National Christian Legal Organization Petitions California Supreme Court to Uphold Proposition 8 | Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF) has been one of the main legal entities defending Proposition 8 in the courts, including in the U.S. Supreme Court, which declined to rule on the matter last month . . . “Everyone on all sides of the marriage debate should agree that the legal process must be followed. Public officials should enforce the marriage amendment because they are not bound by the district court’s injunction,” Senior Counsel Austin R. Nimocks stated. “The U.S. Supreme Court did not rule on the constitutionality of Proposition 8, and the district court’s injunction does not apply statewide; therefore, county clerks should abide by the state Constitution.” “The more than 7 million Californians that approved Proposition 8 have a right to see the rule of law–and the constitutional initiatives that the people enact–respected,” he added.

Abortionist who missed decapitated head ‘followed all laws’ | WorldNetDaily

    WorldNetDaily (7/7): “We are grateful that the attorney general continues to be concerned about the safety of women, which is clearly more important than abortionists’ bottom-line profits. It is shocking to see that Women’s Health Center of West Virginia believes that what it did to Itai Gravely could possibly be called ‘quality medical care services’ in light of the serious allegations against it,” said Jeremiah Dys, the president of the Family Policy Council of West Virginia. He’s also an allied attorney with the Alliance Defending Freedom. “Whatever ‘regulations’ it thinks are ‘currently on the books’ – and we believe there are none – Dr. Stephens and Women’s Health Center of West Virginia exposed Itai to extraordinary suffering and placed her life in danger. We continue to urge the governor to end his silence on this issue and join with the attorney general in leading this state’s implementation of sensible abortion regulations.”
