Truncated Freedom!

In November 2008, the full body of bishops voted unanimously to mobilize the resources of the USCCB, dioceses and the entire Catholic community to: retain current pro-life laws and policies, and oppose the federal funding and promotion of abortion, including the so-called ‘Freedom of Choice Act’ (FOCA) or any similar pro-abortion measure,” according to the pro-life committee’s section on the USCCB web site.

"I believe it is incumbent on all of us who are Catholic citizens to let our representatives know of our concerns about FOCA so that a bad and harmful law will not be passed. You can sign a postcard, write a thoughtful letter, make a phone call, send an e-mail, meet with your Representatives and Senators’ staff so that the dangerous extremes in this law might be eliminated."
Most Reverend Daniel F. Walsh,Bishop of Santa Rosa

Citing a recent national poll showing that just 9% of U.S. adults support abortion for any reason throughout the nine months of pregnancy, the USCCB’s pro-life committee says, “The national postcard campaign will send a timely message to Congress that abortion advocates are out of step with mainstream America, and that their agenda should not become a part of our nation’s laws in any way.

The FOCA is the next sick chapter in the book of abortion. If made a law then all limitations on abortion will be lifted which will result in the following:

1) All hospitals, including Catholic hospitals in the USA, will be required to perform abortions upon request. If this happens Bishops vow to close down all Catholic hospitals, more then
30% of all hospitals in the United States.

2) Partial birth abortions would be legal and have no limitations.

3) All U.S. tax payers would be funding abortions.

4) Parental notification will no longer be required.

5) The number of abortions will increase by a minimum of 100,000 annually. This is an estimation.Needless to say this information is disturbing, but sadly true. As Catholics, as Christians, as anyone who is against the needless killing of innocent children, we must stand as one.

We must stop this horrific act before it becomes a law.

As an outsider watching the events unfold in your country, things are looking very bleak. Could Obahma be the next Hitler? I agree, the FOCA (abortion on demand) bill needs to be stopped.
