I received an e-mail yesterday urging GFL to get the word out about the following protest. Clearly aware of the pro-abortion position of the National Education Association (NEA), I was more than happy to post about this event. If you canâ€™t protest the event or at your own state capital, at the very least, I think itâ€™s important to be aware of the position of the NEA.
“Pro-Life teachers, parents, and students are mobilizing to peaceably and prayerfully picket the National Education Association’s meeting at the Pennsylvania Convention Center on Sunday, July 1 from 1:00 to 3:00 PM,” announces Bob Pawson, Coordinator of Pro-Life Educators And Students (PLEAS). “It is vital to focus nationwide attention on the pro-abortion activism of this powerful union’s leaders – a union which is supposedly dedicated to protecting children, as well as teachers’ jobs. Twenty-five abortions equal one lost classroom, one lost teaching career, and a catastrophic loss to America’s future.” Pro-Lifers across America are urged to picket NEA affiliates in state capitals on Monday, July 2, 11AMâ€“1PM to maximize public awareness and media coverage. Any pro-abortion counter-picketers will generate greater public and media attention. About 10,000 teachers-delegates from all fifty states will attend the NEA Convention. “We are taking to task the leadership of America’s largest and most socio-politically meddlesome union, for essentially misrepresenting many teachers on the abortion issue. We teachers and school employees love children. It’s insane for our union’s leadership to condone, much less promote, the killing of babies in their mothers’ wombs. In addition to the moral outrage, it’s economic suicide. We resent having our dues monies and good names used to misrepresent us on moral, social or political issues. NEA must abandon its ‘Family Planning’ Resolution I-13 and other policies, out of respect for the diversity of 3.2 million members,” said Pawson
