Justice slows the abortion mandate

See also

The deal is that the Affordable Care Law seeks to include abortion coverage. Participants in “Obamacare” under this law are supposed to be able to cover abortion procedures as part of their insurance. The law further stipulates that qualified healthcare providers must include the coverage. That requirements gets complicated because some individuals and their providers are aligned with religions that prohibit abortions.

Many people believe that abortions should not be a first resort. In fact, many believe that contraception and safe sex practices are where being responsible begins. Administering and advocating contraception becomes controversial as these practices may conflict with some religious beliefs.

Separation between church and state would have it that government laws and regulations be most comprehensive and that individuals have the right to choose, opting or out in using the coverage.

Forcing religious affiliated healthcare providers to perform services in which they don’t believe is something to be worked out through reasonable implementation. It may be that people will have to decide for themselves which institutions are best for them, as it should be a freedom of choice decision, don’t you think?

Justice delays O-Care birth control mandate
By Rachel Huggins

Justice Sonia Sotomayor blocked a birth control mandate in ObamaCare that would have forced some religion-affiliated organizations to provide employee health insurance that includes contraceptive coverage.

Sotomayor acted on a request from an organization of Catholic nuns in Denver that requested an emergency stay, according to the Associated Press.

The government is "temporarily enjoined from enforcing against applicants the contraceptive coverage requirements imposed by the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act," Sotomayor said in the order.”
