FOCA, the Freedom of Choice Act, may be one of the defining issues of our day. It may be one of those forks in the road for the USA and the world.
I direct your attention to initiatives through which you can make your thoughts known on a wider scale, but joining your name to that of others.
I imagine some of you will have your own links.
In posting these links I am not indicating a preference of one initiative over or against another:

I got this from a priest reader:
Obama has stated making FOCA law is a top priority for him. This is absolutely disastrous for pro-life. Below is an excerpt from a ZENIT interview. See the link at to add your name to the 200,000 so-far signatures for FIGHT FOCA.
As a federal statute under the Supremacy Clause of the U.S. Constitution, the so-called Freedom of Choice Act (FOCA) would declare abortion to be a "fundamental right" at every stage of pregnancy and would, thereby, specifically invalidate any "statute, ordinance, regulation, administrative order, decision, policy, practice, or other action" of any federal, state, or local government that would "deny or interfere with a woman’s right to choose" abortion, or that would "discriminate against the exercise of the right […] in the regulation or provision of benefits, facilities, services, or information."
The language of FOCA is clear and absolute. FOCA would compel state and federal public funding of abortion on demand and invalidate every state, federal and local regulation on abortion and abortion practice enacted over the past 35 years, including all limits on partial birth abortion, all parental involvement laws, and all laws protecting rights of conscience relating to abortion.
So, we’re extremely concerned about FOCA, though encouraged by the 200,000 who have so far signed our FightFOCA petition at www.fightFOCA.com.
