A vital pro-life amendment is likely to be voted on in the U.S. Senate this week. The amendment has been offered by Sen. Roy Blunt. The amendment would amend the Obama health care law to prevent the imposition of regulatory mandates that violate the religious or moral convictions of those who purchase or provide health insurance, such as the recent mandate that virtually all employers – including religious hospitals and schools – must purchase health insurance plans that cover all government-approved methods of birth control, including abortion causing drugs.
This is not just a debate about the birth-control mandate. The same statutory authority could be used by the Administration – as early as next year – to mandate that virtually all health plans pay for elective abortion on demand.
Please call Senator Roy Blunt, 202-224-5721, and tell him you are with Missouri Right to Life and thank him for his actions to rectify this heinous misuse of power by the Obama Administration. Please call Senator Claire McCaskill, 202-224-6154 and ask her to support this amendment to prevent the same heinous misuse of power
