Fake Clinics: Let's Put an End to It

 
 

The NIFLA v. Beccera Decision: What it Means

  • NIFLA v. Beccera was a Supreme Court case decided in June 2018 about the legality of the California Reproductive Freedom, Accountability, Comprehensive Care, and Transparency (FACT) Act. The FACT Act was a law that required crisis pregnancy centers to disclose if they are unlicensed clinics and to tell patients about California’s coverage of birth control and abortion services at low or no cost.
  • The Supreme Court, in a 5-4 decision, decided in favor of the plaintiff (National Institute of Family Life Advocates) and struck down the California FACT Act.
  • The Court ruled that the FACT Act was a violation of the clinics’ First Amendment right to free speech. You can read the full decision here.
  • This decision is expected to affect other state and city laws that are similar to the California FACT Act. Laws designed to protect pregnant women from deception are now in jeopardy. New York City’s disclosure law, Local Law 17 of 2011, is likely to face new court challenges attempting to have it declared unconstitutional.
