Obamacare is on the fast track back to SCOTUS!

The Supreme Court has ordered the Justice Department to respond to a religious freedom suit against Obamacare.

No court has ever ruled on the constitutionality of Obamacare’s abortion funding. Obamacare funds abortions in two ways:

1. It requires all individuals to pay a fee that goes directly into a dedicated abortion fund. This money is not used for various medical treatments, which might include abortion. It funds nothing but abortion.

2. It requires all private insurance policies cover free birth control, abortifacients (chemical abortion drugs.e., the morning after pill), and sterilization.

Both of these are in direct violation with every American’s right to the free exercise of religion.

    That first graphic is powerful. Whenever I run into a pro-abortionist, I tell them they’re lucky their parents didn’t share their views on the subject. I just don’t understand how someone could be so fervently against the death penalty for murderers and rapists, but totally cool with killing people who haven’t even had a chance to break the law yet.

      Me neither. And it’s not an uncommon position among liberal Catholics. Of course, they give lip service to being against abortion, but the fact is they don’t lift a finger to do anything about it. Every election season, they provide Catholic voters with dippy reasons why it’s okay to vote for pro-abortion pols, like Obama, supposedly because they’re so “good” on all the other “social issues” … even though they’re NOT.

      But Catholic Democrats are seriously prejudiced against anything that smacks of Republican. I know. I was one. The idea of registering Republican literally made me feel sick to my stomach, but I had to do it to vote for the most Pro-Life candidates in primaries.

      Once I realized my prejudice was there, I could address it. But honestly, I was SHOCKED to have that visceral reaction. I had no idea I felt that way. I believe many Catholics are going through this now.

        I know what you mean about leftist Catholics. My grandma is one of them. It’s hard for her to understand that the Democrat party isn’t what it was in JFK’s time.

    • Violet, I agree. Know what’s even weirder? People who have adopted children and are STILL pro-abortion. I’m very closely related to one. She was virulently pro-abortion before she adopted two little girls, when she and her husband were in their late thirties (after being unable to conceive naturally). I thought adopting would soften her attitude at least a little, since both her daughters were perfect candidates for being sliced and diced and flushed down a drain. But it didn’t change her mind at all. Sigh… If that doesn’t change a person’s mind, then that mind is not only closed, but nailed shut.

        I’d suspect she’s had at least one abortion. That’s a tough road to come from. I have helped a few women through the repentance and grieving. I hope you will pray for her.

          • Yes. Two things that foul up a woman’s hormonal system are: miscarriage (procured and natural) plus being on the pill. I will add a third here which is the hormone replacement therapy.

            I am going out on a limb here because I have seen anecdotal evidence, but I do think that when the hormones are disrupted by a miscarriage there is a greater chance of getting breast cancer. The pill suppresses the hormones that produce the eggs that are released every month, meaning that there is also something else going on in the body because the woman’s system is behaving in an unnatural way. Then there is HRT… and yes I do believe that there is a link between late onset breast cancer and HRT.

            Breast cancer is very much hormone related. It is especially related to estrogen. If you have too much in your body then this increases the risk of breast cancer.

            Also, I wonder if there is not a higher propensity towards mental illness as a result of a woman having an abortion.

              The mental illness connection is proven. Ditto breast cancer, premature births, drug use and suicide attempts. Abortion is not a solution to anything. It’s just the beginning of a whole bunch of new and much, much worse problems.

              • Chrissy, I totally agree. Miscarriage, and the ability to have another baby are two of the possible side effects of having an abortion in the first place.

    Powerful. Most of the Catholics I know use this as their reasoning, “I do not believe in it myself, but do not believe the govt has the right to tell anyone what to do with their bodies.” It kind of makes me laugh because they control everything we eat, drink and shoot into our bodies (immunizations) but have an issue with them protecting an innocent life. I still think most Catholics would be sickened to learn about President Obama’s stand on infanticide. Regarding the subject, some good news, which I always like to share as it seems to be in short supply these days.

    • Anyone who thinks Democrats and liberals don’t believe in telling people what to do with their own bodies has been in a coma for the last decade. Just look at Michelle Obama and Nanny Bloomberg, for starters.

      On a recent NewsBusted, Jodi Miller said that public schools in NYC are going to be giving out “morning-after” (i.e., abortifacient) pills to young girls, and that Mayor Bloomberg approved, as long as the pills were washed down with a soft drink that was less than 16 ounces. That about sums it up. Abortion=good, supersized soft drinks=bad. George Orwell, where are you when we need you?

          Interesting historical footnote: Chief Justice Roger Taney, the first Roman Catholic to sit on the Supreme Court of the United States, who wrote the majority opinion in the Dred Scott case, was personally opposed to slavery and actually freed all of his own slaves. Ask all the other slaves if Taney’s being “personally opposed” did them any good.

          • Many, many years ago, I wrote and published a quarterly newsletter for our local pro-life group. It contained a satirical advice column that I wrote under the pen name of “Gloria Grassroots.” On the subject of wishy-washy politicians who refuse to take a firm stand against killing innocent human beings, Gloria wrote: “Politicians like to say, ‘I’m personally opposed to abortion, BUT we need to have exceptions for rape and incest and the life of the mother and fetal deformity’; or ‘I’m personally opposed to abortion, BUT government shouldn’t intrude into the relationship between a woman and her doctor’; or ‘I’m personally opposed to abortion, BUT if we want to reduce the numbers of abortions, we need more government funding of birth control.’ Make no mistake: These politicians are sliding down the slippery slope on their BUTs.”

        • Ya’ll are so right about this. Biggest scam ever. The fact that we know people who sit in the pews at church with us and hear firm pleas from the pulpit for the innocent unborn every week and STILL hold this “personally opposed” view, is the greatest cause of discouragement for my wife and I. Don’t they realize that they are contributing to these deaths? The blood is on our hands.

          But I think Chrissy hit it on the nose about the stumbling block for lots of folks. Many of them have had abortions or coerced women into abortions, and they can’t face it. One of my best friends convinced an old girlfriend to abort his (and her) first child, and now has a wonderful family and is a great warrior for life, but his guilt is so deep that he can’t bring himself to tell his wife about it.

              Most of them probably are lapsed and largely absent Catholics. But there are too many prominent ones, like Biden, Pelosi and Sibelius, teachers like some bishops, priests, pastors, nuns (we had one here for a few years) and the regular mass-goers who want that reassurance that they can be liberal Democrats and Catholic.

              I heard about a diocese where the BISHOP mandated sex education in the Catholic schools BY PLANNED PARENTHOOD. In public schools, the parents could remove their kids; but in those Catholic schools, they could not!

              Jesus had harsh words for people like this. Dante put them in the lowest level of Hell.

The wife and sons and I were just shaking our heads on Sunday as we pulled into the church lane for mass behind 2 old women with “Proud Obamacare Supporter” bumperstickers, and more leftist tripe. As I was sitting at the sound board recording the homily, which was for Pro-Life Sunday, of course, my wife and I traded more than a few smirks about the 2 women who must have been fuming at the Pastor’s words about our obligation to stand up AGAINST threats to unborn life and our religious freedom. There was no joy in it, though. Their hardness just made us depresssed.

                  I have some experience with why at least some of them are so resistant, even when they are otherwise really faithful to Christ’s teachings. It’s just too hard to buck the liberal agenda that permeates their environment.

                  My gf is a tenured professor at a school near here. She told me about having lunch with female colleagues who got ranting about stupid pro-lifers. She said she was so intimidated being alone at the table with her convictions, with people she has to work with, that she kept her trap shut. She was ashamed, but she said nothing.

                  I really think, for many, it is just too challenging to deal with walking the walking for real. Besides the generation’s deep prejudice against Republicanism, there is this massive cultural bias that many just cannot find the courage to really address. The consequences would require so much change in their hearts, minds, friends, family, etc.

                  That liberal leftist nun we had for a pastor for a few years was not openly hostile to conservatives, but she did a lot of passive-aggressive stuff, like skip a meeting we had about our opposition to a local anti-war group (not a parish group) having been given permission to use our facility for a media-publicized event.

                  The priest we shared with 2 other churches came to that meeting; anti-war parishioners came to that meeting. Both of them were moved to CHANGE THEIR MINDS after they heard us speak and the group was uninvited.

                  But our PASTOR went to another parish (where she had a fellow libbie nun pastoring) and they had an anti-war prayer meeting. I think God is going to have a whole lot to say to her when she gets to judgment. And it isn’t going to be fun. I bet he even makes her sit in on the meeting and finally HEAR what we all had to say! LOL

Anyway McMullen was a real sleaze including voting for abortion on demand etc…. but the Catholics never stopped to think about the policies and voted for him anyway. They are extremely leftist in Canberra, and it is hard to find any who are conservative – but they do exist.

            When Dearest got the local GOP committee a storefront HQ back in 2008, conservatives began coming out of the woodwork. The dominance of liberal Democrats in the area made them feel alone and isolated. But once we had a presence, the number and passion of our fellow conservatives astonished us. The Democrats don’t have an HQ anywhere in the county, even this close to THE most major election ever.
