    Worse than FOCA: Prevention First Act

    This act, introduced three weeks ago, is more dangerous than FOCA because it is already in Congress.

    {updated} Select things the Prevention First Act (PFA) will do:

    • Make Title X (family planning) a permanent program and fund it at $700 million or more.
    • Mandate that health insurance programs that cover prescriptions must cover abortifacient contraceptives.
    • Create a government program to push abortifacient "Emergency Contraception."
    • Take all federal money away from any hospital that refuses to administer the abortifacient Emergency Contraception to victims of rape.
    • Create additional massive government funding for Planned Parenthood style sex education programs (abstinence-only programs are specifically excluded from funding).
      Permanently include family planning services as part of the Medicaid program.

    "All of these programs will result in more babies being killed and more taxpayer money going to the largest abortion chain in the nation ? Planned Parenthood." - {Source.}

    American Life League has a comprehensive overview of what this bill will bring about should it pass.

    LifeNews also covered this story. They recommend contacting members of the U.S. Senate.
