What kind of free government imposes a mandate on insurance companies to provide free birth control? What kind of society allows this? The founding fathers made it clear that only a moral and virtuous people would be able to maintain a free society under a republican form of government.
“The only foundation of a free Constitution is pure Virtue, and if this cannot be inspired into our People in a greater Measure, than they have it now, they may change their Rulers and the forms of Government, but they will not obtain a lasting liberty.”
This is a direct result of our churches failing to lead our nation in the Judeo/Christian religious tenets by currying favor with a government instead of God.
We have no government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion . . . Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.
We have to discern the difference between government and country before we lose our freedom and faith. If we are standing up to hold our government accountable for its actions, can we do not less with our churches?
U.S. health insurance companies must offer women free birth control and other preventive health care services under Obama administration rules released on Monday, a historic decision supported by family planning groups and opposed by conservative groups.
The rules from the Health and Human Services Department are part of the nation’s healthcare overhaul and largely follow recommendations from an advisory group released last month.
The U.S. Institute of Medicine (IOM) report, commissioned by the Obama administration, recommended that all U.S.-approved birth control methods — including the “morning-after pill,” taken shortly after intercourse to stop a pregnancy — be added to the list of preventive health services.
The recommendation faced opposition from conservative and religious groups that balked at using taxpayer money to cover birth control, especially the “morning-after pill.”
