Supreme Court decision striking down 'anti-prostitution pledge' for HIV and AIDS workers
The Supreme Court ruled that the United States Leadership Against HIV/AIDS, Tuberculosis, and Malaria Act of 2003 violated freedom of speech under the First Amendment. The act requires U.S. funded public health groups to pledge their opposition to prostitution in order to receive funding and continue their disease prevention work. Supreme Court says law can’t dictate anti-AIDS groups’ speech
