(Re-post of Heartbeat International)
Today, the Supreme Court of the United States announced their decision in NIFLA v. Becerra. The case is a challenge to the so-called “Reproductive FACT Act” which the state of California established in 2015.
NIFLA has been fighting this good fight in courts ever since, and today we are grateful to say free speech lives!
In a 5-4 decision, the justices have rightly supported the freedom of speech of over 200 pro-life pregnancy centers and medical clinics in California, so we can continue to help women choose life without being forced to post a state-sponsored message of abortion.
This is an unquestionably major triumph for U.S. pregnancy centers working to save families from the sting of abortion.
Today’s ruling is the latest—and most significant—court victory for pro-life pregnancy centers which have been the target of similarly onerous free speech restrictions in New York, Connecticut, Maryland, Texas, Hawaii, and Illinois, so today, we celebrate!
Thank you for your prayers and for following this case over the last three years. We hope that you celebrate today with us as we rejoice in this victory for life!
Thank you for continuing to champion life,
