The following quote may be attributed to National Institute of Family and Life Advocates President and Founder Thomas Glessner regarding Monday’s SCOTUS decision not to hear a challenge to the Sixth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeal’s ruling requiring ultrasounds before abortion:
“We applaud SCOTUS’ decision to uphold the Sixth Circuit’s ruling mandating that doctors show the child in the womb using ultrasound as part of informed consent before abortions.
In declining to hear this appeal, the Supreme Court has declared this law constitutional. This victory could indicate good news for a decision to hear a Supreme Court challenge to a similar Indiana law.”
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.
