Official Statement About the "Contact Todd Stave Campaign"

“Then he said to them all: ‘Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross daily and follow me‘.” — Luke 9:23

RegulationsThe MD Coalition for Life re-affirms our commitment to peaceful, non-violent advocacy for the pre-born and mothers in crisis. Some Pro-life groups have chosen to participate in certain school protest activities completely outside of the scope and intent of the Coalition, canadian viagra and healthcare but I want to assure everyone that the Coalition remains steadfast and focused. These controversial activities, though legal, are NOTsomething that MDCFL has or would participate in.

I also want to assure everyone that the MD Coalition for Life email and letter writing campaign focusing on Todd Stave (landlord of the building where Carhart is performing late term abortions) is 100% legal, 100% ethical, and completely “above reproach”. The 1st Amendment of our Constitution protects our God-given right to speak out when we see something that is immoral, and our God calls us to “Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves…” in Proverbs 31:8.

I’m sure you have seen dozens of campaigns like this, focused on business owners, CEO’s of large organizations like Home Depot and Pepsi, along with elected officials and Government Department Heads. This is a fair, legal, ethical, and widely used strategy to inform those who have influence that we do not agree with their actions and to encourage them to make a positive change.

UnityThe information distributed by MDCFL and the suggested message wording posted on the KickOutCarhart.com website were focused solely on Todd Stave as a business owner/landlord. The contact information shared by MDCFL was publicly accessible and was found on his website – www.ToddStave.com (it looks like he has removed some of his contact info since the beginning of the campaign). There was NO personal or family information listed or utilized in the MDCFL campaign. We encourage citizens to express their views in a winsome and loving way to those who are advocating for or profiting from the killing of innocent children – which Todd Stave is.

There has been some misunderstanding and confusion over the purpose and content of this communications campaign, so the MDCFL has chosen to temporarily suspend the campaign, and we are currently working with the appropriate Montgomery County officials and one of the most well-respected and successful Social Issue Law Firms in America to resolve the misunderstanding. The campaign will be reinstated shortly, along with additional campaigns and steps that we can all take to ensure that the public understands that Todd Stave is NOT an innocent victim, but a participant and beneficiary of the killing of innocent babies – who are the actual victims.

Please do not hesitate to contact us any time with questions or comments.

MD Pro-Life Caucus, Abortion Regulations, and 40 Days for Life

“Then he said to them buy viagra generica all: ‘Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross daily and follow me‘.” — Luke 9:23

UnityThe 2nd meeting of the MD Coalition and the Pro-Life Caucus was held last week. It was a fantastic meeting, and really continued to solidify the Unity of the Maryland Pro-Life movement that we saw during the Summer of Mercy 2.0. There were legislators, activist groups, lobbyist groups, churches, and Pregnancy Centers present…and everyone is still very interested in continuing to work together moving forward in MD. Regulations

The abortion center regulations drafted by the Department of Health and Mental Hygiene were discussed, along with legislative and general strategy discussions. There will be much more information about the regulations coming out in the next few weeks, and there will be a FORMAL comment period coming up this year, so everyone will have a chance to voice their opinion about the regulations to the State. We will make sure everyone knows when this comment period will start, and the good and the bad points about the regulations themselves.

RegulationsWe have launched a brand new letter-writing campaign on the KickOutCarhart website. We urge everyone to go to the website and TAKE ACTION NOW. We will be writing, emailing, and calling Todd Stave, who is the owner/landlord of the building where Germantown Health and Reproductive Services operates and where Carhart is performing late-term abortions.

Make plans now to attend one of the local Maryland 40 Days for Life kickoff rallies, and sign up for an hour a day or an hour a week to stand Vigil and pray at one or more of the Vigil locations!
