Why does the ERLC stand for life?
We believe in the dignity of every human life because each person is created in the image of God. We stand for life because we serve a God who rejoices in life and who brings about newness of life through the power of the gospel. Our work to save preborn babies and care for the vulnerable is vital to our mission.
How does the ERLC stand for life?
We stand for life in our communities
One of the main highlights of our pro-life efforts is our work to place ultrasound machines in pro-life pregnancy resource clinics. These lifesaving machines give pro-life workers a powerful tool for life and allow pregnant women to see the preborn baby growing inside them. We recently announced our plans to place 10 new machines in the next six months.
We stand for life in the halls of Congress
Our D.C. team works tirelessly to advocate for pro-life legislation, including the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Act, which would protect babies who are born alive as a result of a failed abortion. And as the spending process plays out in D.C., we’re continuously engaging policymakers to ensure no taxpayer dollars are used for abortions.
We stand for life in the Courts
While we long for the day that Roe v. Wade is overturned, our team is focused on protecting life through our legal system whenever possible. We filed an amicus brief with the Supreme Court earlier this year in June Medical Services v. Russo, urging justices to protect women from unsafe and dangerous abortion clinics. Our team also engaged in numerous other cases across the country involving funding for abortion clinics.
