Stand up for LIFE, for States' Rights, and for "De-Porking" Federal Expenditures

While there is at least some public awareness of the ghastly (in name and effect) "Freedom of Choice Act" (FOCA), which would wipe out all state laws on abortion and impose abortion-on-demand as the law of the land, there is less attention to the way in which FOCA might be foisted on us bit by bit through various funding provisions in the "Stimulus Bill" and other legislation.

Representatives Jim Jordan (R - OH) and Heath Schuler (D - NC) have composed a letter to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, urging her "to keep the current pro-life laws in place or allow for amendments to restore them when a bill is debated."

You can support this letter by writing to your Federal Representative. Americans United for Life provides a contact link here, which will automatically identify your Representative by zip code and send your message of support for the Jordan/Schuler letter.
