About this Case
Numerous petitions have been filed with the Supreme Court of the United States, asking it to review regulations requiring crisis pregnancy centers to post messages inside their facilities that are at odds with their pro-life messages. The National Legal Foundation has been involved in these cases for 5 years and have addressed our views to the Supreme Court of the United States in 3 of those cases. Finally, the Supreme Court agreed to review one the case noted here, National Institute of Family and Life Advocates v. Becerra.
Summary of NLF's Brief
We joined together with the National Association of Evangelicals, Concerned Women for America, the Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission of the Southern Baptist Commission , and Samaritan’s Purse to file a brief in this critical case to argue that the Supreme Court should find this law—and all others like it—are unconstitutional. But more importantly, our groups noted that that does not mean that other laws, for example, those supporting informed consent for women considering abortion, are also unconstitutional. We provided detailed reasons why this is so. In sum, we explained why states and localities cannot force crisis pregnancy centers to speak pro-abortion messages yet can themselves speak pro-life messages via legislation.
