Doctors and Nurses Forced to Perform Abortions

By Jordan Sekulow1566419304235

At the ACLJ, we are committed to defending life and that includes the life of the unborn.

Recently, there were two important victories out of the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals against the number one abortion provider in the world, Planned Parenthood. The 9th Circuit has not usually been a court that is friendly to those with pro-life positions. Usually, the decisions that we see coming out of the 9th Circuit are ones that we believe we will have to appeal to the Supreme Court.

But because of recent judicial nominations the 9th Circuit is becoming less friendly to those on the far Left. 

The Trump Administration’s Department of Health and Human Services recently issued a new rule on Title X funding, which is funding designated to be used on family planning services. Under that rule, which Congress authorized, they can stop funding, with our tax dollars, organizations and clinics that promote and perform abortions. That means that Planned Parenthood doesn’t automatically get the funding, and can be denied the funds because of the fact that they do perform abortions.

Planned Parenthood challenged it in federal court, and they lost right away at the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals before a three-judge panel, so they appealed it en banc (to an 11-judge panel) and lost again 7-4. That is a significant victory for life. It is a loss of $60 million a year going to Planned Parenthood.

These fights don’t end there. We represent a nurse, Cynthia Isabell, who applied for a teaching position at Indiana University South Bend. She was denied that position because of her pro-life views. She was denied for a maternity teaching position where she would be teaching nursing students, nothing to do with performing abortions.

The ACLJ not only fights for the lives of the unborn, but we also fight for the freedoms of those who hold pro-life positions so they’re not excluded from public life or work positions where they are well qualified. If you want to take action on this, go to our petition and join thousands of others in signing a petition to stop forcing doctors and nurses to perform abortions when it violates their conscience.  Join us as we continue to fight what’s next from the abortion industry.

CANCELED: Margaret Sanger – Founder of Planned Parenthood

By Olivia Summers1596636817979

It is well documented – and we’ve been telling you for years – that Planned Parenthood’s founder, Margaret Sanger, was a eugenicist who believed that society could, and should, create a superior race of people. Yet, Planned Parenthood has repeatedly overlooked its founder’s racist ideals and goals...

By Jordan Sekulow1596207900343

Conscience Rights Violated Even at Religiously Affiliated Hospitals?

By Jordan Sekulow1595854800000

The American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ) Friday filed a friend-of-the-court brief urging the U.S. Supreme Court to put the Constitution itself ahead of its misguided pro-abortion precedents. As the ACLJ brief phrases it: [I]f fidelity to the Constitution is to be a hallmark of this Court as...
