The pro-abortion mandate that is a part of Obamacare marks its one-year anniversary today forcing religious groups to pay for birth control and drugs that may cause abortions. Enforcement of the mandate is expected to begin in January.
The mandate went into effect last year on August 1 and the very minimal religious protections were set to go into effect today, but they will be implemented and enforcement will take place starting on January 1. http://www.lifenews.com/2013/
The North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services announced Wednesday that it has suspended the license of Femcare, an abortion clinic in Asheville, for two dozen serious health and safety violations discovered during a routine inspection on July 18 and 19th.
This action comes just two days after Gov. Pat McCrory signed a law that will require abortion clinics to meet the standards of an outpatient surgery center. Ironically, it was thought that Femcare would be the only North Carolina abortion clinic to meet safety standards under the new law, but it seems it that thinking was grossly in error. Femcare was last inspected 6½ years ago. The closure is not directly related to the new law. http://www.lifenews.com/2013/
During the debate about the 20-week late-term abortion ban in Texas, members of the pro-abortion mob made death threats on a number of officials.
Now, Texas law enforcement officials are looking into tweets that called for the killing of pro-life elected officials, such as Governor Rick Perry.http://www.lifenews.com/
Today, the Thomas More Society has submitted an updated second memorandum to Congressman Aaron Schock (IL-18) of the House Committee on Ways and Means, detailing additional evidence of continued IRS targeting of pro-life organizations.
Despite claims by the Obama Administration that the harassment has ceased, the Society produced over 250 pages of documentation showing that the federal government is still interrogating pro-life groups beyond the scope of its legal authority, infringing upon these organizations First Amendment rights of assembly, free speech, and religious liberty. http://www.lifenews.com/2013/
Senators Ted Cruz, Mike Lee, and Marco Rubio are making waves as they lead the charge to de-fund the Affordable Care Act (ACA) in Congress. The Senators propose that Congress pass a continuing resolution to fund the entire government except for the ACA.
Pro-life Americans including those at Americans United for Life commend their efforts because de-funding the ACA is an excellent step toward undermining this law, which is the greatest expansion of abortion since Roe v. Wade. http://www.lifenews.com/2013/
The past few years havent been great for abortion.
The Planned Parenthood abortion corporation is closing clinics in Bryan and Lufkin, Texas today after Texas Governor Rick Perry signed into law a bill that bans abortions after 20 weeks and holds abortion facilities accountable for higher health and safety standards.
Womens Rights Without Frontiers today lodged the following Complaint Concerning Coercive Population Control with the United Nations Commission on the Status of Women. http://www.lifenews.com/2013/
