It’s a major development in the fight for unborn babies.
Finally – for the first time ever – the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has made it the official policy of the United States that life begins at conception.
The abortion industry is in trouble. For years, HHS has consistently expanded abortion and funneled taxpayer money to abortion.
That changes now. HHS has just released its strategic plan for the next four years, stating that it will pursue policies that “protect Americans at every stage of life, beginning at conception.”
As these policies are put in place, they could save countless lives.
Now we have a crucial opportunity. The ACLJ is filing an official public comment in support of HHS’s strategic plan implementing the policy that life begins at conception.
We need you to be a part of this critical public comment. Add your name now.
America is pro-life. Our government must implement policies that defend the rights of unborn babies. Life begins at conception.
Today marks a dark anniversary for our country that has resulted in the loss of American lives on an unfathomable scale. Not an act of war or a terrorist attack. Not a disease. This deadly scourge was and remains completely preventable. On January 22, 1973, the Supreme Court delivered its now...
Planned Parenthood may be gearing up to make another play for federal relief funds intended for actual small businesses and not a billion-dollar abortion behemoth. This cannot be tolerated. A group of 31 pro-life Senators, led by Sen. Tom Cotton (AR), has taken action to block Planned Parenthood...
Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor has been a reliable pro-abortion vote on the Supreme Court. That didn’t change when she dissented from a recent pro-life victory in abortion-pill litigation. Yet ironically, in her dissent (joined by Justice Elena Kagan), Justice Sotomayor embraced several...
According to a new report , abortion is now the world’s leading cause of death, accounting for nearly 42% of all deaths worldwide. Let that sink in for a moment. That’s almost HALF. More than cancer. More than heart disease. More than any criminal violence. In 2020, our entire country, and indeed...
ACLJ petitions aren’t merely names on a page but powerful tools used with governments, the media, and courts to focus attention on injustice and create real-world change. Here's how:
First, we can directly and immediately alert individual Members of Congress and other government officials of the size and scope of the public support for our initiatives. Unlike, say, White House petitions – which at best generate a response from low-level staffers – our most successful petitions have generated direct White House, State Department, and congressional responses at the highest level.
Second, we alert members of the media and can help drive national news stories as petition signatures grow.
Third, petitions not only influence foreign governments, they can provide aid and comfort to persecuted people abroad.
Finally, you can directly participate in the most critical court battles of our time. Your signature - your voice - can be represented in briefs to the Supreme Court and to federal courts across America.
