The following statement may be attributed to NIFLA President Thomas Glessner regarding the unconscionable murder of George Floyd:

“NIFLA is a pro-life organization that believes in the sanctity of human life, born and unborn. The outrageous murder of George Floyd is an affront to all who hold life sacred. Every American should be deeply concerned about this violation of the most fundamental human right—the right to life. In the same token, taking innocent human life through riots and mob justice is also a discredit to the life of George Floyd. Violence in America against any innocent human life must stop or America will lose its very soul.”



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.
