On Capitol Hill, a coalition of organizations including the Family Research Council (FRC) held a news conference calling on Speaker of the House John Boehner (R-OH) and Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA) to add conscience protections to must-pass legislation and to defund Obamacare. In addition, a large coalition: sent a letter: to House leadership calling for religious freedom protections.
Dr. Chauncey Crandall,: Jay Sekulow of the ACLJ: and many others have spoken out about the dangers of Obamacare.
At the news conference: Family Research Council President Tony Perkins: said:
“Obamacare is not the typical political virus that spreads from: Washington,: D.C.: infecting the body politic. This is a rare strain of ‘flesh-eating bacteria’ that if not stopped and stopped now threatens the very life of our Republic.We need to defund Obamacare but also need to add conscience protections. Obamacare will subsidize abortion and lead to health care rationing, and defunding would stop that. But defunding alone will not stop legal mandates like the HHS mandate against religious businesses, charities and non-profits and religious universities, so adding conscience protections is essential as well. Religious employers should not be discriminated against because they oppose abortifacients or contraceptives.”
