This year, The Teenage Life Club has decided to host a 2012 Pro-Life Letter Campaign. Our goal is to send 1 million letters to the White House and the Supreme Court, voicing the pro-life opinions of our nation. It is crucial to send the letters and make an impact at this time, especially as elections are not too far off.
The purpose of The 2012 Pro-Life Letter Campaign is to open up an opportunity for people who are pro-life toexpress their opinions on the matter of abortion and to make an impact in the constant fight for life.
We are asking people to send letters to the White House and to the Supreme Court.
The White House
1600 Pennsylvania Ave NW, Washington, DC 20502
The Supreme Court
East Capitol Street, NE and 1st Street NE
Washington, DC 20002
People of any age can send letters. Adults and teens can write actual letters, while children are welcome to draw pictures and write a few phrases like “life,” “save the babies,” etc.
If you are not sure what to write in a letter, here are three general ideas that may help you start out:
Abortion violates the Fourteenth Amendment, of which the second half clearly states: “nor shall any state deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.”
Abortion is murder, and it kills over 1 million babies every year in the United States alone.
I am speaking on behalf of those who have not had the chance to speak for themselves, and I will not stop until unborn babies have their equal share of rights.
After sending a letter to the White House or to the Supreme Court, please contact us so that we can know how many letters were sent. email@example.com
