Law professors decry HHS contraceptive mandate

Catholic World News - September 28, 2011

Three law professors--Helen Alvaré, Gerard Bradley, and O. Carter Snead--write the Obama administration’s contraception and sterilization coverage mandate “threatens our nation’s healthcare by attacking the consciences of our nation’s healthcare providers.”

“Recent history demonstrates that many religious employers will exit from the marketplace rather than abandon their mission to offer faithful witness in the course of providing service,” they write. “Those behind the new regulations must be willing to accept this effect, and perhaps even desire it. This is revolutionary. Never before in American history has any administration—state or federal—been so willing to force religious institutions out of business.”

    This is not an accident. It is all part of replacing EVERYTHING with big government control.

    That would be the same ObamaCare legislation the USCCB supported until just before the final vote, correct?
