Fighting FOCA

The Freedom of Choice Act, which President-elect Obama has promised to enact as his first item of business as President, is a piece of legislation that begs the passionate opposition of every American citizen – even those among us who are pro-choice. The Senate version of the bill, introduced by Barbara Boxer (why does this come as no surprise?) is located here. Read it carefully. Note the “Findings,” which for all practical purposes set the groundwork for understanding the motivations and ambitions of the advocates and sponsors of the bill. Notice the language, word choices, definitions – the absence of definitions. Pretend it is a college text for which you are about to face an exam.

In the next few days, you’ll be seeing more here about this issue. Please pray for me, and for a friend, and for a project he is developing and I am supporting.
