Freedom of Choice Act (FOCA)

Freedom of Choice Act (FOCA)

Hey friends, whether or not you support Obama, you have got to understand completely what he supports and plans to enforce. His “change” platform is for real. This e-mail is about the revived “Freedom of Choice Act” that is currently in Congress and will come up for a vote. Below is what is behind the bill and what it really means. I believe we will be held accountable for our votes and who we put in office. As a result, these officials appoint judges to the Supreme Court. It matters who we put in office.

I have included links where you can sign a petition to protest the signing of this bill. There is more to it than you think. Don’t be fooled.

Did you know Obama calls abortion at any level, “Reproductive Justice.”

WE NEED TO WAKE UP AND TAKE ACTION. WE HAVE BEEN SILENT TOO LONG, MYSELF INCLUDED. PLEASE JOIN IN MY EFFORTS TO SPREAD THE TRUTH ABOUT THIS DANGEROUS PIECE OF LEGISLATION AROUND THE UNITED STATES TODAY. TIME IS CRITICAL.

“Freedom of Choice Act” FOCA

“The first thing I’d do as president is sign the Freedom of Choice Act.  That’s the first thing that I’d do.”  — Senator Barack Obama, speaking to the Planned Parenthood Action Fund, July 17, 2007

“Throughout my career, I’ve been a consistent and strong supporter of reproductive justice, and have consistently had a 100% pro-choice rating with Planned Parenthood and NARAL Pro-Choice America.”

WHAT IS FOCA?

Pro-Abortion Senators Propose Bill to Invalidate All Limits on Abortion at the Federal, State and Local Levels. The bill is S. 2020. also know as S.1173, H.R. 1964 and S.1173.

Hosted by Senator Barbara Boxer (D-Ca.), the so-called “Freedom of Choice Act” (FOCA) was endorsed by leaders of NARAL, the Planned Parenthood Federation of America, the National Abortion Federation, NOW, and other groups.

The claim that the bill would ‘codify Roe’ is just a marketing gimmick.

By its actual language, the bill would invalidate any “statute, ordinance, regulation, administrative order, decision, policy, practice, or other action” of any federal, state, or local government or governmental official (or any person acting under government authority) that would “deny or interfere with” a woman’s right to abortion.

This no-restriction policy would establish, in Boxer’s words, “the absolute right to choose” prior to fetal “viability.”

These no-restriction policies would apply to any type of abortion, including partial-birth abortion.

A poor woman would not be denied the use of Medicaid if she chooses to have an abortion.” In other words, state governments and the federal government would be mandated to fund abortion with taxpayer money.

WHAT DOES IT MEAN?

In a press release issued on January 22 , Senator Boxer gave a number of examples of current laws that would be invalidated by the bill, including:

* Laws restricting government funding of abortion.

* Laws prohibiting abortions in public hospitals.

* Laws requiring that girls and women seeking abortion receive certain information on matters such as fetal development and alternatives to abortion

* All laws allowing doctors, nurses, or other state-licensed professionals, and hospitals or other health-care institutions, to conscientiously object to performing or participating in abortions.

* All laws requiring notification to, or consent of, a parent or judge before an abortion is performed on a minor.

* All laws prohibiting medical personnel other than licensed physicians from performing abortions.

* Any law or any action by any government official that would “discriminate against the exercise of” the abortion right in the regulation or provision of any “benefits, facilities, services, or information.”

*  Any statement or action by any government official, including any elected official, and any government program of any kind, could be legally attacked if someone thought it discriminated against abortion. This sweeping mandate would cover everything from rural health clinics, to health education programs in public schools, to pro-life speeches by public officials.

*  Prohibits any government actions that would “deny or interfere with a woman’s right to choose to bear a child,” but Boxer and the groups gave no examples of any laws that would be invalidated by that provision.

Those promoting this bill intend it to be a litmus test for those who hold or seek congressional office, and a fund-raising tool – they know they have no hope of passing it while the President and the leadership of both houses of Congress are pro-life.” THAT’S WHY THEY WANT OBAMA.

President Clinton, a FOCA supporter.

The original FOCA faded from view after Republicans took control of the House of Representatives in the 1994 election. GET THE LIBRALS OUT.

Obama is one of the very few pro-choice advocates who accepts no restrictions on late-term abortions, or any kind of abortions. No instance can be found in his entire career in which he voted for any regulation or restriction on the practice of abortion.

  

Barack Obama’s “Freedom of Choice Act” Would Mean 125K More Abortions

by Matt Bowman
September 24, 2008
With so much attention on the economy, one area of federal legislation that can be overlooked is abortion. An old and dangerous bill that will increase abortions by an enormous amount is being resurrected by abortion advocates: the Freedom of Choice Act (FOCA). H.R. 1964 and S.1173.

FOCA is usually reported as “codifying Roe v. Wade,” but it is much more.

FOCA means no restrictions.

Specifically, if FOCA is passed it will increase abortions by 125,000 more per year in the United States. Since 2004,

FOCA will strike down other laws, state and federal, that reduce abortions, and will force states to facilitate abortions. 125,000 more abortions is only the tip of the FOCA iceberg.

FOCA is indeed a staggering expansion of abortion, both in principle and in actual lives lost.

Obama Statement on 35th Anniversary of Roe v. Wade Decision

Chicago, IL | January 22, 2008

Chicago, IL — Senator Barack Obama today released the following statement on the 35th anniversary of the Roe v. Wade decision.

“Thirty-five years after the Supreme Court decided Roe v. Wade, it’s never been more important to protect a woman’s right to choose. Last year, the Supreme Court decided by a vote of 5-4 to uphold the Federal Abortion Ban, and in doing so undermined an important principle of Roe v. Wade: that we must always protect women’s health. With one more vacancy on the Supreme Court, we could be looking at a majority hostile to a women’s fundamental right to choose for the first time since Roe v. Wade. The next president may be asked to nominate that Supreme Court justice. That is what is at stake in this election.

“Throughout my career, I’ve been a consistent and strong supporter of reproductive justice, and have consistently had a 100% pro-choice rating with Planned Parenthood and NARAL Pro-Choice America.

 

 

“When South Dakota passed a law banning all abortions in a direct effort to have Roe overruled, I was the only candidate for President to raise money to help the citizens of South Dakota repeal that law. When anti-choice protesters blocked the opening of an Illinois Planned Parenthood clinic in a community where affordable health care is in short supply, I was the only candidate for President who spoke out against it. And I will continue to defend this right by passing the Freedom of Choice Act as president.

“But we also know that Roe v. Wade is about more than a woman’s right to choose; it’s about equality. It’s about whether our daughters are going to have the same opportunities as our sons. And so to truly honor that decision, we need to update the social contract so that women can free themselves, and their children, from violent relationships.”
