The World Over: Commentary on the HHS Mandate issue

EWTN’s The World Over focused last week on the HHS Mandate, not surprisingly (see video below or watch on YouTube). I finally got to watch it tonight (as I type this, as a matter of fact). Make no mistake: this is not merely a Catholic issue. Everyone’s freedom and liberty and right to conscience is about to go out the window if this mandate is allowed to stand. Goodbye, Liberty, Hello, Brave New World. Unless we stand up and speak out and say NO NOW!

If you don’t want to listen to the Newt Gingrich segment, watch the first segment with Michael Warsaw, CEO of EWTN which is suing over this outrageous mandate, and then fast forward to Fr. Sirico of the Acton Institute, and then watch the Rep. Chris Smith segment. Then learn more and share all of this with friends and family. United we can make a difference!


About Disciple

I am a pro-life activist, blogger, writer, poet, singer songwriter, musician, photographer, nerd, bookworm and Mac fan. I have two dogs, one of whom is well-travelled. (I had three for a while after adopting a senior dog, but he has now passed away, and the pack is back to two girl dogs. One was born after, the days of mammoth road trips.) And the most important thing is: I was received into Holy Mother Church in 1996 and, through the grace of God, I love Christ and His Church more with every passing day. Thanks be to God!

  1. Very much agreed.

    People ignored these concerns for so long, touting that they were just “Catholic problems” and it isn’t anymore. It’s so much more. Not acting now will simply create a trail of injustices and I DON’T want to know where that will end. (Which reminds me, *cough*, I should reaaaally get back to typing that post I’ve been planning regarding the HHS mandate…)

    God bless!

      The conversations and arguments I’ve been having about this have made one thing very clear to me: this moment is a teachable moment. Everything the Obama administration has done and is doing gives us opportunity after opportunity to show others what freedom is and how easily it can be lost, and that we will lose our freedom if we do not stand up and speak out and take action to educate ourselves and others, and use our voting power wisely for a change. For a real change!

      Thanks for reading and commenting, orangetigerlily. Please pray for me and I’ll add you to my prayer list, too. Peace be with you.
