The following quote may be attributed to National Institute of Family and Life Advocates President Thomas Glessner regarding the abortion industry’s continued attempts to exploit the pandemic in order to enforce its political agenda.

“As Planned Parenthood and abortion industry advocates sue to keep their doors open for elective abortions, pro-life pregnancy centers and medical clinics continue to provide life-saving services to women and children in their communities.

NIFLA’s commitment to equipping and protecting pro-life pregnancy centers has not changed as America faces the COVID-19 pandemic. We are helping our network of more than 1,500 centers nationwide to pivot and meet essential needs during the difficult conditions brought on by the coronavirus. While advising our members to follow federal and CDC guidelines and reduce exposure risks, NIFLA is hosting weekly online training with updates, policies and procedures designed to help centers operate during the rapidly-evolving crisis without shutting down.”



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.
