What Is The First Thing Obama Will Do If Elected?
Obama is letting the world know that he’s got plans for US All.
Obama has his priorities.
And what’s the very first thing Obama says he will do?
Focus like a laser beam on the economy?
End the war in Iraq?
Raise taxes on capital gains?
The First Thing Obama will do in officeThe first thing Obama promises to do is to get the government between the parent and child.
To keep a mom from knowing if her child had an abortion.

Dear Senator Obama:
In 2004, 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.
Planned Parenthood turned a blind eye and performed the abortion.
Afterward, they provided the girl with a bag of condoms and a Depo-Provera shot.
Thirty-six states across the country require some form of parental notification or
consent prior to an abortion involving a minor child. And these laws are supported by
80% of the American people.
In addition to the obvious reason that parents need to be involved when their child
undergoes a medical procedure, these laws also protect young girls from sexual abuse.
Research shows that the majority of young girls who are sexually active are having sex
with adult men.
Senator Obama, why do you OPPOSE these parental notification laws that
protect our children from sexual abuse?
Despite Planned Parenthood’s actions, the parents of the Cincinnati teenager found out
about her abortion and the sexual abuse perpetrated by her soccer coach. Eventually
John Haller was convicted of seven counts of sexual battery and served three years in
Senator Obama, the mainstream media refuses to ask you these questions, so we will:
Why have you promised Planned Parenthood that the first piece of legislation you
will pass is the Freedom of Choice Act, a piece of abortion legislation which would
eliminate all of the common-sense parental notification laws across the country?
