The Freedom of Choice Act

I received this letter in my email this morning. There is some very important information in it for all Americans to consider. If you haven't done so already, please click either the graphic at left or the one in the right sidebar of this blog and sign the petition against FOCA, the Freedom of Choice Act. Pray believing.


Congress is back in session. While they’re currently occupied with trying to revive the economy, they will soon turn their focus to expanding the abortion industry.

Sen. Reid’s recently introduced Prevention First Act, which would greatly expand government funding of abortion (among other things), is but one example. Our legal team is currently studying the text of the bill, and we’ll be posting their analysis at soon.

This Sunday is Sanctity of Life Sunday -- a wonderful way to start a week that includes the presidential inauguration and the annual March for Life. Millions of Americans will go to churches where there will be a special emphasis on the sanctity of human life. Yet many of those Americans haven’t heard about Congress’ plans to expand abortion through the Freedom of Choice Act (FOCA) -- and other bills like it that would eliminate virtually every pro-life law in the country and force taxpayers to help pay for it.

You can help spread the word. It’s easy.

Click here to download a flyer (PDF) about FOCA and print copies for everyone in your congregation. A version with two flyers on a page, suitable for inserting in church bulletins, is also available. Please consider taking the bulletin insert to your priest or pastor as an opportunity for your church to spread the word about FOCA.

As of Tuesday night, the Fight FOCA petition has more than 400,000 signers. Together, we can get tens of thousands more before President-elect Barack Obama even takes the oath of office.

And please come to Washington to march with us next week in the March for Life! We have Fight FOCA signs for the March this year and we’re looking for volunteers to help pass out the signs and flyers. If you’re going to the March for Life (Thursday, January 22 in Washington, DC) and want to help, please send an email to

We are only able to make this campaign work thanks to friends like you who support the efforts of AUL Action with a financial contribution. If you’d like to join the financial support team, click here.

Yours for Life,

P.S. -- I hope to see you at the March for Life in DC!
