On August 8, 2017, Nepal’s parliament passed a bill, criminalizing religious conversion and hurting religious sentiment, joining countries like India, Pakistan, Iran, and a host of other Muslim countries where such laws have been used to persecute religious minorities. While Nepal’s new Constitution of September 2015 establishes Nepal as a secular state and guarantees freedom of religion, it also limits that very freedom.

From Day One , the ACLJ has been aggressively calling for Congress and federal and state law enforcement to investigate Big Abortion for the horrific practice of selling aborted babies’ body parts (fetal tissue) for profit. It’s illegal, but until recently has gone on unhindered from the fear of prosecution. Bombshell revelations yesterday not only confirm the existence of this practice and substantiate our aggressive legal advocacy but also show that the abortion industry can be defeated. The... read more

This is the latest installment in a year-end series looking back at a few of the numerous victories by the ACLJ in 2017. Every year, opponents to religious freedom continue their assault on our First Freedom.

Stapleton , the Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF) and ACLU tried to strangle church healthcare plans with burdensome government... read more

This is the latest installment in a year-end series looking back at a few of the numerous victories by the ACLJ in 2017.

The Proclamation places travel restrictions on foreign nationals from Chad, Iran, Syria, Libya, Somalia, North Korea, Venezuela, and Yemen.

For years, the Palestinian Authority (PA) has used U.S. taxpayer dollars to subsidize their notorious “pay for slay” program used to entice and reward jihadists who murder innocent Americans and Israelis. When a Palestinian terrorist stabbed ten innocent civilians and murdered an American citizen, the PA paid his family as a martyr for the jihadist anti-Israel cause—and did so while being subsidized by the American taxpayers. We called for Congress to end this horrific program, and finally, read more

This is the latest installment in a year-end series looking back at a few of the numerous victories by the ACLJ in 2017. This year, through our legal office on the ground in Pakistan, the ACLJ secured significant victories for persecuted Christians in Pakistan – one of the worst violators of human rights in the world. Mob violence, false accusations of blasphemy, forced conversions to Islam, police torture, and other forms of persecution and discrimination are a commonplace in this... read more

Joining California in this case are the states of Delaware, Virginia, Maryland, and New... read more
