But on Dec. 3, the Obama administration seemingly flouted the will of Congress by issuing a new Medicare regulation detailing "voluntary advance care planning" that is to be included during patients' annual checkups.
The ACLU's unholy war on Catholic hospitals Jewish World Review Ho, ho, ho! Just in time for Christmas, the American Civil Liberties Union has launched a new salvo against people of faith.
