Pro-Life Organizations Push For Post Office To Offer ‘Choose Life’ Stamp

In March 1972, at the height of the Nixon Administration, the U.S. Postal Service produced a stamp promoting "family planning," the year before the Supreme Court legalized abortion in Roe V. Wade.

LifeNews reports that pro-life organizations are joining to urge the Postal Service to issue a “Choose Life” stamp. Larry Jacobs, managing director of the World Congress of Families, explained, "... Just like we have ['Choose Life'] license plates in some of the states ... there's no reason we can't we have a 'Choose Life' stamp as a commemorative stamp at the national level. It only balances out a stamp that the U.S. Postal Service already had promoting family planning."

Jacobs listed some groups joining the effort: "Heartbeat International represents some 2,000+ pro-life pregnancy centers in the U.S. and internationally, Human Life International, Population Research Institute is also an official partner with us on this."

The amalgam of organizations is asking people to sign a petition urging the Postal Service to approve a "Choose Life" stamp. The Citizens' Stamp Advisory Committee only approves roughly 40 stamps each year.

"Choose Life" license plates are approved in 32 states, and have raised over $26 million through March 31, 2018.
