Ask Yourself, Did This Issue In Any Way Contribute To The Outcome Of Last Night’s Primary?
Laugh or cry? You decide – theWSJ reports:
The White House is looking for a way to address the concerns of religious leaders upset by President Barack Obama’s decision to require religious employers to cover contraceptives in employee health plans, according to people familiar with the discussions.
How is he going to address these concerns? By doubling down.
Aides to Mr. Obama met with women’s groups Tuesday at the White House to shore up support for the initial decision.
“There are ways to, I think, help resolve this issue that ensures that we provide that important preventive service, that health care coverage to all women…in a way that also tries to allay some of these concerns,” White House press secretary Jay Carney said Tuesday.
Exactly how are they going to resolve this issue, Jay, since the feminists insist that birth control is an “important preventative service”, EOL? They plan to resolve this issue, I am sure, by demonizing the opposition.
Women’s groups were among a number of health organizations that attended a meeting with administration officials Tuesday, according to participants. The officials asked women’s groups, who have supported Mr. Obama’s move, to step up their defense of the decision, according to a person familiar with the meeting. Several of the meeting’s attendees said they weren’t expecting significant changes to the rules.
So, what Planned Parenthood did do Komen? Expect to see it happen to Catholics and others who oppose the White House decision.
Never to tally in carrying out their marching orders, you can file this under “That Was Quick” : “Why the Birth-Control Mandate Makes Sense, by Jeanne Shaheen, Barbara Boxer, and Patty Murray.
It was a historic victory for women’s health when the Obama administration changed the law to require private health plans to provide preventive services including breast exams, HIV screening and contraception for free. This new policy will help millions of women get the affordable care they need.
Now, sadly, there is an aggressive and misleading campaign to deny this benefit to women. It is being waged in the name of religious liberty. But the real forces behind it are the same ones that sought to shut down the federal government last year over funding for women’s health care. They are the same forces that just tried to pressure the Susan G. Komen Foundation into cutting off funding to Planned Parenthood for breast-cancer screenings. Once again, they are trying to force their politics on women’s personal health-care decisions.
Unbelievable. That last sentence is a masterwork of doublespeak.
Obama and his fellow socialist democrats know better than you, or I, and certainly better than those stupid Catholics. Contraceptives are a right, and we will all be the better for it if we just shut up and accept.
