(Worthy News) - The U.S. Supreme Court ruling in favor of pro-life crisis pregnancy centers should encourage those resisting bans on counseling services for individuals dealing with unwanted sexual struggles and gender confusion, according to a family advocate's analysis of Clarence Thomas' opinion.
Last week, the high court, in NIFLA v. Becerra, handed down a narrow 5-4 win to a network of pregnancy centers in California who objected to a state law compelling them to advertise abortion services. But the text of the majority opinion effectively overturns restrictions on therapists who assist people with unwanted same-sex attraction and gender confusion, which is particularly relevant given bans on what is often derisively referred to as "conversion therapy," argues Curtis Schube, legal counsel for the Pennsylvania Family Institute.
"For too long laws in some jurisdictions have mischaracterized and banned these important services," Schube said in a email to The Christian Post on Friday. [ Source: Christian Post (Read More...) ]
