Partner With Us On A Project Before The Election

October 28, 2008

Dear Friend,

As we head into the last week of a presidential campaign with enormous consequences for life, I want you to know about an ad campaign that AUL Action is launching.

The background to the ad campaign is an important civil case against Planned Parenthood in Ohio, in which AUL is involved. Planned Parenthood is being sued by the parents of a 14-year-old girl who was impregnated by her 22-year-old soccer coach. When the girl’s coach took her to have an abortion, Planned Parenthood turned a blind eye when he pretended to be a family member for the parental notification requirements and gave her the abortion.

When the parents eventually found out, the soccer coach was convicted of SEVEN counts of sexual battery and served three years in prison.

This story and others like it are the reason AUL has spent over thirty years putting into place common-sense abortion legislation, like parental notification requirements that protect young girls from sexual abuse.

As AUL supporters, you know what many Americans do not: The Freedom of Choice Act (FOCA) would eliminate parental notification laws and every other limit on abortion.

And Senator Obama promised the Planned Parenthood Action Fund in 2007, “The first thing I’d do as President is sign the Freedom of Choice Act.”

As a response to that promise, today AUL Action is releasing an Open Letter to Senator Obama asking him why he supports the Freedom of Choice Act (FOCA). In our letter, we talk about the family in Ohio — it is a story that needs to be told.

You can see a copy of the ad — and sign a petition against FOCA — at our website

We are spreading the word about the letter through newspaper ads in Ohio, but in order to do more, we need your help. If you can partner with us to place one of these ads, you can make a donation at

Because this project is through AUL Action, a 501(c)(4) organization, contributions are not tax-deductible.

Too many pro-life Americans still don’t know about the threat posed to pro-life legislation by the FOCA bill. In this last week of the campaign, we’d like to see parental involvement laws return to the discussion, and that’s what these ads will do. If you can help us with a donation of any amount, we would be most grateful.

Yours for life,

Charmaine Yoest, Ph.D.
President and CEO
AUL Action

PS — We need your help to spread the word. Please consider making a non-tax-deducible donation at

Obama’s FOCA will lead to government-mandated birth control. THIS is the msg that needs to get out. It is explained in this article:

“St. Padre Pio, Humanae Vitae, and Mandatory Abortion”

St. Pio defended the controversial encyclical, praising its “lofty teachings” and “eternal truths.”

An aspect of the document often overlooked today is its grim warning that governments might “impose” contraceptive methods on citizens.

In the light of the Humanae Vitae’s other accurate predictions,
are mandatory birth control and abortion on the horizon for America?
