Representative Marlin Stutzman (R-IN) recently described how his 17-year-old mother had nearly aborted him in 1975. On a cold December night in 1975, her home burned to the ground and she had taken refuge in her neighbor’s home. Added to the tragedy of losing her home, she had also just learned that she was pregnant.
Today is the last day that the public can comment on the Health and Human Services mandate that nearly all employers – including religious ones – provide insurance coverage for sterilization, contraception and abortion pills.
The federal government – with the consent of Barack Hussein Obama and HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius are determined to force religious institutions, charitable groups, and religious business owners to provide services that violate their religious beliefs and conscience.
Social conservatives in Massachusetts are few in number and seem doomed to have another RINO or Ted Kennedy in the upcoming special election for Kerry’s vacated seat. The primary is to be held on April 30.
In January, 2013, South Carolina state Senator Larry Grooms (R) received the South Carolina Citizens For Life Award from one of the most effective pro-life groups in that state. Grooms is currently running for the U.S. Congress in the First Congressional District. He has been endorsed by GING-PAC. Grooms has been in the S.C. legislature since 1997 and has succeeded in getting at least 10 pro-life bills passed.
Rick Santorum could have been President of the United States, but the Republican establishment and the likes of Karl Rove decided that social issues were too controversial. So, they picked Mitt Romney, a RINO who led the GOP to defeat last November. Rove and his ilk managed to lose what should have been a slam dunk victory over one of the most corrupt politicians in our nation’s history. They ran from social issues and they lost. Our nation will suffer dearly for this political blunder.
The Congressional Prayer Caucus, co-founded by GING-PAC ally Rep. Randy Forbes (R-VA) recently published a survey of lawsuits against the HHS abortion, contraceptive and sterilization mandates in Obamacare.
The Caucus notes: “The mandate requires most employers to sponsor employee health plans that that cover abortion-inducing drugs, sterilization, and contraceptives—despite the fact that these services directly violate many employers’ religious beliefs. Although the mandate contains a narrow exemption for churches, many religious hospitals, charities, and schools must comply or face significant fines. In addition, private companies owned by people of faith have no relief whatsoever. If they choose to operate their businesses in accordance with their faith, many will face crippling fines.”
Not only is Planned Parenthood getting richer by collecting public bailouts for abortion services, they’re also profiting off the taxpayer by making abortion services the core of their so-called family planning support – they try to push abortions on women so they can make more money. To make matters even worse, these big abortion businesses have been found to be complicit in promoting sex-selection abortions, facilitating human trafficking, engaging in coercive behavior, and failing to maintain financial records in accordance with the law, to name just a few things.
Yesterday, the U.S. Supreme Court ordered the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals to rehear a lawsuit against Obamacare by attorneys for Liberty University.
Mathew Staver, who Dean of Liberty University Law School is representing Liberty University and is founder of Liberty Counsel, a religious freedom law firm, is encouraged by the Supreme Court edict.
The Supreme Court upheld Obamacare’s individual mandate for purchasing health insurance, but didn’t rule on religious and conscience issues originally raised in Liberty University’s lawsuit.
“Religious liberty cannot be confined to the sanctuary and sacristy. Such a truncated view of religion threatens to create a barren public culture, denuded of the religious beliefs of ordinary American citizens. This is an important principle, and it applies to all Americans and to all faiths.”
