Pro-abortion ObamaCare was passed through unrivaled fanfare and massive deception. Reflecting sharply rising insurance premiums and coercive mandates, it has become a colossal failure. Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion provider, has vociferously supported ObamaCare despites its failures, as part of its stubborn commitment to abortion and misleading rhetoric. In fact, Planned Parenthood was in the room for the finalization of ObamaCare. Yet, last November the American people... read more

This week, the United Nations (U.N.) continued its shameful attacks on Israel. Next week, I am leading a team of senior ACLJ attorneys straight to the U.N. to fight back. The U.N.’s latest assault happened last week, when the United Nations Human Rights Council (U.N. HRC) met to discuss “ Agenda Item 7 ,” which is nothing more than a thinly veiled attempt to delegitimize Israel. Agenda Item 7, which criticizes Israel for alleged human rights violations, is a recurring agenda item at the U.N. read more

In a major step forward in our aggressive legal advocacy campaign for Christians facing genocide, Austria has formally recognized the genocide against Christians and is advancing at least three steps of our 7-point plan to stop the genocide against Christians and protect the victims. On June 7, 2017, the Austrian National Council passed a resolution formally recognizing that the heinous atrocities being committed by ISIS in Iraq and Syria constitute “genocide” against Christians and other... read more

Persecution of Christians is increasing world-wide. Today, our affiliate – the European Centre for Law & Justice (ECLJ) – gave an oral intervention before the United Nations’ Human Rights Council on behalf of persecuted Christians in Pakistan: Today the ECLJ would like to draw this Council’s attention to The Islamic Republic of Pakistan, a Muslim majority country, which is one of the worst violators of human rights. Mob violence, false accusations of blasphemy, forced conversions to Islam, read more

Today, through our affiliate, the European Centre for Law and Justice (ECLJ), we made an oral intervention before the United Nations Human Rights Council on behalf of Christians facing genocide in the Middle East. We gave our most detailed account yet of the atrocities carried out by ISIS against Christians and other religious and ethnic minorities. We stated: Thank you Mr. President, In February of 2017, the ECLJ submitted its second written and oral testimony to this Council requesting that... read more

It’s an issue that shouldn’t be partisan. It shouldn’t matter who the President is. All Americans should praise the indictment of someone who leaks top-secret classified information and breaks the law while also making statements siding with Iran over the United States, saying she wanted to “burn the White House down.” Reality Leigh Winner, 25, a Federal Government contractor with top secret security clearance was charged with leaking classified U.S. intelligence documents after she allegedly... read more

Fired FBI Director James Comey’s testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee accomplished one thing: With his testimony, Comey’s case against President Trump collapsed like a house of cards. Not only did Comey’s testimony clear President Trump – admitting under oath that the President was not under any investigation – his testimony unmasked Comey’s real motivation in all of this. It was a stunning revelation. Comey – the nation’s top intelligence official – admitted under oath that he... read more

We obtained a crucial victory yesterday in our Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) litigation against the Department of State, in which we are seeking records concerning the then-Obama State Department’s grant of funds to several organizations that campaigned to unseat Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in the 2015 Israeli elections. The district court in Washington, D.C., ordered that we be permitted to file an amendment to our initial complaint detailing not just the State Department’s... read more

The federal government’s primary job is to keep us safe. The President’s revised national security Executive Order is designed to do just that. The Order temporarily pauses entry into the United States of refugees and nationals from six unstable and/or terrorism-infested countries to allow time for needed improvements to the immigration and refugee screening processes from those countries (Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, and Yemen). Despite the Order’s clear purpose to protect our national... read more

Pastor Hassan Abduraheem, wrongly convicted on false charges and sentenced to 12 years in prison in Sudan, received a presidential pardon and has been freed from prison. On May 11, this Christian pastor imprisoned for his Christian faith was released from jail. This is a significant victory for our months-long global campaign to free this persecuted pastor. As we previously reported: In November 2015, Rev. Hassan Abduraheem and Rev. Kuwa Shamal attended a Christian conference in Addis Ababa, read more
