President-elect Obama has promised that the first thing he would do as President is sign the Freedom of Choice Act.
This would eliminate every restriction on abortion nationwide. It would make abortion a federally guaranteed right through all nine months of pregnancy for any reason. Virtually every state and federal limitation on abortion that is currently on the books would be abolished:
Bans on Partial Birth Abortion
Requirements that women be given information about the risks of getting an abortion
Only licensed physicians can perform abortions
Parents must be informed and give consent to their minor daughter’s abortion
The Freedom of Choice Act would erase these laws and prevent states from enacting similar protective measures in the future.
Now that the elections are over, we can expect a fight over the Freedom of Choice Act to begin as soon as the next Congress begins.
So, what can you do? Sign this petition – and maybe, just maybe our next president will listen.
