As a staunch advocate for the unborn and an outspoken activist against the harm that contraceptives can do to women, I find it appalling that the Obama Administration would force my employer, Priests for Life, to be complicit in offering contraceptives, directly or indirectly, to its employees.
That is why I have decided to join forces with Fr. Frank Pavone, Janet Morana, and Priests for Life to challenge the Department of Health and Human Services and stop the implementation of the “contraceptive services mandate” which would force Priests for Life to provide insurance plans that include coverage for, or access to, contraception, sterilization, abortifacients, and related education and counseling.
Because such insurance plans would provide the very harmful agents are we at Priests for Life and I personally are fighting against every single day, I must oppose the HHS Mandate.
Please review the PowerPoint presentation and video to educate the public about the harmful effects of using contraceptives. To think that I or the company I work for would have anything to do with anyone being harmed from the use of contraceptives is something that I am not willing to accept.
There is also another related aspect of contraceptive use that many don’t understand.
As I said in the press release Priests for Life sent out, “[t]he Obama administration’s insistence on free contraception is an affront to civil rights.
“There are racist and eugenic roots to this thinking. Efforts to control the population always target minority and lower-income groups. We will not sit still and allow this to happen.”
