WASHINGTON, Oct. 28 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- AUL Action is releasing an open letter today highlighting the dangers of the Freedom of Choice Act (FOCA) and Sen. Obama's promise to sign it.
Dr. Charmaine Yoest, President & CEO of AUL Action said, "Many people still don't even know about this radical bill . . . and Obama has promised Planned Parenthood it would be his first priority in the White House."
FOCA would wipe away every restriction on abortion nationwide, and prevent enactment of future protective measures like common-sense parental involvement laws and prohibitions on partial birth abortion.
The letter tells the story of a 14-year-old girl from Cincinnati who became pregnant by her 22-year-old soccer coach. Planned Parenthood gave her an abortion after turning a blind eye when the soccer coach pretended to be a family member for the parental notification requirements.
Sen. Obama last year promised Planned Parenthood Action Fund, "The first thing I'd do as President is sign the Freedom of Choice Act."
The letter asks Senator Obama why he supports the Freedom of Choice Act, which would eliminate parental involvement laws and every other limit on abortion.
The open letter will be placed in newspapers across Ohio.
Copies of the open letter are available at http://www.FightFOCA.com.
