Today the U.S. Supreme Court upheld the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act along with the bureaucratic mandate that promises to fine or even jail employers, insurers and private citizens who act on pro-life principles in the health care arena.
“Obamacare” – an unconstitutional and unwarranted intrusion of government into civil liberty, religious liberty, and the private sector – jeopardizes the very existence of many businesses, charitable organizations, religious communities, Catholic schools and hospitals.
The insurance mandate seeks to coerce individuals into financing and facilitating procedures and drugs that violate their consciences and take innocent human lives.
Live Action President Lila Rose expressed the determination of many to continue to oppose the unjust legislation.
“Today’s Supreme Court ruling strikes at the heart of both Life and Liberty. Planned Parenthood and the abortion industry expect to make a killing off of Obamacare’s unconstitutional, socialized medicine scheme.”
She continued, “Today, the Supreme Court has upheld nothing more than a Ponzi scheme to expand the abortion business. If this legislation is not overturned by the next administration, Obamacare’s socialist-style diktats will be used, not to provide better or more affordable health care, but to expand Planned Parenthood’s abortion empire across the backs of American taxpayers and people of conscience – and at the expense of our religious freedoms.
“In light of today’s ruling, Americans will greet Independence Day with prayer, sacrifice, and renewed energy to continue our opposition to this mandate. We must also recommit ourselves to restoring full constitutional protections of Life and Liberty to the most vulnerable in our society: unborn children.”
