Dear Father Pavone,
Congratulations on the amazing news that the U.S. Supreme Court will hear your lawsuit! I thank you and Priests for Life for pursing this lawsuit in the federal courts now since 2012 -- battling the entire Obama Justice Department and their army of lawyers every step of the way.
I share your view that ObamaCare’s outrageous mandate that employers (including Christians and pro-life Americans) must include abortion-inducing drugs in health insurance plans is an unconstitutional assault on our religious liberty, as guaranteed to us by federal law and the Constitution itself.
Thank you for explaining that Priests for Life’s LEGAL FUND is completely depleted from your four-year legal fight in the federal courts -- costing hundreds of thousands of dollars.
And thank you for explaining that this FINAL battle in the Supreme Court will cost an estimated $100,000. I am heartened to know that your two lead attorneys are fighting this battle pro bono (not charging for their time) because they believe in the pro-life cause as much as I do. But I also know there are still many other costs in a legal battle of this magnitude. There’s all the legal research that must be done, paralegals and staff who must be paid, plus all the document photocopying and preparation.
I certainly agree with you that we cannot afford to lose this battle in the Supreme Court (which has the FINAL say in this case) . . . and that victory here would be a devastating blow against the abortion industry and ObamaCare’s assault on religious liberty, on pro-life Americans, and on innocent babies in the womb.
To help you fund this FINAL Supreme Court battle that will determine whether religious freedom survives in America or not, I am sending you my very best gift of . . .
