THE TIME HAS COME
TO STOP ULTRA-RIGHT WING
ASSAULTS ON PERSONAL FREEDOM
The Supreme Court has spoken! While the Court's recent
ruling on abortion will not make the process technically
illegal, it opens the door to a variety of other legal
questions which could seriously restrict a woman's right to
Without a doubt, the increased political pressure which
will arise as a result of the Supreme Court's latest ruling,
will have the effect of severely limiting a woman's options
and in some instances even prevent women from receiving the
help they so desperately need.
Now that the individual states will have the right to
regulate certain aspects of abortion, and in some instances,
eliminate state sponsored abortion clinics, special interest
groups are in the process of mobilizing their forces for an
all out assault on abortion.
Now more than ever individuals have a responsibility to
speak out on an important issue and support a cause which
will undoubtedly have a direct affect on the development of
our nation throughout the 90's and on into the 21st century.
Special interest groups comprised of extreme right wing
zealots will continue to apply pressure to the various state
legislatures in an attempt to have clinics closed in as many
states as possible. If they are successful in their efforts
these organizations will be directly responsible for
endangering the lives of hundreds of thousands of women.
We must oppose radical organizations like Operation
Rescue on every level possible as they threaten to
compromise the personal freedom and social well being of all
The Reverend Jerry Falwell, typically, is mobilizing his
forces and directly soliciting funds from his followers as
he gears up for an all out assault on personal freedom. He
most certainly plans to use the donations he is receiving to
build a war chest which he will ultimately use to finance
propaganda and lobbying campaigns on a state level
throughout the country.
While we respect Rev. Falwell's right to lobby for
whatever political change he feels necessary, we also have a
right to oppose him every way possible. Now is your chance
to make a direct political statement, oppose Rev. Falwell
and support the pro-choice movement with one sweeping
Rev. Falwell now has a special toll free number which has
been set up to accept donations for his anti-abortion
movement and disseminate propaganda on the pro-choice
movement. Each time a caller dials this 800 number and
reaches a Falwell volunteer on the other end, Falwell is
billed for the call (approx. $0.80) per call. While 80
cents may not seem like much, it does add up if you make
multiple calls a few times every day. And it doesn't cost
the caller a cent!
For the record, Falwell's anti-abortion number is 1-800-
WHAT YOU CAN DO TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE:
1. Call this number as many times as possible throughout the
day. Wait for someone on the other end to answer the phone,
then hang up and dial the number again. It doesn't cost you
anything but the time it takes to dial and wait for an
answer. Each time you call, Falwell is billed.
2. Pass this number along to all of your friends and
associates who feel as strongly as you do about a woman's
right to free choice. URGE YOUR FRIENDS TO MAKE NUMEROUS
CALLS DAILY UNTIL FALWELL IS FORCED TO DISCONNECT THE
3. For those of you with modems and personal computer, which
should be just about everyone who is reading this, set up
your communications program to dial this number throughout
the night, while you sleep. Most modems will be able to
connect with Falwell at least 60 times an hour. If
hundreds, or even thousands of people around the country did
this every night for a month, Falwell would have to
seriously curtail his anti-abortion fundraising activities.
4. The first time you call this number, ask to be put on the
mailing list. Give an assumed name! Give several assumed
names! In no time, you'll be receiving tons of junk mail.
The printing and postage costs for each mailing can be quite
expensive. Falwell spare's no expense with his mailings,
because he assumes that a majority of the mail he sends out
will produce cash donations.
5. Print these instructions and make copies to distribute
around your community. Urge everyone you know to flood
Falwell with calls!
Now is the time for direct action. Falwell and others
like him have declared war on personal freedom. Only you
can return the favor by declaring war on Falwell and his
narrow minded, fascistic viewpoint.
