Wait a minute… I thought Obamacare didn’t include any federal funding of abortion. Then I read this story from the Heritage Foundation and found the latest news on how wrong we all were to believe that lie.
But it gets worse:
Late last week, the Becket Fund for Religious Liberty announced it is suing the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) on behalf of Belmont Abbey over a new mandate that would force the college to provide insurance plans for students and employees that cover procedures and prescriptions the college finds morally objectionable.
So it’s not just that the government is covering the cost of abortion, it is now forcing employers to provide these “services” through their offered insurance plans, even if doing so violates their religious principles.
Fulfilling a provision of Obamacare that requires coverage of “preventive services,” HHS adopted a rule in August that mandates nearly all insurance companies cover contraception and sterilization—without cost to the insured.
This will provide no small moral dilemma for many businesses, universities, and non-profit organizations. Whether you believe the government should use taxpayer money to fund elective abortions is one thing, but can we all not agree that forcing an organization to violate its conscience by providing free access to it is wrong?
We are facing dark days in America. Citizens, wake up! Look into events on your own, without trusting the word of a reporter, or even a President!
