UPDATE: A FEW CONCRETE RAMIFICATIONS OF THE FREEDOM OF CHOICE ACT CAN BE FOUND HERE. I BELIEVE THAT MOST PRO-LIFE AND PRO-CHOICE AMERICANS WOULD LIKELY WANT TO ENSURE THAT PARTIAL BIRTH ABORTION REMAINS ILLEGAL. IF FOR NOTHING ELSE BUT TO ENSURE THAT PARTIAL BIRTH ABORTION REMAINS ILLEGAL, PLEASE SIGN THE PETITION TO FIGHT THE FREEDOM OF CHOICE ACT AT www.fightfoca.com.
Okay, hopefully I'm not oversimplifying, but the Freedom of Choice Act is a law that is not on the books that President-elect Barack Obama at one point said would be his first order of legal business as President. It is a piece of legislation that abolishes all State level laws regarding abortion. It may do more than that, but that's all of which I'm aware. This means that abortions would become much easier to have regardless of the reason. So, if you want to take action to put pressure on the President-elect not to sign this piece of legislation (or to keep others from signing it [I'm not politician, so I don't even know who all would need to sign the piece of legislation first] - bottom line: I want nobody to sign it into law) then go to www.fightfoca.com and add your name to those opposed to this law.
If you are pro-choice to any degree, please consider signing it as this law may be more destructive to the rights of human infants than you might have first thought, as it would abolish all State laws regarding abortion.
Feel free to comment if I've mis-represented FOCA in any way and I will edit it.
