-Supreme Court: California Can’t Make Pro-Life Pregnancy Centers Promote Abortion

by Dr. D ~ June 28th, 2018


The U.S.Supreme Court has made a number of rulings this season that supported the First Amendment. In this case free speech was the First Amendment issue cited as being violated by the State of California. From Christianity Today:

The Supreme Court ruled 5-4 to block a California law requiring pregnancy centers post referrals to state-funded abortion providers and birth control resources, forcing them to promote services that violate their beliefs.  …

Justice Clarence Thomas wrote in the opinion of the court,

     “It imposes a government-scripted, speaker-based disclosure requirement that is wholly disconnected from the State’s informational interest.” …

Thomas’s ruling, with John Roberts, Anthony Kennedy, Samuel Alito, and Neil Gorsuch concurring, has reversed the Ninth Circuit court decision that upheld the state act and sends the case back for further proceedings.

Response: California had passed the law in 2015 requiring Pro-Life pregnancy centers to list referrals to abortion providers. Here’s our take on this law at the time:

-California: New Law Forces Pro-Life Centers to List Referrals for Abortions

A lot of folks noted at the time that the law was an obvious violation of free speech but the radical supporters of abortion in California, including the Governor, did not care and apparently 4 Supreme Court justices do not care about free speech and the First Amendment either.

The slim 5-4 ruling tells us that it will be very important for our First Amendment rights that President Trump appoints the right person to replace the retiring Justice Kennedy.               *Top
