Responding to Arkansas Times bloggers about Obamacare and abortion

On June 20, 2012 on the Arkansas Times Blog I asserted:

Rude Rob Boston of Americans United favored President Obama speaking at Notre Dame but it turned out that after President Obama got the honorary degree he went out and now is going to force the catholic institutions to provide free abortions under Obamacare. (By the way we have seen rudeness from Rob Boston before and he spread misinformation too before.)

William D. Lindsay responded, “Care to provide any substantiation for that bald-faced lie?”

I responded with these posts:

Infamous Andy asked, “@Saline: So you think that, because ND gave an honorary degree, President Obama should have deferred to the wishes of the Catholic church? Is that what you’re suggesting.”

The answer is no. Actually Rob Boston argued that the catholics should have no problem with President Obama speaking at their university and I made the point in my post that the catholics should have barred Obama from coming because of his position on abortion and it turns out later that I was right…On 2-29-12 the Heritage Foundation noted:
Senator Roy Blunt (R-Missouri) has fought for religious liberty against the Obamacare assault. He plans to offer this week Senate Amendment No. 1520 to S. 1813, the highway authorization bill, to protect the right to religious liberty against the Obamacare mandate. The Blunt Amendment notes that, until the enactment of the Obamacare statute in 2010, “the Federal Government has not sought to impose specific coverage or care requirements that infringe on the rights of conscience . . . .” The Blunt Amendment would override the Obamacare mandate that religious institutions provide coverage for abortion-inducing drugs, contraceptives, and sterilization when it is contrary to their faiths, allowing them to keep their faiths and provide health care coverage for their employees….William D. Lindsey asserted:@Saline: “If someone wants abortion inducing drugs and they work for a religious organization then they will be able to get them under obamacare.”

Sorry, but that’s not true.

If you are correct then why are the catholic institutions all up in arms?

Finally I posted this:

Take a look at this video from the Heritage Foundation called “Religious Liberty: Obamacare’s First Casualty.” It lays out all the facts:

Religious Liberty: Obamacare’s First Casualty

Uploaded by on Feb 22, 2012 | The controversy over the Obama Administration’s anti-conscience mandate and the fight for religious liberty only serves to highlight the inherent flaws in Obamacare. This conflict is a natural result of the centralization laid out under Obamacare and will only continue until the law is repealed in full.
