Opposing FOCA is Common Sense

Tuesday, March 3rd, 2009

Pro-abortion activists have criticized pro-life people for opposing FOCA (the “Freedom of Choice Act”) even though it hadn’t been introduced again in Congress. This is very typical of abortion supporters. While they hallucinate every day about the pro-life movement as being threatening and violent, they criticize us when we try to stop legislation that has been introduced twice in the past and represents the goals of those who have gained power in Washington in the last election. It’s amazing to see the double-standard that abortion supporters have, especially since they are precisely the ones who want to see every restriction on abortion eliminated. And that’s precisely what FOCA is designed to do. These proposals will likely be introduced one piece at a time. It is common sense to oppose them.

Plus Nine

Monday, March 2nd, 2009

On the island of Malta, where unborn children are still protected, there is a campaign called “plus nine.” The idea is to make people aware that their unique and individual lives began not on the day of their birth but on the day they were conceived. That is the day they began to exist. Through this effort, the plus sign, and the number 9, are placed in as many places as possible, to make people think of this simple, powerful concept, which is based not simply on religious belief, but on biological fact. Some observe this fact by celebrating not only their birthday, but their “FirstDay,” nine months earlier. Indeed, the children in the womb are real people. Through simple efforts like “plus nine,” we can help people realize that it is wrong to kill them.
