{ In Brief }

Deborah has written numerous amicus briefs in the past few years, addressing some of the most critical issues of our time, including free speech, Ten Commandments monuments, cross-shaped war memorials, National Day of Prayer, legislative invocations, Obamacare, tuition tax credits, disclosures imposed on crisis pregnancy centers, the Second Amendment, campaign finance law, and immigration. Deborah's briefs have been submitted in landmark Supreme Court and federal appeals court cases.

Liberty, Life, and Law Foundation has addressed two of the watershed issues of our day since its founding — the defense of marriage and the Obamacare mandate that employer-provided health insurance offer free access to contraception and abortion-producing drugs.

In January 2013, LLLF joined the North Carolina Values Coalition to submit a brief to the United States Supreme Court in two cases considering the definition of marriage: Hollingsworth v. Perry, Docket No. 12-144 (California's Proposition 8, amending the state constitution; and United States v. Windsor, Docket No. 12-307 (2013) (federal Defense of Marriage Act). The brief explored the catastrophic implications for religious liberty — and other constitutional rights — if the Court decrees that marriage be redefined across the nation.

Since November 2012, LLLF has filed a number of briefs, in federal courts across the nation, supporting the many cases challenging Obamacare's contraception mandate. LLLF's brief is a direct rebuttal to "discrimination against women" arguments put forward by the ACLU.  The Becket Fund for Religious Liberty maintains a page with up-to-date details about these cases. LLLF has supported cases being litigated by the Becket Fund, American Center for Law and Justice, Alliance Defending Freedom, and other like-minded organizations. The issue is expected to eventually reach the U.S. Supreme Court.

{ Other Friends of the Court }

Many people today wonder if there are enough Christian attorneys. But just as God reassured Elijah that He had reserved 7,000 who hadn't bowed the knee to Baal, there is actually an "army" of Christian lawyers fighting the good fight in our courts. There is an amazing team working faithfully on the front lines as well as behind the scenes. Listed below are just a few of the many fine Christian organizations laboring to defend our liberties.
 

ADFAlliance Defending Freedom  |  Alliance Defending Freedom is a servant ministry building an alliance to keep the door open for the spread of the Gospel by transforming the legal system and advocating for religious liberty, the sanctity of life, and marriage and family. More than 30 prominent Christian leaders launched Alliance Defending Freedom in 1994. Since then, ADF has brought together thousands of Christian attorneys and like-minded organizations that work tirelessly to advocate for the right of people to freely live out their faith in America and around the world.
 

CLSChristian Legal Society  |  The mission of the Christian Legal Society is to inspire, encourage, and equip Christian lawyers and law students both individually and in community to proclaim, love and serve Jesus Christ through the study and practice of law, the provision of legal assistance to the poor and needy, and the defense of the inalienable rights to life and religious freedom.
 

ACLJAmerican Center for Law & Justice  |  The American Center for Law and Justice focuses on constitutional law and is specifically dedicated to the ideal that religious freedom and freedom of speech are inalienable, God-given rights. The Center's purpose is to educate, promulgate, conciliate, and where necessary, litigate, to ensure that those rights are protected under the law.
