Washington, DC (LifeNews.com) — A group of more than 80 pro-life Congressional Republicans have issued a letter calling on President Barack Obama to back down from his pledge to sign the Freedom of Choice Act. Obama made the pledge in July 2007 at a Planned Parenthood event.
At the time, Obama said he would make the radical bill the first piece of legislation he would sign as president.
“The first thing I’d do as president is sign the Freedom of Choice Act,” Obama said at the time. “On this fundamental issue, I will not yield. And Planned Parenthood will not yield.”
House Republican leader John Boehner of Ohio sent Obama the letter signed by his colleagues asking him to reverse his pledge to sign the FOCA bill that would make unlimited abortions the national law.
