When you saw those initials, did you immediately recognize them?

Did they mean anything to you?

If you said no, don't worry. I didn't immediately recognize them either. But, when I read the article and visited the Freedom of Choice Act Website, I was reminded instantly of what I had read in a newspaper article only a few short months ago: that it was the Bill that President-Elect Obama had said would be his very first priority to sign when he was elected.

I personally did not vote for Mr. Obama, because his principles do not, in any way, align with my own. However, now that our country has chosen him to lead, I am praying for him, and those who will serve under him--that they all will make good choices concerning the future of this great country.

Whether or not you did or did not vote for Mr. Obama matters to me not. That was your decision, and I am glad you exercised your right as an American citizen--a right that many others bled and died to give you.

I am not trying to take a political stand here, with this post. I am simply doing what I feel is my part in sharing information, in case you are unaware yourself, as I was, about this Bill, in hopes of protecting the most innocent of our American citizens--the unborn.

This terrible piece of legislation called "The Freedom of Choice Act" would establish abortion as a fundamental right (like the right to free speech or the right to vote). It would wipe away every restriction on abortion nationwide, including bans on partial birth abortion. It will eradicate state and federal abortion laws that are currently in place--laws that the majority of Americans have already voted to support, such as a minor needing parental consent before an abortion were to take place. It would prevent states from enacting similar protective measures in the future. And, it means that some of your taxpayer dollars would go to fund abortion--whether you support it or not.

You can help do your part to protect the unborn. You can take two minutes to read and sign the "Fight FOCA" petition at their website, and then you can tell others to do the same.
