Supreme Court Rules Obama Admin Can’t Make Hobby Lobby Obey Pro-Abortion HHS Mandate
The Supreme Court ruled today that the Christian-run Hobby Lobby doesn’t have to obey the HHS mandate that is a part of Obamacare that requires businesses to pay for abortion causing drugs in their employee health care plans.

The Obama administration was attempting to make Hobby Lobby and thousands of pro-life businesses and organizations comply with the HHS mandate that compels religious companies to pay for birth control and abortion-causing drugs for their employees. http://www.lifenews.com/2014/06/30/supreme-court-rules-obama-admin-cant-make-hobby-lobby-obey-pro-abortion-hhs-mandate/

Obama Wants to Force Americans to Pay for Abortion-Causing Drugs Since He Can’t Force Hobby Lobby
So just how is the Obama administration spinning the Supreme Court’s decision today that dealt it a devastating blow? Now that President Barcack Obama can’t force Hobby Lobby and other companies and businesses to pay for abortion-causing drugs, he’s wanting to force Americans to pay for birth control and very early drugs that may cause abortions.

The White House has quickly converted the Supreme Court’s Hobby Lobby decision into a campaign-trail wedge issue, by calling on Congress to continue providing abortion-related drugs to a small number of women who work for Catholic employers. http://www.lifenews.com/2014/06/30/obama-wants-to-force-americans-to-pay-for-abortion-causing-drugs-since-he-cant-force-hobby-lobby/

Hobby Lobby in Pictures: Americans Cheer and Thank God After SCOTUS Victory
The Supreme Court gave the pro-life movement a huge victory today. It determined the Obama administration couldn’t force Hobby Lobby and any other company or business that doesn’t want to pay for abortion-causing drugs or birth control for its employees to obey the HHS mandate forcing it to do so.

Before and after the decision, pro-life advocates flooded the steps of the Supreme Court building with signs and pictures and led chants as the justices were preparing to hand down their decision. Afterwards, they cried tears of joy, cheered and prayed to thank God for the decision. http://www.lifenews.com/2014/06/30/hobby-lobby-in-pictures-americans-cheer-and-thank-god-after-scotus-victory/

Pro-Abortion Activists Threaten to Burn Down Hobby Lobby Stores After SCOTUS Ruling
’The Supreme Court has ruled on behalf of Hobby Lobby against ObamaCare mandating them to pay for at least four drugs they deem abortive which would violate their religious freedoms! According to experts, the 5 to 4 decision applies to “closely-held” corporations.

Following the ruling, Twitter filled up with treats to burn Hobby Lobby to the ground. WARNING: Strong language and violence. http://www.lifenews.com/2014/06/30/pro-abortion-activists-threaten-to-burn-down-hobby-lobby-stores-after-scotus-ruling/



EWTN Wins Big Pro-Life Victory Against HHS Mandate on Heels of Hobby Lobby Decision
On the heels of the Supreme Court ruling today that the Christian-run business Hobby Lobby doesn’t have to obey the HHS mandate that is a part of Obamacare that requires businesses to pay for abortion causing drugs in their employee health care plans, EWTN has won a victory of its own.

The Catholic television network is asking the courts to stop the Obama administration from enforcing the mandate against it while its own lawsuit continues. http://www.lifenews.com/2014/06/30/ewtn-wins-big-pro-life-victory-against-hhs-mandate-on-heels-of-hobby-lobby-decision/

Governor Bobby Jindal of Louisiana is already a pro-life rock star, but the governor may have one-upped himself with this excellent response to the Supreme Court decision today saying the Obama administration can’t force Hobby Lobby to obey the HHS mandate.

Jindal may have earned the prize for the best response to the decision. Well played Mr. Governor, well-played! http://www.lifenews.com/2014/06/30/gov-bobby-jindal-punks-obama-on-hobby-lobby-hes-googling-can-an-executive-order-override-supreme-court/



Kathleen Sebelius Totally Silent on Hobby Lobby Decision Bearing Her Name

Euthanasia Activists Want Nursing Homes to Starve Patients to Death
No line in bioethics is ever fixed. Rather, the push to eradicate the boundaries that keep medical professionalism tied to Hippocratic values (sniffed at as “paternalism” by many in the field) continues unabated, with new boundary lines created, consolidated, and then moved again into ever-more extreme territory. http://www.lifenews.com/2014/06/30/euthanasia-activists-want-nursing-homes-to-starve-patients-to-death/
