Posted on 01/02/2013 6:39:47 AM PST by NYer
As we look back on the past year, we conclude that 2012 is a year that will go down in infamy.
For the first time in history, the government has attempted to force Americans to pay for the ending of human life even if abortion violates their religious beliefs.
The issue came to a head this summer when the ObamaCare abortion pill mandate was scheduled to go into effect. The mandate forces employers to provide health insurance coverage that includes abortion-inducing drugs, contraception, and sterilization. And many employers are compelled to provide these in spite of their sincerely held religious beliefs to the contrary.
A family business in Denver decided to take a stand and say no to the Obama Administration abortion pill mandate. The Newland family realized that they and their business faced a terrible choice: either comply with the mandate and violate their religious beliefs, or refuse and face crippling fines and penalties.
Alliance Defending Freedom came to the defense of the Newland family. Thankfully, we were able to win an important victory in court. The judge granted an injunction preventing the government from enforcing the abortion pill mandate against the Newlands. However, while this decision is a tremendous victory, it is not the end.
Rather, it is the first battle in an ongoing wara war to determine whether the government gets to decide not only who is religious, but which religious beliefs are worthy of protection.
Here are five reasons why the ObamaCare abortion pill mandate should concern you.
With the implementation of ObamaCare, the government has become the dictator of conscience. Because of the abortion pill mandate, people must either comply and violate their religious beliefs, or resist and pay the penalty for their faith.
LIFE, liberty and the pursuit of happiness is the criteria. The idea that the mother OWNS the fetus is absurd.
I firmly believe that any nation that supports abortion WILL fall...precisely because of it.
