LifeSiteNews.com reports: ”The period for Americans to comment on the proposed regulation – which would force employers to provide contraception, sterilization, and abortifacient drugs to all employees with no co-pay – ended yesterday. The Sunlight Foundation notes that the controversial provision has generated ‘more comments than any other regulatory proposal on any subject government-wide.’ A coalition of supporters, including Planned Parenthood and NARAL Pro-Choice America, says its groups delivered nearly 350,000 messages of support for the mandate.”
Now that the period for public comment is over, we can expect the finalized policy to be revealed soon. The HHS mandate remains one of the most unpopular ever passed, and will no doubt continue to be challenged in court. Americans don’t want to be forced to violate their religious beliefs and certainly the 1st Amendment – among others – ensures we should not be forced to violate our convictions. We will continue to oppose this terrible mandate and its life-ending policies. Click here for original article.
