How Obama’s War on Catholics is Also
a War on the Unborn!
December 15, 2011
Dear Leslie & Cheryl,
This is a
fast-breaking story that requires your immediate attention and
action. New developments are coming out every day.
Furthermore, it’s a time-sensitive issue that could help
STOP an insidious threat that would otherwise open the floodgates of
abortion in the United States like never before.
Here’s what it’s all about…
probably know, the so-called “healthcare reform” legislation
known as “ObamaCare” – which was
narrowly passed by Congress (and only after intense pressure tactics
from the White House) – is now facing its toughest challenge ever.
It’s being challenged in court over the constitutionality of
its key provision of requiring every U.S. citizen to purchase
health insurance or else face a penalty.
What’s more, from
a pro-life standpoint, Obamacare is an atrocity because it requires health insurance plans to PAY FOR ABORTION! That means
YOU would be paying for abortion coverage whether you want to or
not every time you pay your insurance premium.
is unconscionable. But as you know, the abortion industry
desperately WANTS and NEEDS Obamacare because it would flood their
coffers with untold millions of dollars -- paid by you and me, of
course – at a time when the entire abortion industry is in
danger of closing down because of the work of so many good
pro-lifers like you.
It’s true. The number of abortion
mills in America keeps shrinking – almost on a daily basis.
They’re feeling the onslaught of heavy fines, lawsuits, new
regulations, criminal investigations, as well as convictions and prison
sentences for the baby butchers.
Bottom line? The abortion
industry is hurting – BIG TIME.
And that’s why they
NEED Obamacare. It will keep them afloat. It will be a source of
unrestricted funding for abortion – the likes of which
we’ve never seen. It will make the federal government’s
subsidies to Planned Parenthood (a million dollars a day) look like chicken feed.
And even though the Obama Administration is
quick to deny that Obamacare will force taxpayers to buy insurance
policies that cover abortifacient drugs (mistakenly called
“contraception”), we now know that this is patently untrue.
Consider this recent disturbing development
that’s come straight out of the Obama Administration: In a
little-known amendment, the Department of Health and Human Services (under
the “Catholic” pro-abortion leader, Kathleen Sebelius) is now
going to require Catholic hospitals, schools, and charities to buy health
insurance for their employees that cover abortifacients and
sterilization – even though these are repugnant to the Catholic
conscience, and a clear violation of religious rights.
Administration doesn’t care. Their goal is to force abortion –
in every form – down our throats, no matter what. And Obamacare is
the tool they plan to use to achieve their diabolical goals.
So this brings us to the current state of affairs –
and the reason I’m writing to you today…
Right now, with the constitutionality of Obamacare soon to be ruled upon
by the U.S. Supreme Court, we have a chance to STOP this abortion
free-for-all legislation in its tracks.
How? It’s very
simple: You see, right now the Supreme Court is fairly evenly-divided on
Obamacare. Just one “swing vote” would make the
difference between Obamacare getting the Court’s seal of approval, or
being shot down entirely.
Now, it’s unfortunately true
that the average U.S. citizen has little or no direct influence (other than
prayer and fasting) over how the Court rules on any given case. We could
write letters to the Justices until our hands fell off, and it
wouldn’t do any good – because the Court does not
“represent” the people like Congress does, and therefore
isn’t receptive to voter input.
Therefore, in this case,
we have to take stock of what influence we can exert over the Court
and how it will vote on Obamacare.
Frankly, there seems to be
only one way available to us right now – and that is to have
Justice Elena Kagan recuse herself from the
Everybody already knows where she stands and how
she will vote. She’s strongly pro-abortion. After all, she’s an
Obama appointee, AND she argued for Obamacare when she was
the Solicitor General of the United States. Newly revealed documents even
show that she was intimately involved in creating the legislation.
Simply put, she should not participate in any case if she worked on it as
And that’s her Achilles heel.
The way our justice system works, any judge who is pre-biased in any way on any case because of prior work on the case
(particularly as a government official) is legally and ethically required to not to rule on that case. The judge must
“recuse” himself (or herself) and step down, or “sit it
This clearly applies to Justice Kagan when it comes
to Obamacare. She should have already recused herself on this
particular case because of her work on behalf of Obamacare when she
was Solicitor General. But… she admitted in her Senate confirmation
hearings that she wouldn’t.
After all, as we know
too well, the “normal rules” don’t apply when it comes to abortion.
We call it “The Abortion
Distortion” for a reason!
Pro-aborts simply do
not play by the rules when something threatens abortion, even in
the slightest way. Their hypocrisy and virulence abounds all the more, in
Such is the case here.
Mind you, Justice Kagan
has already recused herself on no less than THIRTY different cases
that have come before the Supreme Court since she took her seat on the
bench. And in each one, it was because she had previously argued for or against one side of the case while she was Solicitor General.
That means she did the right thing on those 30 previous cases.
However, because the Obamacare case involves abortion – and, most importantly, the “blank check” that will save the abortion industry from total financial collapse in the next
few years – Justice Kagan is being told by the Obama Administration NOT to recuse herself.
They need her vote on the Supreme
Court. Because without her, the Court will almost surely vote against the
constitutionality of Obamacare.
This would be bad news for the
abortion industry and bad news for President Obama – because
his Obamacare is basically the only accomplishment he has achieved
since he entered the White House. And now it’s in BIG danger –
right during the coming election season.
This is why the
pro-life movement is now calling for Justice Kagan to do the right thing
and recuse herself from the Obamacare case – just as she’s done
on the previous 30 cases where she had a “pre-existing
condition” biasing her.
surprise… the Obama Administration – in the form of the U.S.
Attorney General’s office – is digging its heels in and
refusing to demand that Justice Kagan recuse herself.
General Eric Holder, who is the one responsible for making sure
there’s no conflict-of-interest on the Supreme Court, is completely
“stonewalling” Congress on this matter.
to even take up the issue – stalling for as long as he can until
it’s “too late” for Justice Kagan to recuse herself. Delay-and-stall tactics are the hallmark of someone who
doesn’t have a leg to stand on.
Suffice it to say that
something has to be done NOW to get Justice Kagan to recuse herself
from the Obamacare case when it’s heard by the Supreme Court.
Fortunately, there IS something YOU can do!
Right now, an effort is being led by House Judiciary
Committee Chairman Lamar Smith – a pro-life Texas
Republican – to investigate Justice Kagan’s
conflict-of-interest on the ObamaCare legislation.
Congressman Smith wrote to Attorney General Eric Holder to inform him of
the investigation. In his letter, Smith states…
“I write to request relevant documents and witness interviews in
order to properly understand U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Elena
Kagan’s involvement in health care legislation or litigation while
serving as United States Solicitor General.
recent weeks, questions have been raised about whether Justice
Kagan’s prior work on what became the Patient Protection and
Affordable Care Act (PPACA) while serving as Solicitor General should
disqualify her from hearing challenges to its constitutionality… All
parties agree the critical question is the extent of her involvement, as
Solicitor General, in formulating the Administration’s legal position
on PPACA, which was signed into law by President Obama on March 23,
Congressman Smith is being backed by at least
50 other representatives in the House – as well as by pro-life
leaders around the country.
In fact, I recently signed a
petition spearheaded by the Judicial Action Group – co-signed by more
than 85 pro-life and citizens’ group leaders – to ensure that a
proper investigation is conducted into Kagan’s qualifications (or
lack thereof) to judge the Obamacare case.

Likewise, I urge you to take action
now and send your own e-mail to Congressman Lamar Smith so that he
knows he has the full support of concerned pro-lifers like you.
You can do this quickly and easily by clicking
here for the automatic e-mail we’ve already prepared for you. It
takes just a few seconds, but it will be worth more than you can imagine if
we’re able to get Justice Kagan to recuse herself from the Obamacare
hearings when they come before the Supreme Court.

I thank you, in advance, for your willingness to help with this vital
and time-sensitive effort.
Wishing you a Blessed Advent,
