THE UNITED STATES OF CHINA?: ObamaCare Contraception Taking Us One Step Closer (Guest in EDT)
The frightening notion that our irresponsibility in Washington is leading us down the path to becoming nothing more than a colony of China is not lost on most Americans. Although, to this point, it has had everything to do with China funding our government’s obscene spending addiction.
But now, with the oppressive creep of ObamaCare taking root in our garden, we may be morphing into Communist China in a completely different way. And Chris Slattery, a foremost pro-life advocate and founder of EMC Front Line Pregnancy Centers, is available to comment.
At this point, the contraception coverage debate that began as an issue of religious liberty and has since taken some other irrelevant twists and turns is widely known.
But yet another new problem has emerged, with critics led by Congresswoman Michelle Bachmann (R-MN) projecting that both the conditions and the government authority will soon be in place to impose a mandate that feels a heck of a lot like China’s one-child-per-family law.
On behalf of the White House, Health & Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius argues that ObamaCare imposing insurance coverage for contraceptives is justified by the fact it will reduce health care costs.
In response, Bachmann says, “…with that logic, it isn’t far fetched to think the President…could say…we need to save health care expenses…[so] the federal government will only pay for one baby to be born in the hospital per family. Or two babies…born per family. That could happen.”
Sound crazy? Another Obama cabinet member, science czar John Holdren, is on record arguing for government population control. And other ObamaCare critics paint a clear projection on why rationing of services is inevitable in a government healthcare system.

ABOUT YOUR EXPERT GUEST CHRIS SLATTERY:
Chris Slattery founded Expectant Mother Care, also known as EMC FrontLine Pregnancy Centers, in 1985 in Manhattan. EMC has grown to 12 office locations, including Westchester, Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, the Bronx, and Hudson County NJ. Chris was honored with the “Champion for Life” award, a pro-life tribute, from John Cardinal O’Connor, and had the privilege of being the Confirmation sponsor of the famous Dr. Bernard Nathanson, the producer of the acclaimed videos, The Silent Scream and Eclipse of Reason.
Chris opened NYC’s first full-time crisis pregnancy center locations, and quickly implemented on-site clinic care with ultrasound and full pre-natal care programs, 26 years ago. He did this to supplement the main work of crisis pregnancy counseling. EMC’s counselors have served more 110,000 girls and women since they opened, and have saved more than 40,000 from a certain abortion in that time. Thousands have turned to abstinent lifestyles as well. They provide one-on-one friendly counseling and, in many locations, on-site medical care, in addition to referrals for adoption, housing and legal aid, and material supplies for mothers and babies.
Chris has been sued by two NY State Attorney Generals, Robert Abrahms and Elliott Spitzer, the former Governor (D) of NY, as well as by numerous abortion mills. He also recently won a quick settlement of suit filed against a major NY abortion mill chain for their deceptive advertising in the Yellow Pages. Chris has been a pro-life leader for more than 30 years—organizing Operation Rescue in NYC, prayer vigils, protests at Planned Parenthood conferences, board meetings and abortion sites, Marches, Life Chains, Truth Tours, training sessions, conferences, press conferences, and lawsuits against his opponents.
Chris has been leading the charge against Bill #371 in the NYC Council to regulate pregnancy centers with onerous unconstitutional speech regulations.
Chris has granted thousands of TV, radio and print media interviews with local, national and international media in the past 30 years.
