Obama's Promise to Moloch: FOCA

Moloch (also 'molek', from Hebrew m'l'k) was the god who demanded child sacrifice in Punic culture, and one monument to him was found in Carthage. It's entirely possible that the Minotaur was another representation. There were other names including, but not limited to, Ba'al, Apis Bull, Golden Calf, Chemosh. See:

Moloch's modern American descendants (NARAL and Planned Parenthood) are doing quite well, thank you. And Barack Obama would like them to do even better.

In a speech before the Planned Parenthood Action Fund last year, he made the promise that the first thing he would do as President would be to sign the Freedom of Choice Act.

What would be the effects of FOCA?

...FOCA goes far beyond guaranteeing the right to an abortion throughout the nine months of pregnancy. It arrogantly prohibits any law or policy interfering with that right. While advocates trumpet this law as the triumph of the freedom of choice, they hide the dark reality that the law would actually inhibit choice.

Laws protecting the rights of nurses, doctors and hospitals with moral objections to abortion would no longer stand. Health and safety regulations for abortion clinics would also vanish. ...the law would force taxpayers to fund abortions

"Waiting periods," and parental notification and consent laws would also be eradicated.

And the gruesome literal re-creation of Moloch is included:

Advocates of FOCA redefine a woman’s “health” so as to expressly permit post-viability abortions. Thus, a child who survives an abortion can be left to die for the health of the mother.

---something Obama failed to ensure when he was an Illinois Senator, because (unlike him) the majority of those Senators were repulsed by the prospect.

The Bishop of Paterson, NJ does not like Moloch.

We shouldn't, either.
