"Medicine" to prevent the disease of conception; but is conception actually a disease and is a child who is conceived an illness or a disease that needs eradication?
rchbishop Chaput blasts administration's 'insulting' mandate revision! “We cannot afford to be fooled – yet again – by evasive and misleading allusions to the administration’s alleged 'flexibility' on such issues. The HHS mandate needs to be rescinded.” READ ALL ABOUT IT BY PRESSING HERE!
The Catholic Church will not cave in and be made to provide artificial contraception for those Catholics and others who work for the Church under insurance policies that the Church provides for health care.
However, we recognize that some Catholics and most others who are not Catholic have no moral qualms in using artificial birth control or sterilization or abortifacients.
The Church cannot enable these immoral choices for Catholics who know how seriously wrong it is to use these, then knowing how wrong it is, plan and use these with full consent of the will. For the Church to do so, (provide the means by which one could go condemn themselves to eternal hell) would be complicity in such a immoral choice, an accomplice if you will.
However, the government and Barack Obama could avoid this constitutional crisis that he is creating by simply using tax payer monies and allocating to any Pharmacy in the country the ability to give out to those who are prescribed them, these artificial forms of contraception free of charge as well as paying clinics and hospitals directly from tax payer funds to make free sterilization and other "preventive" health care options. While the Church would abhor that the taxes Catholics pay could be used for these purposes, at least it is the government doing it and not making the Church do it through insurance policies the Church herself provides.
All of us have to pay taxes and we can't tell the government how to use these taxes except through lobbying and the vote. Isn't this the most sane solution to this horrible debacle President Obama is causing? Your comments!
Now what I would like to see under universal health care is preventative care for eyes and ears and free eye and ear exams and glasses, contacts, corrective surgery, hearing aids and corrective surgery for implants that help in hearing. Is this covered under Obamacare????????
