Thanks to more than half-a-century of Supreme Court decisions, the answer to that question is no . The Court has stated time and time again that “freedom of speech prohibits the government from telling people what they must say.” Can the government force a pro-life pregnancy counseling center to advertise a state-run program that offers free or low-cost abortions?

In a victory for Israel and for American tax payers, President Trump is reportedly poised to end all U.S. funding to the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestinian Refugees (UNRWA), a unique U.N. agency that has kept the Israeli-Palestinian conflict alive since 1948.

Religious liberty is still under attack here in America. Last week, the ACLJ stepped in to ensure that a church in Montana would be able to open its doors and worship at its new location.

The Supreme Court of the United States today upheld President Trump’s National Security Proclamation and reversed the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeal’s contrary decision. The Proclamation, issued this past September, fulfilled the promise of President Trump’s March 6, 2017 National Security Executive Order.

Within just days of one victory in a National Motto case , another federal appellate court dismissed a similar lawsuit brought by a Satanist. The self-proclaimed “Satanist,” Kenneth Mayle, had sued the United States government, claiming that the National Motto – “In God We Trust” – on currency violates his constitutional rights under the Free Speech and Free Exercise Clauses. Specifically, Mayle claimed that, in holding and using currency, he is compelled to proclaim the “existence of” and... read more
