    Demanding Truth and Accountability from the Abortion Industry in Court

    Anti-abortion demonstrators take part in the "March for Life" in Washington

    This past Friday - Good Friday - I was in court in Baltimore, Maryland arguing against that state's attempt to shield from public scrutiny the identities of the owners, operators, and medical directors of Maryland's twenty or so abortion businesses. Our client, Andrew Glenn, made a straightforward public records request over a year ago seeking that information. Glenn was prompted by reports that doctors whose licenses had been suspended or revoked in other states had been setting up practices in... Continue Reading

    Easter: A Time to Pray for the Persecuted, a Time to Defend Life

    A cross is seen on the hill as the sun rises on Easter morning in Chimayo

    Like many others, when I gather with my family on Easter, we will celebrate the risen Savior. At the same time, we are in the midst of the Passover season, the season of freedom for the Israelites. With Easter and Passover, we celebrate life, we celebrate freedom, and we celebrate our eternal hope. Yet as we celebrate, our brothers and sisters in Christ are suffering for their faith. In Egypt, Christians are facing the turmoil and oppression of upheaval, still reeling from the oppressive rule ... Continue Reading

    When Does Intolerance Work?

    Tea Party Patriots host a Flag Ceremony at the U.S. Capitol in Washington

    In the wake of the Mozilla controversy, the Duck Dynasty controversy, the Chick-fil-A boycott/buycott, and the countless examples of intolerance and intimidation against conservatives on campuses across the country, it seems rather clear that —as Michelle Goldberg notes in The Nation – there is a “growing left-wing tendency towards censoriousness and and hair-trigger offense.” But does this increasing intolerance work? In other words, does it help leftists impose their o... Continue Reading

    Huffington Post Author Soft-pedals Dangerous Illegal Abortions

    Abortions on demand without apology

    Laura Bassett, writing on March 5 for the Huffington Post about abortion businesses shutting down in Texas, www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/03/05/texas-abortion-clinics-shut_n_4907050.html, invites readers to send in individualized horror stories about the effect of the law. In particular, she requests stories about recourse to unsafe abortion methods (emphasis added): HuffPost Readers: Have you or a woman you know had to resort to unsafe measures to end your pregnancy because of lack of access t... Continue Reading

    Linda Greenhouse Shows Her Colors (Again)

    Abortion rights protestors arrive to prepare for a counter protest against March for Life anti-abortion demonstrators on the 39th anniversary of the Roe vs Wade decision, in front of the U.S. Supreme Court building in Washington

    Veteran pro-abortion reporter Linda Greenhouse shows her heavy slant once more, this time in an article entitled “Stories We Tell.” Her target: the pro-life side in the cases of McCullen v. Coakley (free speech rights for sidewalk counselors) and Little Sisters of the Poor v. Sebelius (conscience rights challenge to the HHS abortifacient/birth control/sterilization mandate pursuant to Obamacare). Some particularly foul tidbits: 1. Greenhouse refers to the McCullen case as involving... Continue Reading

    If You Don’t Want to Pay for Abortion Pills You’re a Secessionist?

    Pro-life protesters walk during their annual March for Life in Washington

    So says legal scholar Garrett Epps in The Atlantic. Alarmed by the Supreme Court’s recent stay in the Little Sisters of the Poor and Hobby Lobby cases, Mr. Epps actually writes this: Taken together, these two cases aren’t claims for religious exemption. They are more like an ordinance of secession—a statement that religious bodies, and people, and even commercial businesses, no longer belong to society if they decide they’d rather not. The idea depends on an assumption... Continue Reading

    Brief Filed in New York City Pro-Life Crisis Pregnancy Center Case

    Women pro-choice protesters gather in judges' gowns and hold gavels outside the Supreme Court in Washington.

    For the past few years, the ACLJ has represented two non-profit organizations that operate numerous pro-life crisis pregnancy centers in New York City in a lawsuit challenging a City law that imposes burdensome disclaimer and confidentiality requirements upon crisis pregnancy centers. Today we filed a petition for rehearing en banc in which we ask the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit to reconsider certain issues in the case with a large panel of judges. The law, enacted in ... Continue Reading

    New York Falling; Mississippi Rising

    People march in 37th annual March for Life marking the anniversary of the Supreme Court's 1973 Roe v. Wade abortion decision in Washington

    Virtue in one generation does not necessarily lead to virtue in the next, and while history is powerful, it does not dictate our destiny. Look no further than the tale of two states: New York and Mississippi. I just finished reading 12 Years a Slave (I’ll watch the movie next), the profoundly moving story of New York citizen Solomon Northup’s kidnapping and life as a slave before his miraculous rescue — a rescue where New York law played a key role. Simply put, but for New Yor... Continue Reading

    Yes, We’re “Dead Set” on Defending Life

    aclj

    Today, commemorates the 41st anniversary of the legalized slaughter of unborn human life. Hundreds of thousands of pro-life Americans descended on our nation’s Capitol today for the annual “March for Life” to mourn the loss of over 56 million lives and renew our collective resolve to defend life. The leader of the abortion industry came out swinging today. Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards, after praising Roe v. Wade’s perpetuation of abortion, snidely quipp... Continue Reading

    The Bigotry of Abortion Exposes Itself

    Martin Luther King, Jr. speaking

    The pro-abortion governor of New York had the unmitigated gall to say exactly what pro-abortion extremists have been attempting to do all across America. In an interview last Friday, Governor Cuomo stated that “conservatives who are right-to-life . . . have no place in the state of New York . . . .” It is this type of anti-pro-life bigotry that we are facing in American today – from the White House on down to city halls and town councils. Pro-abortion zealots are pushing for... Continue Reading
