Rubio Introduces Bill To Overturn Contraception Mandate

Senator Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) has introduced a bill to repeal regulations issued by the Obama administration that many faith-based organizations say would force them to buy health insurance plans that violate their consciences.

“The Obama Administration’s obsession with forcing mandates on the American people has now reached a new low by violating the conscience rights and religious liberties of our people,” Rubio said in a Jan. 31 statement.

Rubio also criticized the administration for “forcing religious entities to abandon their beliefs.”

I am sure that other legal actions will also begin. Anyone aware of any such actions?

This will help him win back some respect that I have recently lost for him.

Riiiiiiight. Obama will have to sign this legislation, which will negate that which Obama already signed. Would he? No.

Political impotency like this is convinces me ever more that we will not recover our constitutional republic without a shooting civil war.

More importantly right now....it will continue to raise public awareness of this administration’s repugnance toward freedom of religion. Obama’s signature would be that much more proof against him.

More than likely, it will head to the Supreme Court and be struck down.

It has already been a war for some time. Our battle cry is:

WE WILL NOT COMPLY!!!!!!!!!!

The Catholic church in the United States, with all its resources, should bring a suit against this administration. If they did this, I’m sure other religions would join them.

Obamacare is already on the docket of the Supreme Court.

If the bill became law, it will prevent any regulations issued under the Patient Protection and Affordable Health Care Act from requiring “any individual or entity” to provide coverage or information on contraception or sterilization if that individual or entity is opposed to doing so “on the basis of religious belief.”

It also prohibits the imposition of a fine, penalty or other punishment on individuals or entities that make a religiously-based decision not to purchase such coverage.
