The following quote may be attributed to National Institute of Family and Life Advocates President Thomas Glessner following Tuesday’s Supreme Court ruling. The decision reinstates federal regulations requiring individuals seeking abortion pills to obtain them through an in-person visit with a medical provider.
“In its first abortion case since Justice Amy Coney Barrett joined the court, SCOTUS has ruled to protect women from dangerous abortion drugs. This ruling represents a major pro-life victory against an abortion industry that consistently puts profit margins ahead of the welfare of mothers and unborn babies. We commend SCOTUS for acknowledging the abortion pill safety concerns cited by the FDA. We hope these federal regulations protecting women will remain in place and that this will be the first of many such rulings to come.”
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 across the nation, 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 pro-life pregnancy centers and all Americans was released on June 26, 2018.
