The Freedom of Choice Act: Fatal to Pre-Born Americans

Barack Obama is rapidly earning the distinction of being the most reckless President in my lifetime. Having used his office to push America to the brink of bankruptcy during his first 60 days in office, he is now marshalling his forces to pass the Freedom of Choice Act which is a ruthless misuse of the English language if you are a pre-born child.
With this legislation Obama will cement his place in the abortion Hall of Fame. There are over 550 federal state and local laws that FOCA would nullify. Americans United for Life has compiled a list that includes but is not limited to the following:

  • Partial Birth Abortion Ban Act of 2003
  • Hyde Amendment (restricting taxpayer funding of abortions)
  • Restrictions on abortions performed at military hospitals
  • Restrictions on insurance coverage for abortion for federal employees
  • Informed consent laws
  • Waiting periods
  • Parental consent and notification laws
  • Health and safety regulations for abortion clinics
  • Requirements that licensed physicians perform abortions
  • "Delayed enforcement" laws (banning abortion when Roe v. Wade is overturned and/or the authority to restrict abortion is returned to the states)
  • Bans on partial-birth abortion
  • Bans on abortion after viability. FOCA's apparent attempt to limit post-viability abortions is illusory. Under FOCA, post-viability abortions are expressly permitted to protect the woman's "health." Within the context of abortion, "health" has been interpreted so broadly that FOCA would not actually prescribe any abortion before or after viability.
  • Limits on public funding for elective abortions (thus, making American taxpayers fund a procedure that many find morally objectionable)
  • Limits on the use of public facilities (such has public hospitals and medical schools at state universities) for abortions
  • State and federal legal protections for individual health care providers who decline to participate in abortions
  • Legal protections for Catholic and other religiously-affiliated hospitals who, while providing care to millions of poor and uninsured Americans, refuse to allow abortions within their facilities

Those who believe in the sanctity of human life must use every available means at their disposal to stop this wicked bill. Please join thousands of others by sending a fax to every member of the House and the Senate to express your opposition to this legislation and urge members of both parties to say no to the President.

If you know of a friend who suspended their pro-life convictions to vote for President Obama please forward this email to them and start the process of informing all Values Voters that elections have consequences.
