Freedom of Choice Act

Freedom is Not the License To Do Whatever We Wish,
But, the Power to Do What is Right
- Fr. John Corapi (1998)

The Freedom of Choice Act is not a very Christian undertaking. 'Christian' politicians are leading our country, but you wouldn't know it from their actions. The self-professed 'Christians' Barack Hussein Obama, Nancy Pelosi, and Harry Reid all have power to do what is right, but they fall far short by doing only what is politically expedient.

It is easy to do what is popular, it is unpopular to do what is right. Unfortunately, it seems that the three 'Christian' amigos in power are more interested in tripping over themselves to be popular among the bloodthirsty mob, than they are about doing what is right - especially in light of the fact that they claim to be Christ-followers.

Fortunately the U.S. Bishops have spoken out against the proposed legislation Freedom of Choice Act. Cardinal Francis George, spokesman for the USCCB said,

"FOCA would coerce all Americans into subsidizing and promoting abortion with their tax dollars. It would counteract any and all sincere efforts by government and others of good will to reduce the number of abortions in our country.

Parental notification and informed consent precautions would be outlawed, as would be laws banning procedures such as partial-birth abortion and protecting infants born alive after a failed abortion. Abortion clinics would be deregulated.

The Hyde Amendment restricting the federal funding of abortions would be abrogated. FOCA would have lethal consequences for prenatal human life."

Perhaps the Three Amigos (Pelosi, Obama, Reid) will heed this admonition and be true and convincing witnesses to the Christian faith they so publicly claim as their own.
