Priests for Life has scored a victory in its challenge to the religious-freedom-busting HHS mandate.

No previous president ever promoted a giveaway more peculiar than Barack Obama’s mandate that all health care plans must offer free sterilizations to all women – but not all men – capable of breeding.

Whether it’s prayer, participating in a rally, casting a vote or making a video. All of us have a role to play in defending our unalienable rights.
