Pro-Life Group Blasts Obama’s Catholic Contraception Compromise
Written by 

obama-smileOne anti-abortion pro-life group, Americans United for Life, is not very happy with President Obama’s compromise on the controversial conception-healthcare issue. President Barack Obama today announced the compromise today.

 The White House issued the finally statement today:

President Obama today announced a compromise in the dispute over whether to require full contraception insurance coverage for female employees at religiously affiliated institutions.

Under the new plan, religiously affiliated universities and hospitals will not be forced to offer contraception coverage to their employees. Insurers will be required, however, to offer complete coverage free of charge to any women who work at such institutions.

Female employees at churches themselves will have no guarantee of any contraception coverage -- a continuation of current law.

Dr. Charmaine Yoest, President and CEO of the Americans United for Life has responded by issuing its own statement:

: "It is clear that Americans need Congress to step in to protect their rights of conscience under the law and to end their forced participation in President Obama's abortion-inducing drug mandate.

"The preventive healthcare guidelines include ella, a drug that ends unborn life. This is not necessary health care for women. 

"Once again, the Obama Administration is taking a step in the wrong direction. This new pronouncement turns Roe v. Wade on its head. In Roe, the courts said that abortion was a privacy right. In this health care dictate, the Obama administration announces plans to invade the privacy of women by requiring insurance companies to inquire about their private choices and offer free drugs. And the administration announces that insurance companies will take on this burden at no cost to anyone. 

"And it is incredibly naive to believe that this will not cost either women or their employers. Insurance companies will surely take the projected expenses of these efforts into account when pricing coverage. 

"It is time for permanent protections for people's rights of conscience, as well as the rejection of the preventive care plan at HHS that include the abortion-inducing drug mandate." 

With whom do yuo agree? The President or Dr. Yoest?  Tell us below...

It must be nice when you can get the rules written just for you.

There must come a time when even the most disinterested, blasé, apolitical person living has to look up from whatever else occupies his interest and say, “Wait a damned minute. This just ain’t right and we’re not gonna do it.”
