SCOTUS to Weigh California Abortion Challenge Case

The U.S. Supreme Court agreed to hear NIFLA v. Becerra, a First Amendment challenge to California’s Reproductive Freedom, Accountability, Comprehensive Care, and Transparency Act (FACT), that forces pro-life pregnancy resource centers to instruct women on how to access abortion via the state’s Medi-Cal program. Centers are subject to $500 fines for the first offense and $1,000 for subsequent offenses.

According to Thomas Glessnor, founder and president of NIFLA, the issue is “Can the government impose and compel a faith-based ministry to proclaim a message that they are fundamentally opposed to with the risk of being fined or shut down?”

A hearing on the case has not yet be set.

SCOTUS Nominee Gorsuch Headed for Confirmation Vote

During the hearings, we learned that Gorsuch does not believe in the “living Constitution” approach to interpreting the Constitution, believes that taking a human life through assisted suicide is always wrong, and supports religious liberty. Democrats have threatened to filibuster the vote.
