"Choose Life" Stamp Campaign

March 21, 2018

Dear Pro-Life Friend, 

Human Life International has joined with IOF, the International Organization for the Family (parent organization of the World Congress of Families), Heartbeat International, and the Population Research Institute, to petition the United States Postal Service (USPS) to launch a “Choose Life” stamp.  

Our immediate goal is to reach or exceed 20,000 signatories. We would ask that you go online and please add your name as soon as possible to the CitizenGo petition. 

According to IOF, recommendations are made to and decided by the Citizens' Stamp Advisory Committee, appointed by the Postmaster General. There has never been a stamp representing the pro-life cause, but amazingly the USPS issued an 8-cent stamp in the 1970s promoting “family planning.”  

The time is long past to counter that message. We need a Choose Life stamp as a reminder that worldwide fertility rates have been cut in half since the late 1960s, that each year there are 56 million abortions globally (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. 

Russ Amerling, founder of the “Choose Life” license plate campaign, which now exists in 32 states, has also endorsed this effort by HLI and the IOF. 

Each year the Advisory Committee receives up to 50,000 stamp proposals and only an estimated 40 commemorative stamps may be chosen in a particular year. Join us. Help families to “Choose Life!” 

Sincerely yours in Christ,
