Americans United for Life Encourges FOCA Comments; Charmaine Quoted in US News & World Report



Join Fight FOCA

Charmaine was interviewed Tuesday by Dan Gilgoff from USN&WR in Pro-Lifers Inundate Obama Website With Comments,

“The president of Americans United for Life, Charmaine Yoest, gave God & Country a heads-up that pro-lifers have inundated the Obama transition team’s website with comments opposing passage of the Freedom of Choice Act, which would codify Roe v. Wade and strike down abortion restrictions currently on the books.

When she sent the E-mail last night, Yoest says, there were fewer than 200 comments responding to a memo titled “Advancing Reproductive Rights and Health in a New Administration,” on the Obama site, change.gov. Now, there are almost 2,000 comments. Most—almost all, in fact—appear to be from abortion rights opponents.”

Dan Gilgoff researched the comments and reported that the comments of the Lifers were consistently polite.  Odd in the blogosphere.  Alert the media.

“Comments areas are notorious for their nastiness, but I’m struck by the respectful tone of these protests.



[T]he volume of comments also shows that the pro-life movement is very much engaged right now and can be quickly activated. If he removes Bush-era abortion restrictions, as expected—like banning U.S. funds from going to foreign groups that offer or promote abortion in family planning services—Obama will face a firestorm of criticism. And should he move beyond such traditionally Democratic policies to actually expand abortion rights through a law like FOCA, pro-lifers would go ballistic. They’re already watching closely.”

Since Gilgoff’s article appeared a few hours ago the pro-abortion liberals jumped into the comments section.  Bringing the usual blog snarkiness and forcing the website moderators to work over time over the Christmas holidays.  Readers are regularly now treated to,

Which was not seen before the abortionists joined the discussion.  Abortion is a nasty business.

Thank you (foot)notes:

Even though Obama has promised to sign FOCA into law as his first order of business, he might consider doing politics in Your Nation’s Capital a bit differently.  A Change.

Alert Readers know that Your Business Blogger(R) teaches management skills to private clients and at the local college.  One of the best bosses in the practice of management happens to be a woman, Carol Clews.  She happens to run a center for pregnancy concerns.  Carol emailed us about FOCA, the “Freedom of Choice Act,”

Mr. Obama,  before you make such an important, life-depriving decision, will you please take time to visit a pregnancy center (like the one I’m director of here in Baltimore City) and see just what we do here. After all, you visited Planned Parenthood—the least you can do is visit a place where truly ALL of a woman’s options are discussed and she truly has freedom of choice.

Perhaps Obama will take note of Carol’s suggestion.  It would be good politics.  For A Change.
