Citizens “Amicus Brief” in support of Priests for Life vs. Sebelius
I am a citizen of the United States. I will be adversely impacted by the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (Obamacare). Specifically, I strenuously object to the recent HHS mandate that all employers must provide contraceptives and abortifacients free of charge through their health insurance policy.
This mandate forces me to violate my conscience. As such, it is a direct violation of my First Amendment rights. It not only violates my freedom of religion, but it also violates my freedom of speech by requiring “forced speech.” It does this by imposing upon all employers the requirement to take an active part in informing employees how to obtain and use contraceptives and abortifacients free of charge. Because I personally believe that contraceptives and abortifacients are intrinsically immoral, being required to cooperate with the promotion and promulgation thereof strikes at the heart of my primacy of conscience.
Therefore I am signing on to this Citizen’s “Amicus Brief” in support of the Priests for Life vs. Sebelius lawsuit that is now before you. I urge you to consider the rights of the individual and rule in favor of repealing the HHS mandate…
