Stop Barbaric New Abortion Laws

 Signatures1568753130426

The state of New York passed one of the most barbaric abortion laws in U.S. history, essentially making it legal to abort a baby at any stage of pregnancy, up to the moment of birth. Now, this horrific expansion of abortion is spreading internationally. Laws are being proposed worldwide to expand abortion to the moment of birth and to undo conscience protections for medical professionals and those who are saving lives. These New York-style barbaric abortion bills would add nations like New... read more

Stop Forcing Churches to Disregard Their Faith

 Signatures1567789088987

Churches and religious charities are pressured and even forced to disregard their faith by the government. The right to hire individuals who share a church or a charity’s faith is one of the most important rights a religious organization possesses. It is particularly important that a faith-based organization’s right to hire like-minded people not be infringed. Federal law protects these rights, but many times laws are ignored or unenforced. At the ACLJ, we’ve fought these cases in court and... read more

Stop Government Harassment of Christians

 Signatures1565965721993

Imagine being targeted by the government for saying "Jesus loves you." It sounds shocking, but it's happening in America right now. We’re taking legal action to fight back. A Virginia state agency has targeted, harassed, and discriminated against a Christian realtor just for putting a Bible verse (John 3:16) on her website and including "Jesus loves you" in her email signature. No one should be targeted by government agencies for expressing their Christian faith. Targeted harassment and... read more

Stop Forcing Doctors and Nurses to Perform Abortions

 Signatures1562946867159

Pro-life doctors and nurses are pressured and even forced into assisting in abortions. Pharmacists are targeted for refusing to dispense abortion pills. The right of conscience – the right not to violate one’s faith – is one of the most sacred rights we all possess. Federal laws protect medical professionals and religious hospitals from being forced to violate their faith – from being forced to perform, promote, or be involved in abortions. But many times these federal laws are ignored or... read more

Stop the Abortion Distortion from Silencing Life

 Signatures1560529712858

The abortion industry is not only killing innocent babies, it’s unconstitutionally silencing lifesaving speech. The abortion lobby has found a way to manipulate the law, making it illegal to try to save babies’ lives outside Planned Parenthood or other abortion clinics. They’re called “bubble zones.” And they target and ban one-on-one pro-life speech – sidewalk counseling – within a certain distance from abortion clinics. These laws are unconstitutional. Yet a dangerous decision from the... read more

Protect Babies. Defend Heartbeat Bills.

 Signatures1558019881651

Nearly a million babies are killed every year through abortions. Their precious heartbeats are stopped in devastating ways. Some states are expanding abortion all the way until a baby’s first breath; others are promoting infanticide. But many states are passing vital pro-life laws to protect babies. Some ban abortion as soon as a heartbeat can be detected. At the ACLJ, our legal teams have been working with state legislatures to craft these bills that will help save countless unborn babies’ read more

Defeat Unconstitutional ObamaCare Now

 Signatures1555968838279

ObamaCare is unconstitutional. We’ve been saying it for almost a decade. But now a federal judge has just ruled that the behemoth pro-abortion government takeover of healthcare is unconstitutional and must be struck down. We know that ObamaCare is the Left’s first step toward single-payer, socialist healthcare. With the Green New Deal, the radical Left has already made it clear that single payer is step two. But now we have one last chance to end ObamaCare in the courts. The case has been... read more

Investigate Deep State Spying on Political Enemies

 Signatures1555014619335

“I think there was spying.” These words by the Attorney General should send shockwaves through America. American citizens – and even possibly a political campaign – were spied on, and the only question is whether it was “adequately predicated.” In other words, was proper procedure followed, or was there rampant political bias and Deep State abuse of our legal system? We’ve long warned of FISA (Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act) abuses by the Deep State bureaucracy. We’ve been fully engaged... read more

Recognize Israel’s Sovereignty and Right to Defend Itself

 Signatures1554754639859

Israel is under constant, devastating rocket attacks. It captured the Golan Heights in 1967 when it was attacked by Syria – as a key defensive position. This elevated region in the northern part of Israel is critical to its safety and security. It can either be used to protect Israel or to rain down terror upon the Israeli people. It must remain under Israeli control and sovereignty. We’ve been fighting for decades – all across the globe – to defend Israel’s interests and sovereignty at the... read more

Confirm Conservative Judges Now

 Signatures1552403557270

The Left knows the best way to advance its radical agenda is to block qualified conservative judges. This time it’s making a concerted effort to defeat and delay the confirmation of federal appellate and district court judges. Radical Senators have even attacked the faith of Christian nominees. Since taking office, the President has nominated over 150 eminently qualified, conservative judges, including 2 Supreme Court Justices, yet dozens of key judicial seats remain empty because the Senate... read more
