The FOCA (Freedom of Choice Act) is once again in the front of news. President Obama has said he will sign it when it comes to his desk. First acts in office he promoted abortion across the world by ending the Mexico City policy. Should this be U.S. policy? In his striving for "change" is his goal to destroy whatever is left of Christian values in this country?
What is FOCA? It will make abortion a fundamental right under federal law trumping any state laws banning or limiting any form of abortion at any time.
Would you want your 13-year-old daughter to have an abortion without your knowledge or approval? You the taxpayer would have to pay for all abortions. In addition if FOCA is approved all Catholic hospitals would be forced to close since in order to receive federal funding they would have to perform abortions; that they could not do. The U.S. Catholic bishops made it clear to President Obama about this issue. What would be the fallout if a large number of hospitals closed? What would happen to medical care? The other hospitals could not handle the load of patients.
This is not the "change" that America needs! Contact your U.S. Representatives and US Senators to tell them 'NO' to FOCA! Here is the contact information:
