Yesterday in St Louis, the unthinkable happened. President Barack Obama publicly boasted about how he is flaunting Archbishop Dolan of New York and the American Catholic bishops. President Obama's new regulation via the Department of Health and Human Services will REQUIRE all private health insurance plans in the US to cover sterilizations, all FDA-approved contraceptions, and all FDA-approved abortifacients.
Our President boasted about how he is moving forward despite the Catholic Church's insistence that this is an “unprecedented attack on religious liberty.”
Somone in the crowd yelled out: "Darn right!"
The President responded: "Darn tooting!"
I've said it once and I'll say it a thousand more times. Why are insurance companies forced to pay for contraception and abortion and why are they not forced to cover the BIRTHS of our American children!!! America consists of people and we are making the mistake of Europe by subsidizing our decline. It's maddening that insurance companies hardly cover the costs of birth.
The fact is that those who actually bear children and bear the burden of the cost for raising them will be the ones funding the future well-fare-state Shangri-La that these enemies of the Church propose.
There are now "two Americas" emerging in competition with each other. Saint Michael the Archangel, protect us in battle.
