SAN ANTONIO, Texas, May 21 /Christian Newswire/ — The Justice Foundation will hold a press conference in front of the Alamo, 300 Alamo Plaza, San Antonio, Texas, on Wednesday, May 26 at 10:00 a.m. to discuss the mass action lawsuit they are preparing to represent plaintiffs who oppose the new health care legislation on a number of constitutional grounds.
May 26, 2010 10 a.m.
The Alamo, 300 Alamo Plaza, San Antonio, Texas
This effort, known as Project Liberty USA, seeks ten thousand plaintiffs from across the country with the same beliefs. The health care law is being challenged on the basis of the Ninth Amendment, economic and personal liberties, and rights — which are reserved to the People — and the Tenth Amendment, which reserves rights to individuals and to the States. It is also based on the First Amendment, including individuals who object to being forced to pay for abortions in violation of their free exercise of religion.
Plaintiffs will be on hand from Grassroots America — We the People, Operation Outcry, women who have been hurt by abortion, and other individuals from grassroots groups. There will be a statement describing the lawsuit and time for questions afterwards.
“We believe this Health Care Act is unconstitutional and interferes with our individual rights and liberty to make our own health care decisions,” said JoAnn Fleming, Executive Director of Grassroots America — We the People and Spokesperson for many of the plaintiffs in this mass action.
Grassroots America — We the People (GAWTP), a conservative grassroots organization in Tyler, Texas, is encouraging individuals to file a mass action lawsuit regarding the unconstitutionality of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act signed into law by President Obama on March 23, 2010, and the companion Health Care and Education Reconciliation Act of 2010 signed on March 30, 2010. The Justice Foundation, a non-profit litigation firm in San Antonio, Texas, which represents clients in public interest and limited government cases, along with a team of lawyers throughout Texas, is representing these plaintiffs.
One of the unique aspects of this litigation is that The Justice Foundation is also representing women who have been devastated by their own abortions.
