Light is beginning to shine into the darkness. We’ve written about the rampant and shocking sexual abuse of children happening in Afghanistan (an evil one of our nation’s finest now faces expulsion from the military for confronting). And now, your voices have been heard by a bipartisan, bicameral group of 93 Members of Congress who have demanded an investigation into reports that the U.S. Military told our troops to ignore Afghan soldier’s sexual enslavement of young children. In its quarterly... read more

This week, ACLJ Chief Counsel Jay Sekulow provided an in-depth analysis of United States v. Texas at SCOTUSblog , which is one of the top legal sites, bringing legal scholars and practitioners across the country together to address the Supreme Court and the most important cases of our time. Focusing on the issue of President Obama’s Executive lawlessness, he wrote: Impatient presidents don’t get to rewrite the law when they don’t get their way. This is foundational to our country’s entire... read more

Recently, we took direct action and secured a significant victory for a girl whose school refused to allow her to display a cross on a student banner. For decades, the ACLJ has defended public school students when outside groups and administrators misinterpret the Constitution to restrict students’ fundamental freedoms. A student’s mother recently contacted us when her daughter’s school refused to display a student-sponsored banner with a cross symbol on it. During sporting events at a high... read more

NARAL and Planned Parenthood promote a culture of death. There is only one problem. In order to keep their racket going, the public must not believe that an unborn baby is human. This deception is critical to their success. They seemed to be rather successful in the past, referring to the baby as a clump of cells or a fetus, hoping to divert people from the truth. But when ultrasounds came into the picture, the deception became a little harder to keep up. It’s no wonder that NARAL and Planned... read more

Last night’s Doritos Super Bowl commercial has the abortion industry absolutely losing its mind. Why? The commercial shows a baby in an ultrasound. Take a look: NARAL – the abortion industry’s top lobbyists – immediately took to Twitter in outrage, fuming, “#NotBuyingIt - that @Doritos ad using #antichoice tactic of humanizing fetuses . . . .” That “anti-choice tactic of humanizing fetuses” is called an ultrasound, which shows a baby human inside the womb. #NotBuyingIt - that @Doritos ad using... read more

Pro-abortion forces continue to bombard us with rhetoric that is profoundly dehumanizing to women, babies, and their opponents. This week alone, Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards has gone on the record calling babies a “ devastating consequence ” and suggesting that pro-life members of Congress oppose abortion so that they can keep “ women in their place .” Ms. Richards’ comments are as crude as they are fundamentally false. Contrary to their well-marketed talking points, read more

Today, the ACLJ and a number of allied organizations sent a detailed legal letter to Secretary of State John Kerry detailing the ISIS genocide against Christians and other religious minorities in the Middle East. The letter begins by discussing how the United States Commission on International Religious Freedom, the Holy See’s representative at the U.N. in Geneva, Pope Francis, various U.N. reports, the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe, and the European Parliament have all... read more

ACLJ to the U.S. Government: Call it Genocide!

Yesterday, the European Parliament recognized the genocide, war crimes, and crimes against humanity committed by ISIS – the Islamic State – against Christians and other religious minorities throughout the Middle East and Africa. The resolution “on the systematic mass murder of religious minorities by the so-called ‘ISIS/Daesh” passed unanimously, and called on the EU Member States to bring “ protection and aid, including military protection and aid ” to all targeted groups in conformity with... read more

We’re gaining momentum in our work on behalf of Bronze Star Medal recipient, Green Beret Sergeant First Class (SFC) Charles Martland, who is set for expulsion from the United States Army for protecting a young child from extreme sexual abuse at the hands of an Afghan commander. We’ve reported on the injustice of SFC Martland’s situation several times, going back to this past fall when the news broke . At the ACLJ, we’ve engaged a multi-pronged legal strategy and our legal and government affairs... read more
