Ban Abortions After 20 Weeks.


Babies feel pain as they are gruesomely murdered in the womb. It’s horrendous, but it’s legal. We’re fighting to ban this abhorrent practice. States nationwide are passing laws to ban abortions after 20 weeks – when science has proven babies can feel pain. Yet, the abortion industry has teamed up with the pro-abortion ACLU to viciously attack these bills – trying to kill these pro-life laws...

Stop the Shadow Government


It's an unprecedented bureaucratic coup undermining our security. The Obama Administration took action to empower the entrenched bureaucracy to subvert our national security right before leaving office. It has led to dangerous leaks, criminal violations of the Espionage Act, and the creation of a shadow government to sabotage the new Administration. We discovered that about two weeks before the...

Defend Our National Security from Jihad


ISIS (the Islamic State) has publicly called for jihadists to infiltrate and attack America. The ACLU, the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), and other leftist groups are challenging a new Executive order to keep America safe. For more than a year, we’ve advocated a pause in our refugee program and the implementation of vetting to ensure America is kept safe. President Trump’s new...

Stop Iran. Defend Israel. Protect America.


Iran is threatening America. It’s threatening Israel. It is violating international law. Iran has illegally conducted ballistic missile tests in direct contravention to a major U.N. resolution. It’s even violating the abysmally disastrous Iran nuclear deal. But even worse, Iran’s missiles actually have inscribed on them: “Israel must be destroyed.” Iran has taunted and terrorized our sailors. It...

Confirm Judge Gorsuch to Supreme Court


We must replace Justice Scalia with a staunch conservative. The next Supreme Court Justice will likely be the determinative vote on the most monumental issues of our time: abortion, religious liberty, national security, and free speech. President Trump has nominated Judge Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court. Judge Gorsuch is immensely qualified. He has a proven constitutional conservative record.

Confirm Sen. Sessions as Attorney General


President Obama’s radical allies on the Left are already trying to undermine the next President. The Attorney General of the United States – America's top law enforcement officer – is arguably a President's most important Cabinet member. Leftist extremists are leveling libelous lies at President-elect Trump's nominee – Senator Jeff Sessions. Sen. Sessions has been an ardent supporter of life, the...

Don’t Ban States from Defunding Abortion


It was President Obama’s most deadly lawlessness during his final days. As a parting stab in the back to life, the Obama Administration just issued an unthinkable regulation banning states from defunding Planned Parenthood’s abortion business. Planned Parenthood slaughters over 323,000 innocent babies a year – 900 babies murdered a day. It takes half a billion of your tax dollars. Planned...

Free American Pastor Andrew Brunson


A Christian pastor in Turkey has been arrested. He is in great danger. American Pastor Andrew Brunson – a U.S. citizen from North Carolina – has been falsely charged with “membership in an armed terrorist organization.” The charging documents state no “evidence has[] been gathered” against him. He has been a Christian pastor in Turkey for the past 23 years. Pastor Andrew has been transferred from...

Free Christian Pastor Hassan in Sudan


A Christian pastor on trial faces 12 years in prison for his Christian faith. In Sudan, there is a deadly crackdown on Christians. Two Christian pastors – Rev. Hassan Abduraheem and Rev. Kuwa Shamal – were arrested and imprisoned by Sudan’s Islamist Security Services on trumped-up national security charges because of their Christian faith. While your advocacy helped free Pastor Kuwa, Pastor...

Don’t Let India Make Our Fighter Jets


The Obama Administration is approving a plan to have India make our fighter jets. Right now F-16 and F-18 fighter jets are made in America. The Obama Administration is approving a plan to have them made in India. It’s more U.S. jobs shipped overseas. Even worse, it gives India the exclusive right to make parts for and sell one of our most important military assets to other foreign nations. It...

Defend the Integrity of the Election Process


Leftist agitators are attempting to delegitimize the presidential election. It’s an anarchist attempt to stop the certification of the election and undermine the constitutional process. The American people have spoken. Yet, some on the Left are filing lawsuits, demanding recounts in Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, and Michigan when election officials say there’s absolutely no evidence of fraud. We’re...

Stop the 73 Days of Danger


We face President Obama’s most dangerous 73 days. The election is over, but President Obama remains in office. There are reports he still has a “huge agenda.” He is plotting to abandon Israel, take numerous unconstitutional Executive actions, undermine the law, and more. We will not back down from fighting the insidious corruption. We have defeated his lawlessness before – including unanimously...

Demand a Full, Unbiased FBI Investigation


The FBI has just reopened its criminal investigation into “former Secretary Clinton’s personal email server.” New potentially classified emails “pertinent to the investigation” have just been discovered. The FBI must conduct a full, thorough, and unbiased investigation. Our national security was compromised. Classified information was put in jeopardy. The law was violated. But no one was held...

Impeach Obama's FBI Director Comey


FBI Director James Comey has broken the sacred trust of the American people. He conducted two faux investigations into the State Department email scandal. He handed out immunity and ignored evidence to protect the Clinton Team from prosecution. He put President Obama and Secretary of State Clinton’s political legacy ahead of the law. He made secret deals to destroy evidence, thwarting...

Defend Hero Maj. Brezler & Expose Evil


Another hero is being ejected from the military for doing what is right. Major Jason Brezler – a Marine – sent a dire warning to fellow soldiers in Afghanistan about a corrupt Afghan police chief who was sexually enslaving young children. It’s called “bacha bazi” – “boy play” – and terrorists are now using these tormented boys to attack our soldiers. His urgent warning of an impending attack came...

Don’t Force us to Pay to Murder Babies


One million babies murdered each year. But it could get a lot worse. You may be forced to pay for it. Planned Parenthood and its pro-abortion political allies are trying to repeal a law that bars your tax dollars from directly funding abortion. Before this law went into effect, you – the American taxpayer – paid for 25% of all abortions in the U.S. – 300,000 abortions a year. It can’t happen...

Protect Religion in Military & Chaplains


Anti-Christian extremists are attacking military chaplains for praying. Mikey Weinstein and the absurdly named Military Religious Freedom Foundation (MRFF) are demanding senior chaplains (including the two-star Air Force Chief of Chaplains) be investigated and punished for praying in uniform . . . at a religious freedom event. MRFF actually claims chaplains use Christianity “as a weapon to...

Defend Christian Attorneys from Death


A human rights attorney and his client were abducted and brutally murdered in Kenya. Our Christian attorneys on the ground in Kenya – who defend victims of human rights abuses – face new dangers. Our Kenyan team is battling to defend young girls from forced child marriages. We face the influence of corrupt politicians in court. They’ve threatened the girls who have exposed them and the witnesses...

Hold Corrupt, Lawless Admin. Accountable


It’s the most lawless Administration in history. Courts call President Obama’s Department of Justice (DOJ) “unethical.” The State Department lied about the disastrous Iran nuclear deal. The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) scrubs “Islam” and “jihad” from its files. The Administration covered up its Benghazi failures. The Clinton Foundation and State Department disturbingly colluded and may...

Demand AG Lynch Resign Now


Attorney General Lynch has broken the sacred trust of the American people. She just had a secret closed-door meeting on a taxpayer-funded jet with former President Bill Clinton – the husband of the target of an ongoing Department of Justice (DOJ) criminal investigation and potential witness. Attorney General Lynch violated federal regulations. She broke DOJ directives. It’s corruption at the...

Defeat ISIS & Islamic Jihadists


ISIS wants to destroy America and eradicate Christianity. ISIS (the Islamic State) has directed jihadists to attack America. Jihadists pledging allegiance to ISIS and radical Islam have attacked America, slaughtering dozens of Americans in multiple terrorist attacks. ISIS is at war with us. We must wage war on ISIS. We’ve literally written the book on the Rise of ISIS. Now we’ve developed a...

Hold Corrupt Unethical Admin Accountable


The Obama Administration is corrupt and unethical. It has deceived the American people, misled Congress, and is now making “multiple misrepresentations” in federal court. One federal court just held that the Obama Administration was “intentionally deceptive,” “unethical,” and acting “surreptitiously.” It violated a court order against an unconstitutional Executive action. Then it “misled” the...

Defend Israel from Anti-Israel Attacks


Israel is under constant deadly terrorist knife and rocket attacks. Jewish students, professors, and Christians who support Israel face vicious discrimination at U.S. universities – all in an attempt to delegitimize the State of Israel. A U.N. agency has called for Israel's destruction, labeling it an "apartheid" state. Israel is our ally. It’s our duty to defend them. We’re launching a massive...

Stop Sexual Enslavement of Kenyan Girls


Young Kenyan girls are being sexually enslaved. Girls – as young as ten – are married off to much older men as child brides. They are mutilated, raped, and traded as prizes. Before their wedding day, they undergo Female Genital Mutilation (FGM). Although this practice violates international law and Kenya’s constitution, local chiefs and communities continue this barbaric abuse with virtual...

Demand Truth on Obama Admin's Iran Lie


The Obama Administration lied. The Administration negotiated with the leading state sponsor of terrorism – Iran – long before the public knew. In fact, when directly asked about it, the Administration lied. Now they have censored a critical State Department briefing on this issue – eight minutes of video deleted. It’s a cover-up. There’s no two ways about it. They were the most critical...

Don't Murder Babies with Disabilities


Planned Parenthood wants babies with disabilities to die. It’s that simple. It’s that disgusting. And it should be illegal. One state passed a commonsense pro-life law outlawing selective abortions – killing babies simply because they may face potential mental or physical disabilities, or because of their race or sex. No child should be murdered because he or she is considered inferior. Yet,

Protect Our Troops’ Religious Liberty


Christians in the military face a radical new anti-Christian threat. Anti-Christian zealots at the Military Religious Freedom Foundation (MRFF) continue their efforts to deny religious liberty to our men and women in uniform by desecrating the true meaning of the U.S. Constitution. Their efforts to intimidate our soldiers and distort the truth continue, from attacking the National Day of Prayer...

Stop the Genocide. Protect Christians.


ISIS (the Islamic State) is waging genocide against Christians. It is barbarically slaughtering thousands. More than a million Christians have been driven from their homes in the wake of the most inhuman atrocities imaginable. It’s sickening: Christians abducted, beheaded, burned alive, and crucified. We successfully pressured the Obama Administration to recognize this “genocide against...

Don’t Ban Bible from Veterans Displays


Angry atheists are now trying to ban the Bible from displays honoring veterans. The vitriolic Military Religious Freedom Foundation (MRFF) – which views the Bible as a symbol of “religious oppression” – has forced three Veterans Affairs (VA) hospitals and a military base to ban the Bible from “Missing Man” displays. “Missing Man” displays honor our MIA and POW soldiers with a special table...

Defend Israel; Don’t Cripple Its Borders


President Obama betrayed Israel in his final days in office. The Obama Administration used the U.N. Security Council against Israel. It was a renewed attempt to abandon Israel, slash its borders, leave it defenseless, and force our greatest ally in the Middle East to make dangerous concessions to terrorists before negotiations even begin. Palestinian terrorists have launched over 300 attacks on...

No SCOTUS Confirmation Before Election


The American people deserve a voice in selecting our next Supreme Court Justice. Justice Scalia – one of the most brilliant and ardent defenders of the Constitution – has passed away. The next Justice could impact the Court and the direction of our nation for decades to come. Abortion, Executive overreach, and religious liberty are just a few of the critical issues before the Court this term. The...

Protect Afghani Kids from Sexual Torture


Young boys in Afghanistan face rampant and unspeakable sexual abuse. They are dressed up as women and forced to dance for older men. They are sold as sex slaves and raped multiple times a day. It’s called “ bacha bazi” – which means “boy play.” It’s gruesomely evil. What’s worse, there are multiple reports that the U.S. Military is ordering our troops to look the other way – even reports it’s...

Defeat Obama's Lawlessness at SCOTUS


Can the President unilaterally “change the law”? That is the monumental issue directly before the Supreme Court. The Constitution is clear. The President is not a king. Yet, President Obama directly violated the Constitution by imposing his lawless Executive action on immigration. He broke the law. The ACLJ is leading the charge to defend the Constitution. We’ve already filed several key briefs...

Defend “In God We Trust”


“In God We Trust” – Our National Motto – is under attack again. If this sounds familiar, it’s because we’ve been defeating atheist Michael Newdow’s attempts to banish “under God” and “In God We Trust” in federal court for over a decade. This time his new federal lawsuit is full of the same failed arguments: outlandishly claiming that our National Motto is “extremely offensive,” “bigotry,” and...

Don’t Close Gitmo and Release Terrorists


President Obama is endangering our national security to fulfill a disastrous campaign promise. In the State of the Union address, he once again vowed to subvert Congress and “shut down the prison at Guantanamo” (Gitmo) – holding some of the world’s most ruthless terrorists. He’s been releasing dozens of radical Islamic terrorists. 1 out of 3 jihadists end up back on the battlefield. We’re...

Defund Planned Parenthood Now


Last year President Obama forced you to give another half billion of your tax dollars to Big Abortion. Planned Parenthood aborted – murdered – 323,999 babies. That’s nearly 900 lives a day. The abortion giant also took more than $553 million of your tax dollars. That’s more than $1.5 million of our tax dollars every single day. Planned Parenthood is profiting from abortion, padding its bottom...

Recognize the Genocide; Protect Christians


ISIS jihadists behead, mutilate, torture, and rape Christians. The brutal toll: Nearly 1 million Christians have been slaughtered or displaced. ISIS – the Islamic State – is engaged in the blatant genocide of Christians in the Middle East. Yet President Obama refuses to recognize the genocide against Christians. He is pressuring the State Department to deny endangered Christians critical legal...

Protect America; Defeat & Destroy ISIS


ISIS – the Islamic State – attacked America. Last December, a couple unleashed jihadist terror at a Christmas party in San Bernardino, slaughtering 14 and injuring 21 more. And now, in the largest terrorist attack on U.S. soil since 9/11, 49 Americans were massacred and dozens more were injured at a Florida night club. All of these terrorists pledged loyalty to ISIS. ISIS continues to call for...

Protect a Christian Girl


Muslim attackers brutalized an 8-year-old Christian girl. This young girl – Parwasha – was kidnapped, stripped, and beaten. Her attackers then left her naked and shamed in the streets of Pakistan. Like happens so often in Pakistan, a Muslim family had a vendetta against a Christian family because of their faith. They attacked this innocent girl. Even worse, town authorities refused to prosecute...

Protect America from ISIS Terror


ISIS – the Islamic State – is a jihadist army. It has declared war on liberty and freedom. One by one, ISIS executed innocent civilians in Paris and now Brussels. ISIS has beheaded American journalists. ISIS is trying to exterminate Christians. It has promised to infiltrate refugee camps to export terror. Now it is threatening to attack America. We must protect persecuted Christians. We must...

Don’t Ban the Bible. Defend It.


Banning the Bible. That’s what one angry atheist group is trying to do in hotels at public universities. The anti-Christian Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF) is demanding that the Bible – placed by a Christian group – be banned from university hotel rooms. It’s already had them banned from universities in Illinois, Wisconsin, and Iowa. FFRF extremists call the Bible “obnoxious” and...

Defeat the Abortion-Pill Mandate


The abortion-pill mandate is crushing religious liberty. Pro-life ministries are being forced to pay for or provide abortion pills – or face crippling fines. Christian nuns – serving the poor – face the choice to comply with President Obama’s abortion-pill mandate or pay enormous financial penalties. President Obama’s so-called “accommodation” is nothing more than accounting gimmicks. His...

Destroy ISIS. Protect Christians.


ISIS – the Islamic State – is beheading, crucifying, and slaughtering Christians. The radical Islamic army is threatening to terrorize America. It is waging jihadist genocide against Christians, raping women, and enslaving children. Yet, President Obama has called ISIS a “JV” team. He says it can be “managed.” He’s flat wrong. And hundreds are dying daily. The only way to stop this evil and...

Stop the Shutdown of Pro-Life Centers


The abortion industry is attempting to censor, silence, and shut down the lifesaving work of pro-life pregnancy centers. Planned Parenthood and NARAL Pro-Choice America are conspiring with pro-abortion legislators all across America to stop pro-life centers’ lifesaving work. A new pro-abortion California law forces crisis pregnancy centers to refer women for “free or low-cost . . . abortion” or...

Defend a Hero; Stop Child Sexual Abuse


It’s shameful and despicable. The U.S. Army is threatening to kick out a Green Beret war hero for defending a child from rape. What’s worse are reports that the military has allowed Afghanistan forces to sexually abuse young children on U.S. bases. Children – young boys and girls – are being raped and abused, and Sergeant Charles Martland said, “We felt a moral obligation to act.” For his action,

Defund Terrorists at War with Israel


The Palestinian Authority (PA) is a state sponsor of terrorism. The PA broke the 1995 Oslo Peace Accords with Israel, directly violating international law. Israel could be attacked once again at any moment – its citizens targeted by terrorists. Even more troubling – last year alone, the PA paid $315 million to Palestinians carrying out terrorist attacks against Israel. We’re taking direct action...

Defend Religious Freedom on Campuses


School chaplains are once again in the crosshairs of angry atheists. The extreme anti-Christian Freedom from Religion Foundation (FFRF) is attacking some of the best college football programs and coaches in the nation. Why? They claim that purely voluntary religious activities violate the Constitution. They are attacking the First Amendment free exercise rights of coaches and players, even...

Stop ISIS’s Genocide of Christians


ISIS is brutal beyond words. It is beheading, raping, and selling Christians. Hundreds of thousands of Christians have been forced to flee or die – to abandon their lives or allow their children to be sold as sex slaves. But where can they run? For more than a year, ISIS’s jihadist army has been on a bloody rampage, profiting from genocide, and tracking down Christians for sale and slaughter. It...

Investigate Sec. of State Clinton Emails


Our national security was put at great risk. Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton (America’s top diplomat in charge of national security) used an unsecured, private email server – stored at her home – for “Top Secret” State Department emails. Federal laws may have been broken. Critical classified State Department documents were unsecured. Our diplomats – our national security – were...

Let Christian Pastors Michael & Peter Go


Two Christian Pastors have been banned from leaving Sudan. Their lives are again in great danger. Pastors Michael and Peter were recently released from a possible death sentence, but they are not truly free. Sudan – which charged these two innocent pastors with false “crimes” for their Christian faith carrying the death penalty – has now placed a travel ban on the pastors. They can’t return home.
