TESTIMONY OF MISSOURI RIGHT TO LIFE
REGARDING SB 546 FOR THE
PROTECTION OF HEALTH CARE FREEDOM
NOT TO PARTICIPATE IN INSURANCE
THAT FUNDS THE TAKING OF INNOCENT HUMAN LIVES
January 28, 2014
Missouri Right to Life (MRL) is here to testify today in support of SB 546. MRL recognizes that the intent of SB 546 is very narrow and limited in its intent to protect Missouri citizens from the overreaching requirements and anti-life provisions of Obamacare, known as the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.
Missouri Right to Life continues to seek ways to oppose and stand against the Obama Administration’s Health and Human Service’s mandated coverage of abortion-inducing drugs in employer provided insurance plans. We believe it is important to send a message to Washington by passing this legislation.
The Obama administration’s incremental assault on the right to life becomes more and more apparent each day. The fact that people of faith have been the primary defenders of life, is no coincidence that the administration’s attacks on life and on religion through our health care are being linked together. And thus it is no surprise that the defense of life and the defense of religious freedom call for a common defense against the Obama Administration’s anti-life mandated Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.
Missouri Right to Life will continue to fight these assaults with all of its might and without end until all innocent human life is respected and protected. MRL supports SB 546 as another step in that fight.
