It's not just the Catholics

snip- Would you go to jail--or even close down your hospitals and schools--rather than violate your religious faith, a Republican lawmaker asked religious leaders at a House hearing on Thursday. The answer, given under oath, was unanimous: They will disobey. The Rev. Dr. Matthew C. Harrison, president of the Lutheran Church's Missouri Synod, said, "Yes, I would, clearly" rather go to jail. "I'd like to be in his cell," said Dr. Ben Mitchell, a philosophy professor at Union University. ("We'll try to work that out," Rep. Gowdy said, prompting laughter.) Rabbi Meir Soloveichik of Yeshiva University told the House Oversight and Government Affairs Committee that freedom of conscience and of religion "is first and most sacred to our country." And finally, Dr. Craig Mitchell, an ethics professor at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, told Rep. Gowdy, "This is not the kind of thing that we can afford to play with. This is essential to our country." http://cnsnews.com/news/article/catholic-lutheran-baptist-and-jewish-leaders-swear-disobedience-hhs-...

Re: It's not just the Catholics

Hey 3020, when obama was elected time or newsweek had "we're all socialists now". Well today protestants and jews stand and say "we're all catholics now" . Obama bit off more than he can chew on this one, this principle actually has little to contracection.

Insurance

The business model is based on proffit. Minimize your risks. You will "give" something away if it will lower your risk of a much higher payout in the future.

So I am going to price my product according to a cost-benefit. I am going to charge you more if you do not cover contraception. It is going to cost me more for one pregnancy than for 100-years of birth control.

 

Interesting there was not one woman called to testify. Guess they shouldn't worry their pretty lil' heads about this stuff.

This isn't about contraception. This is about freedom.

Re: Insurance

Let me see if I have this correct. You work for someone who provides all or part of you family insurance and you and your wife both smoke and eat too much. You have been sick several times in the past few years.your boss calls you in and tells you to quit smoking and lose some weight OR you will have to pay most of your insurance premiums so you........ ( fill in the blank ). Keep in mind that it is about freedom.
