One would think after the right's disaster with Komen that the GOP would have known better than to side against women on this trumped up issue.

Fox poll said 2-1. Wow.

The morally bankrupt catholic church is lecturing us on what is � right�. They are acting outraged over this issue. Maybe they should clean their own house before they tell us what to do.

Yes, truly terrible that the Catholics are siding with the liberty to choose the insurance you want, instead of with forcing us to buy insurance we don't want.

Those darn,evil Catholics, wanting us to be free to choose the lives we want to live, pay for what we want to have! How dare they!!

If we accept DCs power to overturn our own beliefs and force us inot submission into the church of DC, what next? In the name of women, forcing Muslim centers to allow women into their prayers? I mean, really, the govt knows best what is good for us, right? Forcing those who support abortion to pay for anti-abortion counseling for women?

Try to remember, folks, the powerhunger of govt is insatiable. We have shredded respect for our Constitution and the Bill of Rights, but individual liberty is the name of the game that we are tossing out.

This has nothing to do with insurance, Perspective. Perhaps you should become familiar with the issue.

"Those darn,evil Catholics, wanting us to be free to choose the lives we want to live, pay for what we want to have! How dare they!!"
Once again, become familiar with the issue before you get all worked up.

"If we accept DCs power to overturn our own beliefs and force us inot submission into the church of DC, what next? "
No one is forcing any woman to use contraceptives. No one is forcing anyone to abandon their religious beliefs.

"We have shredded respect for our Constitution and the Bill of Rights, but individual liberty is the name of the game that we are tossing out."
No one is tossing out individual liberties--you are just parroting the bogus claims of the Republicans and the "moral authorities" in the Catholic Church.
