Something has been puzzling me. I’m not sure if the people involved mean to be condescending or if they really and truly believe what they are saying. If it is the latter…I’m not sure how to take it.
This involves the Affordable Health Care Act and Birth Control (including sterilization) in relation to religious organizations. I just want to see if I’ve got this right.
Religious Health Insurers are exempt from providing Birth Control since it is against their beliefs. Okay I get that. Fine. I was a little annoyed when I found out that even if you don’t have religious affiliations, but your insurance does that you are still subject to their exemption.
But now those Religious Health Insurers do not want women they insure to have access to Birth Control from another insurer.
So I’m left to puzzle.
Is it really that The Religious Health Insurers doesn’t trust that their employees will hold to the company’s or organization’s belief system and will get birth control?
Do they really want to pay for more births?
Is the only way for any Religious Organization to gain more followers is for them to breed them?
And of course- Why in the hell do they get to dictate policy to people who are not even apart of their belief system?
Thank the gods I got this over and done with.
