TITUSVILLE, FL — Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, today commented on the Supreme Court’s decision in NIFLA vs. Becerra, which found that a California law requiring pregnancy care centers to tell clients that free and low-cost abortion is available elsewhere likely violates the First Amendment.
“It’s a great day for free speech, religious liberty and the pro-life movement,” Father Pavone said. “Perhaps laws like the one at the center of this case will fall out of favor in the pro-abortion camp because of the Court’s stance today.
“We have been confident all along that we would have victory in this case. Forcing pregnancy centers — that exist to prevent abortions – to advertise for abortion is like requiring Alcoholics Anonymous meetings to advertise for the liquor store down the street. It’s an insidious effort to make sure choice is eliminated and abortion is the only option. The Supreme Court acted in the best interest of all Americans today.”
