Tuesday, January 31, 2012

Ed from Larchmont -- the right of free exercise of religion doesn't include an employer refusing health coverage for employees seeking legal medical procedures. Your right to swing your arm stops short at my nose. Planned Parenthood doesn't have the funds to "buy and sell" the President of the United States, and a majority of Americans and even Catholics want birth control to be legal and available. Find somewhere else to flog your agenda.

Obama was not aggressive against Republicans when he could have been - he shouldn't have allowed them to control the House. And he is too concessionary to Wall Street. AND he's worse than George W. Bush regarding foreign policy, thinking himself judge, jury and executioner.

Last night on The World Over they considered why the president would alienate 1/3 of voters (Catholics, and others) by not allowing a conscience exemption in his health care bill. The only explanation is that he is bought and sold by Planned Parenthood, and thinks he can push their agenda through. In the choice between loyalty to Planned Parenthood and abortion, and being reelected, he will choose Planned Parenthood. (He pushed compliance with the contraception, etc. law until just after the election).

This is a clear overstepping of the First Amendment's right of free exercise of religion.
