I have had the honor of working with the woman quoted in this article, Dorinda Bordlee, on pro life legislation in the past. She is a woman after my own heart. Her comments about today’s Supreme Court Ruling upholding the insurance mandate portion of the Affordable Health Care Act are, in my opinion, spot on. We have just begun to fight the HHS Mandate which forces churches, religious institutions and individuals to violate their long-held moral teachings.
This article contains links to the ruling itself and the BDF amicus brief which describes how the mandate imposes an “abortion premium.” I’m posting it here in response to the bishops’ request that we use this Fortnight for Freedom to study the mandate.
