Why some 'contraceptives' demanded by Obamacare are actually 'abortifacients'

Defenders of the Obamacare mandate requiring individuals and organizations to violate their consciences by providing “contraceptives” demanded by Obamacare and the HHS mandate argue that they are not actually “abortifacients.” So, therefore, no one should have any moral objections because a human life is not being destroyed. Here is a response to this bogus argument.... Read more »

'It's not my boss's business'

Pro-choice groups are holding a “Not My Boss’s Business” rally (see below) to support the Obamacare (the ironically named Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act or ACA for those of you who still think that it’s a rousing success) edict that companies must pay for contraception and certain abortion procedures despite their religious (constitutionally protected...
