ADF to continue fight for freedom of NYC pregnancy care centers


Monday, November 03, 2014

The following quote may be attributed to Alliance Defending Freedom Senior Legal Counsel Matt Bowman regarding the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision Monday to deny review in Pregnancy Care Center of New York v. City of New York and let stand a preliminary appeals court decision that upheld one portion of New York City’s anti-pregnancy care law:

“Pro-life pregnancy care centers, which offer free help and hope to women and their children, shouldn’t be punished by political allies of abortionists. Most of the government’s mandatory pro-abortion messages were struck down on appeal, but part of the law still forces pro-life centers to speak a message designed to scare women away. That ruling was only preliminary, so we will continue our efforts in this case to make sure free speech is fully protected for centers that offer free and caring help to women.”

Alliance Defending Freedom is an alliance-building, non-profit legal organization that advocates for the right of people to freely live out their faith.
