Sign the Fight FOCA petition 

Sign the petition at While campaigning for the U.S. presidency, Barack Obama made a promise. In 2007 before the Planned Parenthood Action Fund, Barack Obama told pro-abortion activists:

"The first thing I'd do as President is sign the Freedom of Choice Act."

With a single stroke of the pen, the Freedom of Choice Act (FOCA) would establish the right to abortion as a fundamental right (like the right to free speech) and wipe away every restriction on abortion nationwide.

Twenty senators (including the then-Senator Barack Obama) and 109 U.S. representatives have co-sponsored FOCA. The stated aim is to "end the abortion wars."

To these legislators, "ending the abortion wars" means allowing abortion for any reason, at any time, without any restriction or any regulation. This would eradicate state and federal laws that the majority of Americans support, and prevent states from enacting similar protective measures in the future.

Please add your name to the Fight FOCA petition and let everyone know about President-elect Barack Obama's promise to expand abortion throughout the country.
