Yes - it is the woman's body, but it is not her life.
I have a friend, a very dear friend, whom has miscarried five babies. Each one to her a life, a baby boy, a baby girl, another baby girl... and the last to they didn't know. But each child has a name. Each one a life. Each one a baby book and a sonogram photo if they were able to get one.
So, the Freedom of Choice Act - also known as FOCA, gives women privacy and this right to chose. It allows a 13 year old girl to get an abortion without her parents knowing.
Okay, so - the school nurse has to call to get permission to give your 13 year old an aspirin? But we don't need permission to get an abortion?
Whom exactly is this catering to in this case? A Child, a 13 year old child who is scared to death of her parents finding out. That's who. And that is why.
Is something wrong with this picture? Aspirin must be so much more scary and dangerous than a abortion, I guess.
With FOCA Partial Birth Abortions would also be legal. If you don't know what this is I strongly suggest that you click here. But be warned, it isn't nice.
Taxpayers -even those who do not believe in abortion - will have to pay for them. Religous hospials would be forced to perform them or close their doors.
Along with this, there are other things FOCA will cause, so please look into it. There is a button to it in the right side of my scroll bar, you will have to scroll down and down. And President Obama already reversed Bushes ban on giving federal money to international groups that perform abortions. Does he want to pass this act too?
Please help fight this. Yes, women have a choice, but I feel this is secretive and not safe and while there are those who are pro-choice, this does, in my opinion infringe on the rights of pro-life citizens, when pro-choice can already make their choice without this. That is my opinion. You are welcome to express yours even if you do not agree with me. But please don't be nasty. I've tried not to be.
Fight FOCA. Oh yes, and I wanted to add this button to the blog I read this on:
