Letter from Congressman Mike McIntyre

I wrote to Congressman McIntyre expressing concern about the Freedom of Choice Act and received this response:

I appreciate the benefit of knowing your views on this matter, and I share your concerns.
As you know, on April 19,2007 FOCA was introduced in the House of Representatives by Jerrold Nadler and in the Senate by Senator Barbara Boxer. The measure would have codified the Court's decision in Roe by stating that a government may not deny or interfere with a woman's right to choose to bear a child, to terminate a pregnancy prior to viability, or to terminate a pregnancy after viability where termination is necessary to protect the life or hearth of the woman. The act would have also authorized an aggrieved individual to obtain appropriate relief, including relief against a government, in a civil action.
Both measures were pending before their respective Committees and at the end of the 110th Congress. No comparable measure has yet to be introduced in the 111th Congress. Please rest assurred, however, that as a member of the Pro-Life Caucus and someone who has remained committed to doing all that I can to honor life, I will keep your opposition in mind regarding FOCA should it be reintroduced in this Congress. I am pleased to share with you that I have a 100% pro-life voting record.
Thank You for contacting me about this important issue. I will continue to be a strong voice for you in Washington.

WoW!!! I hope he is sincere. I don't trust toooo many politicians, no farther than I can throw him. However I would hope to see more letters akin to this one I received. Thanks Congressman McIntyre!
