First Lady Hails Free-Contraception Mandate: 'We Made History'

First Lady Hails Free-Contraception Mandate: 'We Made History' By Fred Lucas April 25, 2012

(CNSNews.com) – First lady Michelle Obama boasted at a campaign event in Omaha, Neb. on Tuesday that the Obama administration made history when it passed the president's health care proposal--and mandated that insurance companies would have to provide free contraceptives.

"Two years ago, we made history together by finally passing health reform," said Mrs. Obama. "And because we passed this law, insurance companies will now have to cover basic preventive care--things like prenatal care, mammograms, contraception--at no extra cost."

The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) finalized the "preventive services" regulation in January and it will take effect for most employers on Aug. 1. It mandates that nearly all health insurance plan in the United States must provide women with sterilizations and all FDA-approved contraceptives, including those that can induce abortion, without any fees or co-pay.

The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops and many Catholic leaders in the United States have voiced strong opposition to the mandate because they say it would force Catholics--whose church teaches that sterilization, contraception and abortion are wrong--to act against their consciences and the teachings of their faith. In comments submitted to the Department of Health and Human Services, in which they asked the administration to rescind the regulation, the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops called it an "unprecedented attack" on religious liberty.

Now we need immediate data showing how much this FREE contraception is going to COST us when insurance companies charge us.

Either she didn’t get the memo or the whole administration has it’s head stuck up Obama’s ass.

Michelle, that Health Care thingy you are boasting about, it not popular in America and is before the Supreme Court as potentially unconstitutional. I wouldn’t be out reminding people about how proud you are to have forced Americans to “buy” something and that many American’s will be forced to go against their faith.

On second thought, keep up the good work.

Hitler made history too. So did Pol Pot, Stalin and Osama Bin Laden. Making history isn’t necessarily a good thing, Michelle.

The same idiots that demand a living minimum wage also want more and more "free" stuff. You can't pay people for their work and have any free stuff. The only question is who has to pay the cost.

When they say free stuff, what they really mean is that someone else should have to pay for the stuff they want. There is nothing more selfish than a liberal.

“...at no extra cost.”

There is always a cost. There is a cost for every action.

Electing Obama & having a First Wookie as FLOTUS has been at a tremendous cost.

As someone (Walter Williams?) put it - “For one person to get a thing without paying for it, another person must pay for that thing without getting it”.

"Two years ago, we made history

Yeah ...

Adolph Hitler made history.

Josef Stalin made history.

Mohammed made history.

Nero Claudius Caesar Augustus Germanicus made history.

Cain made history.

"Making history" isn't necessarily a good thing.

“for me my medical cost have already been hit by her hubby’s fed gov rules.”

i have a chronic illness and every doctor I have visited has a combination of rage and fear and sadness about what Obamacare will do to their practice but primarily what it will do to their patients.

The sweetest & cheeriest doctor I know is a young oncologist who always has a large room of patients having their medicine dripped while they sit for some time for the procedure.

He treats them & I believe he LOVES his patients, too. When you go into his office, he hugs you. He takes care and checks with his patients - mind, body and soul.

I asked him about his oncology patients if Obamacare goes through.

He shook his head and looked so grieved and just said “maybe it won't pass. I hope it doesn't.”

He says this while about 20 people of all ages are enduring the drip.

He looked so GRIEVED. I had never seen him like that. He is always so cheery in spite of caring for some patients who are terminal and without much hope.

He is cheery for them to help them and their families to cope. He always has hope and cares so deeply but he can only help some patients go “home”.

Obama has cold water for blood to be passing his atrocity of “care”.

May his ass be kicked by the Supreme Court.

Ms. Obama's mantra of "at no extra cost" is like the ad for the much advertised motorized 'chair'...."I didn't have to pay a penny out of my pocket....."...well someone did and someone will have to pay for the Obamacare Snake Oil mandate Ms. Obama claims will cost you nothing............

Your characterization is far too benign.

He, and his puppetteers on the other end of the Blackberry, burn with a white-hot hatred of this country, Western Civilization, and freedom in general.

This s##t is reason #1 why, even though I’ll probably have to cough up my lunch before doing it, I’ll go in and pull the lever for Romney (I know, I don’t care much for him either). But damn, we know Obama, besides being a Marxist hell bent on destroying what’s left of this country, never met an abortion he didn’t like.

Since when did the US voters pass a bill granting her powers to make laws? Or was that another of Hussein's late Friday Executive Orders?

"First lady Michelle Obama boasted at a campaign event ... that the Obama administration made history when it passed the president's health care proposal--and mandated that insurance companies would have to provide free contraceptives."

Gosh, Michele Obama is such a persuasive speaker. Can't guess how many voters she swung over to the Democratic side with these comments.

"The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) finalized the "preventive services" regulation in January and it will take effect for most employers on Aug. 1."

Umm, it'll never take effect because the SCOTUS will overturn the legislation two months earlier.
