Share YOUR WTF?!

When you spread the word about FOCA, take photos and video!  Make YouTube videos and post them here!  Let us know what happened out on the streets by posting in your own words what happened!

If nothing particularly exciting happened while you were spreading the word, handing out fliers, using your facebook, twitter or aim status to say WTF?! then just let all of us know what you did!  This will give others ideas and let us know how many pro-life people were invovled!

    I am so against abortions and will do everything in my power to stop this act, but if I shouldn’t succeed I think its entirely unacceptable to expect some of my tax dollars to fund this disgusting attack on human life that I am and so many others are against.

  2. Removing barriers against abortion isn’t about reducing abortions, it’s about increasing them. It’s not about caring for women, it’s about treating them as commodities to be handled with as much respect as a 2×4. Listen to Yvonne Florczak-Seeman’s description of the abortion process — she had FIVE before she was 20 years old (seems nobody mentioned that antibiotics and birth control don’t mix!). To have a choice, you have to talk to the doctor — she wasn’t allowed to; it took too much time. Get ’em in and get ’em out!

    I twittered! We need to keep speaking out! Thanks for the hard work!

    Just posted the site one my status. Cannot believe reasonable people would actually want FOCA passed- it just goes against common sense as well as morals, natural law, and pretty much the difference between right and wrong. The more we educate people the more understanding can be fostered and someday I hope to live to see the day that Roe v. Wade is overturned and states can decide on this extremely personal, controversial issue be turned over to each individual state (just as the wonderful John McCain wants!) Keep the faith alive and keep the world in your prayers every day!

    • s&m says:

      I wonder if you will be happy if states keep abortions? id say no you dont care about rights you care about what you believe being the law. I hope to live long enough to see the final church abandoned as people turn to tolerance and love and really reading what their prophets said and did.

  5. JoAnn says:

    Changed my FB status — thanks! Praying for your mission — our mission — to end abortion!

  6. Anna says:

    I did change my FB status…thanks for giving me a chance to try and convince people to do this! We should not give away a person’s right of free choice-that is not the way to solve this problem. Instead, we should educate people on how abortion truly works, and if they want to take the chances, then let them. FOCA is not the way to stop abortions by not allowing the woman to have trained doctors or eliminating health and safety regulations. Keep the mission in your prayers!!!

    Tomorrow’s “What the FOCA?!” Day of Action happens to fall on the 21st anniversary of the Morgentaler decision–the case that overturned all abortion laws in Canada in 1988. In Canada 21 years later, a pregnancy can be terminated up to 9 months for no medical reason, and taxpayers (a la universal healthcare) will foot the bill. In the interest of not letting FOCA lead the US in the same direction, I’ll be spreading the word tomorrow, and have changed my facebook status.

    Choose Life McGill is behind you!

  8. Lorelle says:

    Changed my facebook status.
    If, in fact, FOCA should be signed into law, I have my application for residency in Costa Rica ready. Time to go somewhere a little more realistic.

  9. Mae says:

    I changed my facebook status. 🙂
    just doing what I can!!!

  10. Raina says:

    I changed my status.

  11. Frank says:

    I wrote a note accessible to friends ( I have hundreds) and networks (I have group based access)on Facebook in which while discussing other things I specifically denounced FOCA. I also wrote a forceful e-mail to my congressman denouncing FOCA and urging him to stop it if he can. I have made it clear that I oppose FOCA when it is discussed. I think our country is going down the tubes and FOCA is only part of the process, but I will struggle while I can.

  12. Angela says:

    So I changed my status. My friends and I are in high school, but they don’t believe the same thing as me. I am getting the word out for all those who will listen.

    Facebook Status has been changed :]

  13. Joanne Cromer says:

    I changed my status to read: Joanne is fighting FOCA and remembering Fr. Neuhaus: “We shall not weary, we shall not rest, until every unborn child is protected in law and welcomed in life.”

  14. Liz says:

    changed my status to “what the FOCA?”

  15. Coletta says:

    We each have a circle of influence and that influence extends further than we realize. Tell your loved ones, your children and your childrens’ children about the beauty of life as a precious gift from God. Do not be deterred! God will bless and multiply your efforts. I have seen this come to fruition in my own life. God bless each of you and your efforts to support the miracle of each and every life.

  16. Jessica Shaw says:

    I changed my facebook status a few days ago to say that FOCA is bad for our women and our nation, and it spurred this huge debate/argument between 3 guys on campus. Check out my facebook page to see what happened. (Friend me, I’d love to have you as my ally in this fight against the modern Holocaust 🙂

  17. Andy M. says:

    Changed my FB status to What The FOCA?! Praying that this thing doesn’t get passed…

  18. Ryuu says:

    I support the FOCA. It should be everyone’s responsibility to accept the results of their actions, learn for themselves, and choose for themselves. Just as faith cannot be forced on people by the government, neither can morals. Abortion, as a choice that rests on some of the most fundamental human questions of life and how far man’s power should reach in controlling it, needs to be given more respect than to make it an issue of government policy. People need to find ways (and should find ways, in my opinion) to make a strong pro-life stand that does not revolve around getting anti-abortion laws passed. Women should be led to make a choice not out of necessity or moral pressure, but out of true understanding of the issue and care for themselves and the unborn child. A woman’s choice should be based on HER morals, not your morals, and if you truly stand in the right, then you must have faith that the women making this difficult choice will come to follow your principles of their own free will.

  19. Carlo Santa Teresa says:

    I changed my status on Facebook. Not much else to do because of inclement weather here, but I’m sure people will see the action and join in to end this culture of death.

  20. Edith says:

    In order to be more affective and reach more people, you should change your name to Students for Life or People for Life and drop the name you’ve chosen, are the responses I’ve received, because ‘What the FOCA’ sounds too much like foul language. We’re all trying to stop a holocaust, to stop this genocide, to stop mass murder, to change governments that don’t care about human rights. We’re a civil rights group. We need all people who are against abortion to join with us. We need to unite and stand united, defending the right to life, speaking out for the voiceless.

  21. Meghan Garcia says:

    changed my facebok status 🙂

  22. Steph says:

    Facebook and AIM status messages changed, also trying to post some info sheets around town, though the extreme downpour of snow last night makes it rather difficult.
    When talking to an extreme Obama fan pre-election, I told her my pro-life stance in being a big component on how I vote. She told me that I need to be concerned with more “important” issues at this time. Obama has stated that FOCA will be the first act he will sign when he becomes president. How is that for important? And what is more important than the life of a child?!
    Pro-life or pro-choice, NO ONE wins if FOCA is passed.
    WHAT THE FOCA!

  23. it makes me sick that someone with children(obama) would let something go on in this world like abortion…my father in law said it best….” if they kill a baby in the birth canal its abortion, but once it comes out and someone kills it its called murder??? no….its exactly the same thing!”

  24. John D. says:

    Chain texts! they have annoyed me for so long but i realized that they might be a great way to spread the word!!

  25. Margaret Blackwell says:

    And don’t dream of changing the group name. It’s perfect.

  26. allie says:

    i just changed my fbook status 🙂

  27. Audra says:

    I just posted this link on Delicious & am calling friends right now to tell them about it. Sign the petition!

  28. Sue says:

    I helped some women in our church mail 2,500 postcards to our Illinois Senators and House Reps to request them to vote against FOCA!

  29. Jere says:

    Status changed WTF!

  30. tammy says:

  31. Mary says:

  34. Bridget Deutsch says:

    I wrote a blog post about it.

    http://www.idioteradication.blogspot.com

  35. Melissa says:

    well, to start off i changed my facebook status to What the FOCA?!?!.. then i started telling all the people i was that it was wat the FOCA activism day… so yeah. i argued the point a couple times. i just think it is absolutely unacceptable that doctors would not have a choice. freedom of choice?!? i don’t think so!

    • Melissa says:

      ok that sounded dumb… i meant i started telling all the people i met that it was not all the people i was… lol.

  36. Gabrielle says:

    I have signed several petitions and have, of course, set my status on facebook to the link of this website. My friends have all become much more informed, and have gotten a great kick out of WTF?

  37. Brooke Petit says:

    Along with two of my friends we messaged 893 of our friends informing them about FOCA and providing them links to multiple websites. My school went to the march for life as well and it was amazing. Also I am the co-founder of an after school prayer group and we informed all the members about Obama’s plans for FOCA and provided them with resources to educate their peers.

    Everyone, may God continue to bless you. Thank you for everything you’re doing!

  38. Shane says:

    I also talked with my theology class and teacher about FOCA. Whenever I hear someone say that a woman has the right to choose, my blood starts boiling. It would be a dream come true if abortion no longer existed in this country.

  39. Natalie says:

    I changed my FB status. It’s time for FOCA to dissapear. Keep up the fight everyone! =)

  40. Natalie says:

    I chaged my FB status! Keep up the fight everyone! =)

  41. Natalie says:

    I changed my FB status. Keep up the fight everyone! =) We can do it!!!

  42. Merie says:

    Too often we tend to debate the issue of abortion from a religious view point. Time to adjust strategy and get more people involve. Abortion is crime against the origins of the unborn. It is a civil rights issue.

    I believe a woman has the right to choose. But once that woman makes the decision to have sex and get pregnant then she gave up the right to destroy her fetus unless her life is in danger. If she was raped, she should seek medical attention as soon as possible and not wait until 3 months and then decides she wants to abort it.

    The federal government needs to get out of the business of funding abortions. So many Not For Profit organizations and charities are promtoing abortions. Why should American Tax payers money go to overseas groups to fund China One child per family abortion quotas? The sad thing about this is the developing world will see an increase number of abortion factories especially in places such as Africa and Asia. Some liberals believe that the world is over populated and the only way to control poverty is for poor people to have more abortions.

    According to the information on http://www.blackgenocide.org, “Several years ago, when 17,000 aborted babies were found in a dumpster outside a pathology laboratory in Los, Angeles, California, some 12-15,000 were observed to be black.” This incidence of abortion has resulted in a tremendous loss of life. It has been estimated that since 1973 Black women have had about 16 million abortions. Michael Novak had calculated “Since the number of current living Blacks (in the U.S.) is 36 million, the missing 16 million represents an enormous loss, for without abortion, America’s Black community would now number 52 million persons. It would be 36 percent larger than it is. Abortion has swept through the Black community like a scythe, cutting down every fourth member… The founder of Planned Parenthood said, “Colored people are like human weeds and are to be exterminated.” Is her vision being fulfilled today?

    How frightening sad that Barack Obama mother gave him life and he will go down in history as the most pro abortion President. Obama says he wants to reduce the number of abortions. What if more Americans had just stood by and say we want to reduce the number of slaves and not end slavery? For the few that risk life and death slavery was defeated.

  43. I have a FOCA widget on my ‘culture of life’ blog.

  44. Adam Morse says:

    I changed my avatar on Facebook to what your “What the FOCA” buttons are suppose to look like. Also used the same image as my Twitter avatar, @madtownmorse. Also updated my status last night, and also today, swearing like an Australian “WTF mate?!”

  45. Jim Haley says:

    Like many others, I changed my Fb status. Keep it up everyone!

  46. Taylor says:

    Well me and my friend both changed our personal messages to What the FOCA. Then me and my best friend started telling our friends about FOCA, and have actually started to make a video, but we still need some more people. Also we made headbands that said What the FOCA, and I put it on my socks and shoes!

  47. Mary says:

    I changed my FB status to say that I’m pondering, “What the FOCA?!” and gave the website. I also posted that awesome video on my FB page!

  48. Anne says:

    Bradley University Students for Life distributed over 200 full or half-page flyers in our Student Center. Also, a bunch of us went out last night and “flyered” the dorms and various academic buildings. We were able to talk to Res Life staff and even the student body president, who assured us that this legislation would be discussed at the next Student Senate meeting. WTF?!?!

  49. Too bad your t-shirts don’t have the child on it with the WTF? as the Facebook group. It hits home. Please consider making these too! I would be in for buying one in a heartbeat.

  50. Teresa says:

    I donated my facebook status

  51. Matt says:

    I changed my facebook status!

    Our Students for Life group at IIT also promoted the What the FOCA campaign throughout the student org fair. We handed out hundreds of the mini-fliers and posters and sparked a lot of meaningful conversation!

    I must stress to maintain a positive outlook while doing this type of activism. There were plenty of cold shoulders and rude people that crossed our path today, but they were nothing compared to the deep and involved dialogues about FOCA and what it means for our women and our nation.

    Keep up the good work!

  52. Kacey says:

    Can you get a myspace page together as well?…… There are a lot of vulnerable people in those communities that need the light of truth!

  53. Lesia says:

    Here in Michigan, I passed out fliers to ppl at my college campus. I observed ppl reading the handout. Honestly, I’m going to ask my campus ministry to organize some kind of group so I don’t have to do it alone.

  54. Jennie RR says:

    At Loyola we printed out flyers from the website and had a ton of those postcard petitions. We then set up a bake sale in the most trafficed building on campus. While the baked goods drew people in, we would in form them about FOCA. We even bribed them with free cookies/brownies if they signed the postcards. We ran out of post cards, flyers, and had a few great conversations. Overall, success!

  55. Liz says:

    A couple of us distributed the mini WTF flyers around campus near the computers and to other popular areas. The WTF made people curious and I was told some picked them up to see what it was all about. I also stuffed the on campus mailboxes with the 1/2 page flyers and received an e-mail today from a student who is interested in joining our student org. That made my day! I also posted the posters around campus.

  56. Teresa says:

    I changed my status to spread the word. and I give my prayers to the cause!

  57. Brad Anderson says:

    You don’t think people should have the right to choose?? Oh yea have the Government tell you what you should do. Give me a brake! Get off the crosss we need the wood!
