MRC has filed a lawsuit

Get out of the pews and get onto the House of Representative floor
"FIGHT BACK, VOTE BACK"

THE FOLLOWING IS REPRINTED FROM MRC


Thanks to Obamacare, the Media Research Center is being threatened with outrageous fines totaling $4.5 million per year, starting this May. That is more than $12,500 every day! These fines will put us out of business.

Our offense? We oppose the federal government's move to functionally revoke our Constitutional right of religious liberty demanding that we subsidize contraception, abortifacients, and sterilizations.
We have carefully explored our options and determined that we only have one viable alternative: legal action.

We have filed suit in federal court to force the government to certify our exemption from Obamacare's unethical and unconstitutional mandates.

The initial hearing in our lawsuit against the Obama Administration's Health and Human Services department is scheduled for June 6.

The MRC is leading the way: we are the first non-profit organization to take this type of action. This will be a seminal case in the fight against this legislative overreach.

This lawsuit comes with known risks. We will be forced to incur significant legal expenses to defend ourselves—estimated at $150,000—but after exhausting our alternatives, our choice is clear: we must stand for liberty.

We only get one chance at this. A victory for us will be a victory for all who value religious liberty. It's critical that we have the resources to make our day in court count.

Can you commit at least $5 per month to sustain our fight?

Thank you so much for your help—we are counting on our valued members and supporters to help us cover the cost of this important battle so that we don't have to take one dime away from our efforts to neutralize the liberal media.

We can't do it without you.

Sincerely,



L. Brent Bozell III
Founder and President
Media Research Center
