An Open Letter to President-Elect Obama on Behalf of All Ohio Parents

Hi everyone. I've posted about the FOCA on my Blog before, but I feel it's important to continue helping to get this out there for people to be aware of. I encourage you to share this with others and to sign the petition on the Fight FOCA website.

Exceprts from the Open Letter to President-Elect Obama follow, plus a link to the whole letter on the FOCA website.

Dear President-Elect Obama,

A 14-year-old girl walked into a Planned Parenthood clinic in Cincinnati, accompanied by her soccer coach, John Haller. He was 21 years old and had initiated sexual activity with the girl when she was 13. Now that she was pregnant, Haller wanted her to have an abortion.

Rather than calling the parents as required under Ohio law, Planned Parenthood called the soccer coach’s cell phone and failed to verify he was the parent.

President-Elect Obama, why do you oppose these parental involvement laws that protect our children from sexual abuse?
