A federal appeals court issued an injunction on Wednesday that temporarily blocks President Barack Obama’s Department of Health and Human Services from implementing Obamacare’s contraception mandate.
The mandate requires employers to provide their employees with health care plans that include coverage for contraceptives, sterilization and abortion-inducing drugs.
Missouri business owner Frank O’Brien, who employs 87 people at O’Brien Industrial Holdings, alleged in the lawsuit that led to the injunction that the mandate unconstitutionally infringes on his religious beliefs.
On its website, the company says its mission is “to make our labor a pleasing offering to the Lord while enriching our families and society.” O’Brien is a Catholic.” Read more: here
Let’s hope if and when this gets (back) to the Supreme Court that Justice Roberts will be out sick with the flu. Or possibly he’ll simply be hit with some constitutionally controlled thought process, once again.
But in any case: it’s doesn’t take a genius to know 2 + 2 = 4; it’s doesn’t take an athletic pro to know when you’re watching a lousy team play and it doesn’t take a Constitutional lawyer to know “obamacare” is unconstitutional.
The Federal Government, by design and according to the Constitution, can NOT mandate what a religious institution is forced to do, especially when it is in opposition to their religious beliefs. This is another reason ‘we’ fled Great Britain and the oppression of King George. “Obamacare” is the extremest example we’ve seen in unconstitutionality, and none of it has the legal right to stand. Not just the ‘contraception’ mandate but every socialist word on all 2400 plus Marxist’s pages.
