Pray to stop the Freedom of Choice Act

NOVENA TO STOP FOCA
If you are opposed to abortion then there is bad news on the horizon.
For those of you who do not know, the Freedom of Choice Act (FOCA) is set to be signed if congress passes it on January 21-22 of 2009. 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 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.

Perhaps most importantly the government will now have control in the issue of abortion. This could result in a future amendment that would force women by law to have abortions in certain
situations (rape, down syndrome babies, etc) and could even regulate how many children women are allowed to have.

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.

The Plan :

To say a novena ( 9 days of prayer ) along with fasting
starting on January 11th. The prayer of choice will be
the rosary with intentions to stop the FOCA. The hope is that this will branch and
blossom as to become a global effort with maximum impact. We have very
little time so we all must act fast. Just do three things:

1) Pass this letter to 5 or more people

2) Do it in three days or less

3) Start the novena on January 11th and pray for nine consecutive days.
(please also fast for at least two days during the novena)

Remember that with God all things are possible and the power of prayer is undeniable. If you are against the senseless killing of defenseless children then the time is now to do something
about it!

The article says "[Under FOCA,] 1) All hospitals, including Catholic hospitals will be
required to perform abortions upon request."

That's a lie.

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

That's also a lie.

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

Yes, and doing so will save money and lower taxes.

"4) Parental notification will no longer be required."

Another lie.

"5) The number of abortions will increase by a minimum of 100,000 annually."

That's a lie, actually it's a minimum of 100,000 lies. I won't tell you the true number of extra abortions FOCA will cause, but here's a hint: you're not allowed to divide by it.

It gets worse. You wrote: "Perhaps most importantly the government will now have control in the issue of abortion. This could result in a future amendment that would force women by law to have abortions in certain
situations (rape, down syndrome babies, etc) and could even regulate how many children women are allowed to have."

Anyone who reads the text of FOCA knows that this is a lie. FOCA explicitly guarantees the right to choose non-abortion. You must really think your readers are stupid.

My father learned an important dicturm in law school, "the Constitution means whatever the Supreme Court says it means".
The same goes for FOCA. If the Supreme Court could find a non-existent "right to privacy" in the Constitution, then anything goes once FOCA is passed. We are merely speculating on how Clinton and Obama's appointed judges will interpret this dangerous law.
My readers have been in the fray of the right to life movement long enough to see some terrrible liberties taken with our Constitution.
Do you honestly think that Thomas Jefferson wouls approve of Partial Birth Abortion or babies being left to suffocate on soiled heaps of hospital laundry?!
