Action Alert: Stop the Birth Control Mandate

On August 3, 2011 the Department of Health and Human Services decided to mandate coverage of birth control, surgical sterilization, and abortifacients in all private heathcare plans.

Are you a tax payer? Do you support Birth Control, Abortifacients (a drug or agent that causes abortion), and surgical sterilization? Well you’ll be providing these services for millions of Americana’s to take advantage of at any time. Despite religious or moral beliefs you’re paying for it, and patients do not even have a co-pay for these services.


 Church Teaching:

Contraception and Sterilization:
Catechism of the Catholic Church: “[E]very action which, whether in anticipation of the conjugal act, or in its accomplishment, or in the development of its natural consequences, proposes, whether as an end or as a means, to render procreation impossible is intrinsically evil” (CCC 2370).

“Legitimate intentions on the part of the spouses do not justify recourse to morally unacceptable means . . . for example, direct sterilization or contraception” (CCC 2399).

Abortifacient:
Catechism of the Catholic Church paragraph 2271:

Since the first century the Church has affirmed the moral evil of every procured abortion. This teaching has not changed and remains unchangeable. Direct abortion, that is to say, abortion willed either as an end or a means, is gravely contrary to the moral law:
You shall not kill the embryo by abortion and shall not cause the newborn to perish.75
God, the Lord of life, has entrusted to men the noble mission of safeguarding life, and men must carry it out in a manner worthy of themselves. Life must be protected with the utmost care from the moment of conception: abortion and infanticide are abominable crimes.76

Now please take a few moments to defend the consciences of millions of Americans who do not support abortifaceints, contraception, and sterilization. It will only take a few minutes:

  1. Sign the petition to President Obama’s Administration and Secretary Sebelius to stop the birth control mandate.
  2. Health and Human Services is accepting comments on the issue at hand. Please send an email through NCHLA’s action center in opposition to this mandate.
  3. Post the link to this article: http://timmerie.com/2011/09/action-alert-stop-birth-control-mandate.html on Facebook, Twitter, and other social networking sites so that others can take action as well. 
For the Dignity of the born and unborn,
