Beware the "Freedom of Choice" Act!
The so-called Freedom of Choice Act (FOCA), if enacted into law, would enshrine the Roe vs. Wade decision into federal law and would overturn every limitation on abortion that federal, state, and local governments have ever enacted. This legislation is the top item on the wish list of radical pro-abortion groups like NARAL and Planned Parenthood, and President Obama pledged to support it during the presidential campaign. For a while conservatives feared that advocates of FOCA, sensing the controversial nature of the bill, would try to enact the legislation stealthily in a piece-by-piece manner. However, there is now growing concern that liberal hubris will lead to a full frontal attack on pro-life policies by pushing FOCA through Congress. This legislation the nuclear bomb of the pro-abortion agenda and must be stopped! Call your representative and both your senators today and urge them to oppose the Freedom of Choice Act!
Keep checking the FOCA category at AdvanceUSA Blog for recent updates. Also check the general Pro-Life category. Americans Unite for Life have a helpful resource called FightFOCA.com where you can learn more and also sign a petition to oppose this dangerous bill.
Pro-Life Riders and Executive Orders Need to Be Protected
Over the years numerous provisions have been either issued by presidents or Congress which take steps to advance the pro-life agenda by providing limited protections for the unborn or restricting the use of tax dollars for abortion. Under the new administration, pro-life executive orders from past presidents and pro-life provisions in federal law (riders) will likely be under threat. Already, President Obama has overturned President Bush's restrictions on the use of tax dollars for unethical and ineffective embryonic stem cell research and he has also destroyed the long-standing Mexico City Policy which had prohibited tax dollars from supporting overseas organizations which promote or provide abortions. Pro-lifers must be vigilant in order to preserve these important pro-life provisions. Check out the Pro-Life category at AdvanceUSA Blog for more information (particularly the Taxpayer Funding of Abortion category). See how your Congressman and Senators voted on these issues here.
Take Positive Pro-Life Action: Pregnancy Centers Need Your Help!

Pregnancy Centers across America are helping women contemplating abortion make the choice for life. By offering counsel, practical assistance, and love these pro-life organizations are making a difference one life at a time.
Care Net is an organization that advocates for and gives assistance to pregnancy centers across the nation. Care Net can help frightened mothers find a pregnancy center near them and offers free 24-hour counseling with a call to their Option Line resource.
