Abortion Speech Law Case Heard at Supreme Court; Pro-Life Advocates Anticipate Win

(Worthy News) - Hundreds of pro-life advocates assembled on the steps of the Supreme Court to rally in support of crisis pregnancy centers, contesting a California law which compels them to advertise and promote abortion.

The nation's highest court heard oral arguments Tuesday in the case of National Institute of Family and Life Advocates v. Becerra.

At issue is whether or not a California statute, the Reproductive Freedom, Accountability, Comprehensive Care, and Transparency Act (also known as the Reproductive FACT Act), which requires pro-life pregnancy centers to provide specific information to their patients, including the availability of free or low-cost abortions, is constitutional. Attorneys for NIFLA argue that the free speech rights of the people staffing these centers are being violated while the state of California maintains that such centers are dispensing false and misleading information and that the law is necessary.
