A Christian-based legal defense alliance is warning Americans who already believe that President Barack Obama's health care plan is a bad idea that the "ObamaCare mandate is worse than you think."
"Everyone likes a good surprise, but no one likes a bad surprise. So, you're really not going to like the surprises buried in the 2,700 pages of this document," says the narrator of a short video produced by the Alliance Defense Fund.
"Did you know that with ObamaCare you will have to pay for life-saving drugs, but life-ending drugs are free. One hundred percent free. If this plan were really about health care wouldn't it be the other way around?"
ADF lawyer Matt Bowman told The Christian Post Tuesday that the new campaign against the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (2010) is an effort to reveal more details about the health care plan that may not be as well known.
"We wanted to raise awareness that Americans are not subjects. ObamaCare treats Americans as subjects instead of citizens of a free country," Bowman argued. "There are extremely alarming attacks on religious freedom and sanctity of human life."
While Obama continues to tout his plan, even embracing the term "Obamacare," it's not clear whether the mandate will still exist by the November election.
The Supreme Court heard oral arguments earlier this year for a set of cases challenging the constitutionality of the Affordable Care Act. After the hearings, most court watchers believed that the most likely outcome is that the court will strike down the individual mandate, a central feature of the law. Plus, if the court strikes down the individual mandate it could strike down the entire law, when it delivers its opinion, arguing that the mandate is too central to the law to leave the rest intact.
The White House has said that there is no "plan B" in place if the Supreme Court declares that the law is unconstitutional.
ADF is not leaving anything to chance and continues to fight aggressively against the mandate.
"Did you know you may be forced to pay an abortion premium directly from your paycheck to cover all types of elective abortions? It's a dollar or more a month, which may not sound like much, but let's just do some simple math. Say just half of American workers are forced to pay a dollar each month, that's $924,000,000 all funneled into an abortion on-demand fund each year," the narrator in the ADF video points out. "That translates to more than two million elective abortions that you have been forced to help fund."
The law group states on its website that it is on the "front lines of the legal battle against ObamaCare."
"Never in America's 236-year history has there been a more serious assault on your religious freedom. Together, we must stop the ObamaCare mandate and stand up for our God-given freedom of conscience and religious liberty."
