Our government pays no heed to the Constitution

Priests for Life lawsuit against HHS mandate will continue


Priests for Life



STATEN ISLAND, NY – Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, issued the following statement today following the U.S. Supreme Court decision upholding the constitutionality of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.

“The Supreme Court today officially declared that our current government pays no heed to the Constitution.  Neither the President, nor Congress, nor the Supreme Court appears willing to protect life or liberty.

“If ever there were a time in history when the American people needed to be informed voters on Election Day, this is it.”

Priests for Life filed a lawsuit in February against the Health and Human Services mandate that all employers provide contraception to their employees free of charge. That lawsuit will continue.

“Priests for Life will remain vigilant on the issue of contraception,” Father Pavone said. “The mandate is a brazen attack on our religious liberty. Today’s ruling on Obamacare was a setback, but it is not the end of the battle.”

Priests for Life is the nation's largest Catholic pro-life organization dedicated to ending abortion and euthanasia. For more information, visit

The Supreme Court decision was very disappointing. Little by little our government is trying to lead us to Socialism, where the State is god and can control all of us. Our country need to read Animal Farm, by George Orwell....In it we read, All pigs are equal, but some are more equal than others. This is a paraphrase for what we can become if we are not vigilant.
We need prayer and conversion to our Judeo-Christian Heritage. Then the abomination of Abortion and the slow, insidious erosion of our liberties will end.

Really? "Neither the President, nor Congress, nor the Supreme Court appears willing to protect life". REALLY? They are unwilling to protect LIFE? Well it's a healthcare bill making it affordable for those without, AND it makes it so you can't be turned down for pre-existing conditions. Yep sounds to me like they don't value life AT ALL. I can understand being against contraception and what not but seriously? This article to me sounds like politics.

"Neither the President, nor Congress, nor the Supreme Court appears willing to protect life or liberty." Human life begins at conception! I Pledge of Allegiance to the flag of the United States of America and to the republic for which it stands, one nation under God with liberty and justice for all> Yes!

Es terrible todo lo que esta pasando...tenemos que mantenernos mas unidos que nunca en oración y pedimos por favor a todos nuestros sacerdotes que hablen mas claro y sin miedo en nuestras Iglesias, nuestos Pastores son personas en las que la gente confía, Nuestras comunidades necesitan ser mejor informadas, hay mucha ignoracia , miedo y desinformacion.
Como familia nosotros los apoyamos 100% y humildemente tratamos de hacer lo mejor que podemos por nuestra parte.
Para servirle , su hermana en Cristo

So much still depends on the lawsuits and the justices' decision on making a lifesaving decision on those. I just hope they see the law within the law of morality and wisdom.

I think we need to be careful not to confuse the health care law with the contraception mandate. The contraception mandate is a regulation or a policy of this administration implemented under this law. So, the legal cases against forcing contraception, etc., on us, that is, violating our religious freedom is still an open question on which the high court could eventually rule as a result of the many law suits. Also, if this president is voted out of office, the next administration could reverse the contraception mandate with the stroke of a pen. This is, at least, my understanding.

Hopefully the courts that see this lawsuit will agree that it violates the establishment clause.

Thank you, Fr. Frank for being our LIFE leader. I was at prayer group this morning as we heard the news. Our hearts are sick with sorrow and now anger at this unjust ruling. I thank Angela K. for saying what is in all our hearts. My friend said Satan wins every time we give into despair and so we must trust that God will do the ipossible. I am with Angela as we take up our cross. Let us unite under our God to fight for our children and grandchildren, born and unborn. Let us stand up for our nation.
