HONOLULU — The United States Supreme Court on Tuesday ruled 5 to 4 against a law in California that required faith-based or crisis pregnancy centers to inform patients that the state offers contraception service and abortion assistance.
This significant case mirrors others across the nation, including Calvary Chapel of Pearl Harbor v. Chin, filed in July 2017 in the United States District Court of Hawaii.
“All women deserve to be informed and are entitled to make personal reproductive health decisions with complete and accurate information regarding their rights to access the full range of health care services available to them,” said Lt. Gov. Doug Chin. “Today’s decision erodes those rights. I will continue to fight for women and their right to be fully informed of their choices.”
