+  Pro-Life Win with National Implications

  • Description: "Today (Jan. 5), pro-life pregnancy care centers' free speech rights were upheld in a case with national implications. A three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit unanimously affirmed that a Baltimore City ordinance requiring pro-life pregnancy care centers to post signs about abortion in their waiting rooms, violated their First Amendment free speech rights. This ruling is a major stride forward for the pro-life movement with a similar case (NIFLA v. Becerra) being argued in the United States Supreme Court this year."
