Life Advocates Challenge Obama over Pro-Abortion Priorities
Americans United for Life Action is calling on Sen. Barack Obama to explain why he opposes parental-involvement laws, which are designed to protect girls from sexual predators.
The letter to Obama recounts the true story of a 14-year-old Cincinnati girl who was impregnated by her 21-year-old soccer coach. The coach, who signed in place of her parents for her to have an abortion, is in jail.
Charmaine Yoest, president and CEO of AUL Action, said the story underscores the need for parental-involvement laws.
Yet, according to a promise made to Planned Parenthood, the first thing Obama would do as president is sign the Freedom of Choice Act — a sweeping piece of legislation that could wipe away every federal, state and local law limiting or regulating abortion.
“I’d like to know why it he supports such radical legislation that would make it impossible for us to put any limitations whatsoever on abortion,” Yoest said.
