The United States Supreme Court heard arguments Tuesday in a challenge to a California law requiring anti-abortion “crisis pregnancy centers” to post signs or notify patients in writing if the center is not a licensed medical facility. If they're not licensed by the state, they need to notify patients of free pregnancy-related services provided by the state including prenatal care and abortion. Supporters of the law, known as the FACT Act, say they want to ensure that these faith-based centers do not mislead women. But anti-abortion activists say the law violates their First Amendment rights.
