One example out of many:
Barack Obama supports the extreme Freedom of Choice Act (FOCA). If enacted, FOCA would obliterate hundreds of state laws that protect women, parents, children, and health care workers, while forcing taxpayers to foot the bill for millions of abortions. It would overturn commonsense laws like parental notification, conscience protections, abortion waiting periods, informed consent, and regulations for women's health: http://www.lifenews.com/nat4056.html
Estimates are that if Obama becomes President and signs FOCA it will lead to 125,000 more abortions each year: http://www.lifenews.com/nat4359.html
As many of us have read repeatedly by now, in his July 17, 2007 speech to the Planned Parenthood Action Fund, Obama said,
We know that a woman's right to make a decision about how many children she wants to have and when — without government interference — is one of the most fundamental freedoms we have in this country. . . . I have worked on this issue for decades now. I put Roe at the center of my lesson plan on reproductive freedom when I taught constitutional law. . . So, you know where I stand. . . The first thing I'd do as president is sign the Freedom of Choice Act. That's the first thing that I'd do.Is that who you want for President? A man who is so dedicated to abortion being without restrictions or safeguards, a man who is so adamantly opposed to states' rights, a man who is so opposed to any attempts to protect unborn children, that his promised first order of business as your President would be to sign the radical Freedom of Choice Act?
As a mother, I simply cannot vote for this man, for this reason alone. Then there are, of course, many other reasons. Please follow the link I've posted and consider these matters carefully and prayerfully.
