Fight FOCA (Unlimited Abortion) Sign the Fight FOCA Petition ASAP Get Involved!!
Fight the Freedom of Choice Act ^

Posted on 11/05/2008 8:06:17 PM PST by cpforlife.org

Sign the Fight FOCA Petition

Barack Obama made a promise.

Last year before the Planned Parenthood Action Fund, Barack Obama told pro-abortion activists:

The first thing I’d do as President is sign the Freedom of Choice Act.

SEE THE VIDEO IN THE RIGHT SIDEBAR (scroll down) —->

With a single stroke of the pen, the Freedom of Choice Act (FOCA) would establish the right to abortion as a fundamental right (like the right to free speech) and wipe away every restriction on abortion nationwide.

Twenty Senators (including Sen. Barack Obama) and 109 U.S. Representatives have co-sponsored this "Freedom of Choice Act." The stated aim of this legislation is to "end the abortion wars."

To these legislators, "ending the abortion wars" means allowing abortion for any reason, at any time, without any restriction or any regulation. This would eradicate state and federal laws that the majority of Americans support.

FOCA would erase these laws and prevent states from enacting similar protective measures in the future.

Americans United for Life (AUL), a pro-life law and policy organization, has prepared an analysis of the "Freedom of Choice Act." Please click here to read AUL Vice President & Legal Director Denise Burke’s analysis of this horrendous legislation.

Please add your name to the Fight FOCA petition and let your friends know about Barack Obama’s promise to expand abortion throughout the country.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Fight FOCA Petition

I oppose the Freedom of Choice Act (FOCA), because:

--FOCA is a radical attempt to enshrine abortion-on-demand into American law;

--FOCA seeks to sweep aside existing, protective laws that I and the majority of Americans support;

--FOCA will prevent states from enacting protective measures in the future.

Freepers and Lurkers:

Please go to the website, sign the petition, save the site to your favorites, forward the website to EVERYONE, talk about this with family and friends.

We need a MASSIVE grassroots effort to stop this horrendous legislation from happening.

It won’t just elevate murder by abortion to the same “Constitutional Right” as Free Speech, it will give the cult of death new fuel to promote euthanasia, assisted suicide cloning genetic engineering and a host of other evils.

The lives of the unborn are not the only ones at stake here. It will hit all of us.

Obama believes he has a mandate, has shown us with the choice of Rahm Emmanuel how he plans to rule, and you think he’s going to cower in the face of an internet petition?

If Obama is serious about bringing the country together, signing that bill would be one of the dumbest things he could do.

S. 1173

To protect, consistent with Roe v. Wade, a woman's freedom to choose to bear a child or terminate a pregnancy, and for other purposes.

IN THE SENATE OF THE UNITED STATES

April 19, 2007

Mrs. BOXER (for herself, Mrs. MURRAY, Ms. STABENOW, Mr. BINGAMAN, Mr. MENENDEZ, Mr. LAUTENBERG, Mr. CARDIN, Mr. SCHUMER, Mrs. CLINTON, Mrs. FEINSTEIN, Ms. MIKULSKI, Mr. BAUCUS, and Ms. CANTWELL) introduced the following bill; which was read twice and referred to the Committee on the Judiciary


A BILL

To protect, consistent with Roe v. Wade, a woman's freedom to choose to bear a child or terminate a pregnancy, and for other purposes.

    Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled,

SECTION 1. SHORT TITLE.

    This Act may be cited as the `Freedom of Choice Act'.

SEC. 2. FINDINGS.

    Congress finds the following:

      (1) The United States was founded on core principles, such as liberty, personal privacy, and equality, which ensure that individuals are free to make their most intimate decisions without governmental interference and discrimination.

      (2) One of the most private and difficult decisions an individual makes is whether to begin, prevent, continue, or terminate a pregnancy. Those reproductive health decisions are best made by women, in consultation with their loved ones and health care providers.

      (3) In 1965, in Griswold v. Connecticut (381 U.S. 479), and in 1973, in Roe v. Wade (410 U.S. 113) and Doe v. Bolton (410 U.S. 179), the Supreme Court recognized that the right to privacy protected by the Constitution encompasses the right of every woman to weigh the personal, moral, and religious considerations involved in deciding whether to begin, prevent, continue, or terminate a pregnancy.

      (4) The Roe v. Wade decision carefully balances the rights of women to make important reproductive decisions with the State's interest in potential life. Under Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton, the right to privacy protects a woman's decision to choose to terminate her pregnancy prior to fetal viability, with the State permitted to ban abortion after fetal viability except when necessary to protect a woman's life or health.

      (5) These decisions have protected the health and lives of women in the United States. Prior to the Roe v. Wade decision in 1973, an estimated 1,200,000 women each year were forced to resort to illegal abortions, despite the risk of unsanitary conditions, incompetent treatment, infection, hemorrhage, disfiguration, and death. Before Roe, it is estimated that thousands of women died annually in the United States as a result of illegal abortions.

      (6) In countries in which abortion remains illegal, the risk of maternal mortality is high. According to the World Health Organization, of the approximately 600,000 pregnancy-related deaths occurring annually around the world, 80,000 are associated with unsafe abortions.

      (7) The Roe v. Wade decision also expanded the opportunities for women to participate equally in society. In 1992, in Planned Parenthood v. Casey (505 U.S. 833), the Supreme Court observed that, `[t]he ability of women to participate equally in the economic and social life of the Nation has been facilitated by their ability to control their reproductive lives.'.

      (8) Even though the Roe v. Wade decision has stood for more than 34 years, there are increasing threats to reproductive health and freedom emerging from all branches and levels of government. In 2006, South Dakota became the first State in more than 15 years to enact a ban on abortion in nearly all circumstances. Supporters of this ban have admitted it is an attempt to directly challenge Roe in the courts. Other States are considering similar bans.

      (9) Further threatening Roe, the Supreme Court recently upheld the first-ever Federal ban on an abortion procedure, which has no exception to protect a woman's health. The majority decision in Gonzales v. Carhart (05-380, slip op. April 18, 2007) and Gonzales v. Planned Parenthood Federation of America fails to protect a woman's health, a core tenet of Roe v. Wade. Dissenting in that case, Justice Ginsburg called the majority's opinion `alarming', and stated that, `[f]or the first time since Roe, the Court blesses a prohibition with no exception safeguarding a woman's health'. Further, she said, the Federal ban `and the Court's defense of it cannot be understood as anything other than an effort to chip away at a right declared again and again by this Court'.

      (10) Legal and practical barriers to the full range of reproductive services endanger women's health and lives. Incremental restrictions on the right to choose imposed by Congress and State legislatures have made access to reproductive care extremely difficult, if not impossible, for many women across the country. Currently, 87 percent of the counties in the United States have no abortion provider.

      (11) While abortion should remain safe and legal, women should also have more meaningful access to family planning services that prevent unintended pregnancies, thereby reducing the need for abortion.

      (12) To guarantee the protections of Roe v. Wade, Federal legislation is necessary.

      (13) Although Congress may not create constitutional rights without amending the Constitution, Congress may, where authorized by its enumerated powers and not prohibited by the Constitution, enact legislation to create and secure statutory rights in areas of legitimate national concern.

      (14) Congress has the affirmative power under section 8 of article I of the Constitution and section 5 of the 14th amendment to the Constitution to enact legislation to facilitate interstate commerce and to prevent State interference with interstate commerce, liberty, or equal protection of the laws.

      (15) Federal protection of a woman's right to choose to prevent or terminate a pregnancy falls within this affirmative power of Congress, in part, because--

        (A) many women cross State lines to obtain abortions and many more would be forced to do so absent a constitutional right or Federal protection;

        (B) reproductive health clinics are commercial actors that regularly purchase medicine, medical equipment, and other necessary supplies from out-of-State suppliers; and

        (C) reproductive health clinics employ doctors, nurses, and other personnel who travel across State lines in order to provide reproductive health services to patients.

SEC. 3. DEFINITIONS.

    In this Act:

      (1) GOVERNMENT- The term `government' includes a branch, department, agency, instrumentality, or official (or other individual acting under color of law) of the United States, a State, or a subdivision of a State.

      (2) STATE- The term `State' means each of the States, the District of Columbia, the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, and each territory or possession of the United States.

      (3) VIABILITY- The term `viability' means that stage of pregnancy when, in the best medical judgment of the attending physician based on the particular medical facts of the case before the physician, there is a reasonable likelihood of the sustained survival of the fetus outside of the woman.

SEC. 4. INTERFERENCE WITH REPRODUCTIVE HEALTH PROHIBITED.

    (a) Statement of Policy- 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.

    (b) Prohibition of Interference- A government may not--

      (1) deny or interfere with a woman's right to choose--

        (A) to bear a child;

        (B) to terminate a pregnancy prior to viability; or

        (C) to terminate a pregnancy after viability where termination is necessary to protect the life or health of the woman; or

      (2) discriminate against the exercise of the rights set forth in paragraph (1) in the regulation or provision of benefits, facilities, services, or information.

    (c) Civil Action- An individual aggrieved by a violation of this section may obtain appropriate relief (including relief against a government) in a civil action.

SEC. 5. SEVERABILITY.

    If any provision of this Act, or the application of such provision to any person or circumstance, is held to be unconstitutional, the remainder of this Act, or the application of such provision to persons or circumstances other than those as to which the provision is held to be unconstitutional, shall not be affected thereby.

SEC. 6. RETROACTIVE EFFECT.

    This Act applies to every Federal, State, and local statute, ordinance, regulation, administrative order, decision, policy, practice, or other action enacted, adopted, or implemented before, on, or after the date of enactment of this Act.

There has to be a starting point. There has to be a mechanism to spread the word and get people involved.

This petition and the website is a project of http://www.aulaction.org/

“AUL Action is the legislative arm of Americans United for Life (AUL). The first national pro-life organization in America, AUL has been committed to defending human life through vigorous judicial, legislative, and educational efforts at both the federal and state levels since 1971. In addition, AUL has been involved in every pro-life case before the Supreme Court since Roe v. Wade.”

These people have a plan and know what they are doing.

ChocChipCookie, if you have any better ideas lets hear them. Otherwise keep your negative attitude to yourself, it does not help the cause.

“If Obama is serious about bringing the country together, signing that bill would be one of the dumbest things he could do.”

Øbama was NEVER speaking truthfully during the campaign, except to Joe the Plumber and on a few rare occasions.

His goal is to render America into an impotent socialist european state. Or worse.

It ain't going to happen if the 57+ million Americans who voted against him stand strong and bring more to the fold, which will quickly happen when they see how bad he is.

That's why we have to solidify quickly and battle against him every step of the way.

Human sacrifice is a MUST for the new President to thank his god. FOCA is first on his agenda.

It’s bizarre someone might sign FOCA and wouldn’t even be a true citizen.

Here is where this matters: because these people in the womb would be legal citizens.

I didn’t think of this, I think (not positive) I heard the Mike Gallagher show and other shows, where everyone is saying “drop the birth certificate issue.” But if someone is signing FOCA, really, it is pertinent. I’d think those unborn would have “legal standing” on this as well.

This would radically change the abortion debate. The incremental pro-life strategy, which has borne fruit, will be over. There won’t be anything left for pro life people to do. I suspect sidewalk protests would quickly become illegal.

I predict this bill would lead to violence against abortion centers and doctors. After all, there wouldn’t be any way left to work within the law.

PLEASE, let me know if you are reading this and if you’ve signed the petition.

This is one of the most important things going on right now and the response is not good.

Second Ping.

I don’t think they care what the people think -

they’re going to ram through everything they can in the next two years.

More about FoCA -

Doctors, pharmacists, and hospitals are REQUIRED to provide “services” or lose their licenses, regardless of religious or conscience objections.

YOU will be forced, through taxes, to pay for all abortions for those that “can’t afford” them.

Abortion alternative organizations will be defunded and heavily regulated (to what end? what other possible end could there be but to increase abortions?)

Signed it and will pass it on. I kept telling people over and over this would happen, but noooo, they went and voted for evil. Thanks for keeping on top of this, cpforlife.

Alright y'all thanks. This is a start.

I'm hammering on a strategy right now that goes well beyond this petition and hearing back from people helps my spirit.

We need to pray that FOCA will never be law. It's the final demonic conclusion to Roe. But we have to be ready to work together to stop it. We stopped Amnesty last year, we can do this.

He'll sign it ... He sponsored it.

All that rhetoric about bringing the country together is just bulldroppings.

He's lying ... as usual. What's Hussein going to lie about next?

I Corinthians 3:16-20
16Don't you know that you yourselves are God's temple and that God's Spirit lives in you?
17If anyone destroys God's temple, God will destroy him; for God's temple is sacred, and you are that temple.

18Do not deceive yourselves. If any one of you thinks he is wise by the standards of this age, he should become a "fool" so that he may become wise.
19For the wisdom of this world is foolishness in God's sight. As it is written: "He catches the wise in their craftiness"[a];
20and again, "The Lord knows that the thoughts of the wise are futile."[b]


How long until God acts on this promise? All you pro-lifers out there, please pray for it.

Here in Colorado, people overwhelmingly voted down the measure to define life at the point of conception. I will pray every day for the above scripture to be actualized as the prophet Jonah called for repentance and there was none, metaphorically speaking.

I think the closest the media ever got to acknowledging 0bama's real stance on abortion was that some of them published the following cartoons:

I definitely signed it and have posted it at Facebook and Myspace pages (and anywhere else it might get visibility).

Planning to make my own personal bumper sticker as well.

Thanks CP!

so now my name is on another list.
and they may come take us all out of our beds in the dark of night for actions such as this.
that’s ok.
It will only hurt for a little while.

But, when I stand naked before my Creator on that great and terrible day,
(and what an ugly sight THAT will be)
I will at least be able to say that I was willing to give it all for those who could not speak for themselves.
