It's horrifying. Pakistani Christians are terrorized, tortured, murdered – even sentenced to death – simply because of their faith. The Pakistani government seems unable or unwilling to protect its Christian citizens. We've just taken urgent action at the U.N. Human Rights Council, filing a crucial legal submission , asking for intervention. We are asking the world’s leaders to take urgent action. Our legal submission stated: The Islamic Republic of Pakistan continues to violate the human... read more

“In our system, state-operated schools may not be enclaves of totalitarianism. School officials do not possess absolute authority over their students. . . . [S]tudents may not be regarded as closed-circuit recipients of only that which the State chooses to communicate. They may not be confined to the expression of those sentiments that are officially approved. . . . [S]chool officials cannot suppress ‘expressions of feelings with which they do not wish to contend.’” Tinker v. Des Moines Indep. read more
As we have previously told you , the United Nations (U.N.) Security Council passed a critical resolution that would help bring ISIS to justice and provide the aid and security that the Christians and others victimized by the ISIS genocide so desperately need. The first step of Security Council Resolution 2379 required the U.N. Secretary-General to submit for approval his Terms of Reference. Recently we told you that the Secretary-General has submitted these Terms of Reference and that they have... read more

Everyone’s heard the old adage, people who live in glass houses should not throw stones. Well based on the accusations being hurled by Big Abortion ambassador Cecile Richards, the house should be shattering all around her. Cecile Richards, who recently jumped ship from her role as CEO of flailing abortion giant Planned Parenthood, just demonstrated she can comfortably and confidently lie and cast aspersions, even when the facts contradict her every statement. It’s dumbfounding. Case and point: read more
In an outrageous miscarriage of justice, American Pastor Andrew Brunson’s trial just got a lot worse. In a cruel show of abject hostility and blatant disregard for any semblance of the rule of law – proving beyond a shadow of a doubt that this trial is a completely and utter sham – the Turkish judges essentially threw out all the witnesses for Pastor Andrew’s defense. We recently reported to you how over the course of 11 grueling hours, 7 witnesses for the prosecution (2 secret and 5 open – 2... read more
A huge step forward in the fight to defend innocent lives and defund Big Abortion would be to follow historical precedent and reinstate the pro-life policies of the Reagan Administration. The ACLJ has joined over 85 pro-life groups across the country, sending a letter directly to the Secretary of Health and Human Services (HHS), demanding an end to tax dollar funding of abortion businesses, like Planned Parenthood, through Title X. The Title X Family Planning Program (Public Law 91-572, or... read more
Today, May 14, 2018 will be remembered as a truly historic day. Today the U.S. embassy officially moves to Jerusalem – a victory decades in the making. I am in Jerusalem for the historic occasion.

The realignment of Saudi Arabia, Egypt, and Jordan as well as a number of the Gulf States now as allies of Israel is already... read more
It’s a shocking investigatory misstep. We’ve just obtained new FOIA documents showing that the Comey-led FBI lost the chain of custody for one of Hillary Clinton’s email servers during its supposed investigation. In September of last year, the ACLJ issued a FOIA request to the FBI seeking, among other things, documents concerning the FBI’s investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of a personal email server in sending and receiving classified documents. In response to that request, the FBI... read more
