AMERICAN LIFE LEAGUE MOURNS WITH THE NATION

American Life League Declares a Sad Day in the History of Our Nation as
the Supreme Court Brings to Naught Our Hopes of Freedom

(Washington, D.C.) - American Life League expresses profound disappointment and joins fellow Americans in condemning the Supreme Court of the United States in its decision to uphold Obamacare as law. Judie Brown, president of American Life League, issued the following statement:

This is indeed a sad day for the people of this once great nation where liberty has always been equated with freedom of religion, freedom from oppression, and freedom of speech. The government's draconian healthcare law denies so many rights that the true result is yet unknown, but surely liberty has been trounced in unbelievable fashion.

Let us pray for our nation. We must remember in these dark days that, while we are proud to be Americans, our primary loyalty is to God, not man and surely not the government. Civil disobedience appears to be one of the few options we have, and we say bring it.
