This is a call for action: last Friday, the Obama Administration continued its unprecedented attack on Americans’ freedom of conscience by refusing to reverse its mandate that nearly all insurance plans must provide full coverage of all Food and Drug Administration (FDA)-approved “contraception,” including the abortion-inducing drug ella. We must urge the Senate to protect Americans’ freedom of conscience by supporting the Blunt Amendment to protect the right to provide, purchase, or enroll in healthcare coverage that is consistent with one’s religious beliefs and moral convictions.
Follow this link to contact your Senators and urge them to vote for the Blunt Amendment. Tell them that passage of this Amendment is essential to preserve the freedom of conscience that forms the bedrock of American liberty.
The 111th Congress’ passage of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) in March 2010 marks the first time that the federal government determined to impose specific coverage and care requirements on those who provide, purchase, or enroll in healthcare insurance.
The recent regulation issued by the Department of Health and Human Service (HHS) mandating that nearly all insurance plans provide full coverage of all FDA-approved “contraception”—which includes life-ending drugs and devices, such as the abortion-inducing drug ella—further underscores the Administration’s unwavering resolve to undermine our freedom of conscience. The HHS mandate compels Americans to choose a plan that covers services—as well as life-ending drugs and devices—that are contrary to our consciences, and forces healthcare insurance providers to furnish such plans regardless of the providers’ religious beliefs or moral convictions.
Thomas Jefferson wrote: “No provision in our Constitution ought to be dearer to man than that which protects the rights of conscience against the enterprises of civil authority.” Thank you for standing with us for life and freedom at this critical time in history.
