As Nancy “the good Catholic” Pelosi once said when referring to ObamaCare, “We have to pass the bill, so you can see what’s in it.”

By Thomas Cloud  February 2, 2012

  1. That’s a lie. There’s no requirement to fund abortion. You right-wingers are pathological liars.

    • Many Catholics consider “the morning after pill” to be abortion if the egg has already been fertilized.
      Try reading the article below for more information—before you call someone a pathological liar.

      In August of 2011 Health and Human Services Secretary, Kathleen Sebelius, announced that as a part of the Affordable Care Act, starting in January of 2013, new health plans will be required to offer all FDA approved forms of birth control without a co-pay. The FDA includes the morning-after pill (also known as Plan B) as birth control.

      This new requirement was put into place based on a recommendation by the Institute of Medicine which found that prevention of unintended pregnancies is essential for the psychological, emotional and physical health of women.

      While the new regulation does include a provision for religious institutions to opt out of offering birth control coverage, some are arguing that the exemption is too narrow. Currently the provision only covers organizations that primarily exist to promote religious teaching, and mainly employ and serve people with the same religious beliefs.

      Two colleges, Belmont Abbey College in North Carolina and Colorado Christian University, have already filed lawsuits stating that this new mandate violates their religious beliefs. Belmont Abbey College’s objections are broadly against being “forced to pay for contraception, sterilization, abortion, and related education and counseling,” while Colorado Christian University’s objections are specific to paying for “abortifacient drugs and related education and counseling.” This references the drug commonly known as “Plan B.”

      While supporters of the new birth-control mandate see a broadening of the religious exemption as threatening access to preventive health services to millions of women, the Catholic Church, in a letter to the administration, characterized the mandate, as it stands now, as“an unprecedented attack on religious liberty.”

  2. In this day and age, I think we are ALL malinformed if we rely solely on the MSM or the government for our information. Almost all journalism is opinion-based today; bias also takes the form of what news stories to publicize and which ones do not get reported.
