Pro-lifers to rally in Montgomery Saturday

Pro-life Alabamians will rally at noon on Sat., April 1, on the Dexter stairs of the Alabama State Capitol to petition Gov. Bentley to end human abortion by implementing what they call Proposal 16 — which is the use of executive power to apply Alabama’s pro-life laws and defend the 16 human lives who are killed by abortion every day in the State of Alabama.

Proposal 16 is a draft Executive Order which would mobilize the Executive branch of government to protect right to life of every pre-born person   in Alabama. It’s also a grassroots movement asking the governor of Alabama to implement it. The movement began in late January.

“It’s the dawn of a new day in the pro-life movement,” said Samuel McLure, Birmingham attorney and the founder of Proposal 16. “With Proposal 16, pro-life Alabamians have found a tangible way to   act on their principles and ask their governor to act on this. Gov. Bentley can and should ensure that all human beings under his jurisdiction are given their God-given and Constitutional right to life and there’s no good reason for him to refuse.”

“We’re simply asking Gov. Bentley to turn his pro-life words into actions and lead the way forward,” McLure said.
