That's Michael Walsh writing today in the New York Post. He's talking about people like Sr. Carol Keehan and Sean Michael Winters, and all those liberal Catholics who signed on in support of Obama and Obamacare.
"O'Care Truth Sinks In."
The first ideological tentacles of ObamaCare began snaking their way into the pocketbooks of private insurers and the consciences of religious Americans when, on Monday, the Department of Health and Human Services issued new guidelines requiring insurers to provide free birth control -- including 'morning-after' abortion pills -- in the name of 'women’s health.'
'These historic guidelines are based on science and existing literature and will help ensure women get the preventive health benefits they need,' said HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius. Insurers will have to provide the services without deductibles, co-pays or any other charges.
In other words, the federal government -- choosing sides in the culture war -- now considers 'unplanned' pregnancy to be a preventable disease.
Not the most fundamental mystery of human existence. Not the fullest expression of love between a man and a woman. Not a deeply personal human activity that lies at the heart of religious moral teaching.
A disease -- and cause for a new government giveaway.....
This is just another case where the critics in the debate over ratifying ObamaCare are being proved right -- with the defenders exposed as liars or dupes.
The 'antis' warned that 'universal health care' would inevitably leave the feds ruling on a host of charged moral issues; the 'pros' denied it -- though many doubtless saw it as a feature, not a bug."
Winters, Keehan, are complaining now, but it's too late. From the moment Obamacare came on the scene the subhead of this blog has read: "Obamacare = Publicly funded abortion. If you support the Health Plan you are supporting publicly funded abortion." Those people supported Obamacare and they share responsibuility for the perfectly predictable results.
