"Wherefore We must interrupt a silence which it would be criminal to prolong, that We may point out...as they really are, men who are badly disguised." Pope St. Pius X, September 8, 1907, Pascendi Dominici Gregis

United States Conference of Bishops Collectively Grow Backbones

"We cannot—we will not—comply with this unjust law."
- The Most Reverend Joe S. Vasquez, Bishop of Austin

Per the USCCB, here is my letter to my so-called representatives:

I refuse to live in a country that forces me to pay for the extermination of its children. Please co-sponsor the Respect for Rights of Conscience Act (S. 1467). This measure ensures that the rights of conscience of all participants in our nation's health care system will be respected. Please do not reply with written correspondence. The only reply that is acceptable to me as your constituent is for you to co-sponsor and vote in favor of these bills or any other worded so as to have a similar legal effect.

Send your own e-mail here and if you like do borrow freely from the language above.
