Is'nt that the bottom line here?
Why dont Pelosi and Obama come clean on their intentions with these hospitals?
These people believe abortion is a form of contraception.
If the Catholic hospitals accept contraception in their insurance plans, they will be required to perform abortions at these hospitals.
Catholics can pull out of these hospitals right now if that's what Pelosi and Obama want.
Be honest you two.
I know what's up your sleeve.
That one year time frame is a gimmick to put off the final decision until after the election while trying to pull the liberal Catholic vote who are in the dark of your true intentions with these Catholic hospitals.
If you libs can run the hospitals better-say so and the Catholics will pull out and you can buy these hospitals and kill all the unborn kids you want to kill so your doctor friends can make a lot of money.
Abortion is big business.
Be honest with America on this issue and quit being sneaky.
Obama wants Catholics and other conservatives to adopt the morality of the left. This by force if necessary. His first week in office he released funds needed for international abortion support through the WHO. Now he wants Catholics to pay for abortions and for birth control to which they object.
I get a kick out of his shows. The other day, he had all these Catholic priest on. Of course, he hand picked them. And I never knew there were so many black priest. Must have really worked at that.
why would all catholics want to "drive over" Obama? Most Catholics use bc and support the President on this. Oh wait...the economy is rebounding, and this silly contraceptive battle is all you have? hahahahahaha
According to the federal government, Catholic hospitals qualify as charities. As such, they are NOT "businesses". Similarly, a company which makes and sells baptismal fonts for a profit is not a "church".
An insurance company which deliberately prices its policies below break-even for adherants to a given religion and at or below break-even for all others, makes up the difference between its income and payments via voluntary donations from adherants to that religion, and is run by an organization staffed by the heierarchy of that religion, could possibly qualify as a church, especially if it held religious meetings open to the general public during working hours. The debate within the IRS would be interesting, to say the least.
