Planned Parenthood Says Christians Should be Forced to Fund Abortions

Choice. It’s a word that Planned Parenthood loves to use when promoting the killing of unborn babies in abortions.

But now, the abortion chain is abandoning its favorite word in an underhanded attempt to force Christians to pay for birth control, including methods that may cause abortions, in their employee health plans.

Crystal Strait, president of Planned Parenthood Affiliates of California, recently wrote an opinion piece for The Sacramento Bee to argue their case.

Strait blasted President Donald Trump’s administration for rolling back President Barack Obama’s birth control mandate. The onerous requirement forced groups like the nuns of Little Sisters of the Poor and the religious owners of Hobby Lobby to challenge the mandate to the U.S. Supreme Court, or face crippling fines.

Trump provided relief from the Obamacare mandate by granting wider exceptions to religious groups, but several state attorneys general are challenging the decision. Strait praised pro-abortion California Attorney General Xavier Becerra for being one of them.

“We believe that denying access to contraception is both illegal and immoral. Thanks to the ACA’s birth control benefit, 55 million women gained access to contraception,” she wrote. . . .

The new Trump administration rules give wider exceptions to religious objectors who have been forced to pay for contraception, including methods that may cause abortions, under the Obamacare mandate. The Trump administration says the new rules are motivated by “our desire to bring to a close the more than five years of litigation” over the pro-abortion mandate. These include cases by the Little Sister of the Poor, Hobby Lobby and countless other religious organizations and businesses.

In other words, the Trump administration is giving religious individuals the choice to opt-out – a choice that the abortion industry does not want them to have. . . . Read More
