Is Abortion a Right? The Inauguration of Obama
People are divided. The country is divided.
However one feels, Obama has promised to make this division worse. He has promised to sign the Freedom of Choice Act or FOCA.
The Coweta-FayetteRTL blog reminds us that FOCA would,
* Provide for taxpayer-funded abortion on demand at all 9 months of pregnancy
* Grant abortionists protections from legal action
* Allow abortionists to perform abortion on minors without parental notification
* Deny health care workers the right to refuse to make abortion referrals as a matter of conscience
* Take away legal protection from religiously-affiliated hospitals who refuse to allow abortions within their facilities
* Overturn laws requiring abortions to be performed by a licensed physician
In April 2007 the Senate considered FOCA. Read the bill foca_2007_senate.pdf.
The Supreme Court has allowed abortion through all nine months of pregnancy. Obama goes further (and later) and supports post-birth abortion. A civilized people will not stand for the destruction of its most defenseless citizens. Obama is in for a fight.
Join Fight FOCA
December before last Your Business Blogger(R) followed Charmaine as she worked on the Huckabee presidential campaign. I drove the Penta-Posse in the monster Huck-a-truck and we lived out (lots!) of suitcases across Arkansas, Iowa, New Hampshire.
All of the campaigners, liberal and conservative, stayed in the same hotels. We often crossed paths and chatted in the elevators.
Sometimes we’d compliment the Obama team. “He’s a very attractive candidate,” I remember saying to an Obama worker at one time…
Anybody was better than Hillary.
Now we have both of them.
So what do we do now with the coming socialists? Waiting for the party of death?
Sign FightFOCA, to start.
Thank you (foot)notes:
Be sure to see Charmaine speak at Blogs 4 Life this Thursday, the 22nd in Your Nation’s Capital.
Random Thoughts has graphics of partial birth abortion, which would be permitted under Obama’s Freedom of Choice Act.
Thank you to NRL for the FOCA legislative link.
Please sign the petition. Almost 470,000 have signed to date.

Read Father Jim,
As Catholics, we must oppose passage of the evil “Freedom of Choice Act.” To read more about our U.S. Bishops’ opposition to FOCA, visit www.usccb.org/prolife/issues/FOCA. Americans United For Life is also encouraging pro-lifers to sign a petition against FOCA at www.fightfoca.com. Also certain to arise soon is the issue of federal judgeship nominations. President Obama’s picks for these key positions are all expected to be pro-choice, as are his choices for the Supreme Court. Committed pro-life Catholics have ample opportunity to pray for our nation, the very anti-life direction we are going towards now and our new President. God help America!
Abortion and FOCA is uniting all different religious traditions. See Making My Own Colors.
