The following quote may be attributed to National Institute of Family and Life Advocates President Thomas Glessner regarding President Donald Trump’s executive order aimed at strengthening child-welfare programs nationwide:
“NIFLA envisions an America where all human life — born and unborn, regardless of infirmities, handicaps, age, gender or race — is protected under the law and cherished in the hearts of our citizens. However, we cannot talk about the end of abortion in America without mentioning adoption as a solution. America’s adoptive parents are heroes. We applaud President Donald Trump’s executive order strengthening the U.S. child welfare system as a major step toward achieving this goal.”
The National Institute of Family and Life Advocates is a national nonprofit providing legal counsel, education and training for pro-life pregnancy centers and medical clinics. Representing a network of more than 1,500 pregnancy centers nationwide, NIFLA has challenged laws targeting its members in several states — including California, Hawaii, Illinois, North Dakota and New York. The NIFLA v. Becerra ruling in favor of the free speech rights of pregnancy centers and all Americans was released on June 26, 2018.
