    So, if I go to a Catholic hospital, I have to receive substandard care because of their beliefs? If your doctor is a JW, should he be free to refuse to prescribe a blood transfusion for you?
    That is correct, the reason for this is because our nation was founded on the idea that individuals should be granted religious freedom regardless of the religion or beliefs they espouse.

    Mine is permanent. Care to answer the question I asked, or try to show why the analogy is inapt?

    $11 a month which begs the question, why did Obama mandate that insurance companies not only cover BC but cover it free of charge.
    To prevent insurance companies from charging for a service that actually saves them money, using the power of the monoploy they have for any given worker.

    So, every time you go to a doctor, you need to quiz the doctor on their religious beliefs and how dedicated they are to those beliefs in order to make sure you get proper care, and that's religious freedom?

    How about this for religious freedom: if you can't in good conscience fulfill all the duties of a licensed professional, don't pursue that license?

    I dont know what to tell you. I didnt write the bill of rights, the point is that we live in a country in which you are free to follow any religion. Thats a basic founding principle. To attack the catholic church while they provide healthcare to the disadvantaged is hardly a beneficial plan in my opinion. A waiver would be far more efficient, especially since it would be likely that the catholic church would just shutdown their hospitals if they are forced to perform or aid in birth control or abortions.

    How about this for freedom: as a customer, find a professional who will provide what you desire. "Proper care" is subjective.

    That's what the regulators want. Conformity and "equality" above common sense. Seriously, what's next...banning donations to food shelters in NYC just because the food might not completely conform to a government-determined "balanced diet"?

    I love this comment. That's exactly how I feel about it, and wouldn't be surprised in the slightest if the government stepped into regulating charity.

    It was a subtle reference to this article which is being re-hashed all over the internets today (originally from March of this year)
