Together, we are calling on national religious and pro-life leaders to join us and encourage all like-minded people to participate in a national strike. Let’s send a powerful message to America that we must stop abortion now!
(Warning: the video embedded in the article I’m linking to, which is also on the Facebook page, contains a lot of images of abortion victims. You don’t need to watch the video to understand what the protest is about or how you can get involved. You also shouldn’t feel obligated to use victim imagery in your protest.)
ProtestABQ, Operation Rescue, Created Equal, and Survivors of the Abortion Holocaust are calling all pro-life Americans to join in a national strike and protest January 22-23. They cite the success of boycotts and strikes in movements such as the Civil Rights Movement and the Polish Solidarity Movement as a reason to believe that a strike like this will bring attention to the crisis of abortion — if we all stand together.
The plan is simple: on Thursday, January 22 and Friday, January 23,
- Don’t go to work or school
- Don’t spend money unnecessarily
- Do peacefully and prayerfully protest in your area or in Washington D.C. with the pro-lifers who gather for the March for Life.
I invite all my pro-life followers to join me in this. I will be at the March for Life in D.C., but you can do this wherever you are. Check out the Facebook page and talk to your local pro-life groups to find out if they’re organizing a protest and how you can get involved.
I’m not asking you to give up everything and devote your life to pro-life activism. All I ask is that you give up two days to call attention to the crisis of abortion on the anniversary of Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton.
This is our opportunity to show our country that pro-lifers are not a tiny, quiet minority.
Human beings JUST LIKE YOU are being slaughtered by the thousands all around you. The least you can do is join this effort to send a message that their lives matter and that you stand unapologetically in their defense. What legacy will you leave?
