Women are being duped yet again

President Obama, as the drive by media outlets put it, "caved" to religious pressure in regards to birth control, abortion, sterilization and birth control inducing abortion methods this past week by making a compromise. The compromise that President Obama offered was to exempt religious institutions and faith based organizations from having to pay for these services; instead the services will have to offered by insurance companies at "no additional cost to the employee or hassle." Does President Obama believe that the American citizenry is stupid?

All President Obama did was shift the mandate from one group to another. The original mandate violates the 1st Amendment while the second mandate also violates the Constitution. Right now insurance is not sold across state lines thus the Federal Government cannot regulate it. Regulation is left up to the States. That being said certain aspect of insurance law has crept in and States have lost certain rights because of it. Namely via Medicare and Medicaid. When will Americans wake up and realize that more and more of our freedoms are being stripped away by those in Washington D.C.

We can start earlier but here is a short list of things:

1. Patriot Act - wiretapping
2. TARP - Temporarily nationalized the banks
3. TARP II - Temporarily nationalized GM and Chrysler
4. Health Care Act - Individual Mandate
5. Fifth Amendment - Assassination of America citizen tied to Al Qaeda
6. Health Care Act - Mandate of birth control for free

I know I am missing a couple. Our government has been working to erode our freedoms. Where is the outrage? I forgot we cannot express outrage now because one may interpret that as attacking someone based on the undercurrent of race.

Archbishop Dolan wrote, ""We note that today's proposal continues to involve needless government intrusion in the internal governance of religious institutions, and to threaten government coercion of religious people and groups to violate their most deeply held convictions....The only complete solution to this religious liberty problem is... to rescind the mandate of these objectionable services" in response to the recent changes. That is just the half of it. Take the blatant disregard for the US Constitution and combine it with this comment: "Reducing unintended pregnancies is a well-established public health goal. They are associated with a variety of health issues for both mother and child from maternal depression to birth defects. There are also economic consequences, particularly for teen mothers who are less likely to graduate from high school" states US Department of Health and Human Services.

If the goal is to truly reduce unintended pregnancies, albeit no method is 100% unless one abstains, ask yourself a few questions:

1. Will the family unit be mandated sterilization after a certain family size is reached?
2. If I am on welfare - will by welfare distribution be effected? or Will I have forced to be sterilized?

Women groups see this as freedom and liberation. It is a ruse. The fight for free contraception is to pacify women and lull you into thinking that power is being given. Once the government is able to prove a legit health concern over the number of babies you produce they will mandate it. When will people wake up and see that Government is not the answer to all. The role of government is for the basic protection of our rights set up in the US Constitution and the power there in. Not to be all for all.
