This is the generation that will abolish abortion

Update: President Obama’s FALSE accommodation on the birth control mandate – it is actually worse.

To start off I have to show you something that should always alarm us: Planned Parenthood likes his so-called “accommodation” – http://www.lifenews.com/2012/02/10/planned-parenthood-pro-abortion-groups-back-revised-mandate/

We have to understand what the actual battle is here: it is about our constitutional and our conscience rights.  This is not just about whether someone is for or against the pill; it is more about the government forcing people to pay for someone else’s birth control.

As of yesterday all companies would be required to pay for contraception and abortion-causing drugs to be included in their health plans.  Some religious organizations would have been given one year to “adapt” to this policy (not Stand True or Priests for Life; we would not even qualify for that one year to adapt).

What the Obama administration actually just did in their “reversal” or “accommodation” they announced today is to say that now it is the insurance company who is required to pay for contraception and abortion-causing drugs and offer them for free to all women.  The organizations that are opposed to paying for them will have no choice in the matter; the insurance companies they use will still cover these drugs.

Religious liberty is thrown out the window, conscience is trampled and the rights of the insurance companies are destroyed. Freedom does not seem to be a word that the Obama administration comprehends.

Think about this: the pro-abortion side has always cried for Christians to “keep your rosaries off my ovaries”, yet they want Churches and religious organizations to fund their sex lives. Do you see the irony in this?

Imagine if the President mandated that all companies pay for every employee’s Bible, religious supplies and gas money to get to church. It is ludicrous to think we can force anyone to pay for this, so why is it ok to force companies to fund its employees’ bedroom activities?

Those who call themselves pro-choice should be up in arms; they should be screaming at the top of their lungs about this violation of choice. The problem is that they are NOT pro-choice; they are pro-abortion and they can care less about the choices or beliefs of Christians.

Whether you believe in contraception or not, you must be outraged at what the Obama administration is doing. The rights and liberties of all Christians and religious people are at stake right now and we must stand against this injustice.

“You don’t adapt to injustice; you oppose it.” Fr Frank Pavone

Once again we see the beast that is the abortion industry and its champion, President Obama, trying to strong-arm Christians and pro-lifers.  Last week they acted like the mob or a school-yard bully when they tried to destroy the Susan G Komen Foundation over 1/6 of 1/1000 of Planned Parenthood’s budget.

We must be more resolved to stand up, be a voice and shine the light of truth in these dark times.  We must stand united together as we usher in a culture of life.  We must break the chains of apathy and let our roar be heard.

I, for one, would sooner be handcuffed and taken to jail before I allow any insurance coverage that included abortion-causing drugs to be given to any employee.

    Wouldn’t this type of violation pave the way for no religious exceptions for things even like required vaccinations? In PA we can opt out of the vaccinations required for school for ” (b) Religious exemption. Children need not be immunized if the parent, guardian or emancipated child objects in writing to the immunization on religious grounds or on the basis of a strong moral or ethical conviction similar to a religious belief.” http://www.pacode.com/secure/data/028/chapter23/s23.84.html How about conscientious objectors? I think it can go way past abortion, this is only the beginning. We’ve lost so much freedom already, this has to stop.

    “Think about this: the pro-abortion side has always cried for Christians to “keep your rosaries off my ovaries”, yet they want Churches and religious organizations to fund their sex lives. Do you see the irony in this?”

    YES YES YES!! This is so ridiculously true!

    I had a person recently tell me that “the freedom to practice your own religion doesn’t mean that religion gets the right to tell the government not to do something that is in the best interest of the people just because it conflicts with their views.”

    I responded by saying (with an oh heck no!) that “Our forefathers created this part of the first amendment so that the government doesn’t (wouldn’t and shouldn’t) have the ability to tell a religion what they should and should not do… even if they disagree, a religious institution should have the right to act on their religious beliefs (look at the Amish for an example). “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof”… emphasis on the latter.”

    If this is allowed then what’s next is the realm of religious freedom? I’m afraid to know……….

      If you have to put emphasis on the latter, you’re ignoring half of it.

      Oh, except the latter’s never been questioned, actually. The former gets threatened a lot.
      (Note: I don’t necessarily agree with this rule–and probably don’t, though I am ill-informed–but it has nothing to do with the expression of religious beliefs.)

    I started to write a response, but when it got to 4 pages, I figured no one wanted to see it here. The highlight of it, I thought, needed some preparation, but here it is in its blunt glory:

    Has anyone yet realized that liberals are more likely to use abortion than conservatives, and maybe we should let them. It’ll reduce the numbers of liberals until the conservatives can take back the country!

    Of course, this is the way liberals think, not conservatives, and certainly not Christians. The motivation to think this way is a callous disregard for human life and the belief that your neighbor is worth less than you are. As a former liberal, I can assure you that this is a common thread underlying all the claims of altruism and higher purpose in the Liberal Agenda: if you aren’t a die-hard liberal, you’re polluting the planet and need to be eliminated.

      …Except it was totally you that said that.

      Jesus is a liberal, sweetie. And He stood up to religious authorities who used that power to threaten or harm others.

    Now we don’t have to provide birth control… we just have to pay for it. Definitely a religious persecution going on here.

    Also… a great Catholic defense of their teaching on birth control:
