A group of nearly 200 Catholic employers filed a new lawsuit in Oklahoma against the federal government Wednesday, hoping to stop parts of the federal health care law that force them to provide insurance that covers contraceptives.
The recently formed Catholic Benefits Association, which includes archdioceses, an insurance company and a nursing home, takes issue with a compromise in the Affordable Health Care Act offered by the Obama administration that attempted to create a buffer for religiously affiliated hospitals, universities and social service groups that oppose birth control. The law requires insurers or the health plan's outside administrator to pay for birth control coverage and creates a way to reimburse them.
The association says that still forces Roman Catholic employers to violate church teachings.
"Religious liberty encompasses more than the right to worship; it includes the right to freely exercise religion, to allow religion to inform not merely our private beliefs, but also our public actions," the Rev. Paul S. Coakley, archbishop of Oklahoma City.In other words, it isn't enough for the Catholic Church to prohibit Catholic women from using birth control, the evil men who control the Catholic Church in the United States will do everything in their power, including using the US justice system to try to prevent ALL women from access to birth control.
This is the evil organization that seeks to impose the Catholic Church's misogynist views on Americans - http://stage.lifeaffirmingcare.com/en/faq.html. They must be opposed every step of the way.
