COLUMBUS, Ohio--Today, the United States Supreme Court announced a 5-4 decision in favor of pro-life pregnancy resource centers in the case NIFLA v. Becerra. This case is based on the California "Reproductive FACT Act" that required pro-life pregnancy centers to advertise where women could receive low-cost abortions.
The following statement can be attributed to Mike Gonidakis, President of Ohio Right to Life:
The Supreme Court got it right today. Pro-life pregnancy centers deserve the same free speech rights as any other organization. The narrow 5-4 margins remind us that there is a minority of people in this country who would very much like to restrict the speech of people they disagree with. Today's decision is a huge win for free speech and the pro-life movement!
