“With all the problems in this world, with the economy, with terrorism, with our country being sold to China, with Iran possibly becoming a nuclear power, with all these things, why is [the Obama administration] so obsessed on reproductive services?
When did reproductive services become the national cry of our nation? When did it become more important than the Bill of Rights, more important than the Constitution?
We [the Catholic Church] are the one voice that speaks out clearly to this culture of death that abortion is wrongâ€¦and now we will be forced to actually pay for someone to have an abortionâ€¦We cannot and will not follow this law. We will go out of business before we will pay to have a child murdered.
President Obama, let us be Catholic!”
