n 2009, during Obama’s State of the Union Speech, Congressman Joe Wilson (R-SC) shouted out “You lie” when Obama claimed that the so-called Affordable Care Act wouldn’t provide health care for illegal aliens, would not include federal funding for abortion – and would protect freedom of conscience for those opposing abortion.
“Under the Affordable Care Act, massive amounts of public funds in the form of tax credits — $796 billion in direct spending over 10 years, according to the Congressional Budget Office — will pay for insurance plans, many, perhaps most of which will include elective abortion. That massively violates the Hyde amendment.”
“Fifty-six million boys and girls who never drew a breath of air. Poets and inventors, doctors and athletes, explorers and musicians, the world is far the poorer for their loss.
“Every human life is a precious gift from God, and our law should protect innocent human life. Yet 41 years ago, the Supreme Court’s Roe v. Wade decision overturned the Texas law that prohibited abortion on demand.
“You, the marchers – the advocates, who don’t mind enduring the worst weather Washington could throw at you for the opportunity to change one heart and one mind – you are our movement’s not-so-secret weapon. You are our strongest advocates, and those of us in public office are merely fortunate to stand on your shoulders. I stand here today with colleagues, with others, with much hope. Some of you have been marching for over 40 years and have endured many setbacks, including the recent expansion of abortion coverage in ObamaCare.
Thousands of pro-life Americans will gather in sub-zero weather today in Washington, D.C. to express their support for the right to life of all unborn children.

The U.S. Senate will soon lose five long-time liberal Democrat Senators. They are: Carl Levin, Tom Harkin, Tim Johnson, Jay Rockefeller, and Max Baucus of Montana – one of the architects of Obamacare.
All of these men have supported Obama’s socialist agenda for America – and liberal causes over the past decades.
“The one lesson Republicans probably will not learn from Ken Cuccinelli’s troubled campaign for Virginia governor is the most important: Politically, the “truce strategy” on abortion fails. If it is not abandoned, it will drag down the GOP.
The Heritage Foundation has just published two reports on the use of Obamacare to fund abortions and to provide abortion providers with unlimited streams of cash for the killing of unborn babies.
The Obamacare abortion, contraception and sterilization mandate is already forcing many Christian-owned businesses to file lawsuits against Obamacare for its violation of their religious liberty.
It is clear that Obama is forcing employers to provide for abortion, contraceptive and sterilization services as a payoff for his abortion industry friends who helped get him elected twice. He also gets the satisfaction of punishing his pro-life enemies who are now being forced to spend hundreds of thousands of dollars in legal fees to protect their religious freedom and freedom of conscience from the pro-abortion president – and an abortion mandate that was not in the original Obamacare law. The mandate was created by HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, who pretends to be a practicing Catholic.
