Tomorrow morning, the Supreme Court of the United States will hear oral argument in National Institute of Family and Life Advocates v. Becerra which is considering the constitutionality of California’s 2015 Reproductive Freedom, Accountability, Comprehensive Care, and Transparency (FACT) Act.
The FACT Act was passed to address the harmful practices of “crisis pregnancy centers” which are anti-choice organizations that predominately operate in low-income, rural and majority-minority areas and give false, misleading or no information about the full range of reproductive health care options legally available to women, including abortion. The FACT Act ensures that women receive the most accurate and complete information about their family planning options, including prenatal care, birth control, and abortion. In addition, the FACT Act seeks to ensure that women are made aware that free or low-cost health care is available from their county’s social services department.
CWLC stands with women across the country and those attending the rally in Washington, D.C. tomorrow at the Supreme Court. Women deserve accurate, unbiased, and comprehensive health care information. Join CWLC in our work to stop fake health clinics.
