Victories & Facing Challenges Ahead

By Matthew Clark1356722378000

Through the support of our members, we have had an incredible year of victories.  In our 2012 Victories series, you have seen just a glimpse of the work of the ACLJ.

Yet, despite these numerous victories, we still face many challenges in the year ahead.

We are tirelessly fighting to defend the lives of unborn children.  We are fighting to end taxpayer funding for the largest abortion provider in America, Planned Parenthood.  We are fighting to stop Planned Parenthood and other pro-abortion forces from using draconian legislation to shut down the lifesaving work of pro-life pregnancy centers.  We are continuing to pursue Planned Parenthood in two of the largest lawsuits against the abortion industry in the country.

This is also a critical time in defense of Israel and the Israeli people.  Iran is quickly pursuing nuclear weapons and the terrorist-led Palestinian Authority is once again attempting to use lawfare (warfare through the misuse of law) against Israel at the International Criminal Court (ICC).  The ACLJ is working on Capitol Hill, at the United Nations, in Israel, and at the ICC to ensure that America stands with Israel against these threats.

Angry atheists groups continue their assault on our religious heritage as a nation.  Our fight to defend historic war memorials that have come under attack continues, and we will battle to protect the Ground Zero Cross from being torn down.

We are also continually fighting to ensure that the rights of our students are protected in school, that their free speech and religious liberty remain intact.  We face no greater threat to our religious liberty in America today than Obama’s abortion-pill mandate which forces millions of Americans to chose between violating their faith and violating the government’s mandate.  No one should be forced to violate their faith, and the ACLJ is aggressively working in courts all across America to ensure that we put an end to this unconstitutional decree.

Our work internationally continues to defend persecuted Christians in Iran, Egypt, and elsewhere around the globe.  Pastor Youcef is just one of hundreds around the world imprisoned for their Christian faith, and the ACLJ is working aggressively with our global affiliates to defend religious freedom.

Today, we are facing another challenge.  In order to meet the many challenges ahead in 2013 and have an even stronger year defending life and liberty, we must meet our year-end Matching Challenge goal.  The battles we face, the nearly limitless resources of the Obama Administration, the billion-dollar budget of Planned Parenthood and more, take a tremendous toll on our resources.  In order to have the resources we need to continue the battle for life, faith, and freedom, the ACLJ needs your help. Midnight, December 31st, is your last opportunity to make a critical tax-deductible donation to the work of the ACLJ during our year-end Matching Challenge. Your gift will be matched dollar-for-dollar though the end of the year.

Please support our work, as we continue fighting for your freedoms.

Restoring Our Republic

By Jay Sekulow1432305120477

Red tape in America is rising. Exponentially. It’s suffocating our Constitution and our freedoms. This is confirmed in a report recently released by the Heritage Foundation . The report states that since President Obama took office six years ago, his Administration has issued 184 major rules...

State Department Uses IRS Playbook

By Matthew Clark1432157351344

Yesterday’s revelation that the State Department is processing (read: stonewalling) 50,000 emails from then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton but that none of those emails will be ready for public consumption until sometime in January 2016 is unsurprising. Those emails cover everything from the...

A Rogue 4th Branch Of Government?

By Jay Sekulow1432046193785

Two years ago this month, we learned of the burgeoning scandal at the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) – the deliberate targeting of conservative and Tea Party groups – a coordinated move to keep these groups on the sidelines during a critical election. We are in federal court representing dozens of...

Bureaucracy Rises, Our Liberties Fall

By Edward White1431954000000

During the 1980s, there was a popular comedy show on the BBC called Yes Minister . The show involved a politician who was often thwarted by a member of the unelected civil service bureaucracy when he proposed legislation or reforms that were not beneficial to the bureaucracy. As in the fictional...
