Obama - B16: FOCA Showdown

WashPost's Jeffery Kuhner sums up the approaching Obama administration maelstrom concerning the 'Freedom Of Choice Act' or 'Freedom to Murder Act' which it should be called.

The question, 'how many divisions does the Pope have?' is the question once asked before (WWII).

With over 54% of U.S. Catholics that voted for Obama, it may seem that some of the division's have replaced their swords and shields with white flags when it comes to the abortion call to arms. With the promised passage of the FOCA , it will differently be more than a few more nails in the 'unborn coffin'.

I'm afraid that the election stand of 'maybe a few less abortions' is going to be one of the most tragic compromise battle cries ever uttered by deceived Catholics.

But, I'm not ready to give up the fight and nor should you. I'd rather be on the side of truth defending the unborn and be out numbered, than be on the side of untruth and in the majority.

Here's Mr. Kuhner's observation's:

KUHNER: Obama vs. Pope Benedict

President-elect Barack Obama's plan to pass the Freedom of Choice Act is setting up a showdown with the Vatican.

"The first thing I will do as president is sign the Freedom of Choice Act," he said at an address before Planned Parenthood on July 17, 2007. And if he does, it will trigger a harsh response from Pope Benedict XVI, as well as a political revolt among practicing American Catholics.

Mr. Obama signing the Freedom of Choice Act (FOCA) "would be the equivalent of a war," a senior Vatican official told Time magazine last week. "It would be like saying, 'We've heard the Catholic Church and we have no interest in their concerns.' " At a recent Baltimore meeting, the U.S. Catholic bishops pledged to challenge Mr. Obama on his defense of abortion rights.

FOCA seeks to codify Roe v. Wade into federal law. It would remove all restrictions on abortion in state statutes - including restraints on late-term abortions and parental notification laws. It would also entrench taxpayer funding of abortion. Moreover, it would compel Catholic health-care facilities to provide the heinous procedure. In short, it constitutes a fundamental assault on basic Catholic doctrine.
