2nd Circuit rejects ‘Choose Life’ license plates

ADF Senior Legal Counsel Jeremy Tedesco – “Pro-adoption organizations should have the same speech rights as any other organization.

The state doesn’t have the authority to target The Children First Foundation specialty plates for censorship based on its life-affirming viewpoint. The state has wrongly gotten away with speech discrimination against our client for more than 10 years. We will review our legal options.” Read more >>

La. Marriage and Conscience Act protects freedom of Louisianans

ADF Senior Counsel Austin R. Nimocks – “Nobody should be punished by the government for believing that marriage is the union of one man and one woman. The Louisiana Marriage and Conscience Act forbids the government from revoking the tax-exempt status or professional license of any person or organization that affirms marriage as the union of one man and one woman. The government should not be empowered to force anyone to choose between embracing same-sex marriage and losing their livelihood or their ability to carry out their organization’s mission. The bill secures freedom by limiting government intrusions into the lives and minds of all Louisianans.” Read more >>
