NIFLA stands for life in the highest courts of the land, fighting unconstitutional legislation targeting its member centers.Whenever a pro-life medical center and its mission is threatened by anti-life policies, mothers and their unborn children are also under attack. NIFLA is their last line of legal defense. Below is complete information about the case being brought in front of the United States Supreme Court, NIFLA v. Becerra
Pro-life Supreme Court Case: NIFLA v. Becerra
In 2015 California passed AB 775, the so-called "Reproductive FACT Act.” This law mandates that medical pro-life pregnancy centers provide written or digital information to their patients - such as a sign in the waiting room - on how to obtain a state-funded abortion. This means that nonprofit pro-life medical clinics as well as their staff and volunteers are being forced to violate their consciences - an outright violation of their First Amendment rights.
In defense of the 135 California pregnancy centers that it represents, NIFLA filed a lawsuit challenging this legislation. Arguments for this landmark pro-life free speech case will be heard by the U.S. Supreme Court on March 20, 2018.
Fighting for Freedom of Speech While Standing for Life
What's At Stake
Should the government be able to force a pregnancy center—that exists solely to further its pro-life mission—to tell women where they can get an abortion? Of course not.
The state of California has passed a law targeting these pregnancy centers to advertise for the abortion industry even in their very own clinics.
On March 20, 2018, Alliance Defending Freedom will stand before the United States Supreme Court and argue on behalf of National Institute of Family and Life Advocates (NIFLA) and its affiliated pregnancy centers in California. The outcome of the case—NIFLA v. Becerra—could not only affect the freedom of speech for every American, but it could save innocent lives.
