Senator Lankford Applauds Supreme Court Ruling on Free Speech

WASHINGTON, DC – Senator James Lankford (R-OK) released the following statement on the Supreme Court’s decision in National Institute of Family and Life Advocates (NIFLA) v. Becerra:

“Today’s ruling is a great victory for the First Amendment and free speech in America. It’s a shame that free speech is under attack more and more in our country, but I’m glad the Supreme Court is speaking truth to this value that makes America so unique and great. No organization should be forced by their government to endorse or communicate a message that violates their core mission and beliefs. In our nation, everyone has the right to speak their own mind or choose to be silent, but people do not have a responsibility to say what the government attempts to compel you to say.”
