The Supreme Court Deals a Blow to the Abortion Industry

By Paul Kengor ● Crisis Magazine ● 06/29/2018

The U.S. Supreme Court this week, in yet another narrow decision, this one titled, National Institute of Family and Life Advocates v. Becerra, has struck down a 2015 California law that would have forced pro-life crisis pregnancy centers to advertise abortions, that is, centers established for the very purpose of not doing abortions and providing an alternative to abortion. This patently unjust law would have compelled the centers—many of them religious, with conscientious objections to abortion—to advertise state-subsidized abortion clinics in their waiting rooms and in their handouts to patients.
