Nobody compels a Catholic organization to offer health insurance, health services/hospitals...nor compels Catholics to work in any environment they don't want to work in.

I agree it is NOT a Constitutional issue.

It's a legislative issue.

Why shouldn’t they be able to offer health insurance, services, or hospitals?

Because they are Catholic? You are saying that can’t have those things...because they are Catholic and violate a piece of legislation?

So they don’t have that freedom any more to live their lives according to the guidelines set forth by their religion?

"Nobody compels a Catholic organization to offer health insurance"

I'm sorry, but didn't you notice that Obamacare mandates that most employers must carry health insurance for their employees? And if they drop the insurance, they're hit with huge fines and penalties?

You don't see that that's that's coercion or compulsion?

Seriously?

The law does compel Catholics to pay for health insurance, which also must include the offensive items. Therefore the law is in violation of the Constitution -- hence a Constitutional issue. Very simple.

I agree but then there are cases in which doctor’s proscribe “birth control” pills not as a contraceptive but in order to regulate irregular menstrual periods, sometimes as an aid to facilitate conception (which was done in my case) and sometimes to alleviate the very painful and debilitating effects of endometriosis.

Does the Catholic church and their insurance companies make any exceptions in cases of medical necessity? Just asking.
