Catholic Bishops not satisfied with Obama’s contraception compromise

Washington (CNN) - The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops does not support the Obama administration’s revised proposal for providing insurance coverage for contraception, saying it falls short of addressing concerns about religious freedom.

In a response to the policy update announced last week by the Department of Health and Human Services, the church leaders said the policy offers “second-class status to our first-class institutions in Catholic health care, Catholic education and Catholic charities.”

    Your analogy of death camps to abortion is totally incorrect, inexcusable, and disgusting.
