SPECIAL: Interview with AUL Action's Charmaine Yoest on 'Open Letter to Barack Obama'
Catholic Online ^ | 10/31/08

AUL has always been committed to being nonpartisan and we work very closely with pro-life legislators in both political parties. We have a close working relationship with Democrats for Life and ultimately want to see both parties working to defend life. But the reality we are confronted with is that Senator Barack Obama has a radical record on the life issue. There is, of course, his refusal to vote in support of protection for babies born alive during an abortion which has been so well-documented by Gianna Jessen and at bornalivetruth.org.

Less well-known is his commitment to supporting the Freedom of Choice Act (FOCA)-- a really radical piece of abortion legislation that would wipe out every piece of pro-life abortion-limiting legislation that Americans have passed over the last thirty years -- including common sense legislation that has very high levels of public suport like bans on partial-birth abortion and laws requiring parental involvement.

We hope our letter will draw attention to how important parental involvement laws are in protecting young girls from sexual abuse. We need to keep these laws and rigorously enforce them. But FOCA threatens all legislation that would limit abortions in any way.
