A pro-life group is calling on the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences to allow the song "Alone Yet Not Alone" from the movie of the same title to compete with other selections for the Oscar award after its nomination was revoked last week.
Artists for Life created a petition asking the Academy to reverse its decision.
"Bruce Broughton has a long and distinguished career which deserves better treatment at the hands of the Motion Picture Academy," says Artists for Life Director Albert Strong. "God will use this questionable ruling for His glory, and the song will be magnified through this episode more widely than we can know."
Broughton, a former Academy governor and executive committee member in its music branch, composed the song. The Academy said on Wednesday that Broughton had used his position within the organization to contact voters about his own submission of the song, which was "inconsistent" with the Academy's rules on Oscar nominations campaigning.
