Stop the California Abortion Mandate
California churches are under attack! The state is forcing private insurance providers to cover abortion on demand, without any exceptions for religious objectors.
California's Department of Managed Health Care is demanding that private health insurers, relied upon by California churches and their staff members, immediately begin covering elective abortions. This is a clear violation of religious freedom for churches and conscientious objectors in California.
According to a complaint filed by Alliance Defending Freedom on behalf of the California churches, “the insurers were instructed to…remove any limitations on health coverage for abortion. That means insurance companies cannot, for any reason, deny coverage for abortion.
The Constitution’s First Amendment was designed to ensure that no law would infringe on the right to practice and express the religion of one’s choice. Forcing churches to participate in the killing of unborn children with their insurance dollars is a clear violation of the First Amendment. This drastic overreach of government authority threatens the very principles of religious liberty upon which this nation was founded.
Is nothing sacred anymore? The Church is the foundation of our nation’s moral values. When even they are forced to pay for the killing of innocent children, we know that the law has been perverted against morality. All too often, where the state of California goes, so goes the nation.
That’s why it’s so essential that take a stand with California churches and demand that the state allows conscientious objectors to refuse to pay for abortion!
We must stand together with a single voice and purpose: no church money for abortion! Please sign the petition and we will send an e-mail message to Shelley Rouillard, the Director of California's Department of Managed Health Care, demanding that she stop enforcing their abortion mandate on churches.
Sign this petition now!
Shelley, please rescind the abortion mandate
