SCOTUS slaps down California anti-free-speech mandate affecting pro-life pregnancy centers

June 28 @ 7:00 pm - 7:55 pm

SCOTUS slaps down law that only required crisis pregnancy centers (NOT PP’s) to instruct clients where they could get abortions.

Angela Bennett, President and CEO of a SoCal crisis pregnancy center, says the centers are now licensed medical clinics with a narrow scope to provide women with scientific, medical facts about their pregnancy and the options after that.

If we, culturally, had a different perspective on the value of life, more women might come to the choice to preserve life and choose adoption.

There are 2 different types of pro-life pregnancy centers. One is a non-medical resource. The other provides medical services relating to pregnancy.

California AB775 mandated what pregnancy centers HAD to tell clients. Lawsuit challenged the mandated speech as a violation of their 1st Amendment rights.

The bill mandated posters in the entry in 48pt font with the phone number referring clients to a free abortion. So the State of California required a pro-life business to advertise free abortions for the government and Planned Parenthood.
