The following quote may be attributed to National Institute of Family and Life Advocates President Thomas Glessner:
“Today, we stand united to see an end to abortion in our land. We believe that an abortion-free America is possible. Upholding the Mississippi law in question will cut out the heart of Roe v. Wade and open the door for states to protect the lives of the unborn.
“NIFLA’s network of more than 1,600 pro-life pregnancy centers has been on the front lines of the fight for life for decades. Our efforts to love, support and protect both mother and child will continue in every community throughout the nation regardless of the outcome in today’s case. We will not stop until the bloodshed of the innocent ceases and protection of human life prevails.”
The following statement may be attributed to National Institute of Family and Life Advocates Vice President of Legal Affairs Anne O’Connor:
“The infamous Roe v. Wade has seen its last days. The lie that abortion helps women is being dismantled. Women do not need abortion to be equal with men. Women can thrive at school, work and anywhere in society and still promote the idea that equality begins in the womb.
“Women no longer need to turn to abortion because they believe they have no other choice. As civilized, educated people, we must value all human life. Through a network of compassionate pregnancy centers and life-affirming laws and support, women are empowered to be all they can be. May God guide the Supreme Court and may God bless America.”
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.
