Rock for Life calls for boycott of musicians touring to promote abortion on demand

.- A pro-life group is challenging a grassroots group that has launched a concert tour in an effort to defeat President George W. Bush in the upcoming election.

The American Life League's Rock for Life is calling for a boycott of artists like Bruce Springsteen, the Dixie Chicks, Pearl Jam and the Dave Matthews band, who are taking part in MoveOn.org's "Vote for Change" concert tour.

Erik Whittington, director of American Life League’s Rock for Life, said musicians on the "Vote for Change" tour say they are promoting change, but they actually, "pride themselves on being counter-cultural, [and] are working to maintain the status quo: abortion on demand," reported Cybercast News Service.

Whittington said: "Real change will only come when all Americans – celebrities and average citizens alike – are willing to stand up to protect preborn babies from violence of abortion."

Rock for Life is organizing youth activists to protest the "Vote for Change" tour and to raise awareness about the truth of abortion. They are also urging young people to stop supporting these artists by not buying their CDs or concert tickets "until they stop advocating the destruction of our generation."
