Statement: ACLU on passing of U.S. Sen. Frank Lautenberg

The American Civil Liberties Union released this statement following the death of U.S. Sen Frank Lautenberg

"Our country lost a true civil liberties titan today," said Laura W. Murphy, director of the ACLU Washington Legislative Office. "From his service during World War II to his final months in the Senate, Sen. Lautenberg understood the importance of fighting for the rights of every American. He was a champion for religious liberty and leaves behind a legacy of fighting for women's rights and reproductive freedom. We will sorely miss his voice and passion."
