President Obama and Kathleen Sebelius are back at it.
Conscience-minded business owners with more than 50 employees will continue to be forced to pay for coverage for contraceptives, abortion-inducing drugs, and sterilization procedures. This includes Michigan businessman John Kennedy and Missouri businessman Frank OBrien, both of whom are represented and defended by our CatholicVote.org Legal Defense Fund.
Pro-life organizations, schools or charities which are not explicitly religious will still be forced to pay for abortion inducing drugs if they have more than 50 employees.
The new rules provide NO options for private individuals who seek insurance coverage that respects their conscience.
So what changed?
Some religious nonprofits (schools, hospitals, and charities) are being told they can now opt out of the exemption but in name only. The proposal will allow some of our Catholic colleges, hospitals, and charities to provide coverage that exempts these immoral medicines BUT the same insurance company will step in and provide the objectionable services to their employees for free.
By raising a religious objection, some faith-based institutions can now avoid directly paying the insurance company for objectionable medicines and procedures yet the premiums they pay will go straight to an insurance company that will create a separate policy that will cover the very things these religious employers believe are wrong.
Likewise, self-insured plans like those used by many dioceses and large faith-based groups will be forced to cover their eyes while their plan Administrator does the same thing.
What a sham.

Republicans are idiots. This is a gift that will keep on giving. Get a PR company and start getting ads out.
Nothing has changed.
