Sounds reasonable:
The town council in Rossville, Ga. on Monday voted to ban abortion clinics because the mayor was worried about the "drama" one would bring to the city, according to the Chattanooga Times Free Press.

"We want to be a peaceful city," Rossville Mayor Teddy Harris said during a council meeting. "We don't want to have any protesters."

There were not any clinics in the town before the ordinance passed and the measure still allows abortions if they are performed at a hospital.

"I just don't think (clinics) are appropriate for our city," Harris explained at the meeting.
Neat strategy.

Somehow I have the suspicion that the "ban the thing being protested to keep the peace" strategy would not be employed if a bunch of feminist women showed up to protest some local men-only organization.
