Marsha’s Place Plays Role in Abortion Pill Reversal Bill

NIFLA member Marsha’s Place Pregnancy Resource Center in Henderson is one of only two pregnancy centers in Kentucky to offer Abortion Pill Reversal. This life-saving process can reverse the abortive effects of the drug mifepristone, which is administered to women in order to induce medical abortions.

Abortion Dominates Headlines: No Justice for Jennifer, NIFLA Center Vandalized

Abortion-related news dominated headlines over the past few weeks.

Victory! Hawaii Pregnancy Centers Won’t Be Forced to Promote Abortion

By Sarah Kramer Free speech doesn’t just mean that we are free to speak the messages we choose. It also means that we cannot be forced to speak messages with which we disagree. The Supreme Court made this clear in National Institute of Family and Life Advocates (NIFLA) v. Becerra when it ruled against a California law that forced pro-life pregnancy centers to advertise for abortion. Such a law is not only unconstitutional, but also violates federal […]
