Ask the U.S. Postal Service to Issue a “Choose Life” Commemorative Stamp to Honor the Dignity of Every Human Life

The "Choose Life" Commemorative Stamp petition is sponsored by Choose Life AmericaInternational Organization for the FamilyHeartbeat International, Human Life International, and Population Research Institute.

Ask the U.S. Postal Service to Issue a “Choose Life” Commemorative Stamp to Honor the Dignity of Every Human Life and to Counter their Pro-Abortion Message in their "Family Planning" Postage Stamp.

The United States needs a "Choose Life" stamp to demonstrate that every human life has value, significance, dignity, and worth. The U.S, Declaration of Independence proclaims the basic rights to “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness” among humanity’s inalienable rights.  Despite the Declaration's clear "right to life" proclamation in the American founding, the United States is only 1 of 7 countries along with North Korea, China and Vietnam to allow unnecessary late-term abortions.  Thankfully, the majority of Americans choose to be pro-life and the majority of states support the message "Choose Life" (32/50 states have "Choose Life" license plates available).   A "Choose Life" stamp would celebrate and demonstrate the dignity and sanctity of every human life from conception to natural death in the midst our legal, cultural, and civilizational battle to protect the right to life and dignity of all human persons.

Background

1. In the United States, recommendations for commemorative stamps are made by the Citizens’ Stamp Advisory Committee, based in part on suggestions from the public. The Committee is appointed by the Postmaster General, who in turn receives its recommendations.

2. Each year, 30 to 40 new subjects are selected for commemorative stamps. There have been stamps celebrating love, peace and everything from Disney villains and “retro funny cats” to “frozen treats.”

3. On March 18, 1972 (the year before Roe v. Wade was decided), the United States Postal Service issued a stamp honoring “family planning" and seeking to promote abortion, birth control, and small families as a "social good."

4. At luncheon with 300 members of the Planned Parenthood Federation present, J.T. Ellison, USPS spokesman, described what he considered to be the significance of the stamp. (“We hope… this stamp will serve as a reminder to all members of our society that a spiraling world population and the environmental and social ills that inevitably follow – is everyone’s concern.”) In other words, with this stamp, USPS endorsed the Malthusian myth of over-population, repeated by Paul Ehrlich in “The Population Bomb,” published four years earlier.

5. We need a Choose Life stamp that will serve as a reminder that worldwide, fertility rates have been cut in half since the late 1960s (in the United States, the fertility rate in 2015 was 1.84, well below the replacement level of 2.1), that each year there are 56 million abortions worldwide (900,000 to 1 million in the U.S. alone) and that the Declaration of Independence proclaims the rights to “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness” among humanity’s inalienable rights.

Petition to: U.S. Postmaster General Megan Brennan and The Citizens’ Stamp Advisory Committee

Megan J. Brennan, Postmaster General and CEO of the U.S. Postal Service

Dear Postmaster General,

All over the world, fertility rates are plummeting. Worldwide, 56 million abortions are performed each year (900,000 to 1 million in the U.S. alone). The Declaration of Independence acknowledges the inalienable rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

Without the right to life, no other rights are possible.

Our society goes to extraordinary lengths to preserve life, in times of natural disaster and through the efforts of first responders every day.

As President Donald Trump said at the 2018 March for Life, the movement to protect life “is a movement born out of love: you love your families; you love your neighbors; you love our nation; and you love every child born and unborn, because you believe every life is sacred, that every child is a precious gift from God.”

I urge you to direct the U.S. Postal Service to issue a “Choose Life” commemorative stamp – honoring life in all of its stages, from conception to natural death.

Sincerely,
[Your Name]
