New Video Exposes Health Care Rationing in Obamacare

Obama: HHS Mandate is Why We Passed Obamacare, It s Staying
As the Obama administration faces dozens of lawsuits from Catholic and evangelical colleges, businesses and organizations forced to pay for abortion-causing drugs, President Barack Obama thumbed his nose at them.
Obama said on Friday that his administration has no plans to get rid of the controversial HHS mandate and that the mandate was one of the reasons for approving Obamacare in the first place. http://www.lifenews.com/2012/10/08/obama-hhs-mandate-is-why-we-passed-obamacare-its-staying/
Obama Was Wrong: Obamacare s IPAB Will Ration Life-Saving Care
A rose by any other name, Shakespeare wrote, would smell just as sweet. Unfortunately, the same is true when the fragrance is less pleasant.
When the role of Obamacare s Independent Payment Advisory Board in rationing life-saving medical treatments is alleged, the law s apologists indignantly point out that the law specifically precludes the board from rationing. They seem convinced this demonstrates that the charges of rationing are unarguably false. But are they right? http://www.lifenews.com/2012/10/08/obama-was-wrong-obamacares-ipab-will-ration-life-saving-care/

Mother: My Daughter Happily Sacrificed Her Life to Save Babies

Is the UN Trying to Criminalize Pro-Life Groups?

While the OHCHR may well approve such an outcome, this aim is not clear in the text of the document. http://www.lifenews.com/2012/10/08/is-the-un-trying-to-criminalize-pro-life-groups/
