The Freedom of Choice Act is a bill which, if passed, would nullify all existing laws limiting abortion including parental consent and notification laws, partial-birth abortion bans, requirements that licensed physicians perform abortions, limits on public funding for elective abortions (meaning American taxpayers would then be paying for abortion procedures whether they like it or not), and the legal protections given to faith-based hospitals who do not perform abortions because it is against their religious faith. Yeah, you read that right, it would force hospitals run by religious institutions, who believe abortion to be morally wrong, to perform abortions – taking away their religious freedom to choose and LIVE what they believe. Catholic Bishops have said they would close Catholic Hospitals rather than be forced to perform abortions.
And our “esteemed” President Elect became a co-sponser of the 2007 Senate version of the bill. He has said he would sign FOCA into law.
