Obama Reinforces Support for HHS Contraceptive Mandate

After observing the licking that Planned Parenthood gave to Komen, Obama doubled down on the HHS’ controversial mandate on contraceptives, that would even force religious institutions to subsidize birth control drugs.

“The power to decide whether or not to use contraception lies with a woman – not her boss,” said Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y. “What is more intrusive than trying to allow an employer to make medical decisions for someone who works for them?”

Sorry Ms. Gillibrand, there is a major difference between rejecting someone’s freedom to take birth control and not subsidizing their freedom to do so.  Nice rhetoric.
