U.S. Citizens Sign On To “Amicus Brief” In Support of Lawsuit Against ObamaCare

Staten Island, NY -- Priests for Life, a New York-based international pro-life organization of Catholic clergy and laity, today announced that any and all U.S. citizens who are opposed to the unjust HHS mandate can sign on to a Citizens “Amicus Brief” in support of the organization’s lawsuit against the Obama Administration.

 

The lawsuit, Priests for Life v. Sebelius, seeks to permanently block the implementation of the HHS mandate that imposes clear violations of conscience upon any and all citizens who morally object to abortion and contraception. 

 

“Since the HHS mandate directly affects every U.S. citizen through compulsory funding of contraception and abortion-inducing drugs and devices, this effort gives everyone a chance to let their voice be heard if they oppose the mandate,” says Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life.

 

Father Pavone elaborates: “Through various forms of compulsion, the HHS mandate forces all citizens to either pay for abortion-causing pills… promote them… or be penalized if citizens choose not to comply with these audacious dictatorial decrees. Americans will have no say in the matter if the HHS ruling isn’t repealed, rescinded, or rejected."

 

One part of the lawsuit addresses the “forced speech” aspect of the controversial Health and Human Services mandate. According to the HHS regulations, virtually all U.S. employers will not only be forced to pay for 100% of an employee’s prescription for abortion-causing drugs, but also be forced to instruct the employee on how to obtain these morally-objectionable prescriptions and get them for free.

 

“This falls under the forbidden rubric of ‘forced speech’ - a corollary violation of every citizen’s right to free speech under the Constitution,” says lead attorney Charles LiMandri. Priests for Life is seeking injunctive relief from this unconstitutional decree, and inviting all concerned U.S. citizens to join them by signing on to the Citizens “Amicus Brief.” 

 

Priests for Life has made it possible for everyone to sign on to the Citizen’s “Amicus Brief” with just the click of a mouse button by going to www.repealtheabortionmandate.com.

 

Priests for Life is the nation's largest Catholic pro-life organization dedicated to ending abortion and euthanasia. For more information, visit www.priestsforlife.org.
