Call again today! - 10/08/09 - Chicago Action Call - Stop the bubble zones!

I’ve got a lot of urgent news and alerts to share with you today, after our BIG LOSS in the Chicago City Council. So please take a moment to read all the way through my message.

Today, both the pro-life cause and cherished American value of freedom of speech suffered a grim defeat in the Chicago City Council—but this pro-life battle is far from over!

The City Council voted to PASS the health center Bubble Zone ordinance, an attempt by abortionists to muzzle compassionate pro-life sidewalk counseling.

That’s the bad news. But here’s the GOOD NEWS:

First, a HUGE PRO-LIFE CROWD of over 150 showed up at City Hall this morning—despite having only a few days notice—to protest the Bubble Zone.

What’s more, the protest garnered GREAT MEDIA COVERAGE.

Chicago print, radio and TV outlets were all there. Several sidewalk counselors were able to share what their peaceful ministry is really all about: offering desperate women a real choice—for life.

Get all the details about today’s protest, including pictures of the crowd holding “NO Bubble Zone” and “Protect Free Speech” signs, here:


Before this bad law goes into effect, Mayor Richard Daley has to approve it. We’ve got to convince the mayor to VETO the Bubble Zone.

We’re already having such a big impact with our calls that they’ve set up an automated system for the public to speak out on the Bubble Zone. Here’s the steps to follow:

  1. CALL the mayor’s office at 312-744-3300.
  2. PRESS 1 to submit your opinion on the Bubble Zone.
  3. Then PRESS 2 to vote NO on the Bubble Zone.

If already made a call before today’s City Council vote, PLEASE CALL AGAIN to convince the Mayor to veto it.

But that’s not all you can do to fight the Bubble Zone. The leaders of the pro-life ministry at Chicago’s Planned Parenthood abortuary on the near north side have planned a FACE THE TRUTH TOUR Saturday:

  EVENT: Face the Truth Tour at Planned Parenthood Chicago
  WHEN: Saturday, October 10, 9-11 a.m.
  WHERE: LaSalle St and Division St

Come out and show Planned Parenthood that, despite all their influence and all their lies, they cannot intimidate the pro-life community. We’re going to keep fighting to save babies!

Yours for Life,


P.S. I want to emphasize that this is not just a Chicago issue. Planned Parenthood wants Bubble Zone laws like this one to be enacted across the country. So please speak out wherever you live!

P.P.S. Remember, the Bubble Zone is not yet the law in Chicago. Mayor Daley has to sign it first. Call him at 312-744-3300 and tell him to protect free speech in Chicago and veto the Bubble Zone.
