The election will not change a thing

October 17, 2008

For those of you not living under a rock, you know that the U.S. is about to elect a new president on November 4th. Abortion has been a big issue in the campaign, but that leads us to worry that many Americans are viewing it as just that – an issue. Abortion is not just an issue, and its not just a talking point; its not just a way to score votes, and its not a way to raise money. Abortion is the intentional and violent ending of an innocent human person’s life, and we MUST remember that.

Rock for Life is not endorsing or supporting any candidate in the presidential election, but we can guarantee you one thing – regardless who wins, we will not change our mission or tactics. We will continue to activate pro-life youth, aid them in educating their peers, mobilize a devoted movement of passionate and life-affirming young people, and equip them with the tools and knowledge they need to permanently and positively affect their generation. Our goal is total personhood and equality for preborn human beings, and that remains unchanged.

With this, Rock for Life is issuing a call for pro-life organizations and individuals to make plans for massive pro-life visibility at the presidential inauguration on January 20th in Washington, D.C. The world’s media will be focused on Washington, D.C. that day, and we fully intend on showing the world that the pro-life advocates of America WILL NOT let presidential politics affect the direction of our movement. Our movement is growing, we are gaining ground, and we will continue to change hearts and minds. Rock for Life activists were a visible witness for life at the 2005 Inauguration, and held a protest at the White House to remind President Bush that pro-life activists would not remain complacent.

Let me know if you can make it or if you can support these efforts with your prayers or financial support. And make sure to leave your own thoughts here on the RFL blog.

Timberlake and Biel support abortion

October 15, 2008

Today I released this statement to the press:

Washington, D.C. (14 October 2008) – Rock for Life added former boy-band-heartthrob and hip-hop-celebrity Justin Timberlake to its boycott list Oct. 14. Timberlake and his girlfriend, actress Jessica Biel, defended abortion access at a rally in Las Vegas Oct. 11.

“Nobody should be able to say what you can do with your body,” Biel told cheering crowds at Last Chance for Change – a rally endorsing presidential candidate Sen. Barack Obama. “I give Jess the right to choose where we go to eat all the time,” Timberlake added.

“Timberlake and Biel’s defense of abortion is one of the most incoherent arguments I’ve ever heard,” said Erik Whittington, national director of Rock for Life, a project of American Life League. “I would expect that rationale from a child brainwashed by their abortion-advocating parents. No wonder most Americans ignore Hollywood politics.”

Rock for Life added Timberlake to the boycott list not only for this support for abortion, but also for the twisted logic used to justify his stance.

“What an outrageous excuse for advocating the slaughter of over 3,500 babies a day by abortion in the U.S. alone,” Whittington said. “Where you go to dinner is a legitimate choice, but abortion leaves no choice for your dead child.”

Rock for Life, a project of American Life League, is directed by Erik Whittington and works with hundreds of bands and thousands of pro-life youth who advocate for life using music to engage, educate and equip our culture.  “LIFE. Not for judgment, not for control, but for a better world.”

You can read about Justin and Jessica’s statements at the rally here and watch the YouTube clips here and here.

Let me know what you think.

Held on the first day of the Supreme Court’s new session, thousands of pro-lifers around the country will gather for “Pro-Life Memorial Day,” a national day of prayer, witness and remembrance.

Abortion is a national tragedy and deserves a national day of mourning.
