Pro-Life coalition asks President Trump to nominate pro-life HHS Secretary

 

Dear President Donald Trump,

From the earliest days of your run for the presidency, you found loyal and effective allies in the pro-life community, and we have appreciated the promises kept such as nominating pro-life judicial nominees, reinstating the Mexico City Policy, and promising to sign the Pain Capable Unborn Protection Act. As you know, personnel is policy, and with a key appointment pending, we join together asking you to appoint a pro-life individual to the position of Secretary of Health and Human Services.

We witnessed the politicization of healthcare at HHS as the Obama Administration used the Affordable Care Act to create new income streams for the abortion industry and to force pro-life and religious groups to fund life-ending drugs and devices in health insurance, as well as trying to pressure the states to include abortion in their own programs. Especially as the critical job of addressing the anti-life monstrosity that is Obamacare remains incomplete, we need a nominee who will respect the pro-life convictions of the American people and use HHS resources to affirm life.

Abortion is not healthcare. The scarce resources of the American taxpayer should be invested in life-affirming medical care, rather than in abortion vendors. Nor should it be a policy goal of the U.S. to force people to subsidize life-ending drugs and devices against their Constitutional rights of conscience and religion.

Mr. President, we ask you to ignore the voices who argue that a so-called “moderate” candidate who does not share your views is capable of handling the responsibilities of a job that should be focused on real, effective healthcare rather than abortion. We ask that your choice for HHS Secretary be committed to affirming life.

Sincerely,

Kristan Hawkins, President

National Religious Freedom Rallies This Friday

A good friend of ours, and an ally in our fight to abolish abortion, Eric Scheidler (Pro-Life Action League) is hosting a nation-wide event this Friday called Stand Up for Religious Freedom Day. These rallies are being hosted in over 130 cities all across America from 12 – 1pm local time in front of various federal government buildings.

The National Stand Up for Religious Freedom day rallies are in direct response to the Obama Administration and his Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius’ mandate that you and I pay for abortion causing drugs through our employee provided health care plans. This is an affront to all men and women of faith and even to those who just object conscientiously.

The team here at SFLA will be speaking at various Stand Up for Religious Freedom Rallies. Kristan, our executive director will be speaking at the rally here in Washington, DC in front of the Health and Human Services headquarters – right where this mandate originated from!

So please, take a stand this Friday by attending a Stand Up for Religious Freedom Rally in your community and if you are in the DC area, come join us!

And don’t forget that we have put together a “Where’s the Freedom?” Action Kit for you. This Action Kit will give you all the tools that you need to be constantly being a voice for freedom and conscience in this nation as we stand together to oppose the Obama, Abortion Drug Mandate.
