FightFOCA.com Petition Approaches 250,000; Americans United for Life
Join Fight FOCA Log on.
Take a number.
Hit the lottery.
A quarter million is a nice number. Will it be yours?
Maybe something better — if you are for Life.
FightFOCA is an on-line petition to persuade our national leadership: President-Elect Obama, Senator Majority Leader Reid and House Majority Leader Pelosi that limiting states rights is not what the voters want.
[Correction: Alert Readers will note that Pelosi is the Speaker of the House, Democrat Steny Hoyer from Maryland is the House Majority Leader.]
The public wants the financial market regulated.
The public wants the abortion market regulated.
The public wants common sense oversight of abortion.
Parents want to know if their child is having an abortion.
Women want all surgical procedures to be to the highest medical standards.
The public wants licensed doctors doing surgery; not social workers.
Women want information about their babies through the science of sonograms.
Cecile Richards, president of Planned Parenthood, is against all these regulations. Why?
Follow the money. Planned Parenthood grosses — so to say — a billion (that’s B as in Billion) (a 1,000 million) dollars each year.
L: A Baby
R: A BabyPlanned Parenthood profits from abortion.
Planned Parenthood gets a $300 million bailout each each year from the taxpayer.
Planned Parenthood wants a blind eye on their abortion money-machine.
Your Business Blogger(R) is a capitalistic-for profit kind of guy — but who would want to earn earnings from the slave trade?
If you want your state’s rights to guard your child’s health, sign the petition.
Their will be a special recognition for the 250,000 milestone.
Thank you (foot)notes:

FOCA Would Wipe Away Every Restriction on Abortion Nationwide.
This would eradicate state and federal laws that the majority of Americans support, such as:
* Bans on Partial Birth Abortion
* Requirements that women be given information about the risks of getting an abortion
* Only licensed physicians can perform abortions
* Parents must be informed and give consent to their minor daughter’s abortion
FOCA would erase these laws and prevent states from enacting similar protective measures in the future.

Even our liberal friends are noticing the work of Americans United for Life. Right Wing Watch writes,
“Any time you have a loss like that, you have an opportunity to reassess and come back stronger,” said Charmaine Yoest, president of Americans United for Life. “If they want to see this as a big loss that will set us back, that’s OK. Our people are very energized, and ready for Round Two.”

ZENIT, Life and the Elections,
In 2008, 45 states considered nearly 450 measures related to abortion alone. Among 2008 pro-life victories are:
— An omnibus measure in Oklahoma, requiring that a woman undergo an ultrasound prior to an abortion, regulating the provision of RU-486, and prohibiting coerced abortions;
— New laws in Ohio, South Carolina, and South Dakota requiring that abortion providers offer a woman the opportunity to view an ultrasound prior to an abortion;
— Legislatures in Colorado, Maryland, and Michigan limiting the use of taxpayer funding for abortions and abortion counseling;
— Idaho lawmakers strengthening the state’s informed consent law and prohibiting coerced abortions;
— Meaningful funding of abortion alternatives in Louisiana, Missouri, Oklahoma, and Pennsylvania.
The international All News Web reports, Abortion: Obama’s nightmare,
Obama has promised to restore federal funding to international family planning services, that is, his administration will financially support institutions around the globe that perform abortions. Obama has also promised to sign FOCA or the Freedom of Choice Act. Anti-abortion activists are mobilising for a battle as they now realise they no longer have an ally in the White House.
Americans United for Life is gathering up signatures at a frantic pace to oppose FOCA.
CNSNews.com has Catholics Who Vote for Freedom of Choice Act Could Face Automatic Excommunication, Cardinal Francis George of Chicago says,
“Parental notification and informed consent precautions would be outlawed, as would be laws banning procedures such as partial-birth abortion and protecting infants born alive after a failed abortion. Abortion clinics would be deregulated,” said George.
“The Hyde Amendment restricting the federal funding of abortions would be abrogated. FOCA would have lethal consequences for prenatal human life,” he said.
“FOCA would have an equally destructive effect on the freedom of conscience of doctors, nurses and health care workers whose personal convictions do not permit them to cooperate in the private killing of unborn children,” George continued.
“It would threaten Catholic health care institutions and Catholic Charities. It would be an evil law that would further divide our country, and the Church should be intent on opposing evil. On this issue, the legal protection of the unborn, the bishops are of one mind with Catholics and others of good will.”
