I think 'cancel culture' has become a loaded term, but I agree with what you're saying--the ACLU has definitely started becoming more of a left-wing advocacy group, then a free-speech organization, at least in terms of how they're represented in the media and the cases they take up. Still, it might be a a connection worth pursuing--they're a large group, and a suicide forum would be a classic free speech media issue. I'm sure there would be several lawyers interested in backing us up, if it came to that.Free speech is a nice idea, but it seems to have been a long time since any of the big groups like the ACLU in the US genuinely supported free speech.
Today, almost everybody wants to censor somebody. I don't pay much attention to what they are doing these days.
