ACLJ Dispatches Lawyers and City Council Backs Down

1 year ago

We have a very big update to share as we just secured a CRITICAL VICTORY in Colorado.

Last night we deployed a team of lawyers to deliver a legal demand letter against Pueblo, Colorado's City Council that canceled pro-life witnesses while opening the doors to an infamous partial-birth abortionist. We secured a new hearing with pro-life witnesses on Monday.

The hearing involves extreme abortionist LeRoy Carhart, who is known for performing late-term and partial-birth abortions (before the Supreme Court upheld the federal Partial-Birth Abortion Ban) and has now chosen Pueblo as the location of his latest diabolical abortion clinic because Colorado has no abortion restrictions at any stage of gestation – perfect for his historically ghoulish methods.

ACLJ attorneys were recently contacted by a pro-life pregnancy center organization that says some of its members were asked to testify before a city council executive committee regarding a newly proposed city ordinance and a new late-term abortion clinic in the town of Pueblo, CO. Of course as you know they originally invited pro-life advocates to speak, as well as pro-abortionists. But then the night before the hearing, they then DISINVITED the pro-life speakers. But of course, not the abortion advocates.

That’s when we sent an ACLJ attorney directly to Pueblo, where she appeared before the chamber to hand-deliver our legal letter and was given the first ten minutes of the hearing to make her voice heard. And it immediately changed the mood and opinions in the room. Members of the council actually admitted from the bench that it was wrong to only allow one side to speak. One even remarked that they were surprised to see the pro-life workers removed from the agenda. Somehow, the live feed of the council meeting mysteriously went out right after our attorney began to speak. But nonetheless, it had the right impact.

Now pro-life witnesses will speak at the hearing because the ACLJ took immediate action. This a big win for the innocent unborn, to know expert voices will be defending them. This is why your support for the ACLJ is so critical. We were able to have a lawyer on a plane, with letter in hand, to take swift action for pro-life witnesses and for defenseless unborn babies – in less than 24 hours. And now the people of Pueblo will get to hear exactly who wants to move to town and can make an informed decision for themselves as to whether they want to host a clinic with such vile practices.
