MIAMI (LifeSiteNews) — Florida Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis this week signed legislation designating a statewide day to “remind people of the destruction communism has caused worldwide, including a death toll exceeding 100 million.”

DeSantis signed HB 395 into law on Monday, making November 7 the official “Victims of Communism Day” in the Sunshine State.

The popular Republican governor, who has gained strong support among conservatives for opposing draconian COVID rules and banning woke racial and sexual ideology in school curricula, said during the Monday signing ceremony that the day of remembrance will “honor the more than 100 million people who have fallen victim to Communist regimes across the world.”

In a tweet highlighting the legislation, DeSantis affirmed that “[i]n Florida, we will tell the truth about communism.”

The Catholic Republican governor put his signature to the bill in Miami, a south Florida city with a large population of Cuban-American immigrants, many of whom have experienced the reality of communism in their home country.

SIGN this petition urging the Chief Justice and all the Associate Justices to PUBLISH the decision to overturn Roe now!

Don't allow pro-abortion leftists to pressure Supreme Court justices to change their vote to overturn Roe!

According to an initial leaked draft majority opinion allegedly written by Justice Samuel Alito and obtained by Politico, the U.S. Supreme Court has voted to overturn its nearly 50-year-old Roe v. Wade decision, which imposed abortion on demand across the country.

As reported by Politico, the opinion is “a full-throated, unflinching repudiation of the 1973 decision."

Of course, if this decision holds, this would be the best news in decades, thanks be to God!

However, leftists in Washington and in the media will stop at nothing to prevent Roe from being overturned.

But, intimidation and threats cannot be permitted to influence the Court, especially on this most fundamental human rights ruling.

That's why - right now - it's essential to urge the High Court to PUBLISH the ruling which overturns Roe.

SIGN this petition urging the Chief Justice and all the Associate Justices to PUBLISH the decision to overturn Roe now!

The leak of a drafted opinion is unprecedented in Supreme Court history and is sending shockwaves through the legal world.

Rumors are swirling about who could've leaked this seminal ruling, and what Chief Justice Roberts and the FBI will do about it.

But, this is a distraction from the real news which is that the Supreme Court is on the verge of righting one of the worst legal decisions ever made in the United States.

Over 60 million babies have been killed in the U.S. since the 1973 Roe v. Wade ruling, a colossal evil that has been allowed to stand for too long.

That's why we need to tell the Members of the U.S. Supreme Court to stand strong and PUBLISH THE RULING NOW!

Thank you for SIGNING and SHARING this urgent petition.

“Honoring the people that have fallen victim to communist regimes and teaching our students about those atrocities is the best way to ensure that history does not repeat itself,” DeSantis explained in a May 9 press release. “Through HB 395 and the funding announced today, we are guaranteeing that the history of those who fled communist regimes and their experiences are preserved and not forgotten by our students.”

“While it’s fashionable in some circles to whitewash the history of communism, Florida will stand for truth and remain as a beachhead for freedom,” the governor added.

DeSantis is not the first or only Republican governor to set aside time to recognize the atrocities committed under Communist regimes and honor the political ideology’s victims.

Last year, Nebraska Republican Gov. Pete Ricketts established July as the Cornhusker State’s “Victims of Communism Remembrance Month.”

“An estimated 100 million people died from political purges, religious persecutions, mass starvations, and other crimes against humanity carried out by communist regimes such as the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (USSR) and the People’s Republic of China,” the Nebraska governor’s office declared, according to a report from The Daily Wire.
