FOCA on back burner with Obama

From the 100 day speech of President Obama on FOCA from CNSNews here:
“The Freedom of Choice Act is not the highest legislative priority,” Obama told reporters at a prime time news conference marking his 100th day in office. “I believe that women should have the right to choose. But I think that the most important thing we can do to tamp down some of the anger surrounding this issue is to focus on those areas that we can agree on."

President Obama, there is no anger surrounding this issue. It is the right of the unborn we are defending and the rights of the States to decide on the issue.
This is what FOCA will do if it is passed:
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.
