News Release

City officials can’t run ads from non-profit groups, such as the United Way, and then single out Women’s Health Link’s nearly identical ad for censorship.

The following quote may be attributed to Alliance Defending Freedom Senior Counsel Kevin Theriot regarding an appeal that ADF attorneys filed Tuesday in Women’s Health Link v. Fort Wayne Public Transportation Corp. after a district court upheld the decision of Fort Wayne’s bus system to refuse to display the life-affirming referral service’s ad in its buses:

“City officials can’t run ads from non-profit groups, such as the United Way, and then single out Women’s Health Link’s nearly identical ad for censorship. The First Amendment protects freedom of speech for all people, regardless of their political or religious views. Because government has a responsibility to ensure equal access to community advertising, we have filed this appeal and hope the 7th Circuit will reverse the district court’s decision.”

Alliance Defending Freedom is an alliance-building, non-profit legal organization that advocates for the right of people to freely live out their faith.
