Ohio Free Press caught up with Father Dennis R. Schuelkens, Jr. in St. Clairsville, OH at the America Rising Rally this past weekend. The event was held at North Star Polaris in St. Clairsville and featured a variety of speakers. Father Schuelkens spoke about Obamacare and what it means to the Catholic Church, the hospitals that are Catholic run, and the people they serve – which is about 20% of the population of the United States according Father Schuelkens. This would have a huge impact on the healthcare of all Americans.
“The mandate said that we would would have one year, twelve months, to effectively figure out how we could violate our conscious.” Father Schulkens also said that “one of the options would be to close the doors before we would actually provide services of abortion, sterilization, and contraception.”
