We’ve recently heard from Bishop Stika telling us why the HHS mandate that employers/insurance companies include contraceptive and abortion-inducing drugs in their employees health coverage should be opposed by Catholics. This matter has been widely debated in the media and as Catholics we often feel as though we’re in the minority for taking a stand against this attack on our Catholic faith and on religious liberty as a whole.
There is yet another reason why this mandate is morally unacceptable: it is anti-woman in its very nature. Take a few minutes to watch the following video published by the Catholic Information Center in which Gloria Purvis explains why this is the case. This is yet another reason why we, as Catholics, must stand together against this unjust law.
