    Planned Parenthood Puts Its Mouth Where Its Money is this Election

    The abortion industry has gone all in this election. Big abortion knows that its bottom line is directly connected to the politics of abortion.

    Elect pro-abortion candidates who will deregulate dangerous abortion practices and their bottom line goes up. Elect pro-life candidates who will place even the most commonsense limitations on abortion and enact reforms to protect women and their bottom line goes down.

    So the abortion industry is putting its mouth where its money is.

    Life Prevails Despite Supreme Court Denial of Review in Pro-Life Pregnancy Center Case

    Today, the Supreme Court declined to weigh into a case that had the potential to cripple or even shut down pro-life pregnancy centers in New York City.

    Thankfully, the ruling of the Second Circuit Court of Appeals in Evergreen Association v. City of New York, which now stands as the final arbiter of the case, struck down two of three of the provisions of the law that we at the ACLJ challenged as unconstitutional. Though that court stopped short of striking the entire law, it now stands as merely a shell of the law initially proposed by abortion radicals to shutdown the lifesaving work of pro-life pregnancy centers.

    Elections Have Consequences So Don’t Bury Your Vote

    On a near daily basis, we receive a number of callers into our daily radio program at the ACLJ , Jay Sekulow Live!, rightfully upset about the most recent appalling Executive overreach by the President or devastating vote in the Senate or House of Representatives.

    The question always comes up: “Isn’t there something we can do to stop this outrage?”

    Our Chief Counsel Jay Sekulow’s answer is always the same. “Elections have consequences.”

    And we’re the ones to blame for those consequences.

    There’s No Such Thing as a “Self-Radicalized” Islamic Terrorist

    “Self-radicalized.”

    It’s a term you are bound to hear a lot of, along with “lone wolf” and “recent convert to Islam,” in the wake of two separate terrorist attacks in Canada and one in New York City last week.

    Yet there is no such thing, and the label, more than mere semantics, trivializes and belies the reality we face.

    Federal Court Puts Road Block in the Way of Justice for Conservatives Targeted by the IRS

    The fight for justice is never the easy road, and it doesn’t always win the first round.

    Yesterday a federal district court dismissed two lawsuits (at least a majority of the claims) brought on behalf of conservative groups who were targeted by the IRS.

    Unfortunately, the court’s ruling is based on what we believe is a mistaken interpretation of the law that would allow corruption to continue unfettered at the highest levels of federal government and deny justice to those who had their constitutional rights violated.

    The Radical Left Celebrates the Success of Their Deception Over Abortion

    It’s one of the most heartbreaking things I’ve ever read.

    A woman about to abort her unborn child wrote a sadly naive letter to her child, which she refers to as her “Little Thing”. She is clearly deceived, fallen victim to the abortion distortion pushed by the radical left in the media and our society today. And the Culture of Death is reveling in her deception and pain.

    Devastatingly, this woman truly believes that the life she is about to take is not a life at all, and that she will have another opportunity to have this same child sometime later. She honestly believes she’s doing the right thing.

    Now that threat appears to be a reality.
