GOP Boxes itself in on Obama Contraception Compromise

..........

February 12, 2012 by Code Blue Politics

2/12/12 The Catholic Health Association, the Association of Jesuit Colleges and Universities and Catholic Charities USA all support President Obama’s compromise on requiring contraception coverage. Yet Republicans appear hell-bent on opposing Obama’s plan to ensure that women receive health care coverage for contraception. Buoyed by the U.S. Catholic Conference of Bishops’ continued opposition, the GOP plans to introduce legislation allowing any employer to deny contraception coverage in their health insurance plans. With most Catholic organizations on board with Obama’s plan, the GOP is on course to become the outspokenly anti-contraception party. Not a good place to be in a country where nearly every woman, including 98% of Catholic women has used birth control.
