abortion clinic. The ordinance, passed in February 2008,...
  • District Attorney Seeks Life Time Ban For Walter Hoye

    Union City, CA- At a hearing Monday before Alameda County Superior Court Judge Stuart Hing, deputy district attorney Masanao Morimoto revealed that the District Attorney is seeking to ban Walter Hoye from ever returning to the Family Planning Specialists clinic in Oakland, California. Hoye was arrested last year for violating Oakland's "Mother May I" law. Following his conviction, he was sentenced to 30 days in jail and an $1100 fine, plus three years' probation during which time he was ordered to stay 100 yards from the clinic. Hoye exercised his right to turn down probation, but the judge proceeded to...

    After having served 18 days in prison, the Rev. Walter Hoye is a free man and will remain so — as long as he doesn’t come within eight feet of anyone who is about to enter an Oakland abortion clinic. That hasn’t stopped the 52-year-old minister from returning to the public sidewalk outside the Family Planning Specialists Medical Group building near Jack London Square, the site of his arrest last May that resulted in his incarceration at Santa Rita Jail in Dublin earlier this year. Hoye, executive elder of the Progressive Missionary Baptist Church in south Berkeley, is on a...

    A crowd estimated at between 300 and 1100 people gathered on Sunday, May 17, outside the San Diego County Administration Building for a “Choose Life!” rally. The rally was scheduled to coincide with President Barack Obama’s commencement speech at Notre Dame University. Event organizers said the official crowd estimate by San Diego police was 1100. Speakers included the Rev. Walter Hoye, a Baptist minister who was jailed for violating Oakland’s so-called “bubble ordinance,” and UCLA student Lila Rose, who has spearheaded a series of undercover investigations that have exposed Planned Parenthood cover-ups of statutory rape laws in various states across...

    OAKLAND — After 18 days in jail for violating a city law designed to protect women entering abortion clinics, a Berkeley church elder went free Tuesday with a wider, louder network of anti-abortion supporters than before he went to trial. The sidewalk near Jack London Square that Walter Hoye patrolled weekly — accompanied by two elderly church women — drew a crowd of a few dozen protesters Tuesday morning for another in a series of vigils aimed at painting the law as an attack on free speech. Now, as Hoye pushes to reverse a judge's order to stay away from...

    The Rev. Walter Hoye, the Berkeley pastor sent to jail for violating Oakland’s abortion clinic ‘bubble ordinance,’ has been released after serving 18 days of his 30-day sentence. A source close to the case told California Catholic Daily that Hoye’s sentence was reduced by 10 days for “good behavior,” plus additional credit by the sentencing judge for the time Hoye spent confined in a patrol car after his arrest. Hoye walked out of the Santa Rita Jail in Dublin at 12:45 p.m. on Tuesday. One of his last visitors while incarcerated was Oakland Bishop-designate Salvatore Cordileone, who met with Hoye...

    I would like to put out an action call across America and get priests, pastors and everybody who believes in righteousness to come stand up for a pastor jailed for abortion activism and get the trumped-up charges dropped. It is incredible that an individual can be sentenced to a month of jail for exercising his right to free speech on a sidewalk. Rev. Walter Hoye of Berkeley, California, was ordered to serve 30 days in county jail by Judge Stuart Hing of the Alameda Superior Court. Rev. Hoye had been found guilty Jan. 15, 2009, of "unlawfully approaching" two persons...

    Pastor jailed for Oakland anti-abortion acts Henry K. Lee, Chronicle Staff Writer Friday, March 20, 2009 A pastor at a Berkeley church was jailed Friday for 30 days after unsuccessfully arguing that an order requiring him to stay 100 yards away from an Oakland abortion clinic violates his right to free speech. Walter Hoye, 52, of Union City was the first person convicted under an Oakland ordinance barring protesters from coming within 8 feet of anyone entering an abortion clinic. In February, Judge Stuart Hing of Alameda County Superior Court sentenced Hoye to three years' probation, 30 days in jail...
