The Supreme Court says a California law that forces anti-abortion crisis pregnancy centers to provide information about abortion probably violates the Constitution.
U.S. Senator Ben Sasse issued the following statement regarding the Supreme Courts 5-4 decision in favor of free speech rights for pro-life crisis pregnancy centers in NIFLA v Becerra.
“This pro-speech, pro-life decision is great news for everyone who loves the First Amendment. The Supreme Court got this right: government should not force Americans to contradict their deepest beliefs with mandatory, state-sponsored speech. We want to work out disagreements with passionate debate and honest persuasion, not government-mandated scripts.”
The ruling Tuesday also casts doubts on similar laws in Hawaii and Illinois.
