USCCB action alert urges public comments on HHS mandate

Catholic World News - March 25, 2013

The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops is urging Catholics to make public comments on the Obama administration’s new “accommodation” on the HHS mandate. Comments are due to the Department of Health and Human Services by April 8.

“Under the new health care law, the Obama administration is requiring most health plans to cover ‘preventive services for women,’ including items that many citizens find objectionable for moral and religious reasons: sterilization, FDA-approved birth control (such as the IUD, Depo-Provera, ‘morning-after’ pills, and the abortion-inducing drug Ella), and ‘education and counseling’ to promote these to all ‘women of reproductive capacity,’ including dependent female children,” the USCCB action alert notes.

The action alert offers a link to the web site of the National Committee for a Human Life Amendment, which offers suggested language for the public comments. “

    The Bishops bred and fed the monster that is trying to destroy the Church. These same bishops never listened to complaints from the Faithful, so why would they think the Obama administration would listen to our complaints now?
