Healthcare Plan Likely to Include Free Contraception

Another pertinent reason for Catholics to oppose the Democrats and their health care bill at the polls tomorrow:

WASHINGTON (AP) – Fifty years after the pill, another birth control revolution may be on the horizon: free contraception for women in the U.S., thanks to the new health care law.

That could start a shift toward more reliable – and expensive – forms of birth control that are gaining acceptance in other developed countries.

As Nancy Pelosi said,

“Well, the family planning services reduce cost. They reduce cost. The states are in terrible fiscal budget crises now and part of what we do for children’s health, education and some of those elements are to help the states meet their financial needs. One of those – one of the initiatives you mentioned, the contraception, will reduce costs to the states and to the federal government.”

It’s a cost cutting measure. It’s also a grave sin! But if you’re Nancy Pelosi, or most of the rest of the American Catholic population, you say, “Who cares! We need to have this!”

    Best of all worlds: heaven on Earth!!

    Free abortion. Free pill.

    More fruits of the compendium of peace and justice . . .

    Next, Catholic Health Service hospitals will be required by law to murder unborn babies and hand out free contraceptives.

    Thanks, pro-life dems!

    Note to Morning’s Minion:

    That most private insurance companies cover contraception does not invalidate this point, for the expressed purpose of the Democratic health-care legislation is to provide health care insurance to those who do not already have it, meaning contraception will become more widely accessible than it is right now. Furthermore, support for contraception will receive the sanction of the law which has the moral weight of the majority behind it, and the law will teach people what they deserve and what they ought to do. For these reasons, it is still right to speak of a substantial effect of the health care law on the availability and practice of artificial contraception.

    Is this the same Nancy Pelosi who kissed Pope Benedict’s ring?

    I can’t stand her.

    With respect to Nancy Pelosi: I’m stunned at the silence of the Church’s leaders; I think she deserves to be publicly excommunicated for scandal. She was reminded privately of the imperative of obeying the Church and has manifestly ignored that instruction, continuing to do great harm to the culture of life. It is far-past the time for her Bishop to act and prevent the further loss of Catholic truth in the American Public Square.

    My opinion of Pelosi is summed up in the phrase “Lying Worthless Political Hack”.

    I wonder how much it burned her lips?
