Cardinal Rigali's letter to Congress

Cardinal Justin Rigali issued a warning to Congress about the Freedom of Choice Act, called "FOCA" which Obama promises to pass as the first act of his presidency if elected.
If this doesn't scare you out of voting for Obama, I doubt anything will.
The operative language of FOCA is twofold. First it creates a "fundamental right" to abortion throughout the nine months of pregnancy, including a right to abort a fully developed child in the final weeks for undefined "health" reasons. No government body at any level would be able to "deny or interfere with" this newly created federal right. Second, it forbids government at all levels to "discriminate" against the exercise of this right "in the regulation or provision of benefits, facilities, services, or information." For the first time, abortion on demand would be a national entitlement that government must condone and promote in all public programs affecting pregnant women.
