Faith and Pro-Life Organizations to 'Encircle' the Supreme Court in Prayer on the Eve of Historic Obamacare Arguments March 26-28
Contact: Rev. Patrick J. Mahoney, 540-538-4741
WASHINGTON, Feb. 23, 2012 /Christian Newswire/ -- The groups will also lay 3,300 flowers around the court as a "prophetic witness" to the Justices, reminding them of the 3,300 children who die every day from abortion.
The prayer vigil and laying flowers around the Supreme Court will take place on Sunday, March 25, at 2:00-4:00 P.M.
There will also be prayer vigils at the Supreme Court beginning at 8:00 A.M. from March 26-28 during the oral arguments.
The name of the project is called "Justice at the Court."
Supreme Court officials expect the Obamacare case to be the biggest one at the Court since Bush v. Gore in 2000.
If the President's health care legislation is declared unconstitutional, it would end taxpayer subsidized abortions and unjust and immoral mandates forcing religious institutions to cover abortion-inducing drugs and sterilization in their health coverage for employees.
Rev. Patrick J. Mahoney, Director of the Christian Defense Coalition and one of the organizers of "Justice at the Court", states;
"We are calling people from all America to come to Supreme Court and 'encircle it with prayer' from March 25-28 as we cry out to God for justice, human rights and religious freedom.
"Sadly, the President's Health Care legislation crushes religious freedom and liberty with unjust mandates on faith institutions and forces taxpayers to pay for abortions.
"We will be praying that Obamacare is declared unconstitutional so Congress can put forward health care legislation that will respect religious freedom, protect human life and honor the principles of our Constitution.
"When Roe v. Wade was decided, the Christian community was detached and uninvolved. We want to make sure that is not the case this time as we challenge people of faith to publicly pray and speak out with boldness and passion."
Some of the sponsors of "Justice at the Court" are:
Faith and Action, Pro-life Nation, The Christian Defense Coalition and Reabhloid DC.
