The American Life League' (ALL) is an Catholic anti-abortion organization whose stated mission is "to serve God by helping to build a society that respects and protects innocent human life from fertilization to natural death - without compromise, without exception, without apology. The distinguishing mark of American Life League, by which we will be recognized, is our absolute commitment to the sacredness of human life."[1]

The American Life League was identified as the organization that distributed professionally-made signs that read, "Bury Obamacare with Kennedy" at a conservative rally in Washington, D.C. on September 12, 2009. [2][3] The sign referred to longtime Democratic Senator Ted Kennedy (D-Mass), who died from brain cancer on August 28, 2009, just two weeks before the September 12 rally.[4]

On June 7, 2008 (the anniversary of the 1965 Supreme Court Ruling Griswold v. Connecticut, which gave married couples the right to use contraception), ALL plans to kick off a national anti-contraception campaign called "The Pill Kills 2008," in which they will try to convince Americans that oral contraception "kills babies."[5]

ALL also opposes health insurance coverage of contraceptive medications.[6]
