What’s wrong with Obama’s birth control mandate in 12 concise points

comment   | print |

If anyone is wondering what the row in the United States over a White House policy enforcing health insurance coverage of contraceptives, potentially abortifacient "emergency contraception", and sterilisation is all about -- have a look at the following two posts on the US Catholic Bishops Conference website:

Six Things Everyone Should Know About the HHS Mandate

Six More Things Everyone Should Know About the HHS Mandate

These two six-point summaries make it very clear why the Catholic bishops and other religious leaders, plus some discerning secular writers and others, reject the policy as well as promises of "accomodating" some of their objections, somewhere down the line.

Thanks to Matthew Mehan for pointing this out.
