As several pro-life activists languish in jail awaiting trial for peacefully rescuing babies, presidential hopeful Donald Trump must commit to pardoning these heroes, de-federalizing the prosecution of pro-lifers and firing those responsible for this state-sponsored persecution. 

SIGN: Tell Trump to restore justice to unfairly arrested pro-lifers.

Arrested for violating the Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances (FACE) Act by protesting in front of abortion clinics, the activists' trials are set for May 14 and 15 in Washington and July 2 in Tennessee

The pro-life movement must stand up for these innocent citizens who were only trying to protect the vulnerable unborn. As it is election year, we are sending Donald Trump a petition to seek his commitment to support us in this undertaking. 

The requests are as follows: 

  1. Grant a full pardon of all charges and convictions of the arrested pro-lifers, which will immediately release them and protect them from any attached penalties. 

  1. Pledge to de-federalize prosecution of pro-life rescuers. 

  1. Never allow any DOJ and FBI employee who had anything to do with pro-life persecutions to hold a job in Federal Law Enforcement again, including agents who conducted raids by “obeying orders” and thus showing themselves unfit to wield such power. 

SIGN: Tell Trump to commit fully to the pro-life movement.

In the 1990s, Hillary Clinton and Janet Reno federalized prosecution of pro-life rescuers.

Federal (as opposed to local) prosecution almost guarantees conviction, threatens many more years of imprisonment, and guarantees governmental control of the activities of those arrested following release from prison, including monstrous fines and a great deal of probation and parole. 

SIGN: Tell Trump to commit fully to the pro-life movement.

As Jonathan Darnel and John Hinshaw noted in a joint letter, “Those of us awaiting sentencing in the upcoming months...fully expect our frothing prosecutors to demand these additional punishments, and our enabling, corrupt judge has not denied them yet.” 

While Trump has publicly promised to pardon these pro-life prisoners, we must ask him to eliminate the prospect of other rescuers facing a similar fate in the future.

SIGN: Tell Trump to restore justice to unfairly arrested pro-lifers.
