If freedom of religion lovers fall for this walking back of the intrusion on freedom of religion in the name of “women’s health,” they are naive. After the election, this will change.
In November, we will definitely have to worry about religious health professionals being forced to perform abortions. Muslims don’t have to check out pork in Wal-Mart but pro-lifers, who are half the nation, will have to abort babies. It has already been discussed and implemented in at least one non-religious hospital where the nurses are suing.
The new Progressive Constitution of 2020 calls for relative freedom of religion.
CNN reported the following breaking news today – President Obama today announced a compromise in the dispute over whether to require full contraception insurance coverage for female employees at religiously affiliated institutions.
Under the new plan, religiously affiliated universities and hospitals will not be forced to offer contraception coverage to their employees. Insurers will be required, however, to offer complete coverage free of charge to any women who work at such institutions.
Female employees at churches themselves will have no guarantee of any contraception coverage — a continuation of current law.
