Pro-life witnesses are under attack

Pro-life witnesses are under attack

American Life League always encourages peaceful demonstrations outside abortion clinics.  That's why we created a map to coordinate protests at Planned Parenthood locations.

But peaceful pro-lifers like you are under attack.  Governments are passing ordinances to push you away from abortion clinics, where your presence saves lives.

The Massachusetts governor is expected to sign a "buffer zone" expansion that pushes pro-lifers 35 feet away from clinic entrances and driveways.

On Tuesday, the Oakland, California, City Council will vote on a "bubble zone" ordinance that permits a one-year prison sentence and/or $2,000 fine for pro-lifers.  Under this ordinance, a pro-lifer is guilty if he comes within 8 feet of a person trying to enter the clinic.

The Oakland City Council is calling you "violent" and "aggressive."  But as our online protest video asks, who's harassing whom ?

If you live in Oakland or Massachusetts, please ask the government to reject these laws.  Contact information appears below.

Please forward this message to anyone you know in Oakland or Massachusetts.

These laws interfere with our right—and duty—to peacefully save the babies!

Sincerely yours in the Lord Who IS Life,

Judie Brown, President
