Federalist 62. Madison reminds us that the election of U.S. Senators by their respective state legislatures secured state rights or authority. In your opinion, how might a return to this vital constitutional principle become a key element in empowering a push back against federal intrusion into powers our heaven inspired Constitution clearly retained as jurisdictionally belonging to state & local governments, to families & individuals, to private businesses, churches, & charities?


2012 Victories: Abortion Pill Mandate Temporarily Blocked, Religious Liberty Defended

aclj protestMATTHEW CLARK, ACLJ

This is the latest installment in a year-end series looking back at a few of the hundreds of victories by the ACLJ in 2012.

Dozens of cases have been filed against President Obama’s abortion-pill mandate, which forces people of faith to pay for abortion pills in volition of their religious liberty.  Yet, just a few weeks ago, a federal appellate court for the first time temporarily blocked the mandate for one of our clients.

As this critical case move forward, our clients who own a business in Missouri will not be forced to violate their faith by paying for abortion pills.  We fully expect that the abortion-pill mandate will eventually be decided at the Supreme Court.  This temporary block on the mandate is an important step forward in this critical religious liberty litigation.

The ACLJ has already filed three challenges, including this one, to the HHS mandate and has filed briefs in over a dozen other cases around the country.  Our argument is simple: no American should be forced to violate their faith by paying for abortion pills.  We will continue to defend religious liberty against the nearly limitless resources of the Obama Justice Department, and this is an important victory in the fight for religious liberty.

To help the ACLJ continue to have the resources we need to make these victories possible and continue these fights, please consider making a tax-deductible donation to the ACLJ through our year-end Matching Challenge. Your gift will be matched dollar-for-dollar though the end of the year.
