Mitch McConnell – Deny, Deny, Deny (Birth Control, that is)

Via Raw Story:

According to the National Women’s Law Center, Blunt’s amendment(PDF) actually goes a lot farther than contraception, creating a loophole that allows any employer to exclude any health service.

“For example, any corporation whose CEO opposes contraception based on his ‘moral convictions’ could deny all coverage of contraception or any other service to the company’s employees,” the center observed. “Even more disturbing, a CEO’s view of ‘morality’ could potentially include concern for the cost of a particular benefit. Such broad, undefined refusals (without any protections for the insured) would result in millions of individuals losing vital health service coverage.”

I don’t understand why we are still having this conversation…

  1. We’re having the conversation because all the president did last Friday was a slight of hand magic trick. It did nothing to address the objection of the catholic bishops. And should we not be surprised when politicians will hop on this thing for political purposes?

    1. No, I’m not surprised… sadden.

      When the accommodation came down, I told my wife that it was a slight of hand, exact words, because the insurance companies will charge Catholics institutions a higher rate now…

      This conversation only serves to ignore the real issues of the day… and makes everyone feel better
