Dear President Obama,
I am appalled at your Obamacare mandate that forced religious employers to pay for health insurance coverage that includes birth control and drugs like Plan B, the morning after pill, and ella that can cause abortions.
Today, you revised your mandate in a way that is just as offensive.
Your revised mandate will have religious employers refer women to their insurance company for coverage that still violates their moral and religious beliefs. Under this plan, every insurance company will be obligated to provide coverage of abortion-causing drugs at no cost.
Essentially, religious groups will still be mandated to offer plans that cover both birth control and the ella abortion drug - only now insurance companies will offer them at no charge.
This ObamaCare rule still tramples on Americans’ First Amendment right to freedom of religion. It’s a fig leaf, not a compromise. Whether they are affiliated with a church or not, employers will still be forced to pay an insurance company for coverage that includes abortion-inducing drug.
I oppose this revised pro-abortion mandate and urge you to overturn it immediately.
There is no compromise on our freedom! This administration is saying Church groups do not have to pay for immoral activities -- insurance companies will PAY! But Church will still have to pay into these insurance plans. A phony segregation of funds. WE WILL NOT COMPLY!
I am appalled at your decision to infringe upon my religious rights!
