The Supreme Court has taken a case this term related to abortion, but it’s with a slightly different twist than we’ve seen before. It’s a case out of California - National Institute of Family and Life Advocates v. Becerra.

At issue is the Reproductive FACT Act passed by California in 2015. It requires faith-based crisis pregnancy centers to post official notices about state family planning and pregnancy-related services.

Opponents of the act say it violates freedom of speech.

The justices heard the case in October.

Paul Bender is a law professor at Arizona State University's Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law. He’s also a former U.S. Deputy Solicitor General.
