There has not been a case that is as on track to reverse Roe v. Wade quite like this one. Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization came after a challenge against the Mississippi law that banned abortion after 15 weeks. The State of Mississippi asked the Supreme Court to overturn Roe v. Wade and allow for individual states to ban abortion after the judicially created viability point that has been cited in the past. One of the prominent reasons Roe v. Wade has been able to remain law for... read more

The American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ) just filed an amicus brief in Zimmerman v. City Austin , urging the Texas Supreme Court to hear a case involving the use of taxpayer money to support abortion related services. Texas is at the forefront of the effort to defund Planned Parenthood. In 2019, the state passed a statute barring taxpayer subsidization of all entities that perform abortions. But the City of Austin circumvented that law by allocating taxpayer funds to organizations that... read more

Mississippi’s Attorney General Lynn Fitch has just filed a brief asking the Supreme Court to overturn Roe v. Wade and allow for individual states to determine the options for life and abortion. The case, Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization , is related to a Mississippi law that was enacted to ban abortions after 15-weeks. Of course, lower courts struck down the law citing Supreme Court precedents. So, Mississippi asked the Supreme Court to intervene and hear the case. The ACLJ joined... read more

Most of us have the luxury of feeling that our children and grandchildren are safe going to school each day. But parents in Nigeria – particularly Christian families – find themselves locked in a constant state of terror as school children are being murdered or kidnapped by Islamic radicals. In fact, the day after we Americans celebrated our Independence, armed terrorists stripped away the freedom of 140 Nigerian students from a Christian school. As reported by CBS NEWS : Gunmen have kidnapped... read more

The Biden Administration announced that the United States is going to sanction a number of Cuban officials following attacks on Cuban protestors by their own government. This announcement by President Biden comes two weeks after these protests and demonstrations initially started. Is this too little too late? ACLJ Senior Military Analyst Wes Smith described in his new article what he calls the Cuban people’s cry for freedom. Col. Smith explained the significance of this moment: This is a rare... read more

It seems there is in the very DNA of humans a natural and passionate desire for freedom. It does not matter as to one’s nationality, ethnicity, or language. The desire to be free and to escape injustice and oppression is a universal human longing. For those of us who grew up in the United States, it is a sentiment that we do not always understand—at least we do not understand the passion attached to such longings and the lengths to which people will go to be free. It is why some of the most... read more

The U.S. Supreme Court has agreed to hear a vital case involving the state of Maine’s school choice program and their blatant religious discrimination. In Maine, the state extends tuition assistance to parents to send their kids to the high school of their choice. However, there is one caveat with this voucher program – it cannot be a Christian or a religious school. In some areas of Maine there are no public schools, so this is a really problematic issue of discrimination. Parents of the... read more

State Department leaders recently invited U.N. “experts,” the U.N. Special Rapporteur on “contemporary forms of racism” and the U.N. Special Rapporteur on “minority issues,” to conduct an official visit to the United States in order to investigate “the scourge of racism, racial discrimination, and xenophobia” in our country. This invitation demeans America and offers legitimacy to a corrupt, disingenuous international regime. It should be decried by the American people as not only an... read more

The Biden Administration continues to show no response when it comes to showing support for our neighbors fighting for freedom. Back in 2009 during the Green Revolution in Iran, Iranians took to the street to protest the murderous regime in Tehran. The Obama-Biden Administration did nothing at the time to show their support for the Iranian people who were crying out for freedom and liberty. Fast forward to 2021, Cubans are taking to the street to protest the oppressive communist regime in... read more
