Supreme Court Blocks California Law Regulating Deceptive Anti-Abortion Pregnancy Centers

On Tuesday, pro-choice groups called the decision damaging. They have argued that signage providing “neutral” information is necessary to safeguard against “deceptive tactics” used by some crisis pregnancy centers to mask their religious or anti-abortion orientation. “The Supreme Court eliminated a critical law that protected women from anti-abortion counseling centers’ deception,” said Fatima Goss Graves, President and CEO of the National Women’s Law Center in an emailed statement. “It is devastating that today’s decision will make access to full reproductive health care more difficult.”
