Obama Lawyers Desperately Try to 'Dismiss' Lawsuit by Pro-Life Catholic Group Against ObamaCare
April 25, 2012
Priests for Life, a New York-based international pro-life organization of Catholic clergy and laity, today announced that the Obama Administration's lawyers are trying desperately to "shut down" the lawsuit that's been filed to stop ObamaCare from violating the conscience and morals of America's Catholics.
The lawsuit, Priests for Life v. Sebelius, seeks to permanently block the implementation of the HHS mandate that imposes clear violations of conscience upon any and all citizens who morally object to abortion and contraception.
"Since the HHS mandate directly affects Priests for Life -- and every U.S. citizen -- through compulsory funding of contraception and abortion-inducing drugs and devices, our lawsuit is 100 percent legitimate," says Priests for Life’s lead attorney Charles LiMandri.
LiMandri elaborates: "And yet, the Obama lawyers are trying to say that we don't have 'standing' because the abortion mandate 'doesn't go into effect' for PFL for several months. This is a thoroughly ridiculous and embarrassing argument for Obama's attorneys to make. It shows how desperate they are to dismiss our lawsuit -- even to the point of resorting to outrageous arguments such as the ones they're using now." the rest
