[Washington Examiner] – Supreme Court free speech case could destroy a generation’s rights to life and speech

Published November 27, 2017 by The Daily Signal: On Nov. 13, the Supreme Court announced it will hear arguments in a case with serious implications for free speech nationwide.

In National Institute of Family and Life Advocates vs. Becerra, the court will decide whether pro-life advocates must refer clients to abortion clinics or face fines, penalties, and possible closure.

The basic question the court must decide is whether the government can force pregnancy resource centers to speak a message that they fundamentally disagree with. California says yes. The National Institute of Family and Life Advocates (NIFLA) says no.

The implications are stark for Americans across the board, Americans as diverse pro-life advocates, anti-war flag burners, and NFL anthem kneelers. None should be forced to follow government speech. The government may as well be able to force Alcoholics Anonymous to advertise for beer, or to force Hindus to advertise the sale of hamburger meat
