So these are magic contraceptive pills that cost nothing to produce?
The 'compromise' is a typical Obama lie. Those of us living in the real world understand that we would still be subsidizing the production and distribution of those pills.
Forcing religious people to violate their consciences and work with companies that distribute products they abhor is still wrong any way to pretend to slice it.
The only upside on this is that Obama is incompetent enough to do with the Liberals have done in Canada - push more of the Catholic vote to the conservative side. At least the Liberals didn't have the precedent staring them in the face.
Evangelicals largely bailed on the Democrats a long time ago, while practicing Catholics still stayed despite the abortion industry's stranglehold on the Dems. Republicans see an opening that will open doors into the Catholic and Hispanic constituencies.
Why do you think a Catholic is suddenly the favourite to win the GOP nomination?
One side is playing chess, and the other checkers.
