From CNS News:

Yesterday, a group of freshmen congressmen said that a regulation issued under Obamacare by Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius has taken freedom of religion away from Americans.

The regulation that requires health plans to offer sterilizations, contraceptives, and abortifacients free of charge became effective yesterday.

It has been unanimously denounced by the Catholic bishops of the United States as "unjust and illegal mandate" that forces Catholic individuals, business owners and institutions to act against the teachings of their faith.

Republican Billy Long of Missouri says "We're still home of the brave, but we're not the land of the free anymore,"

John Boehner and other Republicans say they don't agree with the program but will fund it.

Really?

One Republican said, "It's outrageous that this administration believes it's within their power to force people to violate their right of religion if it interferes with this administration's agenda. It should disturb people of all faiths, or for that matter people of no faith at all, that President Obama has such a low opinion of the First Amendment that he would trample on these rights."

So many are just thinking--- "look at all this cool free stuff we are getting."

Nothing is free. You'll pay for it now or later.

That's my point of view, what's yours?

2016 explains obama's communist goals and destruction of America. It is time to impeach this anti-Colonialist, anti-America, anti-Capitalist.

As is always the case, health care is no exception, someone must pay for the mandated services. My family works in education, and it is the same way too. The mandates drive up the costs for someone, whether the consumer paying the premiums or the companies providing the insurance, or the service providers themselves. Since every business needs to pay for its equipment and employees, because people don't typically work for free, the cost falls on the consumer. Mandates always drive up costs.

Right after this historic signing of mass destruction of America's health laws there was a large meal which obama chowed down on some DOG and in puppy's. By his own admission he consumed dog meat!
Where is the HSUS?

wooooooster, are you on drugs? If not, take some!!! You need medication, a padded cell, and to be removed from inflicting your rubbish on this and any other internet site...again, KETK, wake up and investigate what kind of sick people you're allowing on your site!!

TAKE WOOOOOOSTER OFF THIS AND ANY OTHER KETK SITE...HE/SHE HAS ABUSED THE PRIVILEGE OF POSTING ON WHAT SHOULD BE A SITE FOR CIVIL DISCOURSE...INSTEAD, KETK IS ALLOWING THIS KIND OF GARBAGE TO RULE...MODERATOR, DO YOUR JOB...BAN THIS POSTER, AND CALL FOR CIVIL DIALOGUE WITH THE THREAT THAT ANYONE WHO DOES NOT FOLLOW STRICT RULES OF CIVILITY WILL, IN THE FUTURE, BE REMOVED.

I do hope KETK allows me to call this poster exactly what he is...woooster is a disgrace as an American...nothing short of an example of a demented and dangerous right-of-right wing ultra-conservative...if only someone on KETK had the guts to ban ths purely evil rhetoric, but any moderator of this site is a spineless and gutless wonder who will not do the right thing.

As is too often the case you are factually wrong. The truth is that birth control and abortion services lower overall costs and so, no, it won't cost you money but will, in fact, save money. It would help if you'd take the time to study and verify the factual basis of various political issues instead of simply parroting what you've heard. That's what a journalist is supposed to do.
