Senate Vote on repeal of Obamacare’s mandatory “Church-funded Abortions”
The U.S. Senate will vote this week on an amendment drafted by Sen. Roy Blunt (R-MO) concerning whether to “partially repeal” the portion of Obamacare that requires churches, Catholic hospitals, and Christian universities to pay for their employees abortion insurance. In my opinion the new “conscience” language doesn’t go far enough, nor does it begin to repeal all Obamacare, so we must petition all 100 Senators to REPEAL OBAMACARE ENTIRELY this week, by calling 202-225-3121, or sign our petition here.
Our friend Ashley Horne with Focus on the Family reports: “The U.S. Senate will likely vote this week on an amendment to protect the religious freedom and conscience rights of employers who object to offering possible abortifacient drugs in employee health plans.
“Sen. Roy Blunt, R-Mo., introduced the Respect for Rights of Conscience Act (S.1467) last August, and recently offered the bill as an amendment to transportation legislation being debated this week. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., had previously blocked the amendment from getting a vote.
“The Blunt amendment would exempt objecting employers from new regulations issued by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services requiring them to offer free contraception in their insurance plans. Some contraceptive drugs, like Plan B and ella, may cause early abortions. Some employers, particularly religious ones, say they shouldn’t have to offer such drugs.
“‘(This debate) is not about contraception. It’s about the Constitution,’ Blunt wrote in an opinion piece published in the St. Louis Post-Dispatch Sunday. ‘It’s about faith and who controls the religious views of faith-based institutions.’ ”
Let’s take action to demand Congress repeal ALL of Obamacare, not just “fix” it.
Obama stands firm: “Catholic Hospitals must issue Abortion Pills.” Take Action!
In a private retreat with Senate Democrats, President Obama strengthened his resolve Wednesday, and personally threatened to fully enforce the Obamacare law that will force Catholic and Christian hospitals to issue abortion pills and post-conception abortifacient devices like RU-486, the IUD, and Plan-B, forcing Christians to kill or help kill innocent children in the womb.
ABC News reports: “President Obama ‘reinforced’ his stance on the controversial contraception mandate while speaking at the Democrats’ annual retreat at Nationals Park in Washington, D.C. today, Senate Democrats said.
“The retreat was closed to media.
“Following President Obama’s speech at the retreat, a small group of Senate Democrats, mostly women, left the retreat early in order to hold a news conference on Capitol Hill to counter the Republicans’ news conference today at which they called for the mandate to be overturned.
“Democrats said they will ‘fight strongly’ to keep the [Obamacare] mandate [forcing Christians to issue abortion pills] in place.
“It is our clear understanding from the administration that the president believes as we do, and the vast majority of the American women should have access to [abortion pills],” Sen. Barbara Boxer, D-Calif., said, pointing out that 15 percent of women use [abortion pills] for medical issues. “[Abortion Pills] it’s medicine, and women deserve their medicine” [to be dispensed by Christians who oppose abortion], said Boxer.
House Speaker John Boehner vowed to repeal the parts of Obamacare that mandate Christian hospitals dispense abortion pills. [I say we repeal ALL of Obamacare.]
“It’s time to tell Republicans ‘mind your own business,’” said Sen. Frank Lautenberg, D-N.J. “Ideology should never be used to block women from getting the [abortion pills] they need [to kill their unborn children] to lead healthier lives [dispensed by Christians who oppose abortion, who will be punished if they refuse to dispense abortion pills].”
FOLKS, LET’S DEMAND CONGRESS REPEAL ALL OF OBAMACARE. Please help.
Obama forces Christian Hospitals to issue Abortion Pills. Take Action!
Pro-life Senator Orrin Hatch (R-UT) said in October that “a regulation the Obama administration has proposed under the new health-care law enacted last year would require religious employers to provide their workers with abortifacients, which are drugs that kill an unborn child,” reports CNS News.
Hatch also said that Obamacare’s “threat to individual liberty was one of the most serious issues we’ve ever seen in the history of this Republic…This administration has imposed upon religious beliefs and religious employers provisions that literally would lead to having to give abortifacients, and it is very ambiguous on that point, and also other matters that many religious institutions are opposed to. And government shouldn’t be doing that.”
By imposing abortion on Christian hospitals, Obamacare causes “an erosion of First Amendment rights, especially religious rights,” said Hatch. “I don’t want to see us erode the rights of free people to believe the way they want to, and to worship the way they want to, and to support religious institutions the way they want to.”
Hatch delivered a speech to the Heritage Foundation entitled, “Why Obamacare is Harming, Not Helping, Our Health Care System and Our Economy,” in which he called the individual mandate of Obamacare “unconstitutional” and burdensome on citizens.
Hatch called for total repeal of Obamacare. He described the potential threat posed by the plan as “one of the most serious issues we’ve ever seen in the history of this Republic.”
H.R. 2 and H.R. 9 both directly repeal Obamacare and its funding, restoring religious liberty and protections for unborn children. Would you please sign our petition, and we will instantly fax up to 535 members of the House and Senate, (saving you much time?)
Last January a Florida Federal judge ruled the new health care law known as Obamacare is unconstitutional, and must be thrown out. In his ruling, Judge Roger Vinson said that the law’s requirement to carry insurance or pay a fee “is outside Congress’ Commerce Clause power, and it cannot be otherwise authorized by an assertion of power under the Necessary and Proper Clause. It is not constitutional.” He also declared that the entire law “must be declared void,” because the mandate to carry insurance is “not severable” from the rest of the law. This differs slightly from a similar ruling last month by a Virginia Federal judge Henry E. Hudson, who ruled the individual mandate is unconstitutional, but other parts of the law may be OK.
Virginia and Florida’s Attorney Generals are two of 26 states suing to overturn Obamacare, many who joined suit after receiving thousands of fax petitions from The Pray In Jesus Name Project, proving your faxes get results.
H.R. 2 and H.R. 9 are two important bills that the Republican Majority in the House promised during campaigns, and we need a strong showing by those conservatives we helped elect, for three reasons:
1. Obamacare law funds abortion with our tax-dollars, despite President Obama’s judicially unenforceable Executive Order that pretends to save the unborn while funding their destruction.
2. Obamacare mandates health-care rationing which creates “death panels” for the elderly by diverting their Medicare funds to young unemployed welfare recipients, and forcing Medicare physicians into bankruptcy.
3. Obamacare creates socialist government-control of 1/6th of the U.S. economy under massive bureaucracies that hurt businesses, cost jobs, and don’t care for patients like private doctors do.
We need to take immediate action and petition all 435 Congressmen and 100 Senators to approve H.R. 2 and H.R. 9, which do two things:
1. H.R. 2 repeals the pro-abortion, pro-death, rationing Obamacare law passed last year.
2. H.R. 9 instructs committees to begin work crafting a new bill to reform health care using principles of free-market capitalism that make America great (not socialism/Communism).
So let’s take action today.
Do you remember the legislative battle in the House and Senate last March? Former Congressman Bart Stupak (D-MI) betrayed conservatives by claiming to be pro-life, then voting with Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) to fund abortion. Senator Ben Nelson (D-NE) did the same, betraying innocent children in the Senate. They initiated a phony compromise with President Obama who signed a toothless Executive Order (which conflicts with the law, and is unenforceable in court) to give them top-cover to claim they’re not funding abortion, when the law they all passed specifically stated on page 117:
“(ii) ABORTIONS FOR WHICH PUBLIC FUNDING IS ALLOWED.—The services described in this clause are abortions for which the expenditure of Federal funds appropriated for the Department of Health and Human Services is permitted, based on the law as in effect as of the date that is 6 months before the beginning of the plan year involved.” [That’s a direct quote from the law they passed.]
In other words, Democrats lied when they claimed Senator Nelson’s “compromise” with pro-abortion Senator Boxer (D-CA) somehow prevented public tax-payer funding of abortion, and only permitted private funding of abortion (as if that should be allowed either). And Planned Parenthood clearly lied in their analysis of the law, when they claimed “forcing individuals to write two separate checks (both of which are out of private funds) and requiring health plans to administer two different payments of private funds is not necessary to insure public funds are not used for abortion care.” No public funds? Really?
They lied, plain and simple, because the law quoted above now reads ABORTIONS FOR WHICH PUBLIC FUNDING IS ALLOWED through the Department of Health and Human Services, subsidizing child-killing of innocents with your tax-dollars, so welfare-moms can kill their child for a $12 co-pay, while Planned Parenthood gets rich charging YOU thousands of tax dollars against your will. No wonder both Stupak and Nelson were labeled traitors by every credible pro-life group in America. No wonder 32% of all voters self-identified as conservative Christian voted 78% for Republicans this past November, and threw out Stupak and Pelosi (and will soon throw out Nelson in 2012).
But the horrible Obamacare law remains law, until we help repeal it. So let’s get it done.
Friends, our nation stands in the midst of a spiritual war to save or destroy unborn babies and the elderly. You and I stand in this battle together. We must stand strong!
God Bless you, in Jesus’ name,
Chaplain Gordon James Klingenschmitt.
