Take A Stand Against Partial Birth Abortions

[deleted account] ( 15 moms have responded )

Hello All!



Please take a moment to sign this very important petition: www.fightfoca.com.



President Obama made a promise to Planned Parenthood last year they expect him to keep.



He is quoted as saying, "The first thing I'd do as President is sign the Freedom of Choice Act (FOCA).That's the first thing I'd do."



FOCA Would Wipe Away Every Restrictionion Nationwide



This would eradicate state and federal laws that the majority of Americans support, such as:



Bans on Partial Birth Abortion

Requirements that women be given information about the risks of getting an abortion

Only licensed physicians can perform abortions

Parents must be informed and give consent to their minor daughter's abortion

FOCA would erase these laws and prevent states from enacting similar protective measures in the future.



For those of you that do not know, partial birth abortions are a completely inhumane procedure, that breaks my heart to even explain it...but here it is:



THE PROCEDURE: A woman can choose to have a partial-birth abortion when she is 5-9 months pregnant, and no sooner. This involves rotating the baby so thats it's feet will come out first, unnatural in the first place, delivering everything but the baby's head. The doctor then takes a large pair of scissors and inserts them into the back of the baby's head, pressing through the skull. He opens the scissors making a hole. Then inserts a suction tube into the hole, and sucks out the baby's brains. The baby is now dead and completely limp.



Because the baby is 5-9 months, they are nearly full term, meaning that their brain and heart are nearly fully developed, and their body parts are just reaching completion. The baby is alive. They have a heart, they have a heartbeat that is clearly noticed, and they have a brain. Just because they are unable to speak, does not mean they aren't saying no.



Partial-Birth Abortion has been done for years in the United States, legally. Several bans have gone through the Supreme Court, but has only been considered, and eventually tossed aside.



These abortions are purely elective. These women do not get a Partial-Birth abortion for health reasons, but simply because they changed their mind.



These babies are kept in buckets. Stored in rooms. ONCE LIVING BABIES, now numbered, dead, and they never had a chance.



There was a ban placed on Partial Birth Abortion in the United States in 2003. This ban states that it is illegal to perform partial birth abortions. However, some medical clinicians refuse to abide by this bill claiming there is no exception for Partial Birth Abortions performed under the circumstance that the mother's life is in danger. The ban was upheld in 2007.



President Barack Obama voted against this ban both times it was presented to him. He believes that a woman should have the right to choose, alongside her doctor, what is best for her. He has also been reported to defend infanticide.



I never actually knew what a "partial birth abortion" was until recently. Now that I know, it pains me to no end, and the thought of it immediately brings tears to my eyes, just as it does now as I'm writing this. I'm so moved by it that I want others to know about this and take a stand against it as well...



Every day when I look in my son's eyes, I thank God I have him. And I don't know how anyone could condone this cruel, brutal, and heartless procedure.



Please take a minute and sign the petition: www.fightfoca.com



Thanks for reading this...and be sure to tell your friends to sign it as well....

Abortion at any time is a disgrace, against God and against humanity! I remember being shown an abortion video in Sunday School as a kid and I was horrified and sickened to the point that I couldn't watch. I will never understand the thinking that the fetus is not a human until it "pops out". I will sign the petition and forward it to my friends and family. Thank you for your post!

Quoting Jenny:

why again is he our president....i never knew what partial birth abortions are until just now..how awful. and infanticide??? I AM SICK TO MY STOMACH. IS OBAHMA EVEN HUMAN?


 



to answer your question, I think it was voter fraud.  I really don't think that many people would vote for him on purpose.  It's not far fetched to say that dead people vote.



 



I, too, have already signed this and have passed it on.  A person is a person no matter how small!

Thank you for posting this. I will sign this and pass it along. We have a fight on our hands and we must stand up for what is right, because where there is life, even if they can't speak for themselves, there is a will to live.

I hate how they call it "pro-choice" when people believe in abortion.  In most situations, isn't the act of sex a choice?  (I know that there are different debates about abortion with rape, and I can understand that a little better)  What about the rights of the unborn child?  I don't understand how calling murder a choice then makes it legal...?



I will be signing this petition right now.

This is the most awful thing I've ever heard of. I just don't understand how people can think it is ok to do this. I mean, don't they understand that the baby can feel what's happening to him/her. I am also shocked that a mother would choose to abort her baby because she's afraid it is going to hurt.......I mean how selfish could you be to put your own welfare over your babies. Atleast when you have a baby you get the options for pain control, which the baby doesn't even get that.



Thank you for that link, I sent it in an email to all of my friends and family. I just hope that someday people will grow a heart and realize that it is wrong, and murder to do this.

I Signed the Petition!!! I am in shock!! Common sense will tell a child that killing a baby in the womb is wrong!! Much more in the last month of pregnancy!! I challenge anyone to ask a Kindergardner if Mommy should kill the baby in her stomach. I guarantee you not one Kindergardner will say "yes". Of course the answer is "no". It's always "no". The sense of right and wrong is inside of them just as much as adults, but adults tend to ignore it.

I think that it is past time for another Revolution.  How much more of this crap are we supposed to take?

I often wonder what kind of people are working at Planned Parenthood and other places where they perform abortions. Like the people that perform them and the staff.



We seriously need to pray for their souls.



Can you imagine that your work everyday is murdering babies? I don't understand HOW a person could be so evil to do that day in and day out - AND think that they're doing something GOOD!!! It's the work of satan.

I've already signed it and sent it to everyone I know. I can't imagine this passing. What is wrong with people?!? I don't believe in any abortion ever, but how can there even be a debate about this? They are clearly children no matter what your definition is. Please eveybody sign this, we have to stick together and save our babies!! Thanks for posting this!!

I agree...I think many people just claim to be "pro-choice" because initially they think that's the politically correct answer.  They are just uninformed, and will go along with the group...I think if more women knew that actual TRUE facts about it, they would change their minds in a heartbeat.  I find this particular subject about partial birth abortions completely difficult to talk about without my eyes welling up with tears, but the more people that are informed, the more people will be able to stand against it!



Thank you for reading this!  And don't forget to sign the petition & pass it along to anyone else who you think should read & sign....

Thank you so much for posting this! I was just talking with a girlfriend last night who considers herself pro choice. We got on the topic of abortion and I began to tell her more of the facts. She had no idea about partial birth abortion or that a woman can legally get an abortion at any time and for basically any reason (fear of pain)! I think many of these women who say they're pro choice envision only women who've been raped or who's lives are threatened by pregnancy getting abortions. We must continue to educate people on the reality of this murder of the unborn. My friend was shocked when I explained to her what partial birth abortion entails. It is incredibly difficult to talk about, but needs to be explained to all the "casual" pro choicers so they know what they're defending. God Bless!

I watched a clip on youtube.com that showed him at that Planned Parenthood gathering where he made that quote you mentioned.



If you go to whitehouse.gov and click on "the agenda," you can already view Obama's priorities, a day into his presidency. Under the section "Women," you will find this:



"President Obama understands that abortion is a divisive issue, and respects those who disagree with him. However, he has been a consistent champion of reproductive choice and will make preserving women's rights under Roe v. Wade a priority in his Adminstration. He opposes any constitutional amendment to overturn the Supreme Court's decision in that case."



Absolutely, we need to pray for the RIGHTS of the UNBORN citizens of this country! And for their moms. My heart sincerely goes out to them. Please remember to pray for them.



There are numerous women who are being coerced into having abortions. Here's a link to the Physicians for Life website with an article "Forced and Coercive Abortions an 'Epidemic' for U.S. Women:"

Thanks for the info, I signed and passed it along. We'll be told by our media at how "centerist" President Obama is in his policies...how is partial birth abortion a centerist view?! I'm still amazed that a person who supported infanticide is now our President. Terribly sad stuff. Pray for the babies.
