Adult and child pro-abortion protesters crossed paths with nudist activists in Los Angeles, California, during a protest following the Supreme Court ruling on Friday that overturned the unconstitutional Roe. v. Wade decision.
Nudity laws are generally enforceable, but courts are less likely to enforce them when nudity is intended to make a political statement. Political speech is one of the most protected types of speech, and certain actions can be considered political speech. Therefore, if a defendant undresses to make a point, the nudist can argue that their nudity is political speech and protected by the First Amendment.
