Fight FOCA

This was sent to me:

{Hey everyone, it only took me just a minute to follow the link and sign this. If you haven't read about the Freedom of Choice Act before, it is worth looking into.

Dear Family and Friends
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, also allowing babies who are born alive due to botched 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 and most of the ones that do, have things like cleft palates, club feet, things that are correctable).

This Bill could also make it mandatory for
doctors and nurses to perform this murderous 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 horrible murder of innocent babies. They have also told Obama that if he persists in signing this Bill which would require even Catholic Hospitals to perform these acts of murder, they will have no choice but to close all 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.
This is a great, 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.

Please let your family and friends know about this Bill and ask them to also sign this petition. Please click on the web site below. It will take less than a minute of your time, doesn't cost anything and God will bless you for standing up for Him and His commandment, "Thou shalt not kill."

"The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is that good people do nothing" Click on the link below to sign petition:}

I'm not sure about the Catholic hospitals closing, but Obama did say that he would sign this ACT. I'm sure, to make a big difference, the Fight FOCA site is going to need more signatures. They currently only have 596,921.

Here's the info about it from PolitiFact -

Barack Obama Campaign Promise No. 501:
Sign the Freedom of Choice Act

"Throughout my career, I've been a consistent and strong supporter of reproductive justice, and have consistently had a 100% pro-choice rating with Planned Parenthood and NARAL Pro-Choice America. ... And I will continue to defend this right by passing the Freedom of Choice Act as president."

This is the thing that worries me. While the country is wrapped up in the euphoria of a political change, Obama is quickly passing orders that will have long reaching effects on many of us.

What a shame that the promise doesn't appear to be true!
