David Ripley: Obama Keeps Digging

February 11th, 2012 by Halli

Idaho Chooses Life

Under the guise of extending a “compromise”, Obama has deepened the moral and constitutional problems instigated by his insistence that women deserve free birth control pills, abortifacients and sterilizations.
Rather than force Christian employers to directly finance these morally objectionable drugs, Obama will now force us all to pay for them through higher insurance premiums. Now it is not just church-sponsored organizations which will be compromised, but virtually every American who will be required to finance Obama’s bizarre notion that “contraceptives” are a birth right for any female.

Under his announced “compromise”, insurance companies will now be required to offer “free” contraceptives and abortifacients to any female covered by one of their policies.

But not even Obama can repeal fundamental economic laws. There is no such thing as a “free” drug. Someone will pay. And it won’t be insurance company executives. The costs will simply be buried into the general price of coverage. A little bookkeeping voodoo – and – problem solved. Thus, the Catholic Church and other Christian employers have actually gained nothing except a veneer of respectability, should they choose to accept it.

The grand question is whether the Catholic Bishops will be driven by moral principle or political expediency as they determine a response next week. We should be in prayer for them.

But don’t expect insurance companies to raise much of a fuss over this new edict. The risks are too high. They are now virtual prisoners of the Obama Administration; government-sponsored corporations akin to Fannie Mae. Their management’s loss of soul will cost taxpayers dearly in coming years.
