Obama Orders Catholics to Act Against Their Faith; Bishops Call it ‘Unconscionable’

January 23, 2012 10:09

The Obama administration on Friday finalized a regulation that orders all Americans—unless they work directly at a church–to purchase government-approved health insurance plans that cover sterilizations and all FDA-approved contraceptives including those that cause abortions. – CNSNews.com

The regulation further requires that health-insurance plans must provide sterilizations, contraceptives and abortifacients without any fees or co-pay.

The regulation, issued as part of the initial implementation of Obamacare, requires Catholics to act against their faith–which teaches that sterilization, artificial contraception and abortion violate the natural law and that Catholics cannot be involved in them.

In a statement, the nation’s Roman Catholic bishops immediately condemned the administration’s decision to move forward with the regulation as “literally unconscionable.”

The regulation will go into effect on Aug. 1.
