Why ‘What The FOCA?!’ ?

When you heard about the Freedom of Choice Act was your initial reaction something like…”WTF?!”  That is the reaction most people have on both sides.  This legislation is extreme and it will not pass if we have an informed and active public.  This site exists to encourage YOU to be active in spreading your astonishment and indignation about the Freedom of Choice Act.

Isn’t ‘What The FOCA?!’ Offensive?

Yes, it references a phrase that is offensive.  However, unrestricted abortion is much, much more offensive.  Using this phrase points to that fact.  In addition, “WTF” is common to the language of the culture.  If we say… “Stop the Freedom of Choice Act!” that is meaningful to those of us who know about FOCA, but it is meaningless to those who do not.  If we say…”What the FOCA?!” it piques the interest of the culture and conveys the ridiculousness of the Freedom of Choice Act all in just three words.  Then, you can start to elaborate through dialogue.

What Will We Do?

The WTF?! Project will kick-off with a Day of Action on Wednesday, January 28th when you will focus on educating the people around you about FOCA. We will provide materials for you.  Please join us in a DAY OF ACTION against FOCA!

You can also sign our petition.

Then What’s Next?

The Day of Action and the Petition are just the beginning.  Sign up to get Action Alerts so that you know the breaking news about FOCA and similar threats.  That way, you can respond quickly to STOP FOCA.   See sidebar.


All people whether democrat or republican, young or old, conservative or liberal, male or female, etc. should be fully educated what the ‘Freedom of Choice Act’ really is.  The vast majority of Americans are against the kind of changes that FOCA would make.
