Editorial: The Freedom of Choice Act

The first order of business after Barack Obama becomes President is to kill babies. If you have been following what Obama has publicly announced just recently, he said the first thing he is going to do as President of the United States is sign the Freedom of Choice Act. The Freedom of Choice Act is a bill that will promote abortion-on-demand into American law regardless of what laws already exist.

Americans United For Life (AUL) the first national pro-life organization in America since 1971 has taken it upon themselves to promote a petition which will urge state legislatures to adopt a resolution against this Freedom of Choice Act that President Obama wants to sign.

According to the AUL’s President and CEO, Dr Charmaine Yoest says “The so-called ‘Freedom of Choice Act’ endangers women’s health. It protects and promotes the abortion industry, sacrifices the health of women to radical political ideology and silences the voices of everyday Americans who want to engage in a meaningful public discussion on abortion”.

It was also noted by AUL Action Vice President of Legal Affairs that, ”The Freedom of Choice Act will invalidate common-sense, protective laws that the majority of Americans support including parental involvement, bans on partial-birth abortion and protections for healthcare providers who object to participating in abortions.”
AUL’s model resolution emphasizes that FOCA would nullify more than 550 federal and state laws related to abortion, undermine the right and responsibility of the States and the people to determine abortion policy, and circumvent the States’ general legislative authority as guaranteed by the 10th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.
In the case of Catholic Hospitals, Catholic Bishops have pleaded with Obama not to sign this Bill which would require even Catholic Hospitals to perform these acts of murder; otherwise they will have no choice but to close all Catholic Hospitals.
If this Bill is signed then teenagers will be able to get an abortion without parents’ consent, babies who survive botched, late term abortions will be set aside without any medical care or nourishment to die. Even animals are treated more humane when they are put to sleep.
This is an unbelievable scenario. How can we live with ourselves knowing our national leaders are signing bills to kill the unborn who want a chance at life? How can we let this happen in our country? We are a God-fearing people and this is just outright murder.
I am reminded of a quote from a wise person who said: "The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is that good people do nothing". Call your local Congressman and tell them you are apposed to this Freedom of Choice Act so we can all retire at night with the peace of mind that we won’t force anyone to kill babies. We’ll all sleep better, I’m sure.
