WASHINGTON, D.C., June 10, 2008 (LifeSiteNews.com) - Barack Obama, the presumptive pro-abortion nominee of the Democratic Party, has plans to reward the allies that helped him topple Hillary Clinton from her throne by making total unrestricted abortion in the United States his number one priority as president.
In light of Obama's recently achieved status as the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee, Focus on the Family's CitizenLink has decided to remind its supporters that almost one year has passed since Obama made his vows to the Planned Parenthood Action Fund that abortion would be the first priority of his administration.
"The first thing I'd do as president is sign the Freedom of Choice Act," Obama said in his July speech to abortion advocates worried about the increase of pro-life legislation at the state level.
The Freedom of Choice Act (FOCA) is legislation Obama has co-sponsored along with 18 other senators that would annihilate every single state law limiting or regulating abortion, including the federal ban on partial birth abortion.
The 2007 version of FOCA proposed: "It is the policy of the United States that every woman has the fundamental right to choose to bear a child, to terminate a pregnancy prior to fetal viability, or to terminate a pregnancy after fetal viability when necessary to protect the life or health of the woman."
Obama made his remarks in a question-and-answer session after delivering a speech crystallizing for abortion advocates his deep-seated abortion philosophy and his belief that federal legislation will break pro-life resistance and end the national debate on abortion.

"I am absolutely convinced that culture wars are so nineties; their days are growing dark, it is time to turn the page," Obama said in July. "We want a new day here in America. We're tired about arguing about the same ole' stuff. And I am convinced we can win that argument."
Besides making abortion on demand a "fundamental right" throughout the United States, FOCA would effectively nullify informed consent laws, waiting periods, health safety regulations for abortion clinics, etc.
Furthermore, medical professionals and institutions that refused abortions also would lose legal protections. FOCA would expose individuals, organizations, and governments - including federal, state, and local government agencies - to costly civil actions for purported violations of the act.
"Thirty-five years after Roe, abortion supporters, like Senator Obama, are dismayed that abortion remains a divisive issue and that their radical agenda has not been submissively accepted by the American public," states Denise M. Burke, vice president of Americans United for Life.
"Rather than confronting legitimate issues concerning the availability and safety of abortion, they choose to blatantly ignore the concerns and interests of everyday Americans, as well as the growing evidence that abortion hurts women."
Hillary Clinton, once the longtime Democratic front-runner and anticipated abortion president, conceded defeat last Saturday to Obama, who captured the nomination from her after a long and bitter campaign.
Obama has won the crucial endorsement of abortion activist Frances Kissling, who broke from the ranks of other radical feminist leaders earlier this year to endorse Obama, saying Obama, not Clinton, would better use the bully pulpit of the presidency to accomplish their aims and end the culture wars over abortion.

And *I* want a law that finally settles the debate about Negroes being persons in this land. Enough of this nonsense about equal rights and their right to exist!
What a stupid, stupid, EVIL man Obama is! It’ll be very hard for me to pray for anything other than his demise if he wins in November.
I see Obama is employing Algore's "clever" tactic - avoid further debate by declaring that the debate is over.

I’ve forwarded to other non-freepers. Thanks for the post.
GOOD! Now everyone knows his true colors. Get out the vote for McCain.
“What a stupid, stupid, EVIL man Obama is!”
What a stupid, stupid, EVIL people are they who vote for him.
But of course there's no difference between Obama and McCain.
Evil little man.
May the abomination of desloation never get to stand where it ought not.
This is a declaration of war.
I think you just got it.
More "Negro" babies are aborted than any other group.
That being said, he must have learned that from Rev Wright's church! You know, the one where they teach their members to hate whitey? Guess they teach them to hate babies too. I can't vouch for his Christianity, but I do know the Scripture where the Lord warned people against hurting little children. He will meet the wrath of God in the next life because of helping women to kill their babies.
>>>>GOOD! Now everyone knows his true colors. Get out the vote for McCain.
Sorry, McQueeg has already shown and demonstrated his complete disdain for the letter of the Constitution and his utter contempt for the the rule of law. He is a shameless serial liar.
His many serious assaults on American civil government greatly outweigh whatever he may think about abortion.
Will the American people vote for O-bortion on demand? I'm thinking no. He really put his foot in it here. Real fodder for a pro-life "Swift-boat" campaign.
All of us better wise up to that fact. Make no mistake, Obama is evil.
I’m beginning to think he is the devil himself!
Like many people today, Obama is a smorgasbordeist. He believes in God (giving him the benefit of the doubt there) but beyond that, he selects those portions of the faith that are agreeable to him and rejects those that don’t suit. The Christian belief that homosexuality is an abomination, or the idea that killing unborn babies is murder -— these are off his plate.
Cafeteria style Christianity.
