Moveon.org and other leftist organizations have declared that those of us who oppose President Obama’s unconstitutional contraceptive and abortifacient mandate are waging a so-called “War on Women.” Nothing could be further from the truth!
This “abortion mandate” battle may well be the pivotal engagement in the left’s attack on the Constitution, and it is rapidly escalating! Together, we must stand together and declare the TRUTH about Barack Obama’s socialist, pro-abortion agenda. Please see my very important update below – Mat.
Nearly two years ago, the Obama administration decreed that contraceptives and abortifacients (abortion inducing drugs) must be provided “free” in its healthcare “reform” legislation called ObamaCare.
The ObamaCare mandate requires religious employers to pay directly (if self-insured) or indirectly (through their insurance company) for contraceptives, sterilization, and abortion inducing drugs. This mandate collides with religious freedom and the rights of conscience!The Obama administration has placed its radical abortion agenda above the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution. This administration does not care about the Constitution or your rights to conscience and free exercise of religion.
Leftists who want the ObamaCare entitlement to be fully implemented and believe that it’s somehow a woman’s “right” to have access to these drugs through taxpayer and religious employer subsidies have now declared those who disagree with their view to be waging a…“War on Women!”
For instance, Senator Frank Lautenberg recently wailed that Republicans “…want to take us back to the Dark Ages…when women were property.”
And the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee has launched a petition to fight back against those who allegedly want “…to deny tens of thousands of American women life-saving health care services.”This is the vitriolic spin that leftists are now employing to sway public opinion toward an Obama edict that blatantly tramples on the rights of all Americans.
++You are needed to stand with us on this battleground!
As I have said before, I truly believe that the ObamaCare “mandates” battleground we are fighting on may be the toughest political fight we face in our lifetime.
Right now, Congressman Jeff Fortenberry’s “Respect for Rights of Conscience Act,” is making its way through the House of Representatives. It now has 220 co-sponsors.
Representative Fortenberry wrote that his Act, “…would repeal the controversial [ObamaCare] mandate, amending the 2010 health care law to preserve conscience rights for religious institutions, health care providers, and small businesses who pay for health care coverage.”Here’s my pledge to you: Liberty Counsel Action will diligently work to get Representative Fortenberry’s bill to a floor vote – and passed!
That’s why we are planning a SECOND delivery of our petition, “Stop Barack Obama's subversion of our religious civil liberties and conscience rights!” to members of the House of Representatives at a strategic moment.
In light of the trumped-up leftist hype about what they call a “War on Women” – I feel that we must have 100,000 signatures on this petition before we deliver it to key Congressmen. As we have learned in earlier campaigns, 100,000 signatures makes a powerful impact on Capitol Hill!
I know that you are with us. Your signature is needed on this important petition.
We can deliver 100,000 signatures to the House of Representatives – but I must have your help to gather the names signatures needed to get this message to Capitol Hill and help insure that this vital legislation is passed to stop Barack Obama’s tyrannical assault on our religious liberties.
Can I ask you to help in any of three ways?
First, please consider sharing this information on your social media site. The links are provided at the end of this message or on the petition page, which can be accessed by clicking here.http://www.lcaction.cc/r.asp?U=79010&CID=660&RID=34390338
Second, consider forwarding this message to 10-20 of your friends and family.
And then, consider calling your NV representative and encourage your legislator to vote “yes” on Congressman Fortenberry’s “Respect for Rights of Conscience Act,” when it comes up for a vote on the House floor.++This is the beginning of Round Two in the fight for our precious freedom of conscience!
As you may know, last week, Liberty Counsel Action team members stormed Capitol Hill with a petition bearing the names of almost 70,000 citizens and flooded Senate offices with tens of thousands of faxes.
Sadly, Americans’ religious liberties were once again trampled upon by President Obama and his sycophants in Harry Reid’s Senate in the narrow defeat of Senator Blunt’s bill, which would have restored the religious and conscience rights of Americans to the levels our forefathers intended.
But that was just Round One! Liberty Counsel Action will NOT give up until this battle is won!
We have taken names and these Senators will be held accountable for their vote! Liberty Counsel Action’s next Congressional Scorecard will add the outcome of this vote to our findings…and those legislators who stood for the “mandates” and are up for reelection will feel the peoples’ displeasure at the polls!
++Defeating ObamaCare means defeating the mandates.
Liberty Counsel Action’s sister organization, Liberty Counsel, is confronting this latest ObamaCare mandate by seeking an outright declaration that the President’s healthcare “reform” law is unconstitutional at the U.S. Supreme Court.
I argued against ObamaCare in the federal District and Appellate courts. Liberty Counsel has filed two vital briefs at the Supreme Court and the hearings will begin in just a few weeks.
But Liberty Counsel Action can stop the mandates in the legislature and we MUST do everything possible to end this tyrannical government take-over of the American medical services industry! Now, our God-given freedom of conscience is literally at stake!
Everyone in Washington knows the fight is on – and we will not bow to Obama’s tyranny!
Please, help us gather the 100,000 names on this vital petition before our second delivery to the House of Representatives:
God bless you for standing on the side of true liberty!

P.S. The Obama spin machine has trumped up a so-called “War on Women” allegedly being waged by those of us opposed to Obama’s “contraception and abortifacient mandate.” You and I both know that nothing could be further from the truth!
In fact, Obama’s “contraception and abortifacient” mandate is a war on ALL Americans. For the time being, the scene of the battle has shifted to the House of Representatives. Please sign our petition, which will be hand delivered to key members of the House in a matter of days:
Then, please help us reach more people by posting the petition link on your social network site or forwarding this message to as many of your friends as possible. Again, thank you and God bless you!
