WASHINGTON, February 10, 2012 (LifeSiteNews.com) - The White House announced today that, instead of forcing religious employers to pay for birth control, it will force insurance companies to offer the drugs free of charge to all women, no matter where they work.
The plan, touted as a concession to freedom of religion and conscience, was immediately denounced by pro-life Rep. Chris Smith. The so-called new policy is the discredited old policy, dressed up to look like something else,. said Smith. .It remains a serious violation of religious freedom. Only the most naï or gullible would accept this as a change in policy.
The White House Fact Sheet is riddled with doublespeak and contradiction, Smith continued. It states, for example, that religious employers will not have to pay for abortion pills, sterilization and contraception, but their insurance companies will. Who pays for the insurance policy? The religious employer.
Well, what is the answer from the “in” crowd”?
Claire always answers with “not yet”.
this is not just about contraception but the MSM is playing that way, this is about sterilization, abortion.
Notice how the MSM ignore those other points and issues on this ?
We cannot let the MSM dictate the terms of this issue like we always do, remind all that this is a bigger picture than just contraception and get the message out as the MSM is doing all they can to minimize this issue.
Ask people should one Catholic hospital now be told they have to give abortions?
Regardless of of one is religious or not we have laws and amendments which state the Govt shall not infringe on religion
What part of freedom of religion do they not understand, ?
What on earth is she waiting for?
The White House will force insurance companies to offer the drugs free of charge to all women!! <<
The White House will force GM to offer the “Volt” free of charge to all minorities under the Federal poverty level!
Hail to the Chief!!...Vote Obama! /s

“I just absolutely love how he stirred up a highly controversial issue in the middle of a presidential election cycle. And they keep saying how smart he is.”
Although I doubt that idiot Obama’s IQ is any higher than 90, I am sure that the commie RATs (not just Obama) are intentionally raising this controversial issue at this time. Nothing in politics happens by accident, at least nothing of this magnitude.
Darn good questions. I pose it to all on the thread. My answer .....
I know quite a few Catholic women who have used birth control at times for various reasons. But absolutely NONE of them support forcing the Church to pay for it when it violates their teachings.
I was thinking condoms - probably be cited for some environmental violation.
But one thing’s for sure, I would look nothing like the wearer of that outfit...
Besides, Newt's already had enough bad press without having photos of him throwing condoms into the river making the papers.
Failing that, you can't miss with a green sweater! (bring it back, you BASTARDS!!!)
Does Obama not fear the Lord??? Does he not realize that he will burn in hell???
As I understand, the regime’s policy yesterday was that if you were a direct employee of the Catholic Church (working in a rectory or the diocesan offices), you could be given a policy that didn’t cover birth control agents or abortifacients; if you worked for a Catholic school or hospital, you had to be covered with those things.
Obama’s “improved accomodation” is now ALL of those individuals will have to have those things covered, since ALL policies will have to include them.

Are they allowed to speak Austrian on Air Force One while it takes a “tour” of Manhatten?
