I have been hearing this a lot from some women, and other supporters of Obama. You hear this view on political commercials, and other venues as the
Obama camp try to get the support of women making them believe that it is their right to FORCE others to agree with their views on abortion, and
contraceptions, and to FORCE people to pay all women to have contraceptives, and abortions.
This is one "message" that the Obama administration, and Obama himself have been trying to use to get the vote from women. But since when has it
become a right for ANYONE to force the views, and pay in favor of the opinion of some people unto others?
Who gives ANYONE the right to FORCE others to accept their views, and even to pay for such views?
Part of the Obamacare bill forces regular people, and employers to pay for contraceptives, and abortions of women who want free contraceptives, and
Is the Obama administration forcing people to pay for abortion-inducing drugs?
By James D. Agresti
February 7, 2012
The 2010 Affordable Care Act (a.k.a. Obamacare) gives presidential appointees at least 40 regulatory powers that have the force of law.
Kathleen Sebelius, President Obama’s Secretary of Health and Human Services, recently exercised one of these powers by mandating
that “most new and renewed health plans” are required to cover without cost sharing “all
FDA-approved forms of contraception” by August 1st of this year.
This mandate exempts “certain religious organizations” but not others “who, based on
religious beliefs, do not currently provide contraceptive coverage in their insurance plan.” This means that faith-based
universities, hospitals, and charities are not exempt from the mandate, but if they are nonprofits, they are “provided an additional
year, until August 1, 2013, to comply with the new law.”
Secretary Sebelius claims in a USA Today op-ed that this mandate will make contraception “free for most Americans with
insurance,” but this use of the word “free” is misleading. Someone has to pay, and when government
requires insurers to provide a certain benefit, all of the insured are forced to pay for it through their insurance premiums.
A lot of people who are pro-Obama insist it is their right, and the right of every woman to be provided with contraceptives, and abortions, but since
when has it become a right of some people to force everyone else to do their bidding?...
There are some people, and organizations who have money and have been able to fight this, but what about the millions of Americans who do not have the
means to fight this because they don't have the money, and they do not agree with this invented right?
People like me can't afford to pay for a lawyer to fight for OUR RIGHTS, yet the government is using tax payer's money to FORCE EVERY AMERICAN to pay
for the misguided views, and opinions of some Americans.
The Obama camp have even used the excuse that "only religious people are trying to fight this", but not only is this not true, but also since when it
is not okay to have religious freedom in the United States?...
Have the pro-choice crowd, and the Obama administration forgotten the First Amendment to our Bill of Rights?...
Amendment 1 - Freedom of Religion, Press, Expression
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the
freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of
There are even some Catholics who have fallen for this misguided belief that this is a right, when it isn't.
Pro-Choice Hypocrisy: You Must Pay for My Abortion, Birth Control
It is an irony that the promoters of “reproductive choice” insist on coercing everyone else into paying for other people’s abortions and sexual
Frances Kissling, founder of the misnamed “Catholics for Choice,” will appear opposite me on Monday at the University of Wisconsin Marathon County
in Wausau to argue in favor of a government mandate that forces employers to violate their religious beliefs just because they operate in America.
The Obama administration is enforcing the mandate as one of the first of many coercive orders issued from Obamacare, this one including early
abortion methods in health plans. Or rather, the mandate is being enforced except where it has been directly confronted in court.
The only court to rule on whether this Obamacare mandate violates religious freedom issued an injunction against it in July. The injunction protects a
Catholic family business I represent through Alliance Defending Freedom.
To people familiar with the rhetoric of abortion advocates, it is not surprising that they clamor for the government to force Americans to pay
for abortions as well as for drugs and devices that contracept or cause early embryo destruction. What is disturbing is that they advocate this attack
on freedom under the rubric of “choice” and “conscience.” That is a
bait-and-switch tactic as old as Roe v. Wade.
Roe demonstrated a similar double standard. It insisted that newly invented “rights” would never be used to
force people against their consciences to facilitate abortion and contraception. But then “pro-choice” advocates
began lobbying to force taxpayers to fund abortion and other practices that fill Planned Parenthood’s pocketbook.
Not only that, but this is a message being used by the Obama camp, and Obama himself to try to gather more votes from women.
Some people might say "but it is only a dollar", but the amount of money that everyone is being forced to pay for the contraceptive of other women,
and even their abortions is no excuse to accept this attack against the freedom of millions of Americans.
What if the government came up with a mandate to FORCE every American, and every employer to pay for, for example, the religious practices of some
Americans? Would the "pro-choice", and "pro-Obama camp" still view this as a "right"?...
I would like to hear why there are people who think it is their right to force Americans to accept and pay for their views on contraceptives and
And since when, and why are women falling for this misguided belief from the pro-crowd and pro-Obama crowd, to be convinced and accept these views as
an excuse to gather more votes for Obama?
