Rust v. Sullivan (1991)

This case brought by a group of family planning providers challenged the Reagan administration's ban on abortion counseling and referral by programs funded by Title X of the federal Public Health Service Act. The court ruled that the restrictions did not violate freedom of speech under the First Amendment. However, President Bill Clinton repealed the regulation by executive order in 1993. (Photo: GREG GIBSON/AFP/Getty Images)
