ACLJ Files Federal Lawsuit after National Park Service Revoked Permit to Display Pro-Life Signs in Washington, D.C.: "The American Center for Law and Justice, which specializes in constitutional law, today filed suit against the Secretary of the Interior and the National Park Service after the government revoked a permit issued to pro-life organizations to display pro-life signs in Washington, D.C. this upcoming weekend—to counter the pro-abortion message expected to be delivered at the upcoming March for Freedom of Choice.

"'The National Park Service maintains the sidewalks along the National Mall but it does not own them, and it cannot, barring exceptional circumstances, deny to citizens the right to use them for the purpose of expressing their views on important issues of the day,' said James M. Henderson, Sr., ACLJ Senior Counsel, who filed the suit this morning.

The ACLJ today filed suit in U.S. District Court in Washington, D.C. on behalf of the Reverend Patrick Mahoney and his pro-life organization the Christian Defense Coalition along with Brandi Swindell who heads up Generation Life—an Idaho-based organization of young Christian, pro-life activists."
