Obama Forces Religious Institutions to Cover Free Contraception for Employees


St. Michaels

The Obama Administration boasted today about forcing religious institutions to cover free contraception to employees including abortion drugs. The president bragged about the law to a St. Louis audience last year.
Catholic Vote reported, via Free Repubic:

Liberals are crowing about what they see as a huge victory for them — and they are right — because this victory comes at the expense of religious liberty.

Welcome to the Obama 2012 reelection plan: ignore and marginalize people of faith, pander to the far-left’s sexual-political priorities.

This via the far-left site ThinkProgress

Today, in a huge victory for women’s health, Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius announced that most employers will be required to cover contraception in their health plans, along with other preventive services, with no cost-sharing such as co-pays or deductibles. This means that after years of trying to get birth control covered to the same extent that health plans cover Viagra, our country will finally have nearly universal coverage of contraception.

Opponents of contraception had lobbied hard for a broad exemption that would have allowed any religiously-affiliated employer to opt out of providing such coverage. Fortunately, the Obama administration rejected that push and decided to maintain the narrow religious exemption that it initially proposed. Only houses of worship and other religious nonprofits that primarily employ and serve people of the same faith will be exempt. Religiously-affiliated employers who do not qualify for the exemption and are not currently offering contraceptive coverage may apply for transitional relief for a one-year period to give them time to determine how to comply with the rule.

Catholic leaders previously voiced their opposition to the new Obamacare regulations that force faith groups to violate church tenets and pay for employees’ birth control. The new rules are so strict that most Catholic institutions will not qualify for an exemption.

    Not two weeks ago the Supreme Court of the United States of America put forth a unanimous decision on a religious liberty case that specified that religious institutions are not subject to various employment laws. I suspect Obama is counting his chickens FAR too soon in the face of a direct precident.

    Catholic institutions should not only ignore Sebelius, but publicly defy her. Let Obama’s minion try to enforce it. It’s be ANOTHER unanimous decision in favor of religious liberty.

    Letter to Obama: It’s not just Catholics who oppose HSS over ‘contraception mandate’

    The services outlined in the guidelines will be required in insurance policies that begin their plan years Aug. 1 of this year or thereafter, according to HHS. If the interim rule on the religious exemption is altered, it will become effective at the same time.

    In addition to Land, other signers of the letter included Leith Anderson, president of the National Association of Evangelicals; Colby May, senior counsel of the American Center for Law and Justice; Tom Minnery, senior vice president of Focus on the Family; Stanley Carlson-Thies, president of the Institutional Religious Freedom Alliance; Nathan Diament, executive director for public policy of the Union of Orthodox Jewish Congregations of America; Abba Cohen, vice president for federal affairs of Agudath Israel of America; Samuel Rodriguez, president of the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference; Ron Sider, president of Evangelicals for Social Action; and Paul Corts, president of the Council for Christian Colleges and Universities.

    Also signing were the heads of the Association of Gospel Rescue Missions, Christian Community Development Association, Christian Legal Society and Prison Fellowship Ministries. The presidents of four schools affiliated with Baptist state conventions — David Olive of Bluefield College, William Fleming of Palm Beach Atlantic University, Samuel Oliver of East Texas Baptist University and Lee Royce of Mississippi College – signed the letter as well.

    Regarding the abortion-causing drugs covered under the contraceptive mandate, “emergency contraception,” also known as the “morning-after” pill, is basically a heavy dose of birth control pills. While the normally two-step process can restrict ovulation in a woman or prevent fertilization, it also can block implantation of the early embryo in the uterine wall. The latter effect would cause an abortion, pro-life advocates point out. An IUD also can prevent implantation.

    “Ella,” though approved as “emergency contraception” by the FDA in 2010 and labeled a “morning-after” pill by supporters, is more closely related to the abortion drug RU 486, according to pro-life organizations. Like RU 486, it blocks production of the hormone progesterone, destroying the placenta that provides nutrition to the embryo and causing the tiny, unborn child’s death, the American Association of Pro-life Obstetricians and Gynecologists says. “Ella” also can block implantation.

    During a public comment period provided by HHS, Land protested in a Sept. 30 submission the use of taxpayer funds in support of abortion drugs and the violations of religious liberty and freedom of conscience in the guidelines.

    They must destroy the power of the church, so the take over is complete. They believe all voters are sheeple that can be herded to their will, or they will raise the dead on election day and cram their agenda down on us. It has been predicted in the Book of Daniel 11:20 -45 and in Revelations. Get right with God.

    And as far as Catholic and Jews voting for Obama. I have spoken to those of both faiths. And where I live the majority WILL NOT, vote for Obama this go round.

  • Kendra

    And yet Muslims will be allowed to opt out of obamacare…. I’m disgusted with this man.

  • Patty

    I hear that Obama doesn’t endorse any faith. Nor does he speak of his beliefs. THAT IS WHAT THE MEDIA IS WANTING ALL OF US TO BELIEVE.

    Really? Why doesn’t he? ever wonder about that? First two years, nothing, and for months never went to Church on Sunday. Left Wright’s church, why, POLITICAL CAREER.

    President Obama is “ramping up his ‘God talk’ for the re-election campaign, in late 2011. Campaign season in full swing for Politician in Chief.

    His strategy to connect with evangelical voters may not work for Obama.

    We will see if America remembers the past history or the liberal media keep covering things up.

  • Stuart

    Right on StrangernFiction #10
    It is time that the churches said NO!!!!! What is the government going to do? Well the first thing would be to sue and attempt to take church property. What of it?
    It is long past time for the evangelical churches to stand with Luther and declare: “heir steih ich, ich cann nicht tun anders”. Translation here I stand I can not do otherwise.
    Also from Luther’s Ein Feste Berg: ( A Mighty Fortress)
    Take they our life, goods, fame, child, and wife, let these all be gone, they yet have nothing won. The Kingdom ours remaineth.

    In case you are curious I am not a religious person but I recognize oppression when I see it. It is time to stand against it.

    So, abort the baby is in Obama care. We will pay for it and they will ignore the people again.

    Liberalism is a front for Socialist Communism in America. Part of their plan is to make socially acceptable things that they know is unacceptable to most all Christian’s, no matter what the name of your faith is, i.e. Catholic, etc.. We must fight against such things and expose the fact that they are not people’s “right” to be able to obtain contraseption and abortions and not pay for it. That is one of the tenates of liberalism is along with a right comes not having to be victimized by your choice, like having to pay for your own choices of what you want to do, like buy contraseption and abortions if you worked at a church or such and were Christian.

    Liberalism started out selecting the most proliferate race of people in the country and used their culture as a means to force the rest of society to accept their misbehavior as what should be made a “normal” behavior. Since the 60’s when “free love” as what most all teens wanted and as they stepped out into the world to pursue this free love, whether they found it or not wasn’t the point. What was the point was that it wasn’t nearly impossible to find it outside of prostitutes like it was back in the day. Now it was acceptable for anyone in any situation to take advantage of the social norm and that was you could finally screw anyone you wanted and no one would look down on you if you were caught. It was because you had rights now, and not having to live with the guilt of doing something that was “taboo” anymore. Just think of having that weight lifted from your shoulders. Now you could do as you please because after all we were just like what was acceptable in the Black race as our role models of proper behavior.

    Liberalism is a disease that rots society out from the inside. First they make moral the immoral. Then they force society to accept immoral behavior as the norm by getting the courts to pass opinion on issues that are close to home with conservatives and Christian’s. Now, they have gained so much power in the legislature and the courts that no one can oppose them in these or any other issue.

    How can we get our right to have a moral society again? Remove the tools liberals use to get their way, and that is the judges in these local, state, and Federal circut courts by getting passed law in your state to be able to empeach these judges so the liberals won’t have anyone on their side who can put pressure on legislator’s from the bench because we will replace liberal judges with conservative ones who will pass judgement in favor of morality rather than perversion. And then we’ll be able to put pressure on our legislator’s to put the Constitutional law of the land back in control of people’s behavior, instead of allowing behavior like that of the Black race to be made the norm rather than everyone else’s that this nation used to be guided by.

    I totally agree. When morons issue lawless decrees infringing on our liberties and exercise of our own free will, then we have an obligation to pay them no mind. If everyone just ignores their stupid rules, tehn they have to back off.

    Today, in a huge victory for women’s health

    The artificial hormones in contraceptives increase women’s risk of hypertension, stroke, fatal blood cots, probably some stuff I’m forgetting. But hey, now that’s all paid for by people who don’ t use them! Some victory.

  • retire05

    Recently the 5th Circut Court of Appeals upheld the Texas law passed last year requiring sonigrams prior to any abortion, overturning the lower court decision that the law violated the rights of privacy. The higher court said that the law is consistant with the “Patient’s Right to Information” law.

    Too bad we didn’t have a candidate that supported that kind of legislation.

    Oh, wait we did.

  • Blue Hen

    The leadership of the American Catholic Church created this mess. They shilled for obama, and criticized people who spoke against him. One vatician publication (briefly) tried floating the notion that Obama wasn’t truly pro-abortion. The local diocesian newspaper attacked the tea Party twice directly and ran repeated puff pieces for Joe Biden and Obama. And now he turned on them. Many of the people opposed this, but the leadership failed the Church again.

  • Fafnir the dragoon

    Very amusing. The Baptists were perfectly in favor of contraception, and of abortion rights as well, up to the point the leadership realized they could accumulate a lot of wealth and power by pushing reactionary BS to the masses. Then, rather quickly, they changed their minds, and their sheep-like followers turned on a dime and realized that they had been at war with Eastasia Estrogen all along.

    At the point any Protestant has a principled, theologically sound reason for opposing contraception I will be astonished. The Catholics, on the other hand, have a principled if logically unsound reason for opposing contraception, and therefor deserve at least a bit of credit and respect on this issue.

    The Catholic Church will simply stop offering health benefits to employees. That’s the whole point of this. Obama assured his supporters that he would pass a bill that would force the insurance companies out of business would force businesses to drop their coverage, and would destroy the Church-run health care systems. End result, uncovered, underserved sick people will clamor for single payer. This is just part of the same effort as the Church will have to simply stop providing benefits to workers. Does Obama think none of have convictions?

    Muslims are exempt from obamacare. They have been from the start.

    The reason is that muslims supposedly consider buying insurance equal to gambling and their religion frowns on that.

    So, the muzzie in the WH let all his muzzie friends off the hook!

  • kay

    good. the muslim call in the morning will include handing out condoms to the men and birth control to the women. in public schools the muslims won’t be able to carve out an exemption like they did for ‘footbaths’. I’m sorry about the catholic church. I’m catholic. But not enough catholics are being catholic so I’m being anti-religious and that means non-pro-muslim. Thank GOD. I want muslim institutions to HAVE to cover free contraception and I want the ACLU to force them to do so.

    To #36 Blue Hen and all else,

    The truth is is that the Catholic Church never supported Obama after he declared his severe
    Pro choice opinion. The Vatican spoke out against this growing movement more so than any other institution. This is why most of the protesters who showed up at Notre Dame when they handed Mr Obama his free education were Catholics, Bishops, and Priests including myself. U of M is now held in higher regard ironically enough. But this doesn’t change the truth of the matter that this is one of the most disgusting decades I’ve ever seen. We kill our children, rape our rights and liberties, abandon our elderly, and forsake our soldiers who die for our protection. I don’t believe Obama is any sort of Antichrist, but his is absolutely horribly misguided and flat out wrong. More than a tyrant he’s a murderer. All the men, women, and even children who have lost their life at various times for the righteous cause of liberty have been spat on. The worst part of it is that Obama is only a little responsible; we hold most of the guilt. He wouldn’t have been able, also government in general, to do the things he has- if we would have first educated ourselves and then struck back. Now it has come to this and atleast thankfully now we’re awake, but our constitution is on it’s deathbed if we don’t act in equal measure to those who desecrate it. Now is the time to rise up and “make” them hear your voice. No one candidate is going to show up in shining armor as your hero- the truth of it is is that “you” are your own hero. Take action and take to the street- above all take action to the powers that be. Don’t wait for your savior, ” Help cones to those that first help themselves”. May God bless all of us and have mercy on the souls of the unborn and the rest of us no matter our faith.

    Wake-up Call: Islamists Insert Themselves into Healthcare Debate

    [What is remarkable and at issue here, is certainly not the right of MPAC’s
    leadership to have a personal opinion on health care policy. But what is
    most telling is how these Islamist organizations have a way of finding a
    way to worm themselves and their Islamization agenda into every political
    issue related to government under the name of Islam and Muslims. As is
    typical of Islamists, they exploit Muslim faith based organizations and their
    often unsuspecting supporters and members for their own very specific
    domestic and foreign policy agenda of the day. This agenda clearly and
    malignantly crosses the line of mosque and state in an aim to impose the
    Islamization of every topic related to the domain of government and public
    policy upon the Muslim community and ultimately the greater American
    community.

Muslims aren’t the issue, big government is. Washington under the back to back Bush/Obama years has spun completely outta control with the formation of the D of HS, the Patriot Act, Obamacare, the NDAA 2012, and SOPA/PIPA. Thankfully the later was shot down thanks to Mozilla, Wikipedia, Anonymous, and the 13 million people who took action and protested. Now we need to get the real enemy in our sights with the same tenacity and shut down the mass corruption in Washington. If Obama is re-elected I firmly believe our rights and liberties as we knew them will be lost. Time to take action.

    Mandated Contraception, Sterilization: Caesar Demands Church Violate Conscience

    Demands Church Violate Conscience

    By Deacon Keith Fournier
    1/20/2012
    Catholic Online (www.catholic.org)

    To translate this Edict, the American Caesar has spoken and given the Catholic Church 13 months to comply with its unjust regulation or face punitive consequences.

    “Obama administration has drawn an unprecedented line in the sand. The Catholic bishops are committed to working with our fellow Americans to reform the law and change this unjust regulation. We will continue to study all the implications of this troubling decision. In effect, the president is saying we have a year to figure out how to violate our consciences.To force American citizens to choose between violating their consciences and forgoing their healthcare is literally unconscionable.” (Cardinal Designate Dolan, Abp of New York, President, USCCB)

    WASHINGTON,DC (Catholic Online) – The moment that President Obama nominated Governor Kathleen Sebelius to be the Secretary of Health and Human Services he sent the signal of where he would lead this nation. Sadly, many people did not see the signs, including some Catholics.

    Of course, anyone who heard former Presidential candidate Obama utter his “that’s above my pay grade” answer to Reverend Rick Warren’s question as to “when a baby gets human rights” – either had their head in the sand – or was no friend of children in the womb themselves.

    This President does not respect the fundamental Human Right to Life, period. Sorry Doug Kmiec and all the others who were snowed by his sophistry, the truth is now very clear and I sincerely hope you join in the necessary resistance to this unjust administration.

    The Secretary’s own Archbishop, in May of 2008, asked then Governor Sebelius to refrain from receiving Holy Communion because of her “30-year history of advocating and acting in support of legalized abortion”. He noted that she was engaging in what the Catholic Catechism defines as “scandal”, when “one’s action leads someone else to sin. Scandal is an attitude or behavior which leads another to do evil.” (CCC#2284)

  • Patty

    President Obama has selected Catholics to serve in his administration who openly defy their own Church. Now, as if that wasn’t bad enough, all of the subterfuge and sophistry which has surrounded his promise to honor religious liberty and respect freedom of conscience in the implementation of his “Affordable care Act” has been unmasked.

  • el polacko

    if the catholics are following their church’s teaching and not using contraceptives then there’s nothing to be covered by their insurance. however, most catholics do not accept the idea that all sex must produce babies. the problem the organization has is with their followers, not their insurance company.

  • http://Conrev.blogspot.com Fiebs

    On the contrary most Catholics may have sex for reasons other than procreation, whats wrong with that, but that doesn’t mean we support contraception. Most of us don’t. The Catholic Church advocates and practices Natural Family Planning. However, every dysfunctional family has those who are severely misled like pelosi and sibelius. They misrepresent the majority.

    Oral contraceptives increase risk of breast cancer >250% in young women (the particularly dangerous triple-negative cancer. This should be on every warning labels! Also prostate cancer has been linked to oral contraceptives that contain non-biodegradable artificial hormone released to the environment.

    May be the birth control is a personal decision, but it is becoming my financial responsibility to subsidize more than doubling the cancer risk in women. I oppose it!!!!
