At least three Catholic bishops have said they will not comply with the mandate the Obama administration put in place recently in Obamacare that will force religious employers to pay for birth control, contraception and drugs that may cause abortions in their health care plans.This is a violation of the First Amendment on its face — having the federal government intrude on religious practices.
Who gave the HHS the authority to mandate coverage for contraceptive and abortive devices? Why do health insurance plans need to cover what is clearly an elective process?
This marks the end of religious freedoms in this country. Unless the Church wins.
