As most of you know, Obama made a public announcement that he is going to sign the Freedom Of Choice Act, which will allow all types of abortions including partial birth abortions and also allowing babies who are born alive due to botched up late term abortions, to be set aside without any medical care or nourishment and left to die (most of these babies have no medical problems). There is more mercy for dogs that are put to sleep.
This Bill will also make it mandatory for doctors and nurses to perform this act, even if they do not want to do so. This act also allows under age teens to have an abortion, even partial birth abortions, without parental consent. Catholic Bishops have pleaded with Obama, not to go ahead with this. They have also told Obama, that if he persists in signing this Bill, which would require even Catholic Hospitals to perform these acts, they will have no choice but to close Catholic Hospitals. Please, let us join with these courageous Bishops, who will go to any length to change Obama's mind. Please take a minute to sign this statement, and let our voices be heard.
Here at www.fightfoca.com, is a very informative website. You can click on the video of Obama's speech to the Planned Parenthood group, where he promised that the first thing he would do if elected President, would be to sign the Freedom Of Choice Act. He isn't even in the White House yet, and made a statement last night that he will go forward with his plans to sign this outrageous bill. He still can change his mind because the Bill cannot be signed until he is actually the President.
May God have mercy on our country for the sake of the millions who would never agree with this Bill if they fully understood all that it encompasses. Please click on the web site above. It will take less than a minute of your time and doesn't cost anything.
Thank you Jan for your wonderful words. I think this is outrageous, I thought this issue was settled and now we have Obama promising to make what I would call murder legal. I believe a woman has a right to choose BUT I also believe if you didn't want to be pregnant you should have kept your legs closed. I understand that there are other circumstances such as rape, risk to health and so on that woman feel the need for abortions and it is every womans choice to do what she feels is right for her. But with a society that is using abortion as birth control I think passing this will allow women to do unspeakable acts that they would not even allow to happen to animals but will happily do it to another human being. It's just not right.
