Alliance Defending Freedom

Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF) is a conservative Christian legal interest group that bills itself as “fighting for the liberties that we hold dear.” These liberties do not extend to reproductive freedom: ADF has litigated for anti-abortion crisis pregnancy centers and against the Affordable Care Act’s (ACA) birth control mandate, and has represented clinic protestors. The group has also worked with the Trump administration to defund Planned Parenthood. ADF is a Southern Poverty Law Center designated hate group largely due to its ardent anti-LGBTQ positions such as linking homosexuality to pedophilia.
