Tuesday on FOT: Roadblocks pro-life pregnancy centers face

Tom Glessner
On Faith On Trial this week we are going to discuss some of the legal and societal roadblocks that are placed in front of pro-life pregnancy centers.

Our guest will be Thomas A. Glessner, the founder and president of the National Institute of Family andLife Advocates (NIFLA), a public interest law firm founded in 1993 which is committed to legal counsel and training for pregnancy resource centers. NIFLA represents more than 1,300 pregnancy resource centers across the nation including InnerVisions HealthCare in West Des Moines. 

As the CEO of NIFLA, Tom has developed and implemented legal guidelines for pregnancy resource centers to enable them to convert their operations into licensed medical clinics and provide for abortion-minded clients’ medical services such as ultrasound. NIFLA provides life-affirming pregnancy resource centers with legal counsel, education, and training to enable them to avoid legal pitfalls in their operations. 

Tom is listed in Who’s Who in American Law and is a member of the bar associations for the United States Supreme Court, the State of Virginia and the State of Washington. As such, he has filed several “friend of the court” briefs in cases of major significance to the prolife movement in the United States Supreme Court. 

Join Deacon Mike Manno and Gina Noll Tuesday morning at 9 (CDT) or for the re-broadcast at 9 p.m. on Iowa Catholic Radio 1150 AM; 88.5 & 94.5 FM and streaming on-line at
