Lifesite news reports that the Second Circuit Court of Appeals in New York City recently issued an opinion that puts an end to an attempt by pro-abortion New York lawmakers to force pregnancy care centers to hire and retain pro-abortion employees. Three years ago New York passed a law that basically said pregnancy care centers had to hire people who disagreed with their core mission: saving the unborn by encouraging their mothers to choose life. The court said that law violates the organization’s First Amendment right of expressive association.
A wonderful decision for pregnancy care centers for sure. Beyond that, this case should send a powerful message to every state to not implement laws that violate an organization’s First Amendment rights. No organization should be compelled to hire someone who is opposed to its core principles.
