Pro-Abortion Legislation

Here is Archbishop John Nienstedt of St. Paul-Minneapolis speaking of a bill that will be brought before Congress in January called the 'Freedom of Choice Act.' Scary stuff! It would not be a bad idea to start contacting your Congressional representatives if you are concerned by this.

"It would also do away with a large number of existing state laws on abortion, substantially impede the ability of states to regulate abortion, and override nearly 40 years of jurisprudential experience on the subject of abortion."

"Legal experts say it would likely invalidate informed consent laws, parental notification laws, laws promoting maternal health -- if they result in an increased cost for abortions, abortion clinic regulations -- even those designed to make abortion safer for women, laws prohibiting a particular abortion procedure -- such as partial-birth abortion, and laws requiring that abortions only be performed by a licensed physician."

"In effect, FOCA would certainly be a boon to the abortion industry with the government forced to condone and promote such procedures... Now is the time to reduce, not increase, the incidence of abortion. Now is the time to work for the defeat of the Freedom of Choice Act."
