Congress Back in Session, Sanctity of Life Sunday, March for Life


Congress is back in session.  While they’re currently occupied with trying to revive the economy, they will soon turn their focus to expanding the abortion industry.

Sen. Reid’s recently introduced Prevention First Act, which would greatly expand government funding of abortion (among other things), is but one example.  Our legal team is currently studying the text of the bill, and we’ll be posting their analysis at soon.

This Sunday is Sanctity of Life Sunday — a wonderful way to start a week that includes the presidential inauguration and the annual March for Life.  Millions of Americans will go to churches where there will be a special emphasis on the sanctity of human life.  Yet many of those Americans haven’t heard about Congress’ plans to expand abortion through the Freedom of Choice Act (FOCA)  — and other bills like it that would eliminate virtually every pro-life law in the country and force taxpayers to help pay for it.

You can help spread the word.  It’s easy.

Click here

to download a flyer (PDF) about FOCA and print copies for everyone in your congregation.  A version with two flyers on a page, suitable for inserting in church bulletins, is also available.  Please consider taking the bulletin insert to your priest or pastor as an opportunity for your church to spread the word about FOCA.

As of Tuesday night, the Fight FOCA petition has more than 400,000 signers.  Together, we can get tens of thousands more before President-elect Barack Obama even takes the oath of office.

And please come to Washington to march with us next week in the March for Life!  We have Fight FOCA signs for the March this year and we’re looking for volunteers to help pass out the signs and flyers. If you’re going to the March for Life (Thursday, January 22 in Washington, DC) and want to help, please send an email to

We are only able to make this campaign work thanks to friends like you who support the efforts of AUL Action with a financial contribution.  If you’d like to join the financial support team, click here.

Yours for Life,


Charmaine Yoest, Ph.D.
President & CEO
AUL Action The Legislative Arm of Americans United for Life

P.S. — I hope to see you at the March for Life in DC!

I am 17 and a passionate pro-lifer. I believe that as human beings, it is our moral obligation to defend the ones who cannot defend themselves. Since discovering this site in November, I have been telling the people at my church about it, I have spread the word in chat rooms, etc. I agree we should spread the word about this website. I think what you guys are doing is so awesome and honorable.
Let’s stop the abortion Holocaust and defeat FOCA!

lLife is not Planned parenthood’s choice -it is God’s choice! I am 99%behind you but please consider the fact that – but for your mother’s choice you could have been aborted – legally … thank God you were not…….and in the future please do not take my tax dollars to pay for Planned Parenthood……There but for the grace of God go I…..
