"No state can rob women of the right to choose a pro-life doctor by forcing pro-life physicians and entities to make or arrange abortion referrals. That's what federal law clearly states," said ADF Senior Counsel Matt Bowman in a press release at the time.
"Those who doubt that anyone would ever try to force someone to commit an abortion need only look at this case," Mr. Bowman said. "This is precisely what the ACLU sought to do. The court came to the right conclusion in putting an end to their quest."
