The rain didn’t stop pro-lifers from rallying in front of the Supreme Court this morning to show their support for pregnancy help centers and fight back against the abortion lobby’s attacks on free speech.
The National Institute of Family and Life Advocates (NIFLA) represents more than 1,400 pro-life pregnancy centers nationwide.

John, this is deeply wrong. It undermines the centers’ pro-life mission and threatens their very existence. It goes against everything we stand for as a nation. We wouldn’t force Alcoholics Anonymous to tell their members where to get liquor, or the American Lung Association to promote cigarettes – but California is forcing pregnancy centers to turn their walls into billboards for the abortion industry.
Today was a huge day for the Pro-Life Movement as oral arguments in this incredibly important case, NIFLA v. Becerra, began. SBA List and our research arm, the Charlotte Lozier Institute, sent staff to speak at the rally:

It could be several weeks before the Supreme Court issues a ruling. In the meantime, here are a few helpful actions you can take:
Thank you for standing with us!
