For Immediate Release
Office of Public Affairs

Today Attorney General Jeff Sessions issued the following statement on the Supreme Court's ruling in NIFLA v. Becerra:

“We are pleased that today’s decision protects Americans’ freedom of speech.  Speakers should not be forced by their government to promote a message with which they disagree, and pro-life pregnancy centers in California should not be forced to advertise abortion and undermine the very reason they exist.  This Department will continue to vigorously defend the freedom of all Americans to speak peacefully in accord with their deeply held beliefs and conscience."
