Upcoming Pro-life Events

9 Days of Prayer to Prevent the Freedom of Choice Act
A novena will be prayed from January 11 until January 19 for the intention of preventing the Freedom of Choice Act (FOCA). President-elect Barack Obama has promised Planned Parenthood that he will enact the FOCA as soon as he is in office. This act would undo many of the safeguards and laws pro-lifers have worked so hard to put in place over the years, including parental notification laws and the partial birth abortion ban. Not only that, but doctors would be required by law to perform abortions regardless of their personal beliefs. These are just a few of the things FOCA would enable and require. Please pray that President-elect Obama will not be able to keep his promise to PP.
