Just pointing out the obvious:
Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius is breaking it to us rather gently, but unavoidably she just told us that the federal government took over the determination of what kind of insurance a Catholic hospital can legally purchase.Today, virtually all American women use contraception at some point in their lives. And we have a large body of medical evidence showing it has significant benefits for their health, as well as the health of their children. But birth control can also be quite expensive, costing an average of $600 a year, which puts it out of reach for many women whose health plans don't cover it.
The public health case for making sure insurance covers contraception is clear. But we also recognize that many religious organizations have deeply held beliefs opposing the use of birth control.
Move along. Nothing to see here. It simply isn't possible that this is the type of thing opponents of the bill had in mind when they called it a "government takeover." Is it?
