No Law at All
by Gregg Jackson
The main reason why Obama’s “contraception mandate” is unconstitutional is that ALL of Obamacare is unconstitutional regardless of what the Supreme Court may say in June.
Obamacare (like Romneycare on which it was based) is a clear violation of the Supreme Law of the Land.
Neither the federal nor any individual state government possesses the constitutional authority to force (or mandate) any individual citizen to purchase any good or service. Period!
And that is the main argument that should have been made from the very beginning.
The moment Obamacare opponents ceded that any portion of it was constitutional was the exact moment they lost the debate.
Since Obamacare in toto is unconstitutional it should be ignored by every individual state.
Any individual state governor that enforces any part of the legally null and void Obamacare abomination, is in violation of their oath to only enforce laws in accord with the United States Constitution. And no governor has to get permission from any court to fulfill their primary duty as chief law enforcement officer of that state!
Secondarily, the HHS mandate forcing religious employers to offer free contraception coverage including abortafascients is unconstitutional not because it violates “religious conscience” or “church teachings” as many prominent religious leaders such as Archbishop (and Cardinal designate) Timothy Dolan of New York, president of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops are claiming.
While the mandate may be in violation of both, the primary reason the mandate is unconstitutional is because it directly violates God’s Law…”Thou Shall Not Murder.” Period!
No law contrary to God’s Divinely Revealed Law or the “Laws of Nature and Nature’s God” is any law at all paraphrasing St. Thomas Aquinas and is the primary reason to oppose Obamacare and the mandate.
