Obamacare Ruling Energizes Pro-Life Movement, Romney Campaign
Pro-Life leaders at the National Right to Life Conference said the Supreme Court’s decision to uphold Obamacare will strengthen both the pro-life movement and Mitt Romney’s presidential campaign.
On Thursday, the United States Supreme Court upheld the Affordable Care Act, arguing its individual mandate constitutes a tax upon Americans. On the same day, pro-life leaders gathered at the Hyatt Regency hotel in Crystal City, Virginia, for the yearly conference of the National Right to Life Committee (NRLC).
When a spokesman for NRLC delivered news of the ruling on Thursday morning, the crowd grew quiet. One audience member broke the silence, saying “no!”
Burke J. Balch, Director of NRLC’s Robert Powell Center for Medical Ethics, said the Affordable Care Act threatens health care rationing as early as 2013.
