It has been said, “Victory is won, not in miles, but in inches. Win a little now, hold your ground, and later, win a little more.”
In the fight against the brutal act of abortion that daily claims innocent lives, it is easy to lose sight of the small victories that are being won; but those victories do exist, and it is important to celebrate them so that we can be encouraged, hold the ground that we have gained, and regroup to win some more.
During the last month, we have continuously updated you on the investigative journalism that is exposing the depths of Planned Parenthood’s barbaric nature. We also informed you of the disappointment we faced when a pro-abortion minority blocked a Senate bill to defund Planned Parenthood, forcing tax payers to continue to fund an organization that profits from butchering children.
We now want to take the time to encourage you—to let you know of the actions that are being taken to end state funding of Planned Parenthood. In the last few weeks, three states—Alabama, Louisiana, and New Hampshire—have restricted or ended funding for Planned Parenthood. And they are not the only states to have done so. Prior to the recent controversy, Arizona, Arkansas, Colorado, Indiana, Kansas, Michigan, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, Texas, and Wisconsin also limited state funding for the abortion industry. With the recent addition of three, thirteen states are now fighting against taxpayer funding for big abortion—we are gaining ground.
It is not, however, without challenge that this ground has been gained. In the past, courts have limited the ability of states to withhold funding for abortion. But, as we have stated before, now is the time to act; now is the time to gain more ground. With a new awareness of the horrific and cruel nature of abortion, more and more people are willing to engage in this issue and less willing to allow their tax dollars to facilitate the deaths of innocent children.
We here at the ACLJ are well aware of the legal battle ahead, but it’s well worth the fight. The revelations of Planned Parenthood’s barbarity make the case to defund the abortion giant stronger in court. We’ve defended these laws before, and we’re ready to do so again. As always, we will continue to fight for life! We encourage you to be proactive as well, and to let your representatives know that taxpayer funding for abortion must end.
We're aggressively battling in Congress and in federal court to defeat big abortion. Your gift today – of any amount – could save a life.
In 1970, New York established itself as the abortion capital of American when it passed the most permissible abortion law in America. To this day, New York is one of the most abortion friendly states in the U.S. In 2014, abortions in the U.S. occurred at a rate of 14.6 abortions per 1,000 women .
Big Abortion is shaken, but it’s rallying its troops and plotting ways to expand its reach to circumvent pro-life laws. We told you how Planned Parenthood and the pro-abortion Left was in an all-out panic at the thought of a conservative Supreme Court majority. They took to social media to stir up...
The tentacles of Big Abortion are snaking their way across the globe to constrict the voices of Pro-Life workers. Lawmakers are trying to make pro-life pregnancy centers promote abortion to desperate pregnant women looking for answers and help. This might sound familiar, but it’s not just happening...
Late last week, in yet another failure to fulfill its campaign promise, a majority of the U.S. Senate failed to defund Planned Parenthood. An amendment offered by Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) would have defunded Planned Parenthood and other abortion providers. The Senate rejected the amendment by a vote...
