NARAL's Spring interns will give a brief presentation to provide some context for the case, the Vice President of Madison NOW will speak about her organization's experiences with fake women's health centers (commonly referred to as crisis pregnancy centers) in our own state, and Attorney Mel Barnes with Planned Parenthood of Wisconsin will provide a breakdown of the oral arguments and potential legal outcomes of the case. Lights snacks and beverages will be provided!
This case was brought by the National Institute of Family and Life Advocates (NIFLA), an anti-choice nonprofit, and two of its member “pregnancy centers,” challenging California’s Reproductive Freedom, Accountability, Comprehensive Care, and Transparency (FACT) Act. NIFLA says its vision is “achieving an abortion-free America.” NIFLA also notes that it pursues legal action at the state and national levels to support its fake women’s health centers.
The FACT Act is a straightforward law that helps provide important, accurate, and honest information to pregnant women; makes sure anyone who claims they provide medical advice and/or medical care is held to a high standard of honesty and professionalism; and makes sure women receive accurate information about their full range of options and programs related to pregnancy and family planning.
