The Obama administration engages in full-out war against pro-Life people *UPDATED*

As others have commented, the Catholic Church is making the loudest noises about the new Obama Care mandate regarding birth control, abortifacients, and sterilization, but the policy is really a strike against everyone who is pro-Life in America.  If you’re a pro-Life employer, you have to pay for your employees’ abortion pills.  If you’re a pro-Life health insurance company (or health insurance company employee) you must write policies that cover every woman’s birth control, sterilization, and abortifacients.  If you are a health insurance consumer (as we all must be in Obama’s America), you will pay for abortions.

Anybody with a pro-Life conscience, even if that person has arrived at that position without benefit of organized religion, is in the line of fire.

But if you’re thinking that Obama is hostile to religion, you’re right about that too.  Check out the first update to the Anchoress’ post about the health care mandate, and you’ll see that Obama is starting to put the squeeze on in other areas when it comes to people of faith.

I’m hoping that hubris is driving the administration’s unpopular decisions now, in an election year.  To date, though, the administration has shown itself to be sufficiently Machiavellian that I wonder if it knows something about the upcoming elections that the rest of us don’t know.

UPDATE:  Oh, and for the pointedly humorous take on Obama’s policy stand, I know you’ll enjoy this.  I’ve come to the conclusion that we live in a very peculiar world, one that sees me, a loosey-goosey theist (sort of), deeply offended by the federal executive’s full force attacks on religious freedom in America.

    That is fascinating, shirleyelizabeth, because it wasn’t just any old on-line petition.  Bad Catholic quite cleverly went to the petition website that the White House set up.  I need to follow through on this one.

    The Left is interested in war against you. Even if you are not interested in war with the Left.

    Frankly, this entire exercise by the Obama Administration, via Sebelius and the HSS, is an blatant affront to the Constitution.  The so-called ‘walkback’, a.k.a. ‘accommodation’ (only the Liberals malign language this way), simply cemented their initial position.  It is this Administration’s continued efforts to achieve their version of Utopia by all means short of a gun (gee, with Fast and Furious, maybe ‘the gun’ too).   The Constitution of the United States is protecting this nation from becoming a European, African, Asian or South American socialist tyranny.  If the Constitution is ignored, unenforced, considered irrelevant becoming simply a parchment under glass, you can put a fork in the USA, it will be gone.

    The WH may be trying to play this off like they unintentionally stepped on a few toes, but they’ve been planning on ramming this and similar things down our throats for some time.
    Like Eric Holder said last year about “civil” rights:  “We’ve also expanded enforcement efforts to guarantee that in our work places, our military bases, in our housing and lending markets, in our voting booths in our border areas, in our schools and places of worship. And I mean all places of worship.”

    The feds are not here to help you. Simply because the Constitution that keeps you safe, is what stands in their way of totalitarian dominion in the service of their corrupt and evil political masters. Bureaucratic overlords not withstanding.

    Slaves have no rights. When will AMericans figure that out?
