Bioethics Defense Fund

The Pro-Life Legal Case Against the Individual Mandate

The Bioethics Defense Fund has file an amicus brief in the the Eleventh Circuit Obamacare case, arguing that the imposition of the individual mandate has the effect of forcing some Americans to pay, against their wishes, premiums out of their own pockets for abortion provision for others. This requirement, the brief argues, exceeds the boundaries of permissable obligations imposed by government, and is thus unconstitutional. A press release appears here, and the whole brief, well worth reading, is here.
