View from the choir

I am a Catholic layperson and Secular Franciscan with a sense of humor. After years in the back pew watching, I have moved into the choir. It's nice to see faces instead of the backs of heads. But I still maintain God has a sense of humor - and that we are created in God's image.

Fight FOCA - and Obama's Promise

Last year while speaking to Planned Parenthood, Barack Obama promised: "The first thing I’d do as President is sign the Freedom of Choice Act. That’s the first thing I’d do."

FOCA would 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

There's a petition against FOCA - more than 30,000 people have signed it as of this evening. Consider signing it.
