1. 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.

2. STOP Funding Give-Aways of Our Citizenship Rights

It is a great, special, privilege to lawfully reside or visit the United States of America. It is not a give away, and not a privilege "for the taking". We are nice and grateful for what we have in this country of ours, but we are not to be taken advantage of.

This so-called Executive Order announced on Nov. 20, 2014 circumventing the U.S. 113th Congress is not "Executive", but is "Legislative" in character, for it grants work permits to the favored trespassers, and is therefore a fraud and an insult to every U.S. citizen.

Republicans in the House of Representatives (now in the majority) must be stopped NOW from funding this so-called Executive order at anytime. It ignores the deportation of trespassing illegal aliens in the millions, and ignores current Federal law ordering the U.S. President to seal the porous borders (especially the 2000 mile long, bordering Mexico) and to prevent further illegal crossings from occurring.

This, in-effect legislative order allows unconstitutional privileges for illegal aliens who are CONTINUOUSLY trespassing on our U.S. soil, privileges bought with the blood or effort of our nation's heroes, privileges heretofore reserved solely for U.S. citizens.

The U.S. President's main role, and the great powers entrusted to him (temporarily) are explicitly for the protection of our national security, a job description he once accepted, but an essential role he has decided out of arrogance to ignore.

The President's legislative order must be kept unfunded entirely, at all costs. Congress defaulted already in the same President's previous "Dream Act" legislative order (also indecently called an Executive Order), and Congress therefore signaled it is okay for the President to by-pass Congress. It is not okay; for it makes our expensive, in-debt Congress in-effect a waste of money.

Note: If ALL our laws are not enforced, it is ridiculous to have passed laws, or pass new laws. And if our laws are not enforced, of what use is the judicial branch of government? Therefore, a President's Legislative Order does away with the power of Congress, and circumvents the judicial system. It is due time now for Presidents to be held accountable, and only conscientious voters can get that done through the power of their single vote, and spreading the word.

There is only one way now: by vowing to abstain from voting in the 2016 election! For, Republicans cannot win elections without the Conservative Republicans. Let's clean House, first (no pun intended.)

It is our prerogative, and it is our right to abstain from voting nationally in 2016. So, I hereby vow.






3. Tell the Smithsonian to Stop Censoring Gay Artists

On Nov. 30, 2010, the Smithsonian Institution (USA) removed "A Fire in My Belly," a work of video art by gay artist David Wojnarowicz from the National Portrait Gallery, caving in to a 2-day pressure campaign by anti-gay groups and politicians, who threatened the institution's public funding. (Watch censored video here.)

Ironically, the work was part of an exhibit highlighting the marginalization of gay people, called "Hide/Seek," the first such exhibit in a public museum in the United States. (See for more information.)

Museum Officials Caved In to False Charges, Censored Work

The "objectionable" content was 11 seconds of a 4-minute video; the brief imagery within the larger work consisted of a crucifix crawling with ants, an image of the late artist's feelings of abandonment and isolation as he was dying of AIDS in 1980s America.

Anti-gay forces knowingly mischaracterized the work as "an obvious attempt to offend Christians during the Christmas season," even though the exhibit opened in October 2010 and is scheduled to run through February 2011.

Protesters Banned From Museum

When free-speech protesters attempted to restore the art to the museum, they were SILENCED, DETAINED, and BANNED from all Smithsonian facilities. (Watch the protest video here, and read the news coverage here and here.)

Smithsonian Continues Long Tradition of Silencing Gay Americans

Just as gay- and AIDS-related art was censored by the U.S. government in the 1980s, it's still happening today. AND WE REFUSE TO BE MADE INVISIBLE AGAIN.

Tell the Smithsonian -- which is part of the U.S. government -- that there is room in America for ALL people and ALL points of view.

Tell the Smithsonian to stop censoring art!
