This is not about access to contraception, which is ubiquitous and inexpensive, even when it is not provided by the Churchs hand and with the Churchs funds. This is not about the religious freedom of Catholics only, but also of those who recognize that their cherished beliefs may be next on the block. This is not about the Bishops somehow banning contraception, when the U.S. Supreme Court took that issue off the table two generations ago. Indeed, this is not about the Church wanting to force anybody to do anything; it is instead about the federal government forcing the Churchconsisting of its faithful and all but a few of its institutionsto act against Church teachings. This is not a matter of opposition to universal health care, which has been a concern of the Bishops Conference since 1919, virtually at its founding. This is not a fight we want or asked for, but one forced upon us by government on its own timing. Finally, this is not a Republican or Democratic, a conservative or liberal issue; it is an American issue.

It is also hard to believe that One Evil Man can attempt to take away our rights given to us by GOD and enumerated in the Constitution. At the moment there a great deal of evidence that Obama was never QUALIFIED to be President.
Let him prove he is qualified since he spent over 2 million
Dollars to Obstruct the investigation.
But to stick his nose into the rules of the Catholic Church
is Breathtakingly Evil.
Triple SHAME on the people who put this guy in the “White House”.
The paying for contraceptives is bad enough, but the new $1 per month surcharge on everyone’s health insurance earmarked to specifically pay for abortions is over the top. This will force millions of Americans individually to go against their conscience and religious beliefs. It would be an easy step to expand this mandate to cover euthanasia and assisted suicide.
