With all the news about a Trump and Putin summit, there might have been a few articles that escaped your attention over the past week that have to do with Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF), religious freedom, marriage and the family, or the sanctity of life. Don’t worry, though, the Alliance Alert team has you covered! Here are some of the highlights from the last week:

Sanctity of Life

National Review: Is the Constitution Pro-Life? And What Would That Mean?

Does the Constitution ban abortion? Ramesh Ponnuru makes the argument that it does, and he hopes that, should Roe be reversed by the Supreme Court, Congress would follow up with strong enforcement on behalf of the unborn.
