Pro to the question "Is the ACLU Good for America?"

“The ACLU has been an essential champion of the First Amendment of the US Constitution, protecting the right of all Americans to freedom of religion and freedom from the state establishment of religion. As a journalist who has written about women’s reproductive health issues for many years, I have had a front row seat at how the ACLU has continually stepped up at pivotal points to protect a woman’s right to privacy, especially her right to control her own body and fertility, and to respond to the demands of her own conscience. With the pace of threats of women’s access to pregnancy termination and birth control services showing no signs of abating, the ACLU’s role in defending those rights is arguably more urgent than ever before.”
