He calls it July 2 Life. Starting with little more than an idea and a name five months ago, Bryan Field began talking with church friends at Kung Fu Tea on Frazier Ave. Out of this Mr. Field launched a coordinated letter-writing campaign to Congress to make abortion illegal. July 2 Life is designed to be an annual letter writing campaign that Mr. Field believes will be effective in ending abortion.

Mr. Field estimates that the pro-life community can readily achieve more than three million letters going to Congress on an annual basis. This would make it the largest letter-writing campaign in the history of the world.

The idea is a convenient combination of technology and oldschool.
With the July 2 Life website, it only takes five minutes to print your letter, stamp it and drop it in the mailbox every July. The website has a straight-forward zip code lookup feature that produces a letter personalized to your own congressman.

The idea starts with history. The last Constitutional Amendment, languished for more than 180 years, and was largely forgotten. It was brought to the surface by a letter-writing campaign started by one man in 1982, and passed ten years later in 1992.

Mr. Field believes that H.R. 616 Life At Conception Act can be passed the same way - with a letter-writing campaign. Anybody can come to a rally, but letters require a unified community voice - which the pro-life community has!

"It is fitting to start this ambitious pro-life project from Chattanooga! We are the largest city with no abortion facility, and home to the National Memorial for the Unborn," said Field.

Mr. Field is asking people to send a letter any time in July, as close to July 2nd as possible. This is done by visiting july2life.com, and and entering your zip code. "It is very convenient - anybody can send a letter. Even the very young," said Mr. Field.

Mr. Field is a member of Chattanooga Primitive Baptist Church, and is working closely with Charlie Wysong, who is a prolific pro-life advocate with 15 children. Mr. Wysong pioneered the abortion malpractice effort which has been largely responsible in reducing the number of abortion clinics nationwide from 2,200 to 470. He also was instrumental in closing both of Chattanooga's abortion clinics.

Mr. Field says he is very pleased how quickly the July 2 Life project has accelerated as a result of his association with Mr Wysong. But perhaps what pleases him the most, is photographs of stacks of letters being sent to him from people all over the country.

"I am thankful to be the founder and webmaster to what I believe will become the most influential pro-life project of my generation. Every pro-life American can afford a 55 cent stamp, and five minutes on july2life.com. Everyone." said Mr. Field.

Individuals who do not have internet access can call Congress (202) 224-3121 to ask for their congressman's mailing address. They are asked Congress to support H.R. 616 Life At Conception Act, and send their letter as close to July 2nd as possible.

Mr. Field says he will begin working year-round to grow the project foundation for a stronger campaign year after year until the Life At Conception Act is passed.

Who among us has never wondered why it seems that the wicked prosper and the righteous suffer? I certainly have and I am sure that you have also. We are in good company.
