As Christians who also happen to be under the authority of civil governments (Romans 13:1-7), we belong to two kingdoms–one earthly, one heavenly.

As good citizens of the earthly kingdom, we are commanded to pray for those in positions of civil authority (1 Timothy 2:1-4).  As good citizens of the heavenly kingdom, our ultimate allegiance belongs to Christ; so that even as we pray for our leaders, we’re to “take no part in the unfruitful works of darkness, but instead expose them” (Ephesians 5:11)

The Fight FOCA petition is about exposing the dark, unfruitful work of abortion, and opposing it.  I urge you to prayerfully read and sign the petition, and contact your legislators.

The Freedom of Choice Act (FOCA) is a disastrous piece of legislation.  Here is a blurb from the Fight FOCA website:

FOCA Would Wipe Away Every Restriction on Abortion Nationwide

This would eradicate state and federal laws that the majority of Americans support, such as:

  • Bans on Partial Birth Abortion
  • Requirements that women be given information about the risks of getting an abortion
  • Only licensed physicians can perform abortions
  • Parents must be informed and give consent to their minor daughter’s abortion

FOCA would erase these laws and prevent states from enacting similar protective measures in the future.

I hope and pray that you respond like men and women of courage, faith, and conviction to this potentially tragic overthrow of 25 years worth of pro-life gains.
