Display:

The EFC applies biblical principles to life in society, including law and public policy. We show how laws that reflect these principles – such as the sanctity of human life, care for the vulnerable and religious freedom – contribute to the public good.

(See also Outgoing Letters to legislators and cabinet ministers, and Court Cases for legal submissions.)
