The Senate is expected to vote either today or tomorrow on the "Blunt Amendment" that would end the HHS mandate if successfully passed.
Contact Senator Landrieu now at all numbers and ask her to vote YES to the Blunt Amendment!
You can email Senator Landrieu at this link.
The text of the amendment is taken directly from the Respect for Rights of Conscience Act (S. 1467). It would amend the Obama health care law to prevent the imposition of regulatory mandates that violate the religious or moral convictions of those who purchase or provide health insurance. The Blunt Amendment is being offered as an amendment to the pending transportation bill.
To be clear, this is not a debate only about the Catholic Church or the specific parameters of the "birth-control" mandate. Exactly the same statutory authority present in the health care law could be used by this or a future administration to mandate that all health plans pay for elective abortion on demand.
We are on a dangerous slippery slope, and it must stop here, or we could be paying for even more abortion as a nation in the coming years.
From Senator Landrieu's comments last week, it appears she will side with the mandate. It is up to us to spread the word and encourage action. Forward this email and post on Facebook/Twitter using the buttons above.
Contact Senator Landrieu and ask her to vote yes on the Blunt Amendment to end the HHS mandate.
For a Pro-Life Louisiana,
Louisiana Right to Life
P.S. Remember, once the foot is in the door, abortion advocates will be able to swing it open even wider and mandate all insurers cover abortion.
Act now and contact Senator Landrieu in hopes we can stop this and other future mandates.
