Obama Pressured to Advance Abortion and Sexualization of Children

A coalition of pro-abortion groups has submitted a proposal of steps President-elect Barack Obama can take during his first 100 days in office to advance a pro-abortion agenda.

-- From "Pro-Abortion Groups Post ‘Wish List’ on Obama’s Web Site" by Penny Starr, Senior Staff Writer, 1/14/09

A coalition of pro-abortion groups, including Planned Parenthood, the National Organization for Women, the Guttmacher Institute, NARAL Pro-Choice America, and the American Civil Liberties Union, have posted a reproductive health wish list on the Obama Transition Team Web site,

The list outlines the steps the groups think the next president should take during his first 100 days in office to promote and fund abortion in America and around the globe.

The 50-plus-page document, “Advancing Reproductive Rights and Health in a New Administration,” is a laundry list of actions that the coalition says president-elect Barack Obama should put in place to “advance a reproductive health agenda that will make a profound difference in the lives and health of women, men and family in the United States and around the world.”

The actions the document calls for partly include [increasing federal funding of Planned Parenthood by more than double; funding of abortions for Medicaid-eligible women, federal employees, etc.; de-funding abstinence-only programs; removing age restrictions for over-the-counter emergency contraceptives; and more.]

[Also, the document] calls on Congress to pass the Freedom of Choice Act [FOCA], which would strike down all state and federal laws that restrict abortion and make federally funded abortions available in all 50 states.
