On November 5, I said:
“Now is the time to dialogue with Obama on the issue of life. Now that he is victor, the next stage is to work with him. This also means to be critical, to be sure, but also to engage what he has said. I think a petition or letter which quotes ALL that he has said positive about working with pro-lifers for removing the causes of abortion, and even of his support for restrictions on late-term abortion, needs to be made, before he is in office, and somehow got to him. It needs to suggest that 1) FOCA and his quotes do not go hand and hand, and 2) better postpone FOCA and let the dialogue happen and see what comes from it, especially since it would contradict his notion that abortion can be restricted. The time is now. “
If anyone is willing to work with me on this, let me know. I have already begun that which I said we should do; but it will be better if we have more people involved. To start things off, I hope to get a final draft of an open letter to Obama written, and sent out, by the 14th (sending it to newspapers and Obama). The more people who would be willing to sign such a letter the better.
