VP Biden Was Wrong – ObamaCare HHS Mandate Collides with Religious Freedom
Despite political rhetoric to the contrary, ObamaCare will for the first time require employers and individuals to directly fund abortion-inducing drugs, sterilization and contraception. This mandate collides with religious freedom and the rights of conscience.
Vice President Joe Biden’s assessment of ObamaCare’s impact on religious liberties was inaccurate at best and misleading at worst. During the Vice Presidential debate, Biden said, “[L]et me make it absolutely clear. No religious institution—Catholic or otherwise, including Catholic social services, Georgetown hospital, Mercy hospital, any hospital—none has to either refer for contraception, none has to pay for contraception, none has to be a vehicle to get contraception in any insurance policy they provide. That is a fact. That is a fact.”
This is not a fact. The ObamaCare mandate requires nearly every religious organization and business owner to provide contraception, sterilization, and abortion-inducing drugs, despite the fact that this will violate their sincerely held religious beliefs.
Yesterday on Fox News, Mat Staver talked to Shannon Bream about the case: “We asked the Supreme Court to allow us to go back to the court of appeals and address the issues that the Supreme Court has not addressed—the constitutionality of the employer mandate and also the free exercise of religion that applies both to individuals and to employers….That is a collision with Liberty University’s sincerely held religious beliefs.”
