The ACLJ applauds today’s announcement by the Office of Civil Rights (OCR) of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) regarding a Complaint we filed on behalf of a Vermont nurse who was forced into participating in an abortion procedure against her deeply held religious beliefs. In our Complaint , we alleged that our client, an operating room nurse at the University of Vermont Medical Center (UVMMC) in Burlington, was coerced into assisting in an abortion in 2017 even though her... read more

Earlier this year, the Trump Administration dealt a painful blow to Planned Parenthood and other abortion businesses through a new rule blocking millions from abortion providers. Now is the first deadline for the abortion industry to prove it’s complying. The ACLJ has been involved in this fight to block taxpayer funds under Title X from going to the abortion industry for decades. We submitted official public comments in support of the rule. We also asked ACLJ members to take action and submit... read more

The ACLJ’s international affiliate, the European Centre for Law and Justice’s (ECLJ) office in Pakistan, the Organization for Legal Aid (OLA), has achieved another victory. Saleem Masih, a Christian man, was falsely accused of burning pages of the Quran, an offense under Pakistan’s blasphemy laws punishable with life imprisonment. Muhammad Bilal and Ayesha, who pressed charges against Saleem, converted from Christianity to Islam in January of 2019 and are related to Saleem. Unfortunately, this... read more

It’s a major victory in our fight to defund the taxpayer-funded abortion industry, and a painful blow to Planned Parenthood. In fact, Planned Parenthood said “ This is devastating .” Despite the legal action of Planned Parenthood and a group of pro-abortion states to stop it, the new Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) rule that will in effect block millions of tax dollars under Title X from abortion providers goes into effect immediately . The HHS Center for Faith and Opportunity... read more

The ACLJ’s international affiliate, the European Centre for Law and Justice (ECLJ), has achieved another victory in the fight against bonded labor in Pakistan. On June 21, 2019, the ECLJ’s affiliate in Pakistan, the Organization for Legal Aid, obtained the freedom of a Pakistani Christian family after two years of forced labor. Babar Masih, his wife, and their four young children – were forced to perform farm labor on behalf of a Muslim man, Muhammad Asif. When Asif hired Babar Masih, he loaned... read more

Today, by a 7-2 vote, the Supreme Court upheld the constitutionality of the Bladensburg Peace Cross. Speaking for the majority of the Court, Justice Alito eloquently wrote: The cross is undoubtedly a Christian symbol, but that fact should not blind us to everything else that the Bladensburg Cross has come to represent. For some, that monument is a symbolic resting place for ancestors who never returned home. For others, it is a place for the community to gather and honor all veterans and their... read more

It’s bad enough that the abortion industry receives taxpayer support, but the fact that it can then earn additional profit by selling aborted babies’ body parts for medical research is infuriating. We’ve been demanding an end to this disgusting practice, and now the federal government has agreed. In a monumental win for life, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) under President Trump just ended a disturbing contract between the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and a California... read more

There is nothing more innocent than a baby still growing in the mother’s womb. They don’t know anger. They don’t know hate. They don’t know Republican from Democrat. They only know love. Yet more and more states are considering legislation that would allow those innocent lives to be taken, even up to the moment of birth. But in another historic victory for defenseless, unborn babies, Louisiana has just become the latest state to take a bold stand to protect these precious unborn lives. And by... read more

Our European Centre for Law and Justice (ECLJ) affiliate in Pakistan, the Organization for Legal Aid, has secured another victory. This time, a Christian bonded laborer was falsely accused by his Muslim employer of stealing money. The Christian man’s real “crime” was asking to be paid according to the labor laws of Pakistan. Ghafar Masih, the Christian man who was falsely accused of theft by his employer, Shahid Sharif, had been working at Shahid’s brick kiln as a bonded laborer for about five... read more

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
