Notice of Press Conference at SCOTUS

Mar 19, 2018

WASHINGTON, D.C. –  Mat Staver, Founder and Chairman of Liberty Counsel, will be available to speak to the media in front of the U.S. Supreme Court on Tuesday, March 20, 2018 at approximately 11:00 a.m. ET. This press conference follows the oral argument for National Institute of Family and Life Advocates (NIFLA) v. Becerra, one of four cases brought by crisis pregnancy centers challenging a California law as a violation of the First Amendment. 

Liberty Counsel represents Mountain Right to Life v. Becerra, one of the four cases pending before the Court. 

The Supreme Court will review the California Reproductive FACT Act, which compels pro-life crisis pregnancy centers to post notices in their physical clinics, printed material, and online regarding the availability of free and low-cost abortions. The Court agreed to review the NIFLA case on the question of whether the disclosures required by the California Reproductive FACT Act violate the Free Speech Clause of the First Amendment. 

Liberty Counsel challenged the law in federal court. A federal district court judge and a three-judge panel of the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals denied Liberty Counsel's request for a preliminary injunction, and Liberty Counsel filed a petition to the Supreme Court. The case is being held and the decision in NIFLA will apply to all the pending cases.

Liberty Counsel is an international nonprofit, litigation, education, and policy organization dedicated to advancing religious freedom, the sanctity of life, and the family since 1989, by providing pro bono assistance and representation on these and related topics.
