The reason is Obama knows that his administration and health care law are intentionally shoving back against the nuns' convictions and, indeed, the very power of the Roman Catholic Church -- a huge advocate for the rights of the unborn. Obama is waging war against the Catholic Church and other faith-based organizations to see just how much he can choke the wind out of their beliefs about contraception and abortion and enforce government control over their conscience.
Their faith crisis is a nonprofit ecclesiastical replay of what happened in 2012 with some for-profit companies -- Hobby Lobby, Mardel Christian & Education Stores and a Pennsylvania woodworking company, all of which refused to comply with Obamacare's mandate to provide birth control based upon the owners' religious beliefs to do so.
The very constitutional religious rights of every American are being represented and trampled in the nuns' case and Obama's power play. As go the nuns, so we go.
Seeing as our president won't value and honor life in the womb, please write or call your local, state and federal representatives and let them know where you stand. And then ensure your local community of faith is honoring Sanctity of Human Life Sunday on Jan. 19. The day commemorates the Jan. 22, 1973, Roe v. Wade U.S. Supreme Court decision, which legalized abortion in our country. Since then, more than 55 million abortions have taken place in the U.S.
Here are a few ways you can prepare for Sanctity of Human Life weekend:
--Ask your pastor, priest or rabbi how your place of worship is observing Sanctity of Human Life Sunday by fighting for the lives and rights of the unborn.
--Please read the article titled "50 Ways To Help Unborn Babies and Their Mothers," by my friend and prolific author Randy Alcorn. It's one of a host of great resources at his website, http://www.epm.org. Also, get several copies of Randy's book "Why Pro-Life?" and hand them out to others.
--Visit the website started by my dear friends Norm and Anne Miller, http://www.iamsecond.com. In particular, please listen to the powerful testimony of Lisa Luby Ryan. It is well worth your time.
--Watch the story of Abby Johnson, the former director of the Bryan, Texas, Planned Parenthood clinic who blew the whistle on her former employer by telling the shocking truth about everything she saw inside the abortion industry -- and resigned from her job to join the pro-life movement. Johnson helped to expose the multibillion-dollar marketing of abortion in the fifth episode of the Emmy-winning series "Facing Life Head-On," available to watch online. Also check out Johnson's new book, "Unplanned," which details her exposure of Planned Parenthood.
--I am also honored to fight for human life in the chapter "Reclaim the Value of Human Life," in my New York Times best-seller "Black Belt Patriotism," which is available at http://www.chucknorris.com. A free chapter can be obtained at http://www.chucknorrisnewbook.com.
--Most of all, remember these words by British orator Edmund Burke, which are probably more true in our day than they were when he stated them: "The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing."
Next week, I will unveil what Obama's abortion agenda is for the remainder of his presidency.
