Obama and Sebelius think they know what is best for everyone. They also think they have the authority to tell insurance companies what to do.

This is indeed good news. Good thread CWMom.

quote:

Obamacare's contraception mandate as applied to religious non-profit organizations, but also sent a strong signal that federal courts were losing patience with President Obama's many stitches of executive power.

Previous courts had ruled against President Obama's contraception mandate as applied to for-profit entities (see Sebelius v Hobby Lobby), but this was the first court to hold that participating in Obama's scheme to provide free birth control is a substantial burden on the free practice of religion (specifically the Catholic Archdiocese of New York and its affiliate organizations).

The contraception mandate "directly compels plaintiffs, through the threat of onerous penalties, to undertake actions that their religion forbids," Cogan wrote. "There is no way that a court can, or should, determine that a coerced violation of conscience is of insufficient quantum to merit constitutional protection."

Cogan forcefully rejected three key Obama defenses of the mandate. First, on the government's claim that there was a compelling interest in uniform enforcement of the contraception mandate, Cogan wrote:

Gonna have to read this opinion. The excerpts alone indicate a major beatdown.

I don't think this is the first judge on this. And from what I read it will show precedent to the other states.

I didn't either. Time lines with this program are a bit blurred.

re: Judge calls Obamacare 'totally ineffective,' strikes down contraception mandate
I don't get the push for this at all. A woman has planned parenthood and abortion clinics up the wazoo. Why do they want abortion and BC on demand in any hospital?

I just got a notice in the mail yesterday and I am pissed. As it is we are paying for everyone and their mothers BC and abortions but they just had to force Christian hospitals to do so as well?

Am I missing something?
