When Barack Obama was a state Senator, he argued on the floor of the Senate for post-birth abortion. An aborted baby, who was alive at birth, was left to die in a linen closet. A nurse found the baby and took care of the baby until he died. Obama argued in support of those who left the baby to die and against the nurse’s actions. This should tell you where Obama stands on abortion and birth control.
Obama has declared that private universities and hospitals, even those opposed to birth control and morning after pills, will be required to provide them for free after a one year waiver is up. He ignored appeals by religious organizations asking him for an exemption.
By this action, Obama is inflicting his pro-abortion and pro-birth control views on PRIVATE religious institutions and forcing them to do his bidding. HE IS INTRUDING ON FREEDOM OF RELIGION. I don’t care what anyone thinks about abortion and birth control, the issue of freedom of religion is a sacred one and not to be tampered with by a pompous narcissist who thinks he is above the law.
How far can the government reach into peoples’ lives?
Why are we all made to pay for other peoples sexcapades anyway? Let them pay for their own birth control and abortion pills.
Many church-affiliated institutions will have to cover free birth control for employees, the Obama administration announced Friday in an election-year move that outraged religious groups, fueling a national debate about the reach of government.
In a concession, Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius said nonprofit institutions such as church-affiliated hospitals, colleges and social service agencies will have one additional year to comply with the requirement, issued in regulations under President Barack Obama’s health care overhaul.
“I believe this proposal strikes the appropriate balance between respecting religious freedom and increasing access to important preventive services,” Sebelius said in a statement.
Yet the concession was unlikely to stop a determined effort by opponents to block or overturn the rule. If they fail, some predicted that religious employers would simply drop coverage for their workers, opting instead to pay fines to the federal government under the health care law.
“Never before has the federal government forced individuals and organizations to go out into the marketplace and buy a product that violates their conscience,” said New York Cardinal-designate Timothy Dolan, president of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops. “This shouldn’t happen in a land where free exercise of religion ranks first in the Bill of Rights.” Read more: Healthland
