The following quote may be attributed to National Institute of Family and Life Advocates President Thomas Glessner regarding President Trump’s Proclamation of National Sanctity of Life Day:

“For nearly 30 years NIFLA has worked to create a culture where all life — born and unborn, regardless of infirmities, handicaps, age, or gender — is protected under the law and cherished in the hearts of the citizens of our republic. This proclamation on the anniversary of the tragic decision of Roe v. Wade renews our spirits and our resolve to achieve an abortion-free America.

Through efforts to reject anti-life legislation, appoint pro-life officials and dispel the concept of abortion as a fundamental human right, this administration has inspired the pro-life movement. Furthermore, it has advanced pro-life initiatives in ways never before seen. NIFLA applauds President Trump’s commitment to defending innocent human life both at home and abroad.”


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.
