Birth-control mandate a step to abortion coverage?

02/15/12 – - Last week, Obama announced that instead of requiring employers to cover contraception, insurance policies would be required to provide free birth-control coverage in separate agreements with the workers who want it. Even though conservatives do not see it as a compromise at all, and even though serious constitutional questions about the policy still remain, the administration refuses to budge any further.

Matt Bowman of the Alliance Defense Fund (ADF) points out that exemptions are being granted to various organizations, including unions, but religious ones still face a mandate.

Matt Bowman“It seems like the only people who don’t get some type of special treatment under ObamaCare are groups that want to exercise their God-given first freedom of religious liberty,” Bowman notes.

And he suggests that imposing contraception and sterilization coverage on people of faith could be a stepping stone to mandating coverage for abortion.

“The idea imposed by the Obama administration here against religious liberty is that pregnancy is a disease,” the attorney says. “There is no principle distinction between that and requiring not only these other practices, but surgical abortion at any stage because once you can violate our God-given first freedom of religious liberty, there’s nothing a government cannot do.”
He adds that Obama’s alleged accommodation still violates the Constitution and federal law, so “ADF is prepared to defend Christians to resist this attack.”
