This weekend, the Catholic Faithful were enjoined from the pulpit to help defeat the Freedom of Choice Act. Of course, they didn't call it by name, only initials. FOCA. Because the words, FREEDOM and CHOICE, are so very threatening. A poster displayed the list of horrific consequences should the liberals hold sway. Most parishes offered preprinted, addressed postcards so each person can lobby their Senator to defeat the bill.
I expect egregious misinformation from the usual vocal opponents of Pro-Choice. I didn't expect printed material delivered in church, dispensed by the diocese, to be full of inflammatory misrepresentations.
Shame on them.
Here is a link to the actual text of the bill. Freedom of Choice Act. In previous sessions of Congress, it has been submitted twice and died, twice, in committee. Even though one of President Obama's campaign promises was to pass and sign the Freedom of Choice Act, the Senate is still, by small margin, Pro-Life.
Here is the treacherous villainy some in Congress would foist on the American public.
"A woman's decision to commence, prevent, continue, or terminate a pregnancy is one of the most intimate decisions an individual ever faces. As such, reproductive health decisions are best made by the woman, in consultation with her medical provider or loved ones, without governmental interference."
govtrack.us is a site that tracks the progress of bills through Congress. This link shows the progress of the bill in the 110th Session. I hope the 111th does better, even with an onslaught from the Catholic Mislead.
