House Republicans ask Obama to disavow ‘FOCA agenda’
Washington DC, Jan 23, 2009 / 05:48 am (CNA).- More than 100 Republican members of the U.S. House of Representatives have signed a letter to President Barack Obama asking that he withdraw his campaign pledge to sign the Freedom of Choice Act (FOCA) and other pro-abortion rights laws.
FOCA is legislation designed to protect abortion rights even if the Supreme Court decision Roe v. Wade is overturned. It threatens to abolish existing minimal state and federal restrictions on abortion and could even threaten the rights of Catholic hospitals to refuse to perform abortions. Article
I find this encouraging and I believe that this is the result of our postcards, emails, and phone calls to our congressmen. It’s important that we continue to let them know how we feel about FOCA and Obama’s pro-death agenda.
