Defending Human Life

Years ago, Mat Staver believed abortion was acceptable…

From the founding of Liberty Counsel in 1989, we have been unshakably dedicated to protecting and defending human life, from the moment of conception until natural death.

Liberty Counsel has filed numerous briefs to protect the unborn and to show the inherent value in human life. The first case Mat Staver argued before the United States Supreme Court in 1994 was in defense of pro-life sidewalk counselors.

We provide a pro-life website, LifeUnited, a collaboration of 8 single-minded but unique groups united to end abortion in America. With diligent effort and God’s help, we will see an end to abortion on demand in our lifetime.

Change starts with education, which are then reflected in laws that recognize the value of each person, no matter how small, powerless, poor, or old.

Join with us in the epic struggle for the unalienable right to life.
