WASHINGTON, Nov. 4 /Christian Newswire/ -- Group will launch "The Birmingham Letter Project" in Washington, D.C. on January 21-24, 2009. (See Thebirminghamletterproject.com)
The focus of the project will be to mobilize a public, prayerful and prophetic witness for life to challenge the radical pro-abortion policies of President-elect Barack Obama.
"The Birmingham Letter Project," will be using the principles taught by Dr. Martin Luther King in his "Letter from a Birmingham Jail" and the teachings of Scripture to unleash and empower the pro-life community to publicly stand against the horrific violence of abortion.
President-elect Obama will be the most radical pro-abortion President in the history of our nation.
The group will be discussing their plans at a news conference on Thursday, November 6, at 11:00 A.M.
The location of the news conference will be in front of the White House on Pennsylvania Ave. in front of Lafayette Park.
Rev. Patrick J. Mahoney, Director of the Christian Defense Coalition, states, "Sadly, America has elected the most pro-abortion President in America history. It is clear that Mr. Obama will continue the tragic violence against our nation's women and children which has resulted in over 50,000,000 abortions.
"'The Birmingham Letter Project' is about empowering and unleashing the pro-life community to stand against this injustice just as civil rights workers stood against the injustice of segregation, violence and racism a generation ago.
"We are taking to heart the admonition of Dr. King when he said from a Birmingham jail, 'Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere,' and will passionately devote ourselves toward bringing this war on America's children to an end.
"With Barack Obama as President, it is clear there will be no immediate end to abortion through the courts or legislation. Therefore, just as it was during the civil rights movement, it is up to the faith community and people of good will to go to the streets and work diligently to end this war on America's children.
"We will be coming to Washington, D.C., as President-elect Obama is sworn in, to boldly stand as public and prophetic witness for life. As the pro-life community, we will not go silently into the night and allow the violence to continue. Instead, we are issuing this national call for the pro-life community to come to the streets of our nation's capital and be a prayerful voice for those who have no voice.
"Our message is clear. Now is the time. We are the people. The killing must end."
