The Supreme Court will soon hear two religious, for-profit businesses’ challenges to the Mandate. I’ll be filing an amicus (“friend of the court”) brief on behalf of WSFT so we’ll all be represented before the Court!  I’ll share it when I’m finished, but in brief, it argues that the government has never demonstrated the “compelling state interest” that the law requires before it is permitted to burden religion. This argument takes me through our evidence on the increased rates of abortions and nonmarital and intended births since the government got heavily involved in contraception distribution.

It signaled the government’s disregard for Constitutional and federal law protecting religious freedom rights. And it triggered an almost immediate response of legal challenges to the administrations’ audacious breach of those rights. Read more…

Abortion Free Healthcare

October 1st, 2013 Comments off

Obamacare has a drawn a line in healthcare, and it is a line that we cannot cross. Read more…
