“In recent years, Congress has attached special annual funding provisions called pro-life “riders” to spending bills, to ensure taxpayers aren’t forced to fund abortions here and overseas. Now, the Democrat-controlled Congress is moving forward to strip those “riders” from the spending bills and thereby require taxpayers to fund abortion and abortion-providing organizations through the federal budget.
“Focus on the Family Action has just launched a citizen petition to oppose this latest phase in the radical, pro-abortion agenda, as well as the effort to force citizens to pay. In addition to opposing taxpayer funding of abortions, this petition also allows citizens to take a stand against President Obama’s pledge to sign into law the Freedom of Choice Act (FOCA), if Congress passes it, which would overturn hundreds of pro-life laws.”
“As a pro-life American, I oppose any and all legislative and executive efforts that require or allow my taxpayer dollars to be used to fund abortions or providers of abortion services. Specifically, I urge Congress to retain the pro-life “riders” in the appropriations bills that will prevent my tax dollars from funding abortions or abortion providers. No U.S. tax dollars should be used to fund abortions or organizations that provide abortion services, either in the United States or abroad.
“In addition, I join with other concerned citizens who are alarmed by President (Soetoro’s a/k/a) Obama’s pledge to sign the Freedom of Choice Act (FOCA), if passed by Congress. FOCA would nationalize an unlimited right to abortion and overturn hundreds of reasonable laws that protect society against the worst abuses of abortion.”
Please join me and thousands of others in supporting the restriction of all funding for the taking of innocent life through the murderous abortion procedure. Let’s stop our own American Holocaust.
