Washington, D.C. – Today, the U.S. Supreme Court handed the pro-life movement a victory in the case of NIFLA v. Becerra, stating that the California law, called the Reproductive Fact Act, forcing pro-life help centers to promote abortion was unduly burdensome to free speech rights and was therefore unconstitutional.
The following quote is attributable to Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue:
We are grateful that the First Amendment Right to Free Speech has prevailed and that pro-life pregnancy centers will be protected from forced promotion of abortion. Those of us with deeply held beliefs that abortion is a moral injustice now cannot be forced to capitulate to an unjust government demand that we promote this human rights abuse.
We are grateful to Tom Glessner and the National Institute of Family and Life Associates (NIFLA) for bearing the burden of challenging this unconstitutional law.
