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.
The Left is trying to protect its vice grip on abortion laws. Under the Biden Administration, the Department of Justice (DOJ) is trying to go after the new Texas law that bans abortion after the six-week point of pregnancy or when a heartbeat has been detected, known as the Texas Heartbeat Act .
The Hyde Amendment – which has protected U.S. tax dollars from directly funding abortion – is on the brink of ending after more than 40 years of being federal law. Soon, the U.S. House and Senate will consider a $3.5 trillion dollar spending bill, which could potentially remove the Hyde Amendment.
The American people, while deeply divided on the underlying issue of abortion, do not want to pay for abortions with their tax dollars. This has long been true, and it represents one of the few unifying issues for Republican, Democrat, and Independent voters. Even so, it seems the political...
Right on the heels of the Biden Administration dismissing its lawsuit against the University of Vermont Medical Center for violation of federal conscience laws—a move denounced by the ACLJ and roundly criticized by Senator James Lankford and others—it has now turned its sights to stripping...
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.
