Because freedom can't protect itself
I do not see where you made it possible for my parents to walk on the Nazi sidewalks of their Nazi Los Angeles neighborhood for 27 years. My parents were allowed to walk on the Nazi sidewalks of Nazi Germany before they were deported to the death camps.
All you do is suck money.
This blog post shows how the ACLU shamelessly ignores Rights of men "to enjoy full and informed control over their reproductive lives ... or to raise the children they have. "
State legislatures are increasingly restricting the rights of fathers to information regarding their reproductive lives, including their rights to access DNA paternity testing.
Furthermore, by ignoring fathers and referring to children as something that mothers "have", the ACLU continues to promote the shameful idea that children are property - possessions belonging to their mothers.
Furthermore, with the lower rates of children born to wedded parents in disadvantaged communities, the ACLU is doing a special disservice to fathers in disadvantaged groups, who are statistically more likely to be given less access to their children or treated unfairly in other ways. For example, in Michigan, African American fathers are only 3/5ths as likely as White Non-Hispanic fathers to receive a recommendation for sole father or joint custody, and they are more likely to have lower incomes subject to historical illegal automatic income imputation.
I urge the ACLU to rethink its non-position on the rights of fathers, and stand up for the rights of all parents "to enjoy full and informed control over their reproductive lives .. or to raise the children they have."
