PRO-LIFERS MAKE IMPACT AT NEA TEACHER CONVENTION

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE 7/01/07

Seventy-five pro-life teachers, parents and children successfully picketed the NEA convention in Philadelphia on Sunday, July 1. Aged eight to eighty, they took positions on all four corners of Arch & 11th Streets, displaying high-visibility signs and posters easily seen by thousands of NEA Delegates disembarking from shuttle buses or entering and leaving the massive PA Convention Center’s doorways.

Pro-lifers and delegates were interviewed by reporters and photojournalists from FOX, Philadelphia Bulletin, Washington Times, Catholic Standard & Times, etc. Many delegates openly expressed disbelief, skepticism, and even shock, at the revelation that NEA was involved in abortion at all – much less in an advocacy role – much less pro-abortion. They were totally unaware of NEA’s long-standing “Family Planning Resolution” supporting "reproductive freedom” and “all methods of family planning” – including abortion. Some refused to accept the well-documented fact that NEA is one of Planned Parenthood’s primary advocates and actually co-sponsored huge pro-abortion rallies in Washington in April 2004, April 1992, and November 1989.

A few belligerent delegates verbally berated the pro-lifers, accusing them of “lying”. Others thanked pro-lifers for bringing NEA’s abortion activism into sharp focus. Some said they would raise the issue on the Convention Floor and attempt to have NEA totally abandon its pro-abortion agenda and activism. Bob Pawson, National Coordinator of PLEAS and NJEA member, said, “We joined NEA for collective bargaining representation; not to be misrepresented on socio-political or moral issues like abortion, homosexuality, or who to vote for. Respect the diversity of 3.2 million members. Totally disengage NEA from the abortion issue. Become truly neutral and completely non-involved.” "The NEA leadership's pro-abortion agenda is a perverse way of protecting our jobs. Babies are our business; our only business. For NEA to condone, much less promote, killing babies in their wombs is not only a moral outrage; it’s economic suicide. Abortion costs us our jobs.”
