    NIFLA v. Becerra

    This it the case I helped write an amicus brief for. The Supreme Court released the opinion today, reversing the lower court's holding which upheld the stringent conditions of the FACT Act as applicable to pro-life pregnancy centers and remanding to the lower court for proceedings consistent with their ruling.

    Supreme Court Sides With Free Speech Over Abortion Rights in NIFLA V. Becerra


    The Supreme Court sided with anti-abortion crisis pregnancy centers on Tuesday morning, in a decision written by Justice Clarence Thomas. The case pitted free speech and reproductive rights against one another in the state of California.

    National Institute of Family and Life Advocates v. Xavier Becerra challenged a 2015 law that required crisis pregnancy centers to disclose all available medical options and services to pregnant women. The centers, which are nonprofit organizations often affiliated with Christian groups, immediately responded that the law violated their religious freedom and their first amendment right to free speech.

    Thomas, writing for a conservative 5-4 majority, found that requirements for licensed crisis pregnancy centers "likely" violate free speech claims, and that the requirement for unlicensed centers "unduly burdens protected speech."

    The court also noted that the law in question was too narrowly limited in scope and only attempted to impose this speech on crisis pregnancy centers opposed to abortion rather than any health center that offers services like birth control or family planning.
