Planned Parenthood is trying to change the subject. So if birth control is free of charge, then what is the issue. If employers opt out of the mandate for religious or moral reasons, why doesn’t Planned Parenthood pay for it then?
The issue should be about killing (aka aborting) babies in the womb. The issue won’t go away. We are not going to stop fighting for life. Jesus challenges us to persevere.
“Planned Parenthood is marshalling women to #Fight4BirthControl, because apparently allowing those with moral objections to opt-out of the Obamacare contraception mandate is disastrous for women’s health. I wonder if the women using this hashtag understand how the contraception mandate works. Or how insurance works. Or birth control itself, for that matter.
“To recap, the Obama administration’s contraception mandate directed employers to provide insurance coverage for contraception, including embryocidal methods, at no direct cost to employees. Several lawsuits challenged the mandate for violating the religious freedom of religious employers who object to providing birth control, including methods that may result in the loss of an embryo. So the Trump administration released a rule that allows any employer—publicly traded, nonprofit, or otherwise—to opt out of the mandate for religious or moral reasons.”
