The following statement regarding the Supreme Court ruling in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization may be attributed to National Institute of Family and Life Advocates President Thomas Glessner:
“NIFLA celebrates the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization. Today, we join millions of pro-life Americans who are praising God because our goal is to achieve an abortion-free America by building a culture of life.
“As stated in the opinion: ‘We hold that Roe and Casey must be overruled. The Constitution makes no reference to abortion, and no such right is implicitly protected by any constitutional provision … .’ ‘It is time to heed the Constitution and return the issue of abortion to the people’s elected representatives.’
“While we rejoice that America has entered a post-Roe era, we know the battle for life is not over. NIFLA will continue to support women, babies and families during times of trouble. We will continue to protect and equip our nationwide network of more than 1,600 pregnancy centers as they lead the way in building a culture of life. The work of these centers will become more critical than ever as they provide women with the all life-affirming resources they need in a post-Roe 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.
