In a startling revelation, news is breaking this week that Obama holdovers within the State Department are actively attempting to scrub its records to remove any mention of the ISIS genocide against Christians. This is outrageous and the ACLJ has had enough, so we are preparing a new set of Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests to find out why – and to expose deep state operatives who would use the delay of confirming new State Department officials as cover to strip legal protections from... read more

While Syria and Iraq remain the main areas in which ISIS fighters are focusing their genocidal attacks against Christians and other religious minorities, these attacks are spreading. Yesterday, in our ongoing effort to combat ISIS, we sent letters to 12 key world leaders who understand first-hand the danger of ISIS’s spreading jihadist genocide and terrorism . Our letters are addressed to the leaders of Austria, France, Germany, Belgium, Sweden, England, Spain, the Philippines, Egypt, Jordan, read more

The Senate has just agreed to debate the repeal of ObamaCare. This is a massive first step toward undoing more than 7 years of taxes, mandates, and pro-abortion legislation that has crippled our healthcare system. The motion to proceed to debate passed with the tie-breaking vote of Vice President Pence. All Democrats and Republican Senators Collins and Murkowski (Sen. Murkowski previously voted for the 2015 repeal bill) voted against the motion to proceed to debate. Here’s what the vote means: read more

Leadership. Excellence. Outstanding contributions to reproductive health. These are the characteristics often ascribed to Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood. But the real Margaret Sanger would shock and disgust all but the most radical abortion zealots. Every year the biggest abortion provider celebrates Sanger, whom it proudly believes mirrors her qualities, by giving an award it calls the Margaret Sanger Award to its latest champion in the war on human life. Among those who... read more

In an opinion that is perhaps best described as both remarkable and confounding, the United States Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit recently held that “the Free Speech Clause has no application in the context of speech expressed in a competitive interview.” In other words, at least in the Fourth Circuit, any applicant for any governmental position can be retaliated against based solely on an opinion uttered in an interview that the interviewer doesn’t like. Because this holding is... read more

We are pleased to report that the Northern District of Illinois issued a strong decision in favor of the fight for life in the case National Institute of Family and Life Advocates et al., v. Governor Bruce Rauner, et al . Last month , we filed an amicus brief in the Northern District of Illinois, asking for the Court to issue a preliminary injunction to halt the implementation of an amendment to an the Illinois Health Care Right of Conscience Act (“HCRCA”) that would require Crisis Pregnancy... read more

For years now, the abortion industry has been working hard to suppress the right of prolife crisis pregnancy centers (CPCs) to address life issues with their clients in the way they deem appropriate and consistent with the centers' religious principles. The pro-abortion forces have succeeded in persuading lawmakers in places like New York, Maryland, Texas, and California to pass draconian measures that either punish the CPCs for speaking their own messages or dictate to CPCs the government's... read more

In a further development in the ongoing litigation over President Trump’s National Security Executive Order, the United States Supreme Court today halted a Hawaii federal judge’s order allowing refugees to enter this country who lack a close relationship with an America entity. Previously, on June 26th, the Supreme Court modified the injunctions imposed by federal trial judges in Hawaii and Maryland against the Executive Order. The Supreme Court’s modification explained that refugees and... read more

Against the backdrop of exploding insurance premiums and vanishing options for healthcare, it is time for the U.S. Senate to deliver on the promises its members have been making to voters for more than seven years. For multiple election cycles in a row, a majority of the U.S. Senate has campaigned on a promise to provide relief from the onerous mandates, taxes, and regulations of pro-abortion ObamaCare. Nearly every member of that majority has voted numerous times to provide such relief—but did... read more

It has long been established that IRS officials under the Obama Administration “orchestrated a complex scheme to dump conservative and Tea Party non-profit applicants into a bureaucratic ‘black hole.’” Hundreds of documents have been uncovered in recent years that clearly establish that “top IRS officials in Washington, including Lois Lerner and Holly Paz, knew that the agency was specifically targeting ‘Tea Party’ and other conservative organizations.” The ACLJ is pleased to announce that... read more
