Action urged on contraception, sterilization mandate

Catholic World News - September 02, 2011

The National Committee for a Human Life Amendment (NCHLA)--which works closely with the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops on abortion-related legislation--is urging pro-life Americans to make public comments on the Department of Health and Human Services’ decision to require all private health insurance plans to cover contraception and sterilization. The department’s public comment period expires on September 30.

“Pregnancy is not a disease, and drugs and surgeries to prevent it are not basic health care that the government should require all Americans to purchase,” the NCHLA noted as it called upon the department to “allow all organizations and individuals to offer, sponsor, and obtain health coverage that does not violate their moral and religious convictions.”
