Join us in praying for the Supreme Court to hear the Priests for Life case against the HHS mandate! - 11/5/2015


The U.S. Supreme Court has accepted the case of Priests for Life against the HHS mandate that tries to force us to cover abortion in our health insurance plans. Along with six other cases that have been consolidated with ours, the Court will consider whether the 'accommodation' that the Obama administration offers to groups like Priests for Life is a substantial burden to our religious freedom, and whether the government can achieve its objectives through less restrictive means.

Over the next six months or so, we ask all believers to join with us and the other plaintiffs in praying for victory in the Court. At our prayer website,, you will find a link to special prayers that we have written ( for this intention.

On August 3, the Senate voted 53-46 in favor of considering legislation to defund Planned Parenthood.  Under Senate rules, however, 60 votes were needed, so the Senate was unable to vote on the bill itself.  Our next step is to urge House Speaker John Boehner and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to support the addition of an amendment to the Continuing Budget Resolution in September.  The resolution must be passed by Congress by September 30 or the government will partially shut down, so action must be taken when Congress returns from its summer recess after Labor Day.
