Every human life is sacred, and the lifelong union of a man and woman in marriage protects life by giving children the value of a devoted mother and father. This benefits society in ways no other relationship can. At the heart of this is religious freedom which respects our natural rights as human beings. A good and thriving culture upholds religious freedom, free speech, the value of life, the natural family, and parental rights. When one of these fundamental freedoms is diminished, society declines. By defending and protecting these key areas, Alliance Defending Freedom seeks to strengthen our world and ensure your ability to freely live out your faith.
