Moral Solutions: 2016 March for Life; Stop Obama Executive Orders

The march’s social media campaign — #WhyWeMarch — provides a glimpse of how the pro-life movement and the choice for life has made a difference in the lives of thousands of men and women.

Live Action president Lila Rose tweeted a photo of a couple who canceled their abortion appointment to give their son a chance at life:

The  Reason This Congressman Walked Out of the State of the Union

keyRep. Steve King left President Barack Obama’s State of the Union address to pray for the nation’s unborn babies.

King, R-Iowa, said he prayed in the Congressional Prayer Room “for God to raise up a leader whom he will use to restore the soul of America.”

King walked out of the U.S. House chamber minutes before Obama’s speech Tuesday night, leaving his chair on the House floor empty. He also left his guest gallery seat open to honor aborted babies.

“[Obama] has reserved an empty seat next to the First Lady to commemorate ‘the victims of gun violence who no longer have a voice,’” King said in a formal statement, adding:

There will be another empty seat in the gallery during Obama’s last State of the Union address. I have reserved it to commemorate the lives of more than 55 million aborted babies, ‘the chorus of voices that have never been heard in this world but are heard beautifully and clearly in the next world.’

The Congressional Prayer Room, near the Capitol Rotunda, has been set aside since 1955 for individual members of the House and Senate who wish to retreat for quiet prayer and reflection.

The pro-life conservative announced his plans earlier in the day before Obama gave his annual address to the Congress.

obama-abortion-p-parenthood“President Obama’s first official act, immediately upon his inauguration was to sign an executive order to accelerate abortions worldwide,” King said:

The first tears we have seen him shed in seven years were for the victims of the tragic Sandy Hook School shooting.

As far as we know, Obama has never shed a single tear for even one of the more than 9 million babies aborted under his watch. He is the most pro-abortion president ever.

The White House announced Sunday that a seat would be left vacant for victims of what it calls gun violence.

“I cannot abide sitting in there and being lectured one more time,” King told reporters.

Thus, King exited Obama’s address and retreated to pray, explaining, as The Blaze reported:

So I left my gallery seat empty, and my seat in the House chambers empty in commemoration of those who’ve never had a voice, not those who no longer have a voice, but those unborn babies who have never had a voice—and I’m going to the members’ chapel, where I’m going to spend my time there praying for the unborn, praying for the restoration of the Constitution and that God will raise up a leader whom he will use to restore the soul of America.

obama-checks-balancesFinally, a Strategy to Stop, and Checkmate Obama’s Executive Orders

This is a great plan, but I’m not holding my breath. What Congress says and what they do are not the same. ~C.D.

Many of President Obama’s executive orders—whether the most recent ones calling for more gun control or past ones extending amnesty to millions here illegally—are already being or will one day be challenged in the courts.

This is why it’s encouraging to see reports this week that lawmakers may finally make a real effort to checkmate the president’s proclivity to go around them and create laws on his own. It’s a strategy grassroots activists should demand.

GOPStopObamaPIXThough Congress has given up much of its power when it comes to using its “power of the purse” to stop executive overreach, there is one power it still holds, and there is absolutely no reason not to use it. Article II, Section 2 of the U.S. Constitution, popularly known as “Advise and Consent,” requires the Senate to approve all presidential appointments of cabinet officials, ambassadors, and federal judges.

Obamacare Facts

1. Bombshell: Judge Tells Government They Cannot Force Obamacare Mandates on Americans

keyEveryone who is for abortion has already been born. ~Ronald Reagan

Onan Coca

abortion-2-pro-lifeMonday was a wonderful day in court for conservatives and pro-lifers across the nation. Federal judge Richard Leon handed down his ruling on Monday, permanently prohibiting the federal government from forcing its Obamacare abortion-pill mandate on any pro-life organization – regardless of its religious beliefs.

Up until this decision the Obama administration had argued that any organization that was not a church or religious organization could be forced to offer abortifacients and other contraceptives through their health care plans. However, Judge Richard Leon disagreed.

Judge Leon found that an organization’s moral objections (religious or otherwise) were enough to keep the government from forcing certain Obamacare provisions on them.

The heart of Judge Leon’s argument revolves around the idea that the government cannot differentiate between religious belief and moral relief.
The plaintiff in this case against the Obama administration was March for Life, which, while not a religious organization, is most certainly a uniquely pro-life organization. The very fact that the government believed it could force an organization whose sole mission is to stop abortion to actually pay for abortions is execrable.

abortion3-pro-lifeThe Alliance Defense Fund who argued the case for March for Life was ecstatic with the ruling. ADF’s Senior Legal Counsel Matt Bowman explained March for Life’s position; “Pro-life organizations should not be forced into betraying the very values they were established to advance. This is especially true of March for Life, which was founded to uphold life, not to assist in taking it. The government has no right to demand that organizations provide health insurance plan options that explicitly contradict their mission.”

ADF Senior Counsel Kevin Theriot added; “Americans should not be forced to choose between following their deepest convictions and submitting to unlawful and unnecessary government mandates. We hope other courts that consider similar cases will issue their own orders upholding the right of pro-life organizations to be free from this type of government coercion.”

Thankfully, Judge Leon agreed with ADF and the March for Life in their suit against the Obama administration.

“If the purpose of the religious employer exemption is, as HHS states, to respect the anti-abortifacient tenets of an employment relationship, then it makes no rational sense-indeed, no sense whatsoever to deny March for Life that same respect,” Judge Leon explained.

This won’t be the last time an organization or business that is not explicitly religious has to fight to defend itself from the Obama administration, but hopefully this decision will help them in their battles.
