Proposal would nullify pro-life laws
To the editor:
In 1973 the U.S. Supreme Court ruled abortions legal throughout a woman's nine months of pregnancy. Abortions were never made legal by congressional approval. This allowed some pro-life laws to be passed such as parental approval, limits on taxpayer funding of abortions, bans on partial-birth abortion and measures allowing women to have information on the risks of abortions and other alternatives.
California Sen. Barbara Boxer and New York Rep. Jerrold Nadler, both Democrats representing states with the highest abortion rates in the country, are reintroducing the Freedom of Choice Act in Congress. This act, which is backed by the ACLU and pro-abortion's NARAL, would codify the Roe v. Wade decision, nullifying all pro-life laws passed since 1973.
Please contact your U.S. senators and representatives and ask them to vote no when the Freedom of Choice Act is reintroduced in Congress.
