I am just trying to explain how I see your stand for the rights of religious institutions, mainly catholic institutions, as a threat to my and every
other person's insurance coverage of birth control...
the constitutional rights are aimed more towards individuals than it is the rights of institutions.
obamacare mandates that insurance providers treat birth control as a preventive measure and thus entitled to be covered 100%. all insurance
so, well, just allowing a few religious institutions to be exempt this would not solve anything, since it would force all the believers to have
insurance coverage that covered birth control 100%!!!
and well carry this on to those non-catholic religious institutions, and well, you are also forcing johova witnesses to buy insurance that covers
blood transfusions, which is against their religion, which well, they have had to suck it up and accept the fact that if they want insurance, they
have to pitch in to support that practice that they don't believe in....and well....
it just doesn't mesh...does it??
I think that if you position would be accepted, the legal precedent could be set to disassemble health insurance as we know it today even!!!
since, we all have beliefs, we all find things offensive that our money is pooled into and then used to pay for, and well...
why should catholic institutions be held of higher esteem than the followers of the religjon??
why should the catholic institutions and followers be held of higher esteem than the followers of the jahova witness religion??
and, why should any of them be held of higher esteem than me who find it offensive to use my taxdollars to pay for women to have baby after baby,
after baby, which they cannot support, really aren't trying to support??
