Video: Unconstitutional, Illegal Contraception Mandate Strikes No Balance Respecting Religious Liberty

A good discussion on Fox News discussion of  Obama’s mandate that the Catholic Church pay for contraception, sterilization, and abortion-causing drugs. Fox News Legal Analyst, Peter Johnson Jr. responded to Jay Carney’s claim that the administration thinks it struck an appropriate balance in respecting religious beliefs, by exclaiming,  there is no balance!


Michelle Malkin: First, they came for the Catholics:

White House press secretary Jay Carney blithely denied on Tuesday that “there are any constitutional rights issues” involved in the brewing battle. Yet, the Shut Up and Hand Out Abortion Pills order undermines a unanimous Supreme Court ruling issued just last week upholding a religious employer’s right to determine whom to hire and fire. And two private colleges have filed federal suits against the government to overturn the unconstitutional abortion coverage decree.

Hannah Smith, senior counsel at the non-profit law firm, the Becket Fund, which is representing the schools boiled it down for Bloomberg News: “This is not really about access to contraception. The mandate is about forcing these religious groups to pay for it against their beliefs.”

  1. Before Malkins post came out, those very words were going through my mind over what Obama is doing to Catholics, “First they came for the Catholics.” This MUST NOT be allowed to stand!


  2. It will be either be defeated in the courts, legislatively, or the Obama administration will stand down as it dawns on them that this was a politically suicidal act. Or…a Repub will win in November and will repeal not only the mandate but the whole damn health care law.
