President Obama has vowed to sign the Freedom of Choice Act, which ostensibly takes away the right for health care professionals and organizations to choose not to provide abortions, sterilizations, and birth control. If you haven't already, please let our leaders know that FOCA is a mistake. Here is a link to the Catholic Bishops' site:
Our bishops have stated in the past and continue to state that the day our government requires abortions in all hospitals is the day Catholic hospitals in the U.S. cease to exist. Can you imagine the chaos? In a system that is already overloaded, losing about half the hospitals in the U.S. would be devastating. I don't think that our president, though, is concerned.
