1. Stand up for God

My background, history and evidence are taken from the Holy Bible. Taken out of the Book of Jeremiah Chapter 18 starting with verse 18, going on to Chapter 27. I liken this Nation as Israel, being it was given the torch to carry the Word of God to the entirety of the world. This Nation was founded on Christianity, one Nation under One God. We have taken God out of our schools, courthouses and slowly our Country. Our law of freedom of religion has become freedom from God. This is bringing judgment upon our Nation. As Jeremiah, I weep to see our nation falling so far from the Almighty God that founded our Nation. Woe to you leaders and pastors who set idly by as millions are murdered by abortion. Woe to you who condone homosexuality, transgender and gay marriage and Woe to you who take the Name of God out of our public places, who remove the 10 commandments from our squares and prayer out of our children's schools. We allow the worship of other gods in the high places, it is time to remove the high places from our country. I am a Pastor that believes in the whole Bible. Not just parts I pick and choose to fit my lifestyle. Nor do I leave out parts that may offend someone or hurt someone's feelings. If we as leaders, pastors and Christians fail to warn others of the just judgment of God then we are the ones with blood on our hands. Stand up for God.

2. Help Women Understand the Ramifications of Abortion

Since the legalization of abortion after Roe v. Wade in 1973, approximately 1.5 billion abortions have occurred worldwide, and approximately 59 million of them were in the United States alone. Many of these women are making the decision to have an abortion with minimal knowledge about the ramifications of their decisions.

As many as 65% of women will suffer some symptoms of PTSD, 60% will experience suicidal thoughts, 28% will attempt suicide, and all post-abortive women increase their chance of physical complications, alcohol or drug abuse, eating disorders, repeat abortions, child abuse, and divorce.

Legislation requiring women be informed of the lifecycle of their child, the possible mental and physical health risks, a discussion with a family member or counselor, and a 24 hour waiting period can help stop unnecessary pain. Approximately 70% of abortions can be stopped with sonograms alone.

Change needs to happen.

3. An Amendment to Stop Judicial Activism

Judicial Legislation: An Oligarchy’s Infiltration of the Republic

“When…power is lodged in the hands of men independent of the people, and of their representatives, and who are not, constitutionally, accountable for their opinions, no way is left to control them but with a high hand and an outstretched arm.” In his Anti-Federalist Papers, New York judge Robert Yates prophesied the futility of preventing a body of unelected judges from usurping legislative power from the people and the state governments. After nearly 228 years, the United States has witnessed the fulfillment of Yates’ ominous oracle and the degradation of the Founders’ view of federalism. Through a careful examination of the judiciary’s originally enumerated authority, the transgressions of an ambitious collection of pseudo-legislators are revealed, ripe for amendment, so that constitutional equilibrium may be restored.

The Heritage Guide to the Constitution defines the “judicial Power” enumerated in Article III as, “neutrally deciding a case by interpreting the law and applying it to the facts, then rendering a final and binding judgment.” However, judges cannot simply attach their own opinion onto a decision which carries the force of law. In two landmark cases, Marbury v Madison and Cohens v Virginia, Chief Justice John Marshall stresses the duty of the judiciary to always interpret and apply the law in favor of the Constitution. “It is apparent,” he writes in Marbury, “that the framers of the constitution contemplated that instrument, as a rule for the government of the courts…Why otherwise does it direct the judges to take an oath to support it?” In Cohens, speaking to the power of the courts to nullify unconstitutional acts of Congress, Marshall notes that, “whenever a particular statute contravenes the constitution, it will be the duty of the judicial tribunals to adhere to the latter, and disregard the former.” Furthermore, he carefully explains, “It can be of no weight to say, that the courts…may substitute their own pleasure to the constitutional intentions of the legislature…The courts must declare the sense of the law; and if they should be disposed to exercise will instead of judgment, the consequence would equally be the substitution of their pleasure to that of the legislative body.” Prior precedent clearly prohibits judges from ruling contrarily to the “Supreme Law of the Land.” In checking unconstitutional actions of the legislature, the court may not use its authority to subvert the people’s will expressed in the Constitution.

Despite prior precedent that deplores a judge’s use of the bench as an assembly, judicial history is contaminated with blatant violations of Article I, Section I of the Constitution: “All legislative powers herein granted shall be vested in a Congress…” Ignoring original intent, the court has, at times, used its authority not to defend the Constitution, but to advance a political agenda. For example, in Griswold v Connecticut, the Supreme Court invented a “right to privacy,” which ultimately led to the legalization of sodomy and abortion. In the intentionally complex opinion, Justice William Douglas reflects the strategy of his partner, ACLU lawyer Melvin Wulf, who advocated for applying, “in a general sort of way,” principles of similar cases which should be “perhaps even extended a little bit” to fit the present case. In this way, justices, according to Yates, “mould the government into almost any shape they please.” Other examples of this practice contaminate the Supreme Court’s record. In Everson v Board of Education, the court misconstrued Jefferson’s “wall of separation” between church and state to ban “the free exercise of religion” from public places, though it did not cite precedent to justify the decision. Recently, in Natl. Fed. of Ind. Bus. v Sebelius five justices interpreted the word “penalty” to mean “tax,” thereby legalizing Obamacare and the intrusion of the federal government into the private sector. The most explicit example of judicial legislation is an infamous successor to Griswold, Roe v Wade, in which the Supreme Court struck down a Texas statute banning abortion. At the conclusion of his opinion, Justice Blackmun establishes specific criteria governing abortion in each trimester, essentially writing the abortion laws for an entire nation himself. From the due process clause, the controlling language in Roe, Blackmun and six other judges somehow extract detailed rules for conducting abortions and an unfounded excuse to murder innocent children. Roe and the aforementioned cases serve to demonstrate the subtle tyranny with which the judiciary controls the lives of US citizens and expose the unconstitutional subversion of legislative power from Congress. Such overreach must be stopped.

The Framers, aware of the lust with which men seek power, provided a remedy for unlawful confiscations of sovereignty—the amendment process, as found in Article V of the Constitution. Mark Levin, a nationally syndicated conservative radio host, in his book appropriately titled, The Liberty Amendments, proposes a pragmatic resolution to the judicial tyranny under which the people and their state governments have suffered. The amendment reads, “Upon three-fifths vote of the several state legislatures, the States may override a majority opinion rendered by the Supreme Court.” Under the present constitution, court decisions are unable to be remanded. As Yates warns, “No errors [judges] may commit can be corrected by any power above them…” Levin’s amendment would grant to the state legislatures the ability to check the judiciary and limit federal encroachment. Considering that, in Griswold, Everson, and Roe the Supreme Court struck down state statutes, a supermajority legislative override would restore the important balance of federalism between the national and state governments. Levin rightly observes that, “By adding the override, for the first time justices will know that their most significant majority opinions may not solely be judged by history, but by the people who must live under them…”

Influential philosopher and advocate for the separation of powers, Charles Secondat de Montesquieu, said that of the three powers—the legislature, executive, and judiciary—“the judiciary is next to nothing.” Certainly he and the Founders did not expect a branch, whose enumerated purpose is to neutrally interpret the law, to morph into a comprehensive source of power. John Adams famously explained that the American republic is “a government of laws, and not of men.” If this is true, then the Constitution should be the fountainhead of all derived authority, not an assembly of five unelected judges. The people are secure in their rights only when justices rule in favor of the “Supreme Law of the Land.” To maintain such security, a workable check must be installed to curb judicial legislation and eliminate the oligarchy which has infiltrated the republic.

4. Citizens against taxpayer funded abortions

The Hyde Amendment was passed in 1977 following the legalization of abortion. Its purpose to prevent persons and religious organizations from being forced to pay for abortions against their conscience, their religious beliefs, or moral beliefs.

Hillary Clinton would like to reverse this amendment and force taxpayers to provide free abortions on demand. She would also like to lift all time limits for abortions allowing an abortion to occur up to the day of birth. Abortion limits and prevention continues to be a fight for human rights. With so many opposed to this act against humanity itself, the notion of free funding with taxpayer money is absurd.

At over 300,000 abortions a year, it is also an undue and unjust burden placed on taxpayers struggling with their own household bills.

5. Pro-Life Ohio. Ban Abortion due to Down Syndrome.

Anti-abortion activists in Ohio want to stop women from getting abortions only because they do not wish to have a baby with Down syndrome, rallying around a bill endorsed by the National Right to Life Committee. Supporters argue that if you discriminate against the fetus because it has down syndrome is discriminating against a person.

The movement to end abortion due to down syndrome began in 2013 after North Dakota made it illegal to terminate a fetus with down syndrome. The president of the Ohio Right to Life, Mike Gonidakis and his organization created the bill titled House Bill 135. The reason for the creation of the bill is that down syndrome is very noticeable and news of a fetus with down syndrome could lead to early termination. “Roughly 60% to 90% of women who get a prenatal diagnosis of Down syndrome will choose to terminate their pregnancy” (“State Facts About Abortion”).

The Ohio Right to Life group and other pro-life organizations know that nobody is perfect and that everyone deserves a right to life. They see the bill not just as an abortion bill to as an anti discrimination bill.

6. Canadian Re-Affirmation of the Right to Life

We, the undersigned, recognizing, embracing and upholding the historic Judaeo-Christian philosophies and moral principles of the supremacy of God, knowing that He alone is the giver of life, and that He holds the creation of life as sacred and precious as expressed throughout the gospel and upheld in the Queens own coronation oath; do condemn and renounce the recent judgments of the Supreme Court of Canada that have led to the devaluing of human life within Canadian society and the recent murder of an Alberta woman by two doctors and call for an immediate cessation to all so called “Right to Die or Physician Assisted Suicides, ” procedures and practices.

Therefore - with all urgency in order to save and protect lives - we the undersigned do call upon all Canadians everywhere to re-affirm and affirm the right of all Canadians and indeed all persons - to life and to condemn any practice or procedure that leads to the untimely and unnatural death of another.

We, the undersigned also recognize that because of the depravity of society and the ideological “cults of death” that have developed globally through out governments everywhere and also through the spread of terrorism, that society, by time, necessitates the taking of life through the act of war or policing to ensure the safety and protection of other lives - do (with that being stated) still re-affirm and affirm with all passion and conviction the right of all - to life.

7. Don't scrap Act protecting pregnant women and babies in the UK

Without consulting its members, the Royal College of Midwives (RCM) is supporting a campaign recently launched by BPAS to totally remove abortion from criminal law.

At present, there are 180,000 legal abortions a year in the UK. BPAS is now calling for ‘the Victorian-era legislation that criminalizes abortion to be scrapped’ (see RCM’s website at That is, they are calling for abortions which are at present illegal to be made legal.

If this law is scrapped, it is not clear how people traffickers, violent partners, those who sell abortion pills online and anyone else who either coerces a woman into an illegal abortion or convinces her to take harmful illegally-produced drugs while she is in a vulnerable state can be prosecuted.

8. Do Not Allow a Vote on Merrick Garland

With the passing of pro-life Justice Antonin Scalia, political discussion has turned to his replacement. Thankfully, Justice Scalia was one of the minority of justices who disagree with Roe v. Wade and its 43 years of virtually unlimited abortions.

Unfortunately, President Barack Obama is looking to pack the Supreme Court with another pro-abortion extremist who will keep abortion on demand in place for another 43 years. He has nominated liberal appeals court judge Merrick Garland, who would be another reliable pro-abortion vote.

The Senate must not hold a vote on garland's nomination, but instead should wait until a new president takes office. That allows the American people to select a new president and determine the course they want the Supreme Court to take on abortion.

We call on Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to not schedule any vote on Garland's nomination. Such a promise prevents Obama from selecting a third pro-abortion Supreme Court justice to follow Sonia Sotomayor and Elana Kagan, both of whom are thoroughly committed to unlimited abortions and upholding Roe v. Wade.

9. I Pledge to Vote for Pro-Life Candidates Who Uphold the 8th Amendment

A general election has been called in Ireland and the vote will be held on 26th February, 2016. In advance of polling day, the various politicians are setting out their position in relation to the abortion issue and specifically on where they stand on the retention or repeal of the 8th Amendment to the Irish Constitution, which provides the last remaining constitutional protection for unborn babies in Irish law.

As signers of this pledge, we are letting the candidates know that we are strongly pro-life and strong oppose the repeal of the 8th Amendment. (For more information about which candidates support the 8th amendment, click here).

10. Drop the Charges Against David Daleiden and Charge Planned Parenthood

A Texas grand jury has ignored the videos exposing a Houston-based Planned Parenthood abortion clinic caught selling aborted baby body parts and has instead indicted the man behind producing the expose’ videos.

The video of the Houston Planned Parenthood makes it appear the Planned Parenthood abortion business may be selling the “fully intact” bodies of unborn babies purposefully born alive and left to die. The video shows the Director of Research for Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast, Melissa Farrell, advertising the Texas Planned Parenthood branch’s track record of fetal tissue sales, including its ability to deliver fully intact aborted babies.

In the video, actors posing as representatives from a human biologics company meet with Farrell at the abortion-clinic headquarters of Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast in Houston to discuss a potential partnership to harvest fetal organs.

Instead of prosecuting Planned Parenthood for selling aborted baby parts, Daleiden was indicted for buying them. If convicted, Daleiden faces 20 years in prison while Planned Parenthood officials face no legal consequences for their actions.

Harris County District Attorney Devon Anderson promised a thorough investigation of the Planned Parenthood abortion business. But a Planned Parenthood board member works as a prosecutor in the district attorney’s office.

11. Boycott the TV show "Scandal"

Scandal recently promoted abortion and the illegal company, Planned Parenthood, in the season finale.

In this show, the lead character's child is killed as the hymn "Silent Night" plays in the background. After the abortion of her pregnancy, she goes home and stares at her Christmas tree looking satisfied and happy, while sipping on a glass of wine. The show promoted Planned Parenthood, the largest abortion provider in America which has also been caught in many illegal scandals such as ILLEGAL partial-birth abortions, assisting sex traffickers, and selling bodies and body parts of aborted children, to name a VERY few.

If you watch another second of Scandal, you are asking for more of this to be shown and promoted. You vote with your views and your clicks, even if you skip past the racy parts. Oppositely, if you refuse to watch shows with these messages being shown to youth and adults, you are taking a stand and saying, "Enough is enough!"

Show ABC you will not stand for this and will not support them by watching Scandal.

Please sign this petition.

12. Congress, Defund Planned Parenthood AND Fund Alternatives!

In recent months, multiple videos have come out exposing Planned Parenthood and its activities concerning what it does with marketing and selling baby body parts.

I know that many petitions have been set up to defund Planned Parenthood, to investigate it, or to prosecute it. Defunding Planned Parenthood, alone, will not end abortion.

Abortion is said to constitute three percent of what Planned Parenthood does, but we know that three percent consists of roughly 300,000 abortions done yearly ( An estimated $542 million of federal funds went to Planned Parenthood in fiscal year 2011-2012 (

It is unlikely that this figure has changed since then. In seeing a graphic photo of an actual first-trimester abortion at, I cannot stand with an institution where this takes place, even at only 3 percent of their services. It is because Planned Parenthood provides so many services for poor women in their childbearing years, that we should call on government to make abortion rare by funding services for women throughout all their childbearing years, not only in pregnancy. Of course, legislators need to defund Planned Parenthood to release funds. Maybe they can obtain additional funds from other sources.

What is needed is for federal funds to be re-directed to life-affiirming women's services. This has been done in Wisconsin; not only were funds taken from Planned Parenthood, but they were re-directed to other, life-affirming services

Such services would include:

1). Increased Medicaid re-imbursements to obstetrition-gynecologists so they will be more willing to accept Medicaid and serve poor women, providing them with all the services (minus abortion) they would receive at Planned Parenthood. This includes all women in their childbearing years, not just when they are pregnant;

2). More government funds for women's medical services where abortions are not done. This includes 13,000 community clinics which deliver quality care to women and families (Source: Casey Mattox). These services would include all women in their childbearing years, not just when they are pregnant;

3). Offer subsidies for poor single parents and families to spend more time with their children so that people won't feel pressured to abort for economic reasons;

4). Create legislation where those facing unplanned pregnancies can place their children in two-year foster care until they are in a position to raise their children. This will open up another option to them;

No, this would not end all abortions by any means, but it should be a good step in the right direction. We want to show that we care for all women, not only when they are pregnant.

We want to show that we care for unborn children, and want to protect them and save as many as possible. That can only be done as we do all we can to provide women with all the love, encouragement, guidance, and resources they need so they can choose life for their babies and will not feel that abortion is the only option.

Abortion affects men also which is why gender-neutral terms are used in this petitioning legislators. It's called being prolife about all lives.

In other words, as it has been said, let's love both women and children and men.

13. Defund All Abortion Facilities

The Center for Medical Progress has documented the illegal activities of Planned Parenthood who are selling the body parts of aborted children to research companies for profit.

The videos can be viewed here

The callous and disrespectful way that the Planned Parenthood executives discuss the methods they use to obtain the most number of sellable “human tissue” body parts is worse than recorded discussion during the Nazi Nuremberg trials.

Dozens of organizations around Ohio have written a letter (see below) to Governor Kasich to remove all tax payer funding from Planned Parenthood as well as all medical facilities who perform abortions. Please add your name to the letter, noting your zip code. You could also indicate the name of your church or parish as a means of identification

14. End Taypayer Funded Abortions at Planned Parenthood

End Taypayer Funded Abortions at Planned Parenthood.

15. Governor Rauner: Defund Planned Parenthood Now!

It is time to Defund Planned Parenthood. Not one dime of taxpayer money should be going to fund abortions and the sale of baby parts. Join us as we tell Governor Rauner and our elected officials that the time to Defund Planned Parenthood is now!

Please sign this petition and then go to this website to contact all of your representatives to ask them to Defund Planned Parenthood. All you have to do is put in your zip code and street address and you can message all your representatives at once.

16. End government funding of Planned Parenthood

End government funding of Planned Parenthood, an organization that has been caught aiding and abetting sex traffickers, covering up sexual abuse, taking money to abort African American babies, and the selling of aborted baby parts.

17. Sop Abortion, Stop the Killings

Abortion is murder. Abortion is legalized murder.

18. Defund Planned Parenthood NOW

Planned Parenthood's callous and disgusting practices are being exposed by the Center for Medical Progress's exposure of their illegal practice of selling aborted babies to medical research companies for profit.

The first video showed one of the top doctors, describing over a business lunch how she uses the illegal partial-birth abortion method to manipulate the preborn child so he or she comes out whole, crushing other parts of the baby's body that are estimated to be less valuable. And subsequent videos continue to provide ample evidence of the disregard this organization has for human life - of both mother and child!

This is an appalling and barbaric practice exposes the inconceivable horror that is Planned Parenthood.

Federal law prohibits the sale of body parts of aborted babies. In fact, the sale or purchase of human fetal tissue is a federal felony punishable by up to 10 years in prison and a fine of up to $500,000 (42 U.S.C. 289g-2).

19. Starbucks Should Stop Matching Financial Donations to Planned Parenthood

Undoubtedly, more videos are soon to be released. However, at the moment, we have three videos graphically detailing the illegal activities of Planned Parenthood.

Particularly, these videos showcase how the company will (illegally) perform an abortion in a such a way that the aborted fetus's body is more or less "fully intact". When an abortion results in a more fully intact body, it provides an incentive for PP to gain a financial profit from various procurement companies that will purchase the body at high costs.

Beyond merely ethical concerns, these recent revelations make it clear that the abortion industry has been making a profit in the trafficking of aborted fetuses. In the eyes of many Americas, this is immoral.

As Americans - a nation that recently declared all citizens equal in the eyes of the law in regards to marriage - we believe a double standard exists. How can one support marriage equality, but ignore the fact that a federally-funded organization has been selling the body parts of dead children?

We petition American citizens to rethink this hypocrisy. Also, we speak specifically to partners at Starbucks. While Starbucks doesn't directly support PP, they do match donations made to a variety of companies - including PP. We believe a socially-progressive company such as this one need not support PP and its activities.

20. We Oppose Louisville Government Funneling Taxpayer Dollars to Planned Parenthood

Attention: Louisville Metro Citizens!

On July 14, 2015, the Center for Medical Progress began releasing video footage showing a senior level Planned Parenthood medical director describing crushing and aborting babies in ways to preserve and sell body parts and tissue for maximum profit.

Planned Parenthood is the nation's largest abortion provider with clinics and affiliates in every state, including Kentucky.

KRLA has called for an investigation of our regional PP organization.


21. Investigate Planned Parenthood NOW!

As has been widely reported, a recent undercover investigation by the Center for Medical Progress revealed what appears to be an organization-wide practice by Planned Parenthood of trafficking in fetal baby body parts obtained from abortions.

Nevada Planned Parenthood affiliates perform abortions. Planned Parenthood receives local, state and federal money. While it is currently unclear which, if any, affiliates have participated in the sale or distribution of body parts, many states and the US Congress have launched investigations into the ethics and legality of this practice in their jurisdictions.

As such, we respectfully request Governor Brian Sandoval initiate a full investigation into the practices of all Nevada affiliates of Planned Parenthood, as well as stand-alone abortion providers in the state.

22. Congress Must Investigate Planned Parenthood for Selling Aborted Baby Parts

A shocking new expose’ video has caught Planned Parenthood’s top doctor describing how the abortion business sells the body parts of aborted babies.

New undercover footage shows Planned Parenthood Federation of America’s Senior Director of Medical Services, Dr. Deborah Nucatola, describing how Planned Parenthood sells the body parts of aborted unborn children and admitting she uses partial-birth abortions to supply intact body parts.

Federal law prohibits the sale of body parts of aborted babies. In fact, the sale or purchase of human fetal tissue a federal felony punishable by up to 10 years in prison and a fine of up to $500,000 (42 U.S.C. 289g-2).

23. Stand With New Mexicans: Free the Late Term Abortion Ban

New Mexico needs your help to urge National Republican Leaders in Congress to re-introduce a Late-Term Abortion Ban.

Albuquerque, NM is the Late-Term Abortion Capital of Nation. In New Mexico there are zero common sense laws protecting women and children from abortion, in fact abortion is legal through ALL NINE MONTHS of pregnancy. The nation's largest Late-Term abortion clinic is located in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

You can help end Late-Term Abortion in the Late-Term Abortion Capital of America...and all across the nation. We need your help today!

Join national pro-life voices in calling for House Speaker John Boehner and the Republican leaders to reschedule a vote to ban all abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy. Bud Shaver, Executive Director of Protest ABQ is going to Washington D.C on May 7th 2015 to join several National Pro-Life groups and to hand deliver your signature to House Speaker Boehner, thank you for standing with us.

Sign the petition and let your voice be heard, together we can Ban Late-Term Abortion Nationally.

24. We Oppose Hillary Clinton!

Abortion activist Hillary Clinton has announced her bid for the Democratic party nomination for president.

For the pro-life movement and the protection of unborn children from abortion, we MUST replace pro-abortion President Barack Obama with a pro-life president. It would be a monumental loss for unborn babies if Hillary Clinton becomes president.

If she is elected president, Hillary Clinton will continue to advance abortion at every turn. A President Hillary Clinton for four or even eight years in the White House will keep abortion legal for decades as she will stack the Supreme Court with pro-abortion extremists.

Hillary Clinton will force Americans to pay for abortions with our tax dollars, she will push abortion on an international scale, and a Clinton administration would continue pushing abortion in Obamacare and forcing companies like Hobby Lobby to pay for abortions for their employees.

Because of this, we strongly oppose Hillary Clinton!

25. Oppose Loretta Lynch for Attorney General

The Senate will vote soon on the nomination of pro-abortion Loretta Lynch to become our next Attorney General. Projections indicate the vote could be very close.

Loretta Lynch is the nominee to replace pro-abortion Attorney General Eric Holder. Holder, who is pro-abortion and who used his post in the Obama administration to target pro-life people, announced in September he would step down from his position when a replacement has been confirmed.

During her confirmation hearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee, Lynch admitted to pro-life Senator Lindsey Graham of South Carolina that she once signed onto a brief the Planned Parenthood abortion business submitted in its legal battle to overturn the Congressional ban on partial-birth abortions. The Supreme Court eventually sided against Planned Parenthood and upheld the ban on the gruesome abortion procedure.

We, the undersigned, OPPOSE Loretta Lynch's nomination to become Attorney General. We do not need an abortion activist replacing Eric Holder.

After you have signed, PLEASE share on Facebook and tweet on Twitter!

26. Allow Women Healthcare After Being Attacked

In March of 2014, a law has become effective in Michigan that has banned insurance coverage for abortions in private health plans unless the client purchases a separate rider.

According to the Guttmacher Institute, eight states have passed laws similar to this but only two have made these separate riders available. This also increases the cost of an abortion, which now ranges anywhere between $300-$10,000.

These laws send a message to any victim that it is essentially their fault - that they should have anticipated their attack and its aftermath.

27. HGTV: Stop Discriminating Against Pro-Life Christians

HGTV has canceled a new reality television show, Flip It Forward, that was scheduled to debut on Home and Garden Television this October, after learning the stars of the show are pro-life. During the program, brothers David and Jason Benham would be helping families purchase dream homes they otherwise couldn’t afford.


Home and Garden Television has decided to cancel the show after pro-abortion activists outed the brothers as pro-life. The pro-abortion group People for the American Way tagged the brothers as “anti-choice” extremists in an article on their web site and includes comments one of the brothers made about God abhorring abortion.

The network confirmed it was dropping the show, saying on its Facebook page: “HGTV has decided not to move forward with the Benham Brothers’ series.”

28. Ban Pro-Abort Politicians from Communion

The petition below is in support of 52 Pro-Life Leaders who recently submitted a Declaration to the Bishops of the Catholic Church. The petition is the same as the Declaration submitted, except the words "Pro-Life Leaders", has been changed to "the Catholic Laity, Priests, and Religious".

The report on the story and the Declaration can be read here:

52 pro-life leaders worldwide call on bishops to deny Communion to pro-abortion politicians.

Please also consider signing these similar petitions:

1) To retract the treacherous Winnipeg Statement.

2) To bring out the Eucharist at the March for Life (Canada).

29. We Support Hobby Lobby

The Supreme Court has set the date for oral arguments for Hobby Lobby’s challenge to the Obama HHS mandate.

The nation’s highest court will hear debate from attorneys representing the Christian owned business and the Obama administration on Tuesday, March 25 at 10 a.m.

The Obama administration is attempting to make it comply with the HHS mandate that compels religious companies to pay for birth control and abortion-causing drugs for their employees.

Sponsored by, this petition supports Hobby Lobby and other companies and organizations who have sued to overturn the mandate.

30. Support Amendment 1 to Tennessee's Constitution

The Tennessee Supreme Court has made Tennessee an abortion destination. A decision in 2000 deemed access to abortions more sacred to Tennessee's Constitution than to the U.S. Constitution.

The result is that the 132 people elected to our state legislature take a back seat to Tennessee's 5 justices in terms of abortion regulation. We can change that by approving Amendment 1 in November.
