Missouri, Oklahoma Legislators File Resolutions Against FOCA Abortion Bill


From LifeNews.com:

Jefferson City, MO (LifeNews.com) — State lawmakers in Missouri and Oklahoma have filed resolutions condemning the Freedom of Choice Act, a radical Congressional bill that would make unlimited abortions a national law. The federal bill would also overturn hundreds of pro-life state laws in every state across the country.

While the resolutions don’t have the force of law, they are a way for state lawmakers to opine on Congressional activity.

In Missouri, Springfield Rep. Bob Dixon introduced a resolution that 110 House members have signed onto as sponsors condemning FOCA.

“The vast majority of Missourians will agree that any federal legislation that would encourage partial-birth abortion or invalidate any current state laws dealing with partial-birth abortion should never be given serious consideration,” Dixon said.

“We hope to send a message to our federal delegation that we are counting on them to do the right thing,” he added.

Dixon worries the bill will overturn state laws such as parental consent and health requirements for abortion businesses that protect women and have forced the closing of some unsafe abortion centers.
