AZ Right to Life: Obama on abortion

Dear Friends of Life,

Every year in January we remember that dark day when Roe v Wade was decided and millions of unborn children were stripped of their basic human rights. However, since that decision pro-lifers have made important gains in the legislative arena to protect unborn children:
  • 35 states have passed laws requiring minors to obtain the consent of either their parents or a judge before having an abortion. (Source)
  • 33 States have passed laws requiring women obtaining an abortion to receive medically accurate, unbiased information about both abortion and their unborn child before they have an abortion. (Source)
  • In April of 2007 the United States Supreme Court upheld the Federal Partial Birth Abortion Ban which outlawed this gruesome procedure in all 50 states.
  • Through the Hyde Amendment and Mexico City Policy millions of dollars have been withheld from being used to pay for abortions.

In fact, Michael J. New, a professor at the University of Alabama published a 2007 study showing that these laws were directly responsible for the nearly 20% decline in abortions since the early 1990's. But what if with the stroke of a pen it could all be undone?

Watch the chilling video below and see the promise Barack Obama has made to the pro-abortion lobby to pass the so-called "Freedom of Choice Act." The Freedom of Choice Act (FOCA) is the abortion lobby's secret weapon in the event that pro-lifers overturn Roe v Wade because it would codify an unlimited right to abortion in federal law. Specifically:

  • FOCA would invalidate laws requiring parents to consent to minors having abortions, laws that require doctors to provide patients with informed consent and a 24 hour waiting period, laws banning partial birth abortion, and anything else that supposedly "interferes" with a woman's right to obtain an abortion.
  • FOCA would require both the government to publicly fund abortions with your tax dollars because FOCA states that government cannot "discriminate" against abortion in their publicly funded programs. This could increase the abortion rate by 10, 20, or 30% each year.

This is why it is crucial that we must keep pro-abortion politicians like Barack Obama and Nancy Pelosi from controlling the executive and legislative branches and subsequently passing the "Freedom of Choice Act." Tell your friends and family about Obama's pro-abortion extremism before it's too late!
