STATEMENT: Lt. Governor Newsom on the CA FACT Act Ruling

06-26-18

(SACRAMENTO) - Lt. Governor Gavin Newsom issued the following statement in NIFLA v. Becerra, after the U.S. Supreme Court ruled largely against California's FACT Act, which required clinics to provide accurate information to women regarding their reproductive health and options:

"Self-described 'crisis pregnancy centers' should be in the business of giving women and their families full and accurate medical information, not advancing an ideological agenda. Women have a right to accurate information about their health care, and it's not a coincidence that every woman on the Supreme Court dissented in this decision."
