House Prolife Caucus Co-Chmn. Smith: “No Change!”
Congressman Chris Smith (NJ-04) released the following statement in response to President Obama’s announcement today that violates the religious freedoms of people of faith and people of conscience.
“The so-called new policy is the discredited old policy, dressed up to look like something else,” said Smith. “It remains a serious violation of religious freedom. Only the most naïve or gullible would accept this as a change in policy.
“The newest iteration of Obama’s coercion rule utterly fails because it still forces religious employers and employees who have moral objections to paying for abortion inducing drugs, sterilization and contraception to pay for these things, because it is still the employers who buy the coverage for their employees.
“Today’s announcement is a political manipulation designed to get Obama past his own self-made controversy and past the next election... (READ MORE)

Speaker Boehner on Offensive Against Obama in Religious Freedom Battle
Barack Obama has instigated yet another firestorm over one of his abominable policy decisions. Obama’s latest outrageous action is the rule which the Obama Administration put forth mandating that faith-based employers -- including Catholic charities, schools, universities, and hospitals -- provide services such as abortion-inducing drugs which they believe are immoral. Such a religious freedom infringement imposed by Obama upon the American people is a result of the passage of the socialized medicine scheme called ObamaCare in early 2010.
As a result, the calls cascading into the United States Capitol switchboard are unequaled since Obama rammed that very same unconstitutional pro-abortion ObamaCare law through the United States Congress by unconstitutional means.
Speaker John Boehner, R-OH, spoke on the floor of the United States House of Representatives on Wednesday about what the Republicans intend to do to fight Obama’s latest abuse of power with the help of concerned Democrats and Independents such as Senator Joe Lieberman, I-CT... (READ MORE)
The First Amendment Rights of the American People Must Be Protected
U.S. Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell made the following statement on the Senate floor Tuesday regarding the Administration’s decision to force a mandate on healthcare providers contrary to their religious freedom:
“Throughout my Senate career, I’ve spent a lot of time to defending the First Amendment.
“Most of it I’ve spent defending one particular clause of that amendment, the one relating to the right of free speech. But recent events have shown, quite unexpectedly, the urgent need to defend another clause in the First Amendment. I’m referring, of course, to the right of the free exercise of religion...

RSC Chairman Jordan Disparages ObamaCare’s Attack on Religion
If the CLASS Act is a microcosm of the gimmicks and dishonesty involved in creating ObamaCare, one recently imposed regulation is the clearest expression yet of how government-run health care will trample on Americans’ constitutional rights.
Most people commonly associate the First Amendment with freedom of speech, but its first words are actually to guarantee us freedom of religion. Yet, under an ideological new rule handed down by HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, many organizations affiliated with the Catholic Church will be required to provide free contraceptives, sterilization, and abortion-inducing drugs in their employees’ health insurance plans”...
