IWF – Mandates Are Anything But Pro-Choice

IWF – Mandates Are Anything But Pro-Choice.

“But outrage with the HHS mandate about “free” contraceptive-services coverage has nothing to do with the question of abortion, or anyone’s particular view about the morality of the contraceptive services that are covered by the mandate. It’s the mandate itself—the idea of government forcing people to take action that’s against their moral code—that’s the outrage.

An HHS requirement forbidding health insurers from offering comprehensive coverage of legal contraceptive practices would be just as outrageous.

That’s why those who celebrate this mandate should be warned: The power government accumulates today and uses to advance your agenda could be used against you tomorrow.”

The issue of abortion and contraception is a distraction from the core issue at stake in this HHS mandate. The core issues are what are the proper limits of government, and are we a people tolerant enough to respect that others have differing views?

There is nothing pro-choice about the HHS mandate.
