The following quote may be attributed to National Institute of Family and Life Advocates President Thomas Glessner:
“NIFLA is thrilled that unborn babies in the state of Texas will be protected from slaughter. We congratulate Texas for being the first state in America to ban killing innocent children in the womb as early as six weeks in pregnancy. Furthermore, we applaud the U.S. Supreme Court for allowing the ban to take effect and saving lives.
“This development holds positive ramifications for future SCOTUS cases and for our nation. As NIFLA argued in our Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization brief, the high court must end the crime against humanity that is abortion and gut Roe v. Wade. Today, we are one step closer to this goal.
“Life is winning. NIFLA’s network of more than 1,600 pregnancy centers and medical clinics stands at the ready to help mothers and babies in a post-Roe America. We are here to empower the choice of life.”
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 1,600 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 Supreme Court’s NIFLA v. Becerra ruling protected the free speech rights of pro-life pregnancy centers and all Americans.
