Two years ago, when ObamaCare was ramrodded through Congress at the eleventh hour, the American people were squarely against this pro-abortion law that forces Americans to buy a particular good or service as the price of citizenship. Today, only a meager 34% still support this law.

Since the Supreme Court has agreed to hear this landmark case, the constitutionality of ObamaCare is now up to the nine justices. After more than two years fighting against ObamaCare – first in Congress and now in the courts – we finally have the opportunity to defeat this law once and for all.

As the ACLJ urged in our amicus brief asking the Court to take the case, the Court has agreed to consider two key issues: the constitutionality of the individual mandate – the provision forcing all Americans to buy health insurance – and severability – whether the rest of ObamaCare can stand if the individual mandate is struck down.

As we prepare to file our amicus curiae brief opposing this flawed law at the Supreme Court, our argument is simple. The Constitution does not grant Congress the power to force Americans to buy a particular good or service – in this case health insurance – simply for being citizens. Moreover, as the Obama Administration admits, without the individual mandate, the entire health care law collapses and must be struck down.

However, the Supreme Court’s decision will effect far more than just health care. It represents a much larger fight against the ever-expanding role of the federal government in our everyday lives.

Moreover, it is a critical battle in the fight to defend the lives of the unborn. Not only does ObamaCare vastly expand access to and taxpayer funding for abortions, which the Obama Administration continues to deny, but it has now been revealed that the White House knew that President Obama’s Executive Order promising to prevent ObamaCare from funding abortions was a sham.

It was merely intended to pull the wool over enough eyes to pass this pro-abortion legislation through Congress – this from the same administration that broke the law, using our tax dollars to fund pro-abortion lobbying efforts in Africa.

It is clear that this pro-abortion law that restricts our liberty is unconstitutional and must be defeated at the Supreme Court. 106 Members of Congress have already signed on to our brief urging the Court to declare ObamaCare unconstitutional. The American people are also making their voice heard, signing on to our brief by the tens of thousands. Now, over 95,000 Americans have signed the brief. If you haven’t already done so, please join them by signing here.

The ACLJ will continue working to defeat this law once and for all at the Supreme Court, and we will continue to keep you updated as we prepare to file this critical brief.
