He gained national attention when he closed his store to demonstrate against a new abortion law in his state.  Now Pastor Jon Speed of Syracuse, New York is taking the protest national.  Speed is the pastor of a church in suburban Syracuse and owns a bookstore. 

If enough businesses got on board it would show some figurative muscle

When the bill effectively legalizing infanticide became law last month, Speed closed his doors in order to deny the state sales tax from his business.

In what I’ve described as a Christian National Strike, Speed is calling on all Christian owned businesses nationwide to close this Saturday, February 23rd.  If enough businesses got on board it would show some figurative muscle to governments increasingly resorting to paganism.

Speed is also promoting a sanctuary city in a neighboring county.  The City of Batavia, New York could declare itself a sanctuary for life.  Batavia is located between the cities of Buffalo and Rochester.
