Now, I'll take my stand as a conservative and address the issue at the very core that matters, but so few seem to be willing to touch.
Why does the government have the authority to mandate insurance companies provide care outside of the contract signed by the member?
Quite a few policies are provided by employers with "standardized" coverage policies already.
Therefore forcing all people into a universal program of some sort.
Rates are already going sky high, and the "choices" may be dwindling.
Much of the mandates have been/will be applied by "orders" from HHS, who were given the authorities by the legislation.
Providing contraception makes sense in any and all cases - unless you place your beliefs before logic
Could it be that the broader issue is being addressed by the suits brought by the states to stop the individual mandates? I don't know what more can be done in that area.
Is it possible that the Bishops put more emphasis on their role as Church representatives, and not enough on their role as citizens? After all, they largely supported Obamacare.

If one looks at it like this:
You are being forced to pay for someone else's sexual escapades that what contraception mandate is.
Forget the fact if you knock boots its your responsibility not other people besides what the hell is planned parenthood for?
Not good enough the insurance racket works likes this people who aren't using it paying for those who do then of course there is the moraility issue but then again where are those liberals who use to scream to get government the hell out of the bedroom?
