The state of New York just passed one of the most barbaric abortion laws in U.S. history, essentially making it legal to abort a baby at any stage of pregnancy, up to the moment of birth. It even removes legal protections for babies born alive from botched abortions.
Now other states are trying to do the same thing.
We’ve assembled our legal team to fight back:
We are preparing to send records demands under state sunshine and Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) laws to expose exactly how involved Planned Parenthood and the abortion industry were in pushing this new law forward.
We’re looking for every possible way to challenge the law under New York statutes.
We’re mobilizing to ensure that these new laws cannot be used to target pro-life doctors and nurses and force them to perform abortions.
Finally, we’re examining other legal angles as other states look to pass similar laws.
Stand with us to protect these precious babies before it’s too late.

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.
