ObamaCare Forces Catholics to Distribute Morning After Pill

Steven Ertelt, LifeNews.com

The nation’s Catholic bishops and a Catholic organization that monitors Catholic colleges and universities are concerned about the Obama administration’s decision today.

As LifeNews.com reported, the Health and Human Services Department ruled that insurance companies are required to include birth control and drugs that can cause abortions in their coverage by virtue of defining them as preventative care. Pro-life organizations are also concerned that the decision will violate the conscience rights of Catholics and religious and pro-life groups that don’t want to have to pay for insurance that covers birth control and abortion drugs but don’t qualify for the narrowly-drawn conscience limits the Obama administration will put in place under the decision.

The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops sharply criticized the Obama administration’s “preventive services” mandate that it says “requires health plans to cover female surgical sterilization and all drugs and devices approved by the FDA as contraceptives, including drugs which can attack a developing unborn child before and after implantation in the mother’s womb.”

“Although this new rule gives the agency the discretion to authorize a ‘religious’ exemption, it is so narrow as to exclude most Catholic social service agencies and healthcare providers,” said Cardinal Daniel DiNardo, Archbishop of Galveston-Houston and chairman of the USCCB Committee on Pro-Life Activities.

    IF ALL of you band together, they have to back off!!

    Wondering how long it will take for some radical in this administration or the next one to pass a bill making it man-datory for everyone to take a morning after pill? They must still be straining their little brains to come up with a "fool proof" method of identifying those needing the morning after pill!

    Hey Guys, you better hope the thought doesn't cross their little brains to order mandatory vasectomys of all males so they won't need to identify females who need a morning after pill!

      Isn't that the truth, but it will be only for WHITE people, as the rest, the more children they have, the higher amount of FREEBIES they get, including the ILLEGALS.

      After reading your post, I believe you need to direct your anger at the scumbag repubs. for not doing away with the financing of obamacare. They had every chance to defund this monstrosity and they failed. They lied to the people going into the 2010 election and come 2012; they will be remembered!! These gutless, nutless bottom feeding pieces of crap sold out the American people! What a travesty!!

        Dear FRANK, BE REALISTIC, republicans control the House, two important bills were passed by the House, one was the Cap & Balance etc., WHERE DID IT END UP ?? IN THE TRASH, THANKS TO THE DEMOCRATS, AS THEY CONTROL THE SENATE, did you listen to the traitor Obama when he STATED IF THEY PASSED HE WOULD "VETO" THEM? SAME THING HAPPENED WITH THE OUTRAGEOUS OBAMA HEALTH CARE ETC, blaming the republicans is NOT BEING REALISTIC. GET RID OF OBAMA, GET RID OF A DEMOCRAT CONTROLLED SENATE, & THEN NO EXCUSES FOR THE REPUBS, right now, they can really only do so much due to DEMOCRAT CONTROLLED SENATE & THE HORSES ASS IN THE WHITEHOUSE.

    i think this is a crock of shit the church rans the schools not the fing govement.

  5. Can he also force his Imams to distribute the morning after pills to their women too? I think that would benefit the bulk of the western world.

  6. Angelicsweep says:

    obamacare also has done away with the copay for the birthcontrol pills women get each month. On the surface this seems okay, but there is always another reason for this… There is no telling what the nutjobs in the democrap party has put in obamacare that we will only find out about as it unfolds. And I DO blame the republican party for not doing more to unfund obamacare. They have PROVEN in this debt debacle they are not worth wiping your feet on! They have FAILED the American people in so many ways! Who won in this? obama of course…all this crap about how the republican party held out and forced this deal…HOGWASH! It was done from the beginning…another screwing of the American people!

    No it does not. There is a "conscience" clause for any plan to use.

Speak Your Mind
