Freedom of Choice Act

"The greatest destroyer of peace is abortion"
Mother Teresa

The tuesday's inauguration of Barack Obama brought concern from pro life groups....with the incoming administration--particularly the "Freedom of Choice Act". This bill is the most serious threat to pro life policies ever. Obama has said he would sign this bill into law (he just declared in one of his campaign speeches that the first thing he would do, as president, is sign the Freedom Choice Act.)

The proposed bill would get rid of all restrictions on abortions, that minors would not have to get consents of a parent and taxpayer's money would pay for abortions. Well, it seems that he will promote a culture of death, not a culture of life.

Here's what the Freedom of Choice Act all about:
The Freedom of Choice Act declares that it is the policy of the United States that every woman has the fundamental right to choose to (1) bear a child; (2)terminate pregnancy prior to fetal viability; (3) terminate a pregnancy after fetal viability when necessary to protect her life or her health.
Prohibits a federal, state, or local government entity from (1)denying or interfering with a woman's right to exercise choices; or (2) discriminating against exercise of those rights in the regulations or provisions of benefits, facilities, services, or information. It also provides that such prohibition shall apply retroactively.
It authorized an individual aggrieved by a violation of this act to obtain appropriated relief, including relief against a government entity, in a civil action.
