Pro-Life U.S. House Members Resist FOCA,
Defend Hyde Amendment in Letters to Obama, Pelosi

WASHINGTON (March 5, 2009)—In two recent letters, numerous members of the U.S. House of Representatives have put President Barack Obama and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Ca.) on notice that they are strongly opposed to any plans to enact new pro-abortion policies during the new Congress, which convened in January.

On January 21, 113 House Republicans, led by Republican Leader John Boehner (Oh.) and House Republican Whip Eric Cantor (Va.), sent a letter to President Obama, urging him to withdraw his pre-election pledge to sign the so-called “Freedom of Choice Act” (FOCA) if Congress approves that bill. (A complete list of the signers appears at the bottom of this article.)

As a U.S. senator, Obama was a cosponsor of the FOCA, a proposed federal law that would invalidate virtually all limitations on abortion, including parental notification laws, require government funding of abortion, and make partial-birth abortion legal again.

An Update on Stopping Obama’s Abortion Agenda
By Dave Andrusko

We devoted the entire January issue to one critically important theme: Stopping Obama’s Abortion Agenda. All the tools were there, from how to use social networks and the web in general, to church bulletin inserts, to the petition, to “e-mail trees,” to how to join and/or start a local pro-life group, to how best to utilize the enthusiasm and sincerity of young pro-lifers, to name just a few.

I promised myself and Jacki Ragan, director of NRLC’s State Organizational Development Department, that every two months NRL News would update you on how well our three-pronged strategy is going. It consists of (1) finding as many pro-lifers as possible; (2) getting them organized; and (3) welcoming them on board as members of National Right to Life.

From the President

Wanda Franz, Ph.D.

PRESIDENT OBAMA PUSHES “CHANGE” WE CAN NOT “BELIEVE IN”

Before the presidential election, pro-lifers had determined that candidate Obama would make the most pro-abortion president yet.  Unfortunately, as developments since the election have shown, our judgment was correct.  And our opponents are delighted.

Hard-Core Pro-Abortion Agenda

Barack Obama, as president-elect and as president, has drawn heavily from the ranks of NARAL; Emily’s List; and grimly pro-abortion academics, lawyers, and politicians to staff his administration.  The pro-abortionists even provided him with a 55-page action plan for enacting their wish list of extreme pro-abortion policies.  Planned Parenthood types are very hopeful:  Susan Cohen writes, “The early weeks of 2009 constituted proof positive that with strong supporters of reproductive health and rights occupying the White House and leadership positions in both houses of Congress, policy change for the better is possible” (“The New Day at Its Dawn,” Guttmacher Policy Review, Winter 2009, Vol. 12, No. 1).  Yes, it is as bad as we had feared.
