For as long as anyone can remember—for over seventy years, according to archived records—Rowan County, North Carolina, commissioners have opened their meetings with prayer. Not surprisingly, the ACLU challenged this longstanding practice in a case known as Lund v. Rowan County, taking particular umbrage with the name of Jesus being used in some of these prayers.
In the wake of Kermit Gosnell’s abortion mill horrors, the state of Texas responsibly passed a 2013 law that requires abortion clinics have the same health standards as surgical centers and that physicians performing abortions have privileges at a nearby hospital to admit patients with complications.
In a deeply disconcerting though not surprising move, in early 2015, Canada joined five states in the US* in legalizing so-called “assisted dying,” allowing doctors nationwide to take the life of a suffering patient when the patient has a “grievous and irremediable” illness.
Thank you for standing with us as we continue to defend religious liberties nationwide.
Often this battle begins not at the federal level but in the states. One such example is in Pennsylvania, where the LGBT lobby is hard at work promoting “The Bathroom Bill” (SB 1306). In truth, this bill involves much more than just bathrooms.
Thank you for your unwavering support of the National Center for Life and Liberty. As part of our ongoing efforts to defend the sanctity of human life, we’ve recently filed an amicus brief with the Florida Supreme Court. This brief defends a Florida law, known as the Informed Patient Consent Law, requiring a 24-hour waiting period before any abortion.
The National Center for Life and Liberty continues to stand in the gap for churches, Christian schools, ministries, and law-abiding Americans, doing everything possible to protect their religious liberties and constitutional rights. We will not cower to the overt resistance confronting believers nor yield to the egregious measures designed to intimidate them. It is God who granted these most basic rights, and because no man can take away what God has granted, by His grace and strength, the NCLL will defend them.
