Press Release: Open Letter to Sen. Obama

October 28, 2008

AUL Action Releases Open Letter to Sen. Obama: Why do you oppose parental notification laws that protect our children from sexual abuse?

Washington, DC — AUL Action is releasing an open letter today highlighting the dangers of the Freedom of Choice Act (FOCA) and Sen. Obama’s promise to sign it.

Dr. Charmaine Yoest, President & CEO of AUL Action said, “Many people still don’t even know about this radical bill . . . and Obama has promised Planned Parenthood it would be his first priority in the White House.”

FOCA would wipe away every restriction on abortion nationwide, and prevent enactment of future protective measures like common-sense parental involvement laws and prohibitions on partial birth abortion.

The letter tells the story of a 14-year-old girl from Cincinnati who became pregnant by her 22-year-old soccer coach. Planned Parenthood gave her an abortion after turning a blind eye when the soccer coach pretended to be a family member for the parental notification requirements.

Sen. Obama last year promised Planned Parenthood Action Fund, “The first thing I’d do as President is sign the Freedom of Choice Act.”

The letter asks Senator Obama why he supports the Freedom of Choice Act, which would eliminate parental involvement laws and every other limit on abortion.

The open letter will be placed in newspapers across Ohio.

Copies of the open letter are available at

Obama claims he wants to unite people, yet he says the first thing he will do if elected is to sign the most divisive piece of legislation imaginable. He shows no respect for the vast majority of Americans who do want restrictions on the practice of abortion. If this legislation is signed, many people might refuse to pay their income taxes rather than let their tax dollars be used to pay for abortions, resulting in great civil unrest and disobedience. Catholic hospitals will close rather than be forced to do abortions, doctors and nurses will leave their jobs rather than be forced to do abortions, causing a great shortage of available health care resulting in a terrible health care crisis. He shows amazingly poor judgement if he thinks thats the way to start out his Presidency.

Dear Mr. President Eelect Obama,
Just a thought, did it ever cross your mind that if your Mother had abort you? Well, you would not be in the position you are in today. You speak of giving all children the same opportunities in life as you had and continue to have “to be whatever you want to be.” Mr. Obama these precious children must be born first in order for that to happen. I thank God that your Mother choose “life” your life so that by the grace of God you will be a great President! I beg of you please reconsider your decision on FOCA. Thank you for listening.

Dear President-Elect Obama,
You have the opportunity to become one of the greatest Presidents of the United States by the actions you will take during the first few months of your Presidency. If you choose to become a champion of the unborn and support legislation that will prevent the promulgation of abortion on a wider scale, you will win the support of millions of citizens of this great country. However, if you sign the Freedom of Choice Act which will remove any restrictions on the murder of innocent babies, then I pray for your soul and for the future of our country. Your mother, whom you love so much, could have aborted you. Do you realize that you are a survivor of a culture that would encourage a single mom to just get rid of her mistake? Please think long and hard about the actions you will take. The cries of the just will echo in God’s ears.
