Early in the morning of May 20th, without waiting for his family to kiss him goodbye one last time, Dr Sanchez sedated Vincent Lambert to profoundly anaesthetize him, and simultaneously removed his hydration and nutrition to provoke his death. His agony, and the distress of his parents, followed live by the French, were to last the whole week. Yet, last May 3rd, the U.N. Committee on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities, which had received an application by the Lambert parents at the... read more

Last year, as we explained in more detail here , the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (“HHS”) proposed an administrative rule designed to enforce federal statutory rights of conscience. These laws , in different contexts and various ways, protect the rights of medical personnel from being coerced into violating their moral or religious beliefs in the delivery of healthcare services. Though many of these conscience laws have been on the books for decades, they unfortunately have been... read more

Today marks a huge victory for a Christian woman and for religious freedom, as after suffering a 10-year nightmare ordeal, Asia Bibi is finally, officially, safe and free. According to reports from multiple news outlets, Asia Bibi’s attorney confirms that she is now out of Pakistan and safely in Canada. Nine years ago, the Christian mother of five was sentenced to hang because she offered a Muslim coworker a cup of water. As a Christian she was considered unclean, and as a result of her... read more

On Friday, April 12th, the ICC Pre-Trial Chamber assigned to monitor the ongoing situation in Afghanistan denied the ICC Prosecutor’s request to begin a formal investigation of war crimes and crimes against humanity allegedly committed by Taliban, Afghan government, and NATO forces (including U.S. forces) during the ongoing conflict in Afghanistan. This a wonderful, albeit temporary , victory for our men and women serving in Afghanistan. Yet, no Americans should ever have been investigated in... read more

The Trump Administration, as part of its expansion of the Mexico City Policy, just announced that it will prohibit U.S. taxpayer funds from funding or even supporting abortion internationally. Last week, in another step validating this Administration’s support of life, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo announced that in enforcing the Mexico City Policy, the State Department is working to ensure that not only are U.S. funds not going to fund “nongovernmental organizations that perform or actively... read more

The ACLJ recently defended the constitutional rights of a child that had been infringed upon by the school administration. The child, who is in fourth grade, routinely enjoyed reading from his Bible during recess. The principal of the school, however, confiscated his Bible and told him that he was no longer allowed to read from it. The child was also prohibited from meeting with other Christians during recess to discuss their religious beliefs. The ACLJ immediately intervened and contacted the... read more

Just when things looked most grim for innocent unborn babies in New Mexico, a bill to codify Roe v. Wade , and legalize abortion up until the moment of birth was shot down by the State Senate in a bipartisan vote. Just like we told you happened in New York, where the state’s governor signed a bill into law that made it legal to abort a baby at any stage, even up to the moment of birth, New Mexico’s proposed legislation, HB 51, would have decriminalized late-term abortion and infanticide. read more

We just helped secure a significant court victory that could become a roadmap toward defunding Planned Parenthood. Recently, the Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit upheld an Ohio law that prohibited taxpayer dollars from flowing to abortion providers. As we explained earlier , the law precluded organizations that provide and advocate for abortion from participating in six state health education programs related to pregnancy support, maternal health, and STD/HIV prevention. Planned... read more

This is a good day for the Organization for Legal Aid (OLA), our international affiliate the European Centre for Law and Justice (ECLJ) in Pakistan. We have successfully recovered a Christian family of five from captivity, forced labor, and physical torture. Imran Masih’s family is finally free after nearly five years of bonded labor and severe brutality. On March 11, 2019, the Lahore High Court granted our habeas corpus petition, appointing a court official and a police squad to recover the... read more

The abortion industry’s efforts to intimidate, harass, and shut down pro-life pregnancy centers are relentless. They file lawsuits. They fund politicians’ campaigns. They covertly send abortion supporters into pregnancy centers (who pose as potential clients) looking for anything that can be used against them. To them, anything and anyone who stands in their way must be stopped. Any alternative to unrestricted abortion must be silenced. And New York City – the abortion capital of the world – read more
