When one reads about the 30 some cases filed against the Health Care law by groups claiming it infringes on their religious freedom, there is only one conclusion. It does not.
The requirement most groups are subject to to provide medicine that, among other things, prevents pregnancies is there for a health reason. That medicine treats health care not involved with pregnancy. Thousands of women are now taking the medicine for these reasons.
Nevertheless, certain religious organizations, and private firms with a political agenda, do not want the medicine in their health care programs. Obamacare has a provision for religious groups. They can apply for an exemption. Some of the details of the exemption are still being worked out, but it is there.
So, if the Catholic Church does not want their employees who are doing religious work to have this provision in its health care plan, and they are not required to do so, what is their beef? It is that they have to apply for the exemption. They are claiming that because they have to apply for an exemption, their religious freedom is being infringed upon.
Exactly the opposite is true. They are not required to provide birth control medicine by Obamacare.
If the court cases are not about religious freedom, what are they about? It is about the Presidential election. By creating the impression their religious freedom is being compromised, they can convince gullible voters something which is not true is true.
These groups are supporting Mitt Romney.
