The ObamaCare Provision That Compels You To Pay For My Contraception


The storm of controversy surrounding the provision in ObamaCare that will force America’s many Catholic institutions to fund, for example, sterilizations, contraceptives, and morning-after pills for their employees — “despite each of these being fully athwart fundamental Catholic doctrine on sexuality, abortion and life,” as Rex Murphy eloquently put it — has many people like me wondering the following:

Why suddenly the big furor now? I mean, this is socialism:

I don’t pay for my own medicine, because it’s not my responsibility: it’s yours.

This is exactly what you voted for when you voted for Barack Obama.

Please don’t insult us by being surprised now, after all the time we spent trying to tell you.

Governmental compulsion: it’s the American way.

“We’ve actually been operating in a way entirely consistent with free-market principles.” — Barack Obama, 2009

    My wife and I are in our late fifties. Why should we be forced to pay for something we don’t need and don’t want?
    Why is it okay to discriminate against us, just because we’re not Catholic?
    I remember now: liberal morality justifies the use of discriminatory force.

    That’s right, Dale. Your life isn’t your own because we’re part of one big social organism, and the government is the only entity that can legitimately decree how we live. Think of it as a landlord-tenant relationship: government is landlord, we the people are the tenants.

    This, after all, is the exact analogy a number of our current liberal politic-economic philosophers espouse.

    Happy Valentine’s Day.

    Ray, I miss you and think of you often. We stay busy in our struggle, trying to figure out a way that our lives can be our own.
    We focus on our health, exercise, good food. I imbibe in the fashion Anthony Quinn would call for “a man’s soul”. The job is merciless, I do it because I have so few choices these days. Democrats say I’m rich because I have an income that increased due to the Bush tax cuts. But, if I lose my job and don’t replace the income quickly, I’m on the fast track to old folks home and government dependency. Rich my ass.
    My Dad was at Pearl Harbor when the Japanese bombed it, and was part of two Pacific invasions in WWII. Now he’s in assisted living in the Springs. I visit when I can, try to get him to move up here, but he won’t, and it saddens me to watch the way the system discards with our old people. I would rather die with my boots on than fall prey to what they do to us in their Utopia.
    Not that they give a flying fuck what I want. I have to pay for abortions rather than save for retirement.
    I try to learn from what I see. I don’t have the answers, Ray. But I know that Obama and his Democrats have one interest, and that is their own selfish power, and fuck you and fuck me and fuck Catholics and fuck Republicans and fuck anyone that disagrees with their liberal morality.

    Frank Herbert made the point in the Dune series that if you can destroy something (e.g. the spice), you control it.
    Obama and his Democrats are destroying my future. I guess that makes you right, that my life is not my own. Not as long as it is under the dictates of liberal ideology in place of the Constitution.

    I have no children but I am forced to pay taxes to send yours to school.

    My Father sent his five children to Catholic school so he paid for his and paid for yours.

    I’ll make you a deal, take the money I spend on your children’s education and use it to pay for your contraception. Winner, Winner, Chicken dinner!

    Obama’s science czar says people from large families have lower IQs. Guess that makes you a dumb ass.

    Sadly Dale, for you, contraception has come too late. If your weak statement is true then I would guess by the quality its contents that your sibling count is enormous. I assume you are the youngest male with lots of older brothers.

    Jeff, what is truly sad is that we are discussing foul things like Obama and his czars, and worse still that they are actually a part of our “government”. You appear articulate to me, so I’m not assessing your intelligence.
    Forgive my terse phrasing. I more correctly meant to say, “according to a bigoted hateful czar in Obama’s White House that wants the power of population control, you would be deemed a dumb ass because you are from a large and religious family.”

    I accept your apology since you were obviously the victim of a feral “implied subject of a clause”.

    Which reminds me of a time I was walking down the sidewalk with a friend who was regaling me with a story of a crazed street person he had encountered. His rendition of the tale went so far as to re-enact the subject’s words, volume, and animated arm flailing. After noticing the reactions of those passing by I remarked to my friend, “Do you know that I am the only person on the block who knows the difference between you and the subject of your story? And I have my doubts”.
