When President Obama was on the campaign trail, he promised Planned Parenthood that the “first thing” he would do as President would be to sign the Freedom of Choice Act (FOCA)–a bill that would strike down all regulations on abortion, denying Americans their rights of conscience, and forcing taxpayers to fund the destruction of unborn life.
But word got out, and the outcry from pro-life Americans–including the hundreds of thousands who joined AUL Action’s Fight FOCA campaign–caused the President to delay carrying out his promise. Instead, he embarked upon a campaign of FOCA by stealth, building the most pro-abortion presidential administration in history. That effort continues with Obama’s latest nomination to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission’s executive panel, pro-abortion lawyer Chai Feldblum, who formerly worked for the American Civil Liberties Union.
Feldblum isn’t known by most Americans, but she worked for the pro-abortion Human Rights Campaign Fund and, from 1986-1987, she clerked for Supreme Court Justice Harry A. Blackmun, the infamous judge who handed down the Roe v. Wade decision that has allowed more than 51 million abortions.
Feldblum’s nomination is particularly threatening to rights of conscience. She considers the legal right to abortion as necessary for “sexual liberty.” In cases where religious liberty–e.g. the right of a doctor to refuse performing an abortion on religious grounds–and “sexual liberty” conflict, she’s gone on record saying “having a hard time coming up with any case in which religious liberty should win.”
