Among the most powerful entities in the United States are teachers' unions. Just last week at the National Education Association's (NEA) annual conference, the NEA, which is the largest teachers' union in the U.S., with more than 3 million members, approved New Business Item 56, a resolution expressing full and unlimited support for abortion access.

The NEA resolution states: "The NEA will include an assertion of our defense of a person's right to control their own body, especially for women, youth and sexually marginalized people. The NEA vigorously opposes all attacks on the right to choose and stands on the fundamental right to abortion under Roe v. Wade."

As if that wasn't bad enough, the NEA went on to suggest that pro-lifers were "misogynistic forces" who "want to abolish the gains of women's rights movement."

Reading these quotes, I have to ask myself how an organization charged with making school a safe haven for kids and a good workplace for teachers can be so anti-children in its beliefs? It’s because the NEA has morphed into a massive liberal special interest group, committed to pushing an extreme liberal agenda that most of its teacher members find appalling.

According to the Washington Examiner, the NEA has been supporting progressive social causes for years, including staggering donations to liberal political candidates. From 2017 to 2018, the NEA gave almost $20 million in political donations. Nearly $2.5 million of that went to Democrats, and over $16 million went to liberal groups. But only $216,280 went to Republicans.

Abortion is nothing more than a culture of death. The NEA should rethink its support of it.

Sign our petition to the NEA, urging it to rescind New Business Item 56 and remove itself from the abortion debate.
