Send a letter denouncing Australia's deportation of a peaceful pro-life speaker

In a blatant act of censorship, an American pro-life activist and speaker has been denied access to Australia.

Right To Life Australia invited Troy Newman, the president of the American pro-life organization Operation Rescue, to visit on a fortnight speaking tour of Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Hobart and Cairns. When Terri Butler, a Labor member of the Australian Parliament, got word of the invitation, she used her influence to have Newman's travel visa revoked.

By the time Newman learned his visa had been revoked by the Department of Immigration, he was already en route. When he landed and went to take the connecting flight to Melbourne, he was denied access to the plane. Eventually, he was able to gain access to the plane, but immediately upon landing he was seized and brought before a court.

Even though the revocation of Newman's visa was politically motivated by pro-abortion forces that wanted to silence the pro-life message, the court denied Newman's request and ultimately deported him back to the United States.

"The revocation was based on a pile of lies, including the idea that I promote violence," Troy Newman posted on Facebook. "My 25-year history of peaceful, prayerful action speaks for itself."

Newman has a month to challenge the visa refusal from the United States. If successful he can return to Australia.

We need to make our voices heard loud and clear that a free, democratic society such as Australia has no business censoring speakers who promote the pro-life position! Make your voice heard by signing this petition, which sends an automatic email to the Department of Immigration and Justice Nettle (who decided Newman's case) expressing your dissatisfaction with their outrageous decision.

The deportation of Troy Newman is outrageous

Dear Justice Geoffrey Nettle and the Australian Department of Immigration and Border Protection,

I am deeply disturbed by the decision to deport Troy Newman, a peaceful American pro-life speaker and author. 

The cancelation of his government-authorized visa was a blatant act of censorship and intolerance toward pro-life views. The allegations that Troy Newman supports vigilante violence against abortionists is untrue, as he testified to authorities this week.

Australia should be a welcoming country to visitors who share diverse opinions. It should not be closed to visitors who oppose abortion and wish to express their views on the matter.

I encourage the reissuance of a travel visa to Troy Newman, for the purposes of speaking to Right to Life Australia.

Sincerely,
[Your Name]
