Indiana Right to Life launches online petition against President Obama’s HHS abortion drug mandate
February 10, 2012
President Barack Obama today announced a false “compromise” over a controversial HHS mandate that will still require all insurers, include those who provide coverage for faith-based employers, to provide free coverage for abortion-causing drugs.
You are encouraged to sign our online petition to the White House today to express your opposition to this mandate tramples religious freedom and paves the way for additional abortion mandates.
Senator Dan Coats summed up the HHS mandate today by stating,
“”Today’s announcement changes nothing. Whether religious employers are forced to pay directly for contraceptives and abortion-inducing drugs or to act as facilitators, their religious liberty remains compromised. But what the president fails to understand is that when it comes to freedom of religion – a core American principle – there is no room for compromise. It is unconstitutional and just plain wrong for the federal government to require faith-based institutions to betray the fundamental tenets of their beliefs. President Obama remains intent on ignoring the First Amendment and the millions of Americans opposed to this radical rule. It is now time for the bipartisan group in Congress who strongly disagree with the administration’s mandate to join together and rescind this unprecedented attack on religious and faith-based organizations.”
Sign our peition today and encourage your family and friends to do the same.
